One of the most popular games, both online and offline is blackjack. Most people would consider that you can never truly win whilst gambling, online or offline, and in the long run, you would end up losing money unless you are aware of promociones de apuestas. In the case of blackjack, this need not necessarily be the case. All you need is a little knowledge and a little practice. This article contains 4 strategies that you should implement if you wish to make money playing blackjack.

  • Card Counting If you have any knowledge of the game of blackjack, you have no doubt heard the term ‘card counting.’ You have probably also thought it a difficult concept to pick up and beyond your own skills. You’ll be pleased to know that card counting is actually quite easy.

For any card 2-6 you give a value of +1, 7-9’s have a value of 0, and 10-A’s you give a value of -1. Low-valued cards (2-6) are good for the house, high valued cards 10-A are good for you the player, and 7-9 is pretty much neutral. You need to keep note of all cards dealt out and add and subtract your +1’s and -1’s. The higher the count, the more you should bet as the game is moving in your favor.

  • Your bankroll and the size of your bets. Before considering any gambling, you need to work out your bankroll. This is how much money you can afford to lose without it adversely affecting your lifestyle. Once you have your bankroll, you can work out your betting unit. This is 1/1000 of your overall bankroll.

Now you can work out how much you should gamble at most in each session. This should be at least 32 betting units. Example: If you want to bet $10 a hand, you should bring as least $320. If you lose half your bankroll, then drop your betting units by half. If you win half your bankroll (total $480) then raise your betting units 1 ½ time (to $25). By constantly adjusting your betting unit, you will never go broke, and your bankroll will increase in the long run.

  • Your maximum bet size When betting, you need to ensure you have enough money in your hand to split or double down, so do not et more than a quarter of the cash you have in your hand.
  • Your Optimal Betting Strategy. Your optimal Blackjack betting strategy should involve you keeping a running count. This involves taking note of the number of decks remaining and comparing it with the count you have been keeping above. Divide the running count by the number of decks remaining. This number, called the True Count, is designed to help you improve your betting. If you have a high true count, bet that many betting units on a hand, less one. SO if your true count is 4, bet 3 betting units. If the true count is low, bet the minimum bet for the table until the count comes into your favor, or walk away from the table.

Blackjack can be a lot of fun, and it is one game in which you can beat the dealer f you play right. Practice at home with your friends and family. Take a deck of cards and practice counting; if you count out a whole deck you should have 0 when you are done. Try it, it’s great practice. Good luck and have fun!
