Casinos can become a hard time addiction if you are living off on winner’s end. Who would not want to get lucky in a gamble? People have become millionaires overnight with just one trip to a casino. Blackjack is one of the table and card games in casinos which promises a huge return on the bets. If done right, the luck will be always in your favour. Here we share some of the strategies which will help you to win in blackjack. You can easily apply these strategies if you know the basics of the game and understand how it works.

Always double down on hard 11

If you are doubling down on hard 11 against any dealer’s upcard, you will always win money. There is only one exception. If you are playing a multi-deck game where the rule says- the dealer must stand on soft 17, you are better off hitting against a dealer Ace rather doubling down.

Always split a pair of 8s and Aces

Split the pair of 8s and aces regardless of what the dealer’s upcard is. Most of the players make the mistake of not splitting up the pair of 8s when the dealer’s card is a 9, 10, or Ace. Players think that their chance of winning is lower than the dealer and splitting will only make it worse, while splitting can actually give you a better chance of winning than before. It gives you a bigger space to hit rather be at 16 with one hand. So basically, splitting will help you to save yourself from losing more money against a 9,10 or Ace. Always splitting your 8s and aces is your best strategy to cut your losses and stay on the table even at the harshest times.

Never split a pair of 5s Or 10s

A pair of 5s or a 10 are always better withdrawing one or more cards than splitting. Keep the 10 on the table and pray to hit an Ace, facecard, or another 10. Splitting a 10 is probably one of the worst strategies you can use in the game. Keeping the 10s together for 20 also has better chances of winning than splitting the 10s.

Always hit a hard 12 against a dealer’s 2 or 3 upcard

Players find themselves in a tough situation on 12 because of the fear of being busted. But, against a dealer’s 2 or 3 upcards, you are meant to lose money in the long run whether you stand or hit. The best strategy is to challenge your luck in this scenario and not chicken out from hitting, even if you get busted.

Always double down on 10 when the dealer’s upcard is 9 or less

It is a pretty simple rule which works on its own. When you have a 10 against dealer’s 9 or less, you should double down. It is the best strategy to get easy wins.
