Internet Blackjack

Winning is Easy

by Sacha Tarkovsky

Here we will examine the odds, best bets, and some strategy. If you haven’t played internet Blackjack is that the odds are far better than other games of chance like Roulette or Slots. So if you haven’t discovered internet Blackjack you should!

The important thing in Internet Blackjack as in any casino game is to win and collect money and here we show you how in simple steps.

Internet Blackjack is played 8 decks of cards and chances on a hand dealt from a full shoe 8 decks is as follows: a banker can win 0.46, a player 0.44, and a tie 0.09. Obviously the bank wins most of the time.The casino will take a commission on the winning Banker hand of 5% and payouts on tie bets of 9:1. This Gives the following advantages to the casino: on a banker bet the advantage is 1.056%. On a player bet its 1.24%. On a tie bet with 8:1 odds its 14.43%

Forget card counting and probability, this is a pure game of chance and each play is seperate from any other. All you need to know is the bet with the best odds of success and you will have as much chance of winning as any other player.

Common Sense Strategy

Never bet on the tie. The odds are overwhelmingly in the house’s favor Also, as the bank will win in the end, why not bet the banker’s hand. Even after paying the commission, you still have odds in your favor. So bet with the bank. This is the best bet (this is also why they charge the 5% commission)

Play and Money Management Management

You know now the best bet, but not how much to bet. This is also important. In Internet Blackjack, it is crucial.

You must decide to have self-control. A majority of players often wager more than they can afford to lose. Don’t be one of them. Follow the three simple rules below:

  1. Before you start Internet Blackjack you MUST decide how much you are going to loose. Write it down, stick to it. That is your limit.
  2. Budget the money you have and allocate just so much to each round of play
  3. Each time you win, allocate a percentage to the opposite pocket. Leave it there. Don’t deviate and that money is out of play. A smart player will put ALL of a winning hand out of play.

For example you have decided $1,000 to wager and to lose. You will bet the game betting the table minimum (let’s say $50). Put your winnings as per rule 3, out of play, After the 20th round you’ll only have played the $1,000, However, the money out of play, your winnings make sure you spend them and don’t give them all back – have some fun!

This strategy works for Internet Blackjack , and is the strategy of the winner.

If you leave with only small winnings, you are a WINNER.

You must remember that. Forget it, spend you winnings, don’t follow your strategy, chances are you will lose.

Internet Blackjack can be profitable and fun, but you must be disciplined and place the bets with the best odds of success and then you can be a winner at internet blackjack.

Rules of our Free Blackjack Game

The object of Blackjack is for the total of your cards to be closer to 21 than the dealer’s cards, without exceeding 21. In Blackjack, aces count as either 1 or 11, face cards as 10, and number cards at their face value.

If you receive an ace and a ten-value card as your first two cards, you have Blackjack and win 1.5 times your bet (if your bet was $10, you receive $25). If the total value of your cards is closer to 21 than the dealer’s, you win your bet amount (if your bet was $10, you receive $20). If the total of your cards is more than 21, you “bust” and lose your bet. If you and the dealer have the same card total (17 and up) neither of you win and your bet is returned to you in a “push”. Blackjack beats a score of 21.

This Blackjack game follows the standard “Las Vegas Strip” rules, with the following exceptions:

  • After each round, used cards are returned to the deck and the deck is shuffled.
  • The player may not split a split hand.
  • Only one card is drawn to split aces.
  • The player may double after splitting.
  • The dealer will not check for Blackjack in any case.
  • If the player doubles and the dealer’s first card is of value 11 (ACE), and the dealer gets Blackjack, the player loses both his bets. If the dealer’s first card is of value 10, and the dealer gets Blackjack, the player gets the Double bet back.



If your first two cards have the same value, you may split them into two separate hands by placing a second bet equal to the original bet. You will then draw additional cards to each hand. You may draw as many cards as you like on each split hand, but if you split two aces, you receive only one additional card for each ace. If you receive an ace and a ten-value card in a split hand, it is considered 21 and not Blackjack.

If, after you are dealt your first two cards, you think that the third card will allow you to beat the dealer’s hand, you can double your bet. The bet amount becomes twice the original (with the difference taken out of your balance), and you are dealt one more card.

If the dealer shows an Ace in his initial hand, you are given a chance to insure your bet against him having a Blackjack. If you get Insurance, an amount equal to half your original bet is placed separately on the table. If the dealer does have Blackjack, you are paid 2 to 1 on your insurance. This way you do not lose your original bet (because you get the 2x half your original bet, plus the insurance amount back). If the dealer does not have Blackjack, you lose the insurance amount, even if you end up losing.


10 Card Charlie

It is theoretically possible for the player to draw 10 cards without going bust. In this case the player’s hand automatically wins, except when the dealer has Blackjack.



  • Winning Hand pays 1 to 1
  • Insurance pays 2 to 1
  • Blackjack pays 3 to 2
