10 Blackjack Tips Every Newbie Needs to Know
Blackjack is a game played in casinos around the world. It’s well-known and for good reasons. If you’re looking to start playing blackjack, here are 10 tips for you that will help you out when you start playing.
Start with small amounts.
If you have heard of the song “Can’t Help Falling in Love’, the phrase “wise men say, only fools rush in” is definitely a phrase that you can take to heart when it comes to gambling. It is guaranteed to be a recipe for disaster if you start putting down $100 notes from the first time you play at a blackjack table. Impulsiveness is one of the worst things one can do when it comes to gambling. Take it slow, relax. Watch how others play and how the dealer is playing. Go buy a drink. Take all the time you need to get a feel of the game. Start off by betting the minimum amount.
Different tables have different payouts. It may take some experience before you will be able to identify the best tables to sit at. Keep an eye out for tables that payout on 18. If a seat is available at such a table, go for it. These tables are the ones that will give you the best probability of gaining money. The minimum bet amount is also another factor to look out for.
Handle your bankroll.
Make sure to plan your budget before heading to the casino and stick to it. When you don’t manage your bankroll properly, it is highly likely your trip to the casino will end up badly. Make sure not to chase your losses and don’t lose track of your wins.
Steer clear from insurance.
Insurance is a lie. Don’t even bother considering it. When a player makes an insurance bet, the house will have a 6% advantage over the player. Even if you happen to hit a blackjack, you only win back your initial bet.
Never abandon the fundamental strategies.
You may have come across tons of articles online about ways to refine your gameplay at blackjack in order to win more. It’s a waste of time. Stick to the fundamentals and it won’t go wrong. Just make sure to make the right decisions of when to stand, split, hit, and double on hands. Making the right decisions is everything.
Don’t sit at the first base seat if possible.
The reason for this is simple. When you are at the first base seat, the dealer will hand out your cards the quickest and you will have the least time to make decisions. This will put pressure on you and affect your gameplay.
Ignore the chitchat.
If you come across talkative players or some who even think of themselves as experts in the game trying to give advice, ignore them. Tune out whatever they say and stay focused on your game. Remember, blackjack is between you and the dealer.
Play free games online.
Online gambling has grown a lot over the past decade. A lot of online casinos offer players free games to try out. Make sure to make full use of this to hone your skills before playing with real money.
It is easy to feel overconfident when you are on a winning streak. Make sure not to let your winnings get to your head. On the contrary, if you happen to be losing, make sure not to be too discouraged.
Never forget that gambling is all about having fun. There’s no point in gambling if you take the fun aspect out of it. If it is starting to feel tedious or boring to you, take a break before continuing.
