Blackjack is a game of skills. And the manner each player plays his card marks the difference between clever player and fortunate player. Here lies the importance of blackjack strategies.

There are three things that matter in blackjack. They are your own cards, the dealer's cards and other players' cards. Sometimes many people overlook the other players' cards. But this is very important because it will help you to know when to hit and when not to hit.

Blackjack odds

The house advantage in blackjack is 0.5% especially when you apply the basic blackjack strategy. A typical example of blackjack games with such a house advantage is blackjack with multiple card decks. Based on the mathematical calculation already done across the decades - though, it does not guarantee 100 percent certainty - the implication of the above house edge is that you are supposed to lose 5 cent if you stake $10.

However, the above does not suggests 5 cent will be lost by every player on a stake of $10. Rather, it gives the expected average amount a player should lose according to the calculation. But, it is possible for a player to gain $100 and also possible for a player to go down by $100.5. Whatever be the case the odds still remain 0.50%.

In blackjack game, some casinos allow a player to give up playing when he thinks that he has not got the winning hand. When this happen, the casino will take half of the betting money while the player will keep the remaining half.

But surrendering as in the above manner increases the house edge to 7%. This is indeed too high. It is therefore better for a player to opt for surrender seldom. However, the house advantage will go down if you can apply the surrender option properly and wisely.

A hand with a soft 17 brings the house advantage to 0.2%. In the light of the above, if you want to play online casino, you should search for online casino where the dealer is made to stand once he holds a hand with soft 17.

Another thing that you should consider when you are playing online casino is the payouts of the odds. There are some online casino that will give a payout of 1 is to 1. However, there are some bonuses offered by these casinos in order to compensate the payout. Spanish blackjack is a typical example of this. In this blackjack, there is fantastic payout but the cards with the value of 10 are taken out of the deck. This removes 25% from the deck of cards.

The understanding of the odd is a matter of necessity.
