Blackjack is a very interesting game, you can easily win this game.
but you will also lose easily. because blackjack only requires luck and a good card. if you are the type of person who likes to play simple games, this game is suitable for you, it's just the highest payout x2.5 if you find a card totaling 21.
I hope there is no cheating in this game. because blackjack is my favorite game on stake.com

good luck all

 . Hello.

Thank you for defining the game I like.

But this part of your saying is wrong.
You can separate the matched cards and double the bet on each one. It gets 3x to 4x

Hope I'm right!:D

I also apply the raise 2x or 3x technique if I lose

That would be called the martingale strategy where you double your bet amount on loss, it can be very dangerous when consecutive losses happens and that would eventually drain your whole bankroll!

etude is right , betting double on consecutive loses is a sure way to lose all your bankroll very quickly , Blackjack is a simple game and one i enjoy if i have enough bankroll to play ,

small bets are not really that great seen as the ,multiplier is not very high , so for me to see a result i would be placing larger bet amounts effectively doubling your bankroll on a win

not a loss!

There's 100% no cheating lol as the casino is provably fair, you can check every bet to see the outcome! :)

Simple, but easily to bust you. 

That time, I bet almost half of my balance. I got 10 and 2 cards. Then I try double. Get Jack. With means im busted for that.

And doing some all in, got busted with Ace Jack dealer.

Payout 2.5x only applying to blackjack A+10/J/Q/K. If the card is more than 2 and totalling 21, the payout is still 2x.

So true. easy game but can benefit or harm you in an instant. But this game is very interesting for me. When I lose I increase the bet to 3x than before :S

Hi! I like to play a little blackjack from time to time, after the trick is that you don't have to go if you don't know anything about it even if you read the dictatorship it's still a game you have to know and master a little bit if you want to win often and you still need luck too!XD!
no I don't think it's fixed, besides I think that no stake games are fixed there's just one thing for sure: you have to master more than others that are based on luck!!
it's up to each of us to see what we like best!
Good luck to all!!!
bye

Well, blackjack is a really nice game to double your deposit.I usually pre-roll til the dealer hits 21 and then betting my whole balance so I'm getting x2 on an 70% chance, this kind of betting has made me some profits so far, thanks for sharing your opinion anyways!

i guess you can put it that way...  its a simple game for sure, but sometimes the mistakes that people make baffles me...

like not hitting on a soft 14  or somthing when the dealer has a 7 card showing.

just makes no sense to me why succh a simple game can be understood to play in so many weird ways.

bnut yea h luck is all you need! =P

Well, I agree with you but I think that playing Blackjack vs a computer is just a waste of time and money. If Blackjack here was a game which you could be able to play vs other users it would be way more interesting. For me, Blackjack isn't profitable at all while you can get a massive loss streak even if you have a good strategy.

Throughout several rounds, the chances of winning each hand will also be skewed by the cards that have been removed from the deck. The player’s net loss or gain (the amount in money, rather than a tally of hands won or lost) over a session will be affected by how much he wagers, and at which times he elects to increase or decrease the wagered amount. Finally, house rules can be imposed to change the parameters of the game and restrict the player’s options.

With all of these factors in effect, it’s not possible to affix a specific number to all situations or all styles of play—but three figures are often cited:

Most casinos expect each blackjack table to have a hold of about 20%—that is, they expect to be able to keep about 20% of the wagers made. Correspondingly, the average player can expect to lose about 20% of his stake over the course of every session.

The “core odds” reduce the house’s advantage to 10.99%. Based on the assumption the player will elect to hit or stand by the same criteria as the house, the house will win roughly 10.99% more hands than the player.

The net odds—which consider the amount of money won or lost rather than the core number of hands, generally work out to an 8.89% advantage to the house (given a two-deck game played by the most common set of rules).

An interesting, if somewhat premature, note on these figures is that the house expects to earn more than double (20% as compared to 8.89%) what the odds would seem to indicate it will and that these expectations generally hold. This demonstrates how the player’s decisions can affect the outcome of the game—and that the average player will lose more than double the mathematically probably amount because of uninformed decisions.

