Why do I always lose at Online Blackjack?

Why do I always lose at Online Blackjack?

If you want to improve your chances of winning at Blackjack Online, you have come to the right place. We look at the best Blackjack strategies, discuss why the house has the advantage, and ways to maximise your winning potential.

Blackjack, along with roulette and slots games, is a popular Online Casino game. The RTP, the theoretical return to player over an extended playing period, is high and particularly so when compared to roulette and slots game. Broadly speaking, the RTP on roulette is around 97.3%, whilst online slot games offer a much greater profit to the online casino sites with RTP amounts ranging from 92% to 98% dependent on the game and stake level, although most newer games hover around the 96% mark. In contrast, Blackjack offers a massive RTP of 99.45%, although we always recommend checking the RTP on the specific casino site before playing online Blackjack.

This high RTP is one of the reasons that online casino sites do not promote Blackjack as heavily as roulette and slots games. There are still steps to take to tip the odds even further in your favour.

Is Online Blackjack Beatable?

Casino sites, the ‘house’, will always have the edge. If they did not, they would not exist. Bookmakers build their percentage profit into every game and every possible outcome of a game so that, theoretically and over time, they never lose. However, there will always be people who win more than they lose and that is due to a combination of luck, strategy, game selection, bankroll management, and knowing when to stop.

How to play Blackjack Online

There are many online Blackjack strategies that have been tried and tested. Players of different skill and experience levels will favour different techniques. These include card counting and calculating the chances of a certain card being drawn. Basic Blackjack strategy follows a natural order of playing options starting with surrender, which means to throw in the cards and draw new ones, deciding whether to split, which is only possible with a matching pair or two ‘ten’ cards, and considering doubling down, which means increasing the bet if the chance of winning is high. The final option is to ‘hit’, which means to take another card, or ‘stand’, which means to play the hand you have. To play Blackjack online with the best chance of success it is important to familiarise yourself with the rules of the game.
Whilst there are different versions of Blackjack the main two variables are the number of decks being used and whether the dealer hits or stands on soft 17. A ‘soft’ hand is one containing an Ace which can be a ‘1’ or ’11’ and gives many more combinations.

Winning at Blackjack takes practice, time, and patience. Finding a strategy that you are comfortable with, at a staking level that allows a decent playing session, will give you the best chance of beating the house.
