How to build a foundation in online blackjack

April 26, 2016

You can increase your payout rate significantly when you play online blackjack provided you make the necessary steps to apply the right strategies to win.

Of course because there are various types and forms of this popular table games available in our casino portfolio, it is not always obvious which the best strategies are. Instead of trying to learn each and every type and variant of online blackjack, it would be best to start building up a foundation first that can then be applied to your game. You can then move on to adjust from that strategy to the specific rules to maximise your payout rate.

Tactics in online blackjack

Your main aim in this game is not to get as close to 21 as possible without going over but to win and depending on the situation, to get the best chance of winning. When you hit with hard totals of 12 or higher, you are at high risk of going bust but even if both you and the dealer go bust, you will still lose the hand. Depending on the dealer’s card, you might want to stand or to give him the chance to go bust instead.

Understanding when to hit and when to stand will also rely on the strength of the dealer’s hand. If the dealer has a card between 2 and 6, he is more likely to go bust than if he has a seven or higher.

You also need to pay close attention to which card the dealer has instead of just focusing on your own hand.
