Useful Tips for playing blackjack online
Use Bankroll management
When you deposit to play in the brick and mortar or online casino, you should never spend more money for the chips then you can afford yourself to lose without significant emotional stress. That’s a common sense. Game is a fortune. Both outcomes are probable: you may win or you may lose. Don’t let the latter outcome affect your life.
You may also want to use this recommendation related to the bankroll management in blackjack:
When I personally encounter a losing streak (i.e. I'm down 20 times my standard bet for that session) at a relatively favorable game of online blackjack (with a house advantage of 0.20% or less), I like to double my standard bet and keep it there until I am back to even for the session. Once I am back to even, I return to my original standard bet. Mathematically, I don't think there is any proof that this will improve your results, but emotionally it makes sense - and I don't think it hurts my odds (unless I run out of money faster because of an extreme losing streak). I wouldn't do this if I didn't have a sufficient bankroll to support the higher bet at that point (i.e. 50 times the higher bet). My thinking is that if the odds are close to 50/50 and I just experienced a significant loss, then doubling my standard bet should get me back to even much sooner. Even if I continue to lose for a while (at double the speed), I will come back at the same speed and then recoup my original loss at double the original speed.
Choosing Appropriate Casino
When you go ahead to choose an online casino to play blackjack, use this simple recommendations to be sure to have a lot of fun and great gaming experience:
- Select one of the trusted online casinos
- Take advantage of the casino bonus offers. Don’t forget reading the casino’s bonus offers. They vary significantly, particularly for blackjack.
- Learn the online casino’s blackjack rules and use appropriate basic blackjack strategy for those rules
- Look for the extra opportunities, like the unique “playing blackjack as a dealer” option, for instance. This will increase your edge before the house, and deliver you more exciting experience.
Using Practice mode (Play free blackjack)
One of the best features of online casinos is that they invariably allow you to play all of their games, and blackjack particularly, for free. This oportunity of playing free blackjackgives you the chance to practice and familiarize yourself with the rules and particular nuances of that casino's games. In some cases, the online casinos provide descriptions of their game rules that are less than crystal clear. So, the best way to test things out is to play for free. Take advantage of this opportunity before putting real money on the line.
