21 blackjack

Is Blackjack a game of skill?

Here you are with me again. Once you are reading this article, I assume that you have already read the previous one talking about casino game as well which focused on Baccarat game.

In this article, I will cover another card game popular card game called ‘Blackjack’.

Blackjack or other regions call it ’the 21-game’ is undeniably popular all over the world. You will see it in any casino you step in I promise.

How do you play Blackjack?

Well, you may play with friends just a deck of cards while in casino, the regularity would be 4, 6 or 8 decks. The idea of having more decks is to prevent bettor beating the house easily.

Once you placed your bet, you will be dealt with 2 cards face up. The objective of blackjack is for the player to draw/hit the card as much as closest to 21 without going over.

The King, Queen, Jack and 10 will be counted as 10. Ace will be counted as 1 or 11 depending on situation. While the rest of the cards are represented by its own value.

You will be paid 1 to 1 if you win that particular hand; however, you will be paid 3 to 2 if you win on Blackjack. Blackjack hand is when you hit exactly 21 on the first 2 dealt cards. That would be a King, Queen or Jack with an Ace.

Is Blackjack a game of skill?

It can’t be considered as a game of chance while there is a combination of skill and luck coming at the same time for the game. The more skillful you are, the better you play and win the game. Well, you need patient though. It is similar concept to Poker game whereby you really need skill and luck in order to win. Unlike the rest of the games which purely happened by chance.

Ideally, the game is still under risk management for the casino to operate as I mentioned earlier, it won’t be played by a deck of cards. And you will be joint by other players who can cause you trouble by the decision whether to hit or stand as the game is playing against the house.

Most of gambling operators will have a margin of 1.1% to 1.2% for Blackjack. For some occasion, there is a loss of 2%. This means you will have to be skillful and bring the luck along. And wait…

Don’t be afraid, just yet! If you practiced well and learnt its logic, you will still win. In my case, I’ve never lost in overall.

As I have just told you earlier, you will need skill and patient. You will have to play it intelligently, stay on your target and win it.
In addition, there are very strict rules for the dealer whether to hit the card or not; aside from players’ cards which they control by themselves. You might read the game rules of the website that you are going to play.
