Blackjack is the most popular card game in the world, and that’s why it comes in many shapes and sizes. However, the following five variations are widely regarded as the most popular, and you’re likely to find them for free in online casinos. Let’s check them out.
1. Assing a value to every card: once the dealer starts giving you cards, you’ll have to assign a +1, 0, or -1 value to each of them. Cards 2 – 6 are +1, 7 – 9 are 0, and 10 – Ace are - 1.
2. Keep the count: you have to add, subtract or stay on the same number whenever you get the card and keep the count going. For example, if you get a six, you need to add +1 to your count.
3. Learn your true count: in order to avoid losing to players, casinos introduced several decks. However, players found a way around that by introducing the so-called true count, which is calculated like this: running count/decks remaining.
4.Adjust your bets depending on the true count: that’s the whole point of card counting: to know how much you should risk. If the true count is higher, you need to increase your bets and vice versa.
