Playing blackjack online is appealing to many gambling enthusiasts due to the short time commitment and ease of play. Picking up a few hands here and there can be a great way to pass the time and possibly win a few dollars. Being able to play at home or at work is more comfortable than going to a casino and can save a great deal of money.

Players looking to even the odds up somewhat inevitably look for strategies that can help them win more and lose less. Though the house will always have some advantage, in blackjack, it is not much of one. Knowing the probabilities of what is most likely to happen to any given hand can be a valuable tool in a gambler's arsenal.

Hit Me Baby One More Time

Conventional wisdom says to always double down on 11, and to always split Aces and eights. If surrender is an option, consider doing so when the dealer is showing a nine or 10. Getting back half of your bet over time can add up to a fair amount of extra hands, which means more chances to win.

When playing blackjack online, you can always keep a window open that has a chart advising whether to hit or stand on every conceivable hand. Follow this chart to the letter and over time it will payoff. Varying one's bet allows you to play more hands, and clean up very well on the occasional lucky hand.
