Online Blackjack and Cheat Sheet


Hitting and Standing in Online Blackjack

One of the most basic decisions you have to make when playing blackjack is to decide on whether to hit or stand. If you are holding less than 17, your chances of winning are much lower unless the Dealer busts. Alternatively if the Dealer is showing an Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9 or 7 and you have a hand lower than 17, you need to take a hit as the chances of you busting are slim.

Doubling Down in Online Blackjack

One of the fastest ways to make it when playing blackjack is to double down at any given opportunity. This can make you double your bet or end up costing you twice as much if you do it at a bad time. Always double down any hand totalling 11.

Splitting in Online Blackjack

If you do it with the right cards splitting can be highly beneficial. Do it badly and it could end up costing you a lot more.
