There is no absolutely sure fire way of winning at Blackjack but it can help if you understand and think about what you are trying to do. Several online blackjack sites will say that the object of the game is to get as close as possible to 21 without going over that number or busting but others who play Blackjack will disagree and say that the object of the game is to beat the dealer and it is this version that gives you a much broader choice of how to play Blackjack. All online casinos carry Blackjack as one of the top games and some of them have all kinds of variations but the straightforward game of blackjack is simple enough and gives the blackjack player an excellent chance of winning. Both the player and the dealer have in theory an equal chance of receiving good or bad cards and in the event of a tie then all bets are a push so the only real house advantage in blackjack is that the player plays first and if they bust they lose even though the dealer may also bust later in the hand and once you have this in your mind you can adjust play accordingly. Without going into the possibilities of splitting or doubling up there are in fact only certain card totals in blackjack where decisions need to be made as if you have 17 or over you will stand and if you have 11 or under you will draw leaving only 12,13,14,15 and 16 where a decision has to be made and you need to look at the blackjack odds. If you have 16 for example there are 8 of the 13 possible cards that will make you go over 21 which is over 60% which at 15 drops to approaching 54% so by evaluating your cards and the one card showing of the blackjack dealer you can assess your chances of the you going bust and the dealer going bust and the blackjack dealer going bust while you are still in play is a winning hand regardless of what it is.
