Blackjack is easily one of the world’s most popular free online casino games and is featured as a highlight at many gaming establishments. Unlike slots and roulette, blackjack players may gain considerable influence over the outcome of the game by reducing the house advantage through careful and strategic game play. This element of control makes it a perennial favourite among seasoned card sharks and amateur players alike, and you can expect to see profits rather quickly once you learn the ropes.

How to play blackjack

The rules of blackjack are quite simple and game play follows a set procedure. The game is played with one or more standard decks of 52 cards, and each card is assigned a value:

  • Aces are worth 1 or 11 points
  • The numbers 2-10 are assigned their numerical values
  • Jacks, Kings, and Queens are each worth 10 points

The object of each hand of the game is to be the first player at the table – including the dealer – to collect a hand with a total value of 21 points, or a value as close as possible to that sum without exceeding 21. This goal can be accomplished in a finite number of ways, so it may be possible for players to greatly decrease the house edge by carefully studying the cards on the table and the possible outcomes that the next deal may produce and placing calculated wagers accordingly.

Using blackjack cheats and other popular blackjack tips

The outcomes of card games are often largely dependent on player skill, so it’s not surprising that the Internet is filled to the brim with “no-fail” blackjack strategies and “fool proof” blackjack cheats. Unfortunately, these systems are ineffective at best and may bring on disastrous results in a worst-case scenario, so it’s very important to guard yourself against dodgy and unproven blackjack systems. You should also be aware of the fact that even though certain scientifically proven strategies (such as card counting and outcome charts) can be very effective, they are also very difficult to master.
