Best online blackjack odds

It's one thing to understand the basics of blackjack, but entirely another to master it. What does take to be a skilled player? Pivotal to the game are the odds and comprehending the house edge, without it, let's just say you are playing blind.

What is the House Edge?

A player is in it to win it, unfortunately, the casino is too and in due time they are the true winner. Why? Because the odds are in the favor of the house with a profit made on every bet placed.

Even though the odds are not stacked in your favor, each casino varies. However, the best game to play at the tables is blackjack that typically has the lowest house advantage.

Gain leverage against the house by:

  • Understand the rules of blackjack
  • Develop a strategy
  • Seek casinos & games with the lowest house edge
  • Know when to quit when ahead

The lower the house edge, the longer your bankroll will last and the potential to win goes up. Yet don't be fooled, play too long especially when winning and your chips will end up on the wrong side of the table.

You can watch our excellent simplified strategy here.

Remember

…in the end the house is the demon who has the upper hand and the player will consequently lose in time. When ahead don't walk, run away from the table because you just defeated the beast in the room.

You don't have to be a mathematical wizard (pun intended) to determine the advantage the house has over the player. We have sorted that out for you in our list of casinos below.