The basic blackjack, intermediate, and advanced blackjack strategies described in the blackjack strategy section of this site can further impact the odds. By using blackjack basic strategy consistently, the player can decrease the house’s advantage to less than 1%. By adding the intermediate and advanced strategies, a player can make the game completely even (hence fair) and, in rare situations, also turn the odds in his favour by a fraction of a percentage.

What are Odds?

In its purest sense, odds are the chances a given outcome will occur given the possible alternatives. The most comfortable metaphor is a coin toss: if a coin is tossed in a genuinely random fashion (nothing influences the outcome), it is just as likely to come up heads as tails. If it is tossed ten times, you can expect it to come up heads five times, and tails five times.

Granted, it is possible, even with true randomness, that the toss will result in heads ten times in a row—which is why odds consider likely rather than specific outcomes. In the long run, the mathematical probability will bear itself out in practice—if a coin is tossed 1,000 times, it is likely to come up heads 500 times (though, in practice, it will be plus or minus a few). Thus, it’s not necessary to spend several years flipping a coin million of times to determine the likely outcomes or rig a supercomputer to simulate the same—though some stubbornly have.

Casino games are carefully designed to exploit the odds, always taking advantage for the house: a player will never be paid a wager that is strictly equal to the true odds. A good example of this practice is roulette, in which a wager on a single number pays 35 to 1 even though the odds of winning are 1 in 37.

What are the odds of winning blackjack

Blackjack, however, foils the computation of odds based on random events because there are a number of influences that prevent it from being completely random—most significantly the player’s choices during the course of the game. In such cases, the odds are set to turn a reasonable profit from the average player. (Actually, they’re set to turn a reasonable profit from the reasonable intelligent player, an exorbitant one from the average player, and flat-out milk a “sucker.”) This is why an attentive player who makes the right decisions can come out ahead.

The odds of the hand’s outcome are determined not only by the initial hand dealt and by the number of hits that are added. This can vary greatly, because a player can take as many or as few as he desires—a player may opt to hit every hand he is dealt until it exceeds 21 and lose 100% of the time.

We can, however, be reasonably certain of the dealer’s behavior, as he is forced to play by certain rules, regardless of his instincts, superstitions, or desires. Most often, the rules require the dealer to stop taking hits when his hand reaches a total of seventeen or greater, and no sooner. Before the cards are dealt, it’s possible to predict the chances that the dealer’s hand will have the following outcomes.

Blackjack win percentage

All the totals for hands remain equal—so a player’s 20 will beat a dealer’s 19 equally as often as a dealer’s 20 beats a player’s 19, and the dealer will bust as often as the player while the other stands on a viable hand. The only remaining difference is that the dealer will bust of the instances in which the player busts—which is 33.15% likely to happen in 33.15% of the time, for a core odds value of 10.99% of all hands played.

I understand perfect strategy BlackJack should get me very, very close to 100% RTP (don’t have the specific figures off the back of my hand) and while this sounds good on paper, I cannot begin to describe the horrors that plagued me when I had my first serious session on BlackJack.

You guessed it, it busted me. And it wasn’t like I was on a win streak > lose streak kind of session but a hell-raising lose-from-The-get-go kind of session. 

Shucks.

black jack is one of the oldest and easiest game to play. like i said before in any card game there strategies and skills are involved.. with black jack is not just a guessing game..memorizing and figuring the odds and probable outcome for each hand.. takes a lot of concentration.. is just player beats dealer or dealer beats player.. when hit when to stay,, and yes everyone vs dealer.. so having a play for the person next is very appreciative.. when i say that.. if you know the next card can help more to the other person. you will stay so they can get the card.. and possibly a good chance dealer will bust.. some people think every man for themselves no. its not.. counting cards does not break the rules but very frown upon,, the best way to actually play black is 1 on 1. the chances gets higher in your favor in beating the dealer..
