Perfect Blackjack Strategy

 I’m not going to take any credit at all for this one - it all goes to wizardofodds.com

In any of my step by step tutorials for casino offers that I complete, you will often see me opt for wagering my deposit on low stakes blackjack (if the terms of the offer allow). Blackjack offers a 99.54% RTP, which equates to a 0.4597% house edge. This is the lowest house edge you will find on any casino or slot game, which over the long term means we lose the least amount of money when qualifying for offers. The main thing to point out here is you will only have the lowest house edge IF you use the perfect blackjack strategy. If you decide you want to go against the strategy, then the house edge will increase.

The best thing to do is take all emotion out of playing, stick 100% to the perfect playing strategy, let the table do the hard work of reducing the house edge.

The image I always use is the following from wizardofodds (see image below). This is the strategy for blackjack games played with 4-8 decks where the dealer always stands of a soft 17. There is an alternative where the dealer is allowed to hit on a soft 17, however in most cases this is the one to go with.

  • 4-Deck to 8-Deck Blackjack, Dealer Stands on Soft 17

    Perfect Blackjack Strategy

  • How To Use?

    First, pick which table you need to use. There are three options:

    Hard - This is the standard table. If we have two different cards and neither is an Ace, use this table.

    Soft - If we hold an Ace (which counts for a 1 OR 11), make sure to use the “soft” table

    Split - If we hold two of the same cards, make sure to use the “splits” table.

    Once you’ve picked the right table, look up your hand and the dealer’s hand on the table.

    Y-axis - shows the “Players hand”. Add up the two cards in your hand and look the number up here. e.g. if you have a 10 & 6, the row to use is 16.

    X-axis - shows the “Dealer’s card”. The dealer will only show one card face up to start with.

    Once we know our score and we know the dealers card, we can select the correct decision. Find the row corresponding to your hand, then find the column corresponding to the dealer’s card. The cell where these intersect will tell you the correct action to take.

    If you have another decision to make (e.g. if you hit and don’t bust or reach 21), just look up your new hand on the table and follow the directions again.

    One point the table below does not mention is if you are offered “insurance” (offered if the dealer first card is an Ace) - ALWAYS DECLINE.

    That´s really it, I don’t want to go into too much detail, if you want more info or want to dig into the maths of this table, head over to wizardofodds

I like to have a bet at the weekends. Yesbets is a great resource for helping me find all the latest offers from bookmakers. They’ve helped me grab plenty of free bets over the years. Jin
Yesbets really helps me get the most from my betting. Their guides on Cheltenham and Ascot ensure I never miss an offer from the bookies. I grabbed over £400 for Cheltenham and helped me come out a winner. James
It’s great to have a site that compiles all the best offers in one place. Not just the signup stuff from bookmakers, but promotions for accounts I already have. Yesbets is my first port of call before I have a bet. Chris
Yesbets takes the hard work out of finding free bets. Not only does it show the best free bets from the big boys you’d expect, but also the bets from the scores of smaller bookies that want a piece of the pie. Need all the free bets you can stomach? You’re in the right place at Yesbets. Tibbs
