Judgement required at online casino blackjack

Two of the most popular online casino games are Roulette and Blackjack and whereas roulette is a casino game of pure luck blackjack has an element of skill or at least judgement that can improve your chances of winning. All online casinos carry at least one form of blackjack and some try to tempt you into other variations but the end of the day there is always a slight advantage to the dealer. In regular casino blackjack that edge is simply that you as the player plays first and if you bust then you lose regardless of what the dealer has or what subsequently happens. For example if you are playing multi-hand blackjack at your online casino and you bust your first hand but stand on your second and the dealer subsequently busts you will win your second hand but the first has already lost. Clearly the chances of getting good cards when playing casino blackjack are as good for you as the dealer so to mitigate the dealers advantage you need to bust as little as possible while still drawing cards to give a better hand. This is the balance that needs to be struck or online casinos will always win. This is of course easier said than done and your only clue is the single card of the dealer that is showing as it is at all online casinos. You then need to work out the chances of you busting versus the chances of the dealer busting and act accordingly. Most hands when playing online casino blackjack are obvious so for example if you have anything over 16 you will probably stand even if the dealer is showing a ten and similarly you will daw to less than twelve but the ones in between are where the games are won and lost.
