Blackjack Strategy

All blackjack players know that in order to win at blackjack using a little basic strategy always helps. Is there a perfect strategy or methodology that guarantees a win? No, not really, unless you are a mathematician or statistician but using the strategies below will definitely help you get ahead.   Below I have outlined some of the best strategies used to help you win at online blackjack.

General Blackjack Strategy

Always keep the strategies below in mind when playing online blackjack.

Players with a card total of 2-8 should hit.

Players with a card total of 12-16 should hit when the dealer shows a 7 or higher.

Players with a card total of 17, 18, 19 or 20 should always stand.

Players with a card total of 21 will automatically win the hand.

Double Down Strategy

Doubling down is a strategy used when the player receives their first two cards.  At this point, if the player feels they have a strong hand then they have the option of placing an additional bet equal to or less than the first bet.

Players with a card total of 9 should double down if the dealer has a 2-6.

Players with a card total of 10 should double down if the dealer shows a 2-9.

Players with a card total of 11 you should always double down unless the dealer has an ace showing.

Splitting Strategy

This strategy is used when players are dealt two cards of identical value.  What happens is that the player has the choice of “splitting” the cards and creating two hands.  Once the cards are split then the player will need to place a second bet for the new hand.

Always split Aces and 8's

Never split 5's, 10's, or Face Cards
