The casino gambling game of blackjack is always a hot topic amongst online casino players as some players always seem to win and others always seem to lose but in truth of course nobody can always win at Blackjack or any other casino game. Having said that there are gambling strategies that can be employed which will improve your chances of winning at Blackjack and there are indeed many books which have been published on the subject so we do not intend and nor do we feel qualified to go into these strategies but it is important to know what the casino gambling game is really all about. The house edge at blackjack is extremely small which when you think that the dealer and the player have an equal chance of beating each other when cards are below 21 but the edge comes in the fact that when gambling on blackjack if you bust the dealer wins even though the dealer might bust as well. Contrary to many descriptions of the blackjack game which state that the objective is to get as close to 21 as possible without going bust, we believe that the object of this gambling game is to beat the dealer and it is therefore important to be able to assess what is likely to happen to the dealers cards. The point being here that you can win the blackjack hand with any total under 21 if the dealer goes bust and simple maths will help you determine that likelihood. Unfortunately at the outset of the blackjack deal only one of the dealer’s cards is visible but if that card is a 5 or a 6 you can calculate that there is a 38% chance that the resulting total of the two dealers cards will be 15 or 16 which is where we want the dealer to be. In blackjack gambling the dealer must draw to 16 at which time there is a 61% chance of them going bust and even on 15 the odds are in your favour at 54% but you must still be in the hand to gain any benefit.
