Never Buy Blackjack Insurance

This is just a cheap way to make even more money out of the player. Even if they haven’t you might still win the original bet back, but even if they have got Blackjack hiding you will only lose the original bet and you should never be betting that much in a single game that you can’t afford to lose in the first place.

Know When to Split

While any two of the same card can be split there are better odds of a win with certain cards. While others close to this range are OK the 2 best, in my opinion, are Aces and 8s

Know When to Stand

While some people say anything over 16 is worth standing on I suggest you stand when your hand is 12+ when the dealer has at least one 2 or a 6. This should (in theory anyway) give you the best odds of coming out on top.

Know When you Hit

While I did suggest you stand on anything 12 or over if the dealer has anything showing higher than a 7 I suggest you risk a single “hit” again. While this might seem like a risky move not hitting when the dealer has a 7 or over is even riskier.

Play Slow, Learn Fast

Don’t jump into a new game a start betting large. You should try and gauge if the table is hot or cold. If the table is hot and you are having a good time up the betting amount by no more than 10% your first bet. That way, even if you stay and the table is cold you will last a fair while.

Don’t Play The “Systems”

Sorry to break this bad news to you, but there is no secret system of winning when it comes to Blackjack. If you are not playing the game to have some fun then stop playing. There is no money making system that will guarantee you a win, so don’t fall for the myths.

Set a Limit and Stick to it

I know, I know. You have probably heard this tip a thousand times before and will probably hear it a thousand times again. But its something that is important to keep the game of Blackjack just that! …a game! Make a limit on the amount of money you are willing to spend and stick to it. Even if you believe you will win big the next hand just walk away.

Stay Already, Know What is Happening

This is a tip that people think doesn’t apply if you are playing Blackjack online. But that is simply not true. Staying “compos mentis” even when playing online ensures you never gamble more than you can afford and you shouldn’t make silly mistakes.

Know The Rules of The Game

If you think there is only one set of rules when it comes to Blackjack you are sadly wrong, especially when it comes to online play. Make sure you know what style you are playing and more importantly that you know the exact odds of winning. With online sites, there is often infinite decks of cards so the odds of winning can be significantly less.

Chat, Relax, Enjoy

The best way to enjoy Blackjack is with other players both in a real casino or online. Make sure there is group chat, or at the very least a chat board on the side of the screen. But when it comes to real-world tables the busier a table is, it will often mean you will have more fun playing on it. After all, if a real-world table is busy, or the online Blackjack chatrooms are full, it will usually mean they are paying out more than usual. And even if they are not the group atmosphere should make it fun, even if you are losing.
