Do you fancy a game of blackjack? If so, then you’re going to want to read this article. Blackjack is being offered not only in land casinos but it is definitely one of the top pics in online casinos as well (and for good reasons). This game has the lowest house edge and it is pretty fun to play.
Obviously, the game is even more fun if you are actually winning, so do read further to find out some tips on how to win at the game.
Use the Basic Strategy
There is this concept known as the basic strategy in Blackjack where the idea is that you will essentially never go broke and that your prize money (should you win a lot of games) is going to increase much faster than not using the strategy at all.
So, using this relative figure, if you are playing with a wager of $25, you are expected to lose as much as $500. With the same wager but with the use of a basic strategy, you are only expected to lose as much as $100.
So, what’s the premise of the basic strategy? Well, the said plan of attack is actually a chart that allows you to know what things you need to do according to your current circumstances.
Now, you might think that it is sort of a cheat sheet and you might believe that it is illegal to use it in gambling establishments, but that is actually not the case. If anything, you are even encouraged to use it as it will help entice players to keep on playing.
I suggest that you get acquainted with the basic strategy before you start playing either in an online casino or a land casino.
Although the act of card counting is now deemed illegal in many casinos in Las Vegas, it is still a fun way to win. You see, you might think that the game is all about getting random cards each time you play but that is actually not the case.
Sure, it is easy to think that everything is random considering that the cards are shuffled by devices, but there are times where you can actually use the theory of probability to help you ‘somehow’ guess the next card to either be a high-value card or a low-value one.
Even though it is not recommended to count cards, you can still learn about them and use it whenever you want to play the game in the comfort of your own home.
I highly recommend that you learn about the Hi-Lo system as it is my personal favorite. Basically, you assign a +1 or -1 point for every low and high card. Low cards are 2-6 and High cards are 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace. There are also middle cards which are 7-9 and are considered neutral (hence, they get a 0).
It is always a good idea to get acquainted with the basic strategies first before you even start playing the game. Trust me, your odds of winning the game grows exponentially if you do so.
