To start off, it’s important to know that blackjack boasts some of the best odds of any game in the industry, meaning that the player has a better chance of winning against the house.
For example, the odds of winning a round of roulette sits at around 35/1, where blackjack players have a significantly better 3/1 chance of winning, and even sometimes 2/1.
Arguably the most popular form of blackjack at the moment is Atlantic City blackjack, which makes use of either 6 or 8 eight decks of cards during a game. The rules here mean that the player is able to surrender later if the dealer tries to see if the player has a blackjack, which reduces the house edge for the game, significantly less than other forms of the game. At the same time, it’s worth keeping in mind that the house does try and offset some of this risk by having the player make the first move, which is to be expected, as the risk is always with the player.
This is just how the game is played at most venues, including the online sphere, so it’s a good rule of thumb for most players to keep in mind that while they are the ones that have to bear most of the risk, we’ve made it our mission to try and help you cut that risk as far back as possible, while still allowing you to have a fun and memorable experience.
