Have you ever played online blackjack before?
If not, you really don’t know what you are missing because as well as being a hugely enjoyable game to play, it is also one of the easiest online casino games to make a profit from.
Can you remember when we spoke about the RTP (return to player) percentage in the blog post about casino bonuses?
Well, if I was to tell you that the RTP for blackjack is usually over 99% you will probably be shocked, but your first question would probably be, how can you come up with an accurate RTP figure when a game of online blackjack is played by the player as opposed to the casino as in the case of online slots.
The answer to that question my fried is very simple and comes in the form of an easy-to-follow chart which can revolutionise your blackjack playing skills.
The perfect blackjack strategy
The perfect blackjack strategy is basically a chat that shows you exactly what hand to play when given the dealer's hand.
As an example, the dealer has a 6 of spades and a 9 of diamonds to your King of clubs.
All you need to do is follow the chart and it will tell you to ‘hit’
It really is as simple as that.
Every outcome which the dealer has when compared to your hand is covered, all you do is follow the instructions.
Admittedly, it may prove to be a little cumbersome if you were playing blackjack at your local land-based casino, in fact it would probably not be allowed but for online casino play, the perfect blackjack strategy and a game of online blackjack is a match made in heaven.
You are probably thinking that this perfect blackjack strategy is available from some secret website at a cost of a few hundred quid, but nothing could be further from the truth.
Just Google ‘Perfect blackjack strategy’ and the chart is there (from multiple sources) for you to download and profit from.
You will find that after using it a few times, you will only need to refer to it now and again and before you know it, the perfect blackjack strategy will be etched into your brain.
Using this strategy will put you into the expert blackjack player category in no time at all, even if you have never played a game of blackjack in your life.
Any more blackjack playing tips?
Well, since you ask, I’ll tell you about a staking method which has always served me well when playing online blackjack.
You will often find when playing online blackjack that you have winning and losing streaks.
Nothing sinister in play, it’s just how it is so let’s say that you are using stakes of £5 per game.
If I win two games in a row, I’ll raise the stake to £10, if I lose that game, I’ll go back to £5 again but if I win another two games staking £10, I’ll then double the stake to £20.
Same again, if I lose the hand with the £20 stake, I’ll go back down to the starting stake which is £5.
However, if I win another two games, I’ll raise the stakes to £40 and see how that goes.
It is not uncommon to win seven or eight hands in a row and you don’t have to be a maths genius to work out how much your bank can increase as a result of these winning runs.
It is important to note though, never be tempted to carry on using the higher stakes after a losing hand because if you do, there is a good chance you will see your profits wiped out.
Take it seriously
The thing to remember when playing online blackjack is that you have got to concentrate.
Even though it is easy to follow the perfect blackjack strategy, it is not like just pressing the start button on a slot game.
You need to concentrate on the hand you have been dealt and the stakes you are using.
I can remember playing online blackjack when I was meant to be looking after my young children and all I can say about that is that it didn’t end well, and I actually ended up losing a couple of hundred quid!
It also goes without saying, if you are under the influence of alcohol, or anything else for that matter, don’t even think about getting involved with a game of online blackjack, leave it for another day, the casino will still be there ready to welcome you with open arms.
Give it a go
All that is left for me to say is ‘give it a go’.
Download and print out the perfect blackjack strategy, load up a demo version of a game of blackjack from an online casino and you will realise that you are now an expert blackjack player.
Let me know how you get on.
