Tips for Winning at Online Blackjack

After reading this guide, you’ll increase your shot of winning online.

Blackjack or “twenty-one” is an age-old card game that most probably originated in the casinos of France somewhere around the 1760s. The first recorded name of the game was vingt-et-un, which translates as “twenty-one.” The game quickly spread throughout Europe and then to North America thanks to French colonialists. Since then, blackjack became available in most casinos around the world as well as our computers and mobile phones. And with the advent of new technologies, the famous card game also found its way to the world of virtual reality.

If you’re up for the challenge, read on and learn about the top tips you can use to beat your opponents when playing online.

Firstly, if you’re reading this, you’re probably familiar with the basic tactics and strategies of the game. If that’s not the case, you should go through an in-depth guide to blackjack rules before beginning. There are two, three, four, five or more players, plus the dealer. You use the standard 52-card pack, which is usually multiplied by seven or eight to prevent players from card counting.

Cards from 2–10 are worth their face value, and each of the face cards (queen, king, etc.) are worth 10. The object of the game is to defeat the dealer by getting to a count as close to 21 as possible but without going over twenty-one.

Secondly, you should know that the game of blackjack, just like poker, is a mind sport where a high level of skill is essential. Especially in professional settings, a good blackjack strategy centers on logic and mathematical reasoning.

Now, to increase the probability of winning the game, you should know which variant of the game you’ll be best. There are only a little over two dozen different blackjack variants — from Spanish 21 to Blackjack Switch to Double Attack. So, before putting your cash in the game, be sure you know which version it is — and know the rules inside out.

Next, playing online has a big advantage over getting your chips on the table in a land-based casino. And that’s because you can choose the casino provider based on their house edge (which is like an inbuilt profit commission from each player’s bet). By checking different platforms and doing the research up front, you’ll realize that while some casino’s house edge stays around 1 percent or 2 percent, the more user-friendly ones charge only 0.2 percent to 0.5 percent. To give you some context, most slot games have a house edge of 4 percent to 6 percent.

You don’t need all the regular hardware if you’re playing online.

But there are more things to consider besides the house edge. You should make sure that your blackjack site or software is secure. Before placing any bets, check the online reviews, look up their name in search engines and make sure it has an SSL security encryption, so your private and bank data stay safe. The best online casinos run on random number generators (RNGs), regularly checked to make sure no one is tinkering with the system.

Another tip that you should keep in mind is to check for solid welcome bonuses before committing to any single online casino provider. Although most reputable casinos offer attractive bonuses that’ll follow your first real money deposit. Getting a bonus at the start is also an excellent way to get your feet wet and learn the game without spending too much of your cash. In most casinos, you’ll get at least $500 for starters, but the bonus can go as high up as $1,600, so always pay attention to get the best deals.

Playing blackjack is far from simple and random. As mentioned at the beginning, this is a game of skill that attracts some of the best strategic minds of each generation. But it’s not as scary as it may seem. Once you go through a few rounds and get some wins and a few losses, you’ll be much more confident when it comes to placing bets at a virtual table.
