Blackjack is a casino game at which you can win if you play correctly and act correctly. Jackpot slots, in contrast, are games that require no special skill or strategy. In both online casinos such as Jackpot Capital casino and land based casinos, slots are the most popular games. We have a large library of excellent slots from Real Time Gaming and land based casinos have large banks of slots!
Still, blackjack has a return to player rate of close to 100%! The key is correct play and correct behavior. So, let’s talk about those aspects of blackjack! When you change your behavior and strategy, you will get so close to even with the house, that you will need just a little luck to turn a profit from playing blackjack!
We have all seen YouTube clips about Phil Helmuth’s behavior in poker. He makes excuses when he loses a difficult hand to the point of blaming an amateur for making a “stupid” play that in the end won the hand and cost Helmuth some substantial coin!
This is the kind of behavior that we feel holds back blackjack players and causes them to lose more than the 0.5% that we would expect from pure statistics. There are a few different types of excuses. One at least is unique to land based casinos while others are equally damaging whether the player is at Jackpot Capital casino or a land based casino.
There is a huge difference between a betting scheme and a betting strategy. If you can find a single deck blackjack game at a land based casino and you count cards, then you will increase your bet when the card count shows that you are likely to win the next hand. That is an example of a betting strategy.
This is the most famous betting scheme. Gamers use it in many games. The idea is to double your bet after a loss. The system can work to give you minuscule wins but the risk is enormous.
Let’s say that you are playing blackjack for $5 a hand. If you lose, you bet $10. Then, if you win, you will have a $5 profit for the two hands. The problem arises when you lose a few hands in a row. This often happens in blackjack! The dealer has winning streaks and the players have winning streaks. A dealer’s winning streak is always a player’s losing streak!
If you lose five hands in a row, you will have made the following bets:

In order to continue to follow the system, you now need to make a $160 bet! Now, add up all your bets including the latest one. You will see that your losing bets totaled $155 and you are now betting to win $160. So, if you do win the sixth hand, you will end up with a $5 profit. Very few gamblers would thing that betting $160 in order to win $5 is a good bet!
This is very common at land based casinos and is one of the best reasons to play blackjack at Jackpot Capital online casino! If a blackjack player plays according to correct strategy, he or she will hit often with 12 or 13 points. Sometimes this correct strategy move leads the other players to bust or just lose to the dealer so the strategic player gets “blamed” for everyone else’s bad luck.
A poker professional might “like” to play a poor hand before the flop. They feel that for some reason they get good results playing such a poor hand. Keep in mind that these are poker pros. They know how to mislead opponents. Poker players do benefit from noticing patterns in their opponents’ behavior and betting. They can also benefit by noticing patterns in their own play.
As a blackjack player, the only player you can mislead is yourself!
So the suits of the cards you have are irrelevant. The color the dealer is wearing is irrelevant. In fact, the only things that are relevant at the blackjack table is your card count and the dealer’s up card!
By avoiding betting schemes, superstitions, and recriminatory blaming of others, we can free our minds to pay attention to the exact hand at hand and to make the statistically correct play!
Splitting cards correctly, doubling down correctly, and surrendering correctly are three areas where incorrect paly costs gamers a lot of money and changes the expected return to player rate away from the 99.5% rate to something much less. Doubling down and splitting double your bet. When they are used properly they double your win on that hand. By failing to split and double down when that is the statistically best move, many players cost themselves money!
This is one of those other side of the coin issues. If you are having fun, you aren’t afraid to make a move. If you are afraid to make a move, you are not having fun! Doubling down is usually an easy move to make; it engenders little fear, if any. Splitting makes many players nervous.
Surrendering is, for many blackjack players, the worst move they can make. So, if you fall into this category, you need to learn how to be happy that you can surrender and give up half your bet! Remember, by giving up half your bet, you are saving the other half!
This is one area of casino gaming that we reiterate often. The biggest advantage you can have by playing at Jackpot Capital online casino is that we are available to you every day on a 24/7 basis. You should never feel the “need” to stay and continue playing as so many players do feel after they have spent a lot of money getting to a land based casino for a long weekend. This applies both to the length of your gaming sessions and the amount of money you dedicate to gaming.
Setting time and money limits will improve your blackjack results by keeping you mentally fresh and alert and by allowing you to play for a short time before returning to your many other interests and responsibilities.
