Blackjack Strategy Guide

When playing blackjack online, you have to have a strategy up your sleeve in order to be successful. You should always think of it as a game of odds where you are constantly asking yourself what the chances of winning are on a particular hand.

First of all, make sure you are 100% aware of the rules prior to playing blackjack. If you are uncertain of something, read our article on Blackjack Rules prior to reading any further.

Here is a simple, yet very effective way to play black jack and should especially be used to coincide with the Casino Bonus Whoring guide.

Basically follow the chart below accordingly where you match up your cards on the left column, to what the dealer is showing. So for e.g. if you have a total of 12, and the dealer is showing a 6, you should stand.

It may seem complicated at first, but you'll get the hang of it. Also, you should never take insurance.
