12 Useful Tips to Help You Win at Blackjack


Beating Casino presents: 12 Useful Tips to
Help You Win at Blackjack As you probably know by now, Blackjack is
one of the most popular and loved casino games, both live and online, because it’s an easy
game to play and one that is more based on skill and less based on luck, so chances of
winning the game are much higher than the other casino games. We have talked a lot about the game of Blackjack
on our channel, but decided it’s time to refresh a few important and useful tips to
help you win the game. So, if you’re new to the game of Blackjack
or just want a reminder of a few tips to increase your chances of winning the game, then this
video is for you. #1. Start Small
Don’t rush yourself to win fast or thinking you’ll win a lot of money right from the
start by betting a lot of money. You can make a huge bet and win, but it’s
best to be cool, calm, and grow steady with your game and bankroll. The more confidence you’ll gain, the more
hands you’ll win, making less and less mistakes. When you sit down at the Blackjack table,
watch your friends first, have a drink, see how the dealer is playing and handling the
game and get an idea of the pace of the current game, just feel it to get into it. Once you’re ready to make your bet and play,
start with the minimum bet, warm yourself into the game. As you get more and more into the game and
increase your bankroll, than you can start betting for higher amounts to win even more
money. #2. Managing Your Bankroll
It is important to play for an amount of money that you are “willing to lose.” Sounds weird, but there’s a lot of logic
behind it. You should play for an amount of money that
you can lose and continue your day (and life) regularly as if nothing happened. This way, you’ll not lose your pants, house
or family, but also play freely, enjoy the game more, be less afraid during the game
and make less mistakes, which will also increase your chances of winning. So, set yourself with a bankroll you can lose
in the worst case scenario, be it $100, $200, $500 or whatever feels right to you. Follow the bankroll rule, don’t chase your
losses, play freely and enjoy the game. #3. Choosing The Right Table
You’ll find many Blackjack tables at the casino, but not all are the same, so it’s
important to choose the right table for you. This means, that you should look for a table
with liberal playing rules. What does that mean exactly? Here are some of the things you should look
for when choosing a Blackjack table to play at:
Choose a table where the dealer stands on soft 17
Choose a table where the dealer pays on 18 If you’re playing on a budget, look for
a table with a minimum bet that suits your bankroll
Play at tables that pay 3-2 on Blackjack and avoid tables that pay 6-5 or even money on
Blackjack Choose a table where players can double down
on any two cards Choose a table with fewer playing decks (single
or double-deck game), as chances of winning increase as opposed to tables with multiple
playing decks (6 or 8-deck game). There’s no guarantee that you’ll be able
to find a Blackjack table that meets all these requirements, but you get the idea of what
to look for at a Blackjack table before deciding to sit down and play it. #4. Make Basic Blackjack Strategy Your Best Friend
It sounds as if basic strategy is meant for beginner players, but that’s far from it. Even the pros still use basic strategy because
basic is…well…the basics, the foundation to win the game. Don’t try to read and learn all kind of
complex and advanced Blackjack strategies, as basic strategy will do just fine to win
the game, at both live and online Blackjack games. Learn and remember when to hit, stand, split
and double on Blackjack hands and just like that, with enough practice, you’ll be able
to potentially reduce the house edge in your favor. Blackjack is not a guessing game and mathematicians
have been studying the game of Blackjack for more than 60 years. This is how the basic strategy has come to
life and works to this day. So, learn the basic Blackjack strategy, practice
it, memorize and then hit the tables and see how you’ve become a much better player and
win a lot more hands and money implementing it during the game. #5. Use a Strategy Card
This may seem like an obvious tip, but chances are you won’t find many players (if any)
using a strategy card at the casino. This doesn’t need to concern you. If you don’t remember the basic Blackjack
strategy chart by heart, it’s fine to use a strategy card. Don’t worry about what other players will
say, because your goal is to make money, not please anybody else. So, you let them talk and laugh, while you’ll
be laughing your way to the bank. You can find and use a laminated plastic strategy
card or print the chart yourself. It’s perfectly legal and smart to use them
when you’re not sure about the right decision for a certain hand or in order to avoid making
mistakes. Just know, that for security reasons, casino
do not allow players to place strategy cards or anything else on the table, but you can
freely hold it in your hands and use the card and the chart when you’re unsure about a
hand at play. #6. Ignore the Insurance Bet
It’s smart to have insurance in life as you don’t know what can happen, but this
does not apply to Blackjack. The house will have a 6% advantage over you
in an insurance bet. So, if you make a Blackjack, you will only
win your initial bet back. If the dealer wins, then it’s a no win and
no loss situation. Remember that insurance is a sucker bet. Don’t make it, ignore it. #7. Avoid the First Base Seat
If it’s possible, try to avoid sitting in the first base seat. If you sit at the first base seat and the
dealer is quick at handing out cards, it means that you will have less time to think and
ponder about your next move. On the other hand, if you sit a couple of
seats down, then you’ll have more time to think about your next move. #8. Don’t Listen to Other Players
People talk at the Blackjack table, maybe less than at the poker table, but there’s
still chatter among the players. Don’t let this chatter surrounding you effect
your game. The game of Blackjack is between you and the
dealer, no one else. Playing decisions of other players have no
effect in the long run on your odds of winning. So, stay calm, stay focused, use the basic
Blackjack strategy and concentrate on your own hand and the dealer’s hand to make the
right decision to win that hand. #9. Don’t Play Tables That Use a Continuous
Shuffler Continuous shuffling machines shuffle cards
after each round. The result is more hands that are being dealt
per hour, and so more exposure of your bankroll to the house edge. You should play at tables that use a traditional
mechanical shuffler. On these tables, the cards are shuffled after
50%-75% of them have been played. You can also play at tables where the dealer
manually shuffles the cards. It’s also wise to play at tables with other
players, as this will reduce the number of hands you play per hour, which will decrease
the exposure of your bankroll to the house edge. #10. Go Easy on the Booze
When you play at the casino, alcoholic drinks may be “free” which will tempt you to
drink and have fun. There’s nothing wrong with drinking a little
bit, but remember that you are playing to win and make money, so go easy on the booze
and stay focused on the game, making the right decisions. #11. Practice Makes Perfect
Just like anything else in life, practice makes perfect and it’s no different when
it comes to Blackjack. You can practice Blackjack by playing free
at online casinos, playing free online Blackjack and when you feel ready, deposit and make
money online or head over to the land-based casino near you. There are hundreds of great promotions you
can use to practice Blackjack online, amongst them are free cash, no deposit bonuses, match
bonuses and more. #12. Enjoy The Game
First and foremost, you should enjoy the game. When you’re enjoying the game you’re playing,
you feel good, you make less mistakes and you increase your chances of winning. No matter if you decide to play live or online
casino, play with a good mood, enjoy the play and the game, remember that it’s just a
game and use all the tips we’ve just mentioned. This way, you’ll be closer to winning at
Blackjack, a game that is based on skill and less on luck. It doesn’t get any better than that. Thank you for watching. Enjoy our channel with more videos, tips and
