Millions of players have heard the message that of all the casino table games, blackjack is the one that it is possible to beat. A practical system for counting cards in blackjack to gain an edge over the casino was made available to the public in the early 1960s. As it happened, few players ever really learned to beat the dealer. Furthermore, playing conditions have changed since then. Some tables use more than one deck at a time or cut a percentage of the cards out of play so that a card counter never sees them.

Even though most players don't have the skill to win consistently, the belief that blackjack can be beaten was enough to spark a boom in the game. Blackjack is by far the most popular casino table game in the United States, with more players than craps, roulette, and baccarat combined.

A lot of people don't have either the patience, persistence, and concentration necessary for card counting or the bankroll to make it effective. But they can still narrow the house advantage to less than 1 percent in blackjack. The secret is to learn basic strategy for hitting, standing, doubling down, and splitting pairs. A little time spent learning to play well can make your money go a lot farther in the casino. In this article, you will learn the fundamentals of blackjack, as well as some strategies to increase your odds of winning. Let's get started by learning how to play the game:


Blackjack is played with one or more standard 52-card decks, with each denomination assigned a point value. The cards 2 through 10 are worth their face value. Kings, queens, and jacks are each worth 10, and aces may be used as either 1 or 11. The object for the player is to draw cards totaling closer to 21, without going over, than the dealer's cards.

The best total of all is a two-card 21, or a blackjack. Blackjack pays 3-2--that is, a two-card 21 on a $5 bet will win $7.50 instead of the usual $5 even-money payoff on other winning hands. However, if the dealer also has a two-card 21, the hand pushes, or ties, and you just get your original bet back. But if the dealer goes on to draw 21 in three or more cards, your blackjack is still a winner with its 3-2 payoff.

The game is usually played at an arc-shaped table with places for up to seven players on the outside and for the dealer on the inside. At one corner of the table is a rectangular placard that tells the minimum and maximum bets at that table, as well as giving variations in common rules. For example, the sign might say, "BLACKJACK. $5 to $2,000. Split any pair three times. Double on any two cards." That means the minimum bet at this table is $5 and the maximum is $2,000. Pairs may be split according to the rules described below, and if more matching cards are dealt, the pairs may be split up to three times for a total of four hands. The player may double the original bet (double down) and receive just one more card on any two-card total.
Decide ahead of time how much $ you are willing to lose and put that amount in your front right pocket and use it to play with. While you're playing, every time you build up a nice little pile of chips split it in half and put that in your front left pocket. Only play with the money from your right pocket. When your right pocket is empty, your done, quit playing! Don't use the left pocket chips except to cash out. You can be very successful doing this if your goal is to break even for the whole night or weekend and cover the expenses of dinner, travel, etc and have several hours of fun entertainment. If you play long enough with only one pocket of money, that pocket will eventually be empty.
The best tip you can get for any form of gambling is to go in knowing how much you'll willing to lose and be ready to quit when you hit that limit.

Now from a purely mathematically point of view, blackjack does give you the best chance to 'win' out of all games in the casino. However it still has a negative expected value overall for the players; so if you play a game of blackjack for very long, it is most likely that you lose more to the dealer than you make.

Card counting is a technique that improves your chance of wining at the game, although its only effective (and realistic to do) with a few decks (when the game is played with 1 or 2 decks). Any higher it gets harder to count the cards and the dealer will probably shuffle the deck before your count becomes useful.
There are various card counting methods but the basic idea is to keep a count which denotes how 'warm' the deck is. Since its better for you when the deck is filled with high value cards and worse when its filled with low value cards. So you start at 0 and +1 when a low card is dealt and -1 when a high card is dealt.
That's just the very basic idea behind it though, the actual algorithms ppl use are more complex and requires more time/people to work with.

One thing before you play is to remember the dealer's rules, most casinos have rules on when dealers have to hit and stay. Remember those and get some basic idea of how 'warm' the deck is and it should improve your chances.

Good luck on the game. (And it really is just luck)
