Impressive Online Blackjack
If there is one casino game that separates the skilled from the lucky it is Blackjack. Unlike most other casino games where the house edge is set, with Blackjack, playing the right strategy can significantly reduce the house edge and thereby create more winning opportunities.
Blackjack is the game of choice for almost every professional gambler as it is all about knowing when to bet big and when to hold back. It is also one of those rare games that are very easy to learn but extremely difficult to master.

The Basics of Blackjack
If you are a complete novice and know nothing about Blackjack, the basics are quite easy to learn. Blackjack is a card game where the object is to beat the dealer. This is achieved by creating a point score of 21 points or as close to 21 points as possible without going over 21. This is why Blackjack is often called “21”. In the game, the dealer will deal you two cards and himself two cards with one card facing up.
This up-facing dealer card is extremely important and is what most players will base their entire strategy around. In Blackjack, you need to analyse your hand, look at what the dealer is showing and decide whether you need to take another card or stick with what you have. If you take another card and your point score goes over 21, you will go bust and lose the hand. If your score is low to start with, you run the risk of the dealer having a higher scoring hand.
This is where practice and strategy come into play. Unlike in online Roulette or online Slots, strategy can give you the edge when playing online or mobile Blackjack!
If the dealer is showing a high card such as a 10 or an ace, there is a good chance he will beat your hand. If you have a low scoring hand, you would need to take an extra card in order to get your score as high as possible. If the dealer is showing a low scoring card such as a 2 or 3, any hand of 16 or above should be a safe bet and you should avoid taking an extra card.
You also have the option of splitting your hand if you are dealt two of the same valued cards. The final option is called doubling down. This is where you can take one extra card and double the bet. This is mainly used if you are dealt an ace and are confident of a win. In Blackjack, strategy is everything. Before you dive in and play for real money, it is best to spend some time in practice play, honing your skills until you are confident.
