Blackjack Tips For Beginners
2021-03-12
Blackjack is one of the most popular card games in modern online casinos. LotaPlay Casino offers different Blackjack variations from such famous providers as Ezugi and Evolution Gaming. Visit the Live casino section on our site to know more.

We are always repeating that beginners must strictly adhere to the basic Blackjack strategy and not deviate from it even for a step if they want to win. Let’s explore some basic Blackjack tips for beginners which you should know!


Tip #1 – To start with – you should learn the correct basic Blackjack strategy!

Tip #2 – Never play a game that pays 6:5 on Blackjack. Always stick to games that pay the full 3:2. An 8-deck game paying the full 3:2 on blackjack is far better than a single deck Blackjack game paying only 6:5.

Tip #3 – You should never use the Martingale Betting System that requires you to double the size of your bet when you lose. It is a very dangerous system that leads you to lose an incredible number of hands in a row. You may lose everything you previously made and a lot more.

Tip #4 – Don’t take insurance – it is a bad bet! Only 4 out of 13 possible cards will give the dealer a Blackjack under the ace. That’s a 30.8% chance of Blackjack. If you are only getting paid 2:1 on an insurance bet, that’s a losing bet. If you’re an advanced player using a card counting system, then insurance is a great option in certain situations.

Tip #5 – Never stand on your “Soft 17”. This soft hand can only push against a dealer’s 17 if you stand. This is always either a hit or a double.

Tip #6 – Remember that the dealer doesn't control whether you win or lose – that is up to you and Lady Fortune. The dealers just doing their job and they want you to win so you would return and play again.

Tip #7 – A dealer showing a 5 or 6 is more likely to make a hand than a bust. You shouldn't double your 7 or less just because the dealer's showing a 5 or 6. You may get a small card and want to have another try. Remember, the dealer will make a hand in this situation more times than not.

Tip #8 – Stay calm and don't make bets or playing decisions based only on your emotions. Think ahead about what you will be betting and how you will play your hands.

Tip #9 – Carefully use the surrendering option. Only surrender a 16 versus a dealer's 9, 10, or Ace, and a 15 versus a dealer's 10 if you’re playing a multi-deck game and not counting cards. If you are card counting, you are familiar with all the correct surrender plays to maximize the potential of this fantastic option.

Tip #10 – Never go all-in. Always leave yourself enough money to double or split your hand. The bad scenario in Blackjack is that you are getting dealt two aces, and don’t have enough money to split, then hitting for two face cards and busting.

Tip #11 – Make the proper play regardless of the size of your bet. Play the hand, not the money.

Tip #12 – Never double 4,4. This is only a hit unless you’re facing a 5 or 6, then it’s a split. In fact, for some strange reason players that would never double a 3,5 or 2,6 suddenly want to double a 4,4. Don’t be one of them. The only exception is on a single deck game where you cannot double after splitting. Only then you can double 4,4 versus a dealer’s 5 or 6.

Tip #13 – Try to find the best table rules you possibly can. The perfect option is if the dealer stands on “Soft 17”. If you’re playing a 6-deck or 8-deck game, play where you can surrender. Those are just some basic tips, if you are at the beginning of your Blackjack journey, there are so many more useful things you should learn! Online casino with live dealers is a mixture of the real casino with online version. LotaPlay Casino invites you to try the best live online Blackjack and win big!
