When you first look at a blackjack table, you can often see that it says something like blackjack pays 3 to 2 and insurance pays 2 to 1 . Pay 3 to 2 means that if you bet eg € 10 you win € 15 at blackjack. Insurance 2 to 1 means that you get back half your bet if the dealer gets blackjack and you paid insurance. We will play with tables that have these rules, we will not use the fast insurance rule because it gives worse odds in the end than if we do not. Another thing that can also be written on the blackjack table is dealer must stand on all 17 or dealer must hit.
The first statement means that the dealer must stay if he has 17 or more. The second statement means that the dealer must draw on soft 17. We will play on tables that have dealer must stand on all 17 which is a great advantage for the player. When you win another you increase to about € 9 or € 10, and when you lose you go back to € 5. If you play for € 5 as a bet, you should therefore increase your bet to about € 7 when you have won a hand. With this strategy, you instead increase the bet after each win, and return to your minimum bet in case of loss.
All of the above statements are to the benefit of the player and we will play at tables that meet as many of these as possible. If there is permission to surrender to give up it is best to do so when you have hard 15 or 16 and the dealer has 7 or more. Now let s move on to the basic blackjack strategy. Blackjack is a game where you win one moment and lose the next. The first thing to decide is how much you are willing to have as a bankroll, ie how much you have to play for.
If we call each bet a unit , you should have a bankroll of at least 400 units, and you should play about 50 hands at each game. This is the seed pros play. If you choose to play with € 1, you should therefore have € 400 in bankroll, if you choose to play with € 0.25, you should have € 100 and so on. Increasing and decreasing the stakes when playing is the key to success, it has been shown. When you win, you should increase your bet and when you lose, decrease it the increase should be about 25%.
