Blackjack is a game with a high winning probability. However, even professional players sometimes make mistakes. The vast majority of mistakes that inexperienced Blackjack players make are somehow related to the basic strategy. Or rather, with deviations from the recommendations. Let's hope that you will be able to avoid such mistakes with the help of this article.


Basic Blackjack strategy

Basic Blackjack strategy is a set of rules that suggests the player how to play with a given set of cards against the dealer's fixed card. This basic strategy came up as a result of computer simulation and iteration of all possible variants of the cards. Thus, in each scenario, the player is offered the optimal version of the game, that is, either maximizing the potential gain or minimizing the potential loss. Following this strategy leads to a positive mathematical expectation for the player (about +0.19%), But please remember that following a basic strategy does not guarantee a win! Meaning of the cards: X - any 10-point card, A - ace. A soft hand, as opposed to a hard hand, is a hand in which an ace can be counted for 11 points without a bust.

The basic strategy:

1. Don’t use Insurance.

2. Hard hands:

Take up to 13 hard hands against the dealer 2 or 3.

Take up to 12 hard hands against the dealer 4,5,6.

Take up to 17 hard hands against the dealer 7,8,9.

3. Soft hands:

Take up to 18 soft hands against the dealer 2,3,4,5,6,7,8.

Take up to 19 soft hands against the dealer 9, X, A.

4. Hard double:

If you have 9 - double against dealer 3,4,5,6.

If you have 10 and 11 - double against the dealer 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9.

5. Soft double:

If you have A, 2, and A, 3 - double against the dealer's 5,6.

If you have A, 4, and A, 5 - double against the dealer's 4,5,6.

If you have A, 6, and A, 7 - double against the dealer's 3,4,5,6.

6. Split:

If you have 2,2 and 3,3 - split against the dealer 2,3,4,5,6,7.

If you have 4.4 - split against the dealer's 5.6.

If you have 5.5 - do not split (double vs 2-9).

If you have 6,6 - split against the dealer 2,3,4,5,6.

If you have 7.7 - split against the dealer 2,3,4,5,6,7.

If you have 8,8 - split against the dealer 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9.

If you have 9.9 - split against dealer 2,3,4,5,6,8,9 (from 2 to 9, but not against 7).

If you have X, X - do not split.

If you have A,A - split against dealer 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, X.

7. Surrender:

Against dealer A – Surrender if you have 5,6,7 and 12,13,14,15,16,17 points (including pairs).

Against dealer X - Surrender if you have 14,15,16 points (including pairs of 7,7 and 8,8).

Against dealer 9 - Surrender if you have 16 points (split 8,8).

Meanings:

H - Hit, take a card;

S – Stay;

P - Pair, Split;

D -Double;

Sur - Surrender, refusal.

Card counting in an online casino

Card counting in an online casino does not make any sense. It can only be used if you are playing with the live dealer. Otherwise, in an online casino, all the cards are shuffled before each hand. When the virtual dealer once again deals you cards, know that he now has all the decks at his disposal in full.

Attempts to use Insurance in Blackjack

When the dealer has an ace open, many players start to panic and accept the dealer's offer to use the Insurance option. However, Insurance is very unprofitable for the player, so you should always refuse to use it. There are exceptions to this rule, but again, they depend on the card account. In certain situations, the probability of the dealer forming a Blackjack is significantly increased, so the Insurance may help the player. But it is better to simply not use the Insurance until you have the opportunity to count the cards, and you do not learn to evaluate its feasibility.

Use of universal betting systems

The failure of betting systems (here we are talking about Martingale, Parlay, and others) has been repeatedly proven by experienced players, mathematicians, and even special software. Nevertheless, they are still popular among gambling fans. We still want to warn you: in Blackjack, such betting systems will not help you in the same way that they do not help you at Roulette. The size of the bet is determined by the size of your bankroll and the card count (if you are doing it). All other criteria are not so significant here.

Spinpug casino brings a land betting experience right into your home. Online Blackjack at Spinpug casino is available on desktops and mobile devices, basically on any device that’s connected to the Internet.
