There are a number of things the novice, intermediate or advanced player can do to increase their chances at the blackjack table. Below is a selection of blackjack tips to help you prolong your ride at the table:
First Important Blackjack tip of all - The object of the blackjack game is to beat the dealer. Far too many times blackjack tips are written that state that the object of the game is to get close to 21.
The game is not possible to beat consistently. This may be the second most important of all the blackjack tips to remember you can't always win. Accept that losses are a part of the game. This will help your mindset as much as anything and will keep you focused on your playing, keeping your skill level up.
Find a table whose minimum is no more than 5% of you total stash. In picking a Blackjack table, consider rule variations that help the player like the option of doubling down on any two cards, or the dealer having to stand on soft 17. Even if you do not completely understand them, these rule variations can work to your advantage.
Start with the basics, Since the dealer has to hit on any hand 16 or lower, you will never win with less than 17 unless the dealer busts. Take a hit on any hand below 17 when the dealer shows ace, K, Q, J, 10, 9, or 8, cards that are unlikely to make the dealer bust. Stand on any hand above 11 when the dealer shows a 4,5, or 6, cards that will lead then dealer to bust more than 40% of the time.
Take insurance only if you have a gut feeling that the dealer has blackjack, or if you are card counting and aware of the cards remaining in the deck.
Blackjack "Doubling down" involves doubling your bet and receiving one additional Blackjack card when your suspect strongly that you'll beat the dealer by doing so. This is the player's chief advantage, so do not ignore this option. Doubling with 10 against a 9 or lower and with any hand of 11. Rules permitting, double with 9, or with "soft" hands (hands that count an ace as 11) of 13-17 against a 4, 5, or 6.
If you are dealt two Blackjack cards of the same value, you may "split" them, doubling your bet and playing two Blackjack hands. Never split 10's or 5's. Always split 8's or 7's against a dealer's card of equal or lower value. Always split 2's or 3's against a 4, 5, or 6. Always split aces. Never split face cards, 10's, or 5's.
Tip the Blackjack dealer, as they are not unionized, work for lousy wages, and depend on your generosity. Unless you are winning serious stakes, a dollar chip every twenty or so hands is generally appropriate. If you want to make sure the dealer has your best interests at heart, place the tip right in front of your wagering circle, essentially turning it into a side bet on your hand. If you win, the dealer's tip doubles.
And last but important blackjack tip - Know when to walk away. A winning streak on a blackjack table can not last forever. Set a table limit for yourself and if you find yourself losing, take a break and save your remaining profits for another session.
These Blackjack tips are just the tip of the iceberg, So After all...Good Luck!
