Tips for Winning at Blackjack More
How can you beat the casino when it has the edge? Mr Blackjack shares his bankroll management skills so you get the advantage over time.
- I get this question often. How do I win more at blackjack? Lesson 3. Tips for Winning at Blackjack More.
Well, just like Wall Street, blackjack is a zero-sum game. Unlike other casino games that offer progressive jackpots like slots, blackjack will pay you 1 to 1 in most cases. So the only way to increase your winning is by betting more and playing smarter. If you start with a $300 nightly bankroll, and you bet 5 to 10% of your stack on every bet, so 15 to $30, you can grow your nightly bankroll to $1,200. Using the same 5 to 10% rule, your bets will go from 60 to $120 per hand, allowing you to win more.
You can do this by utilizing the betting and money management skills taught in previous videos and by progressively building up your bankroll with effective money management and variable betting patterns. When your bankroll increases, so should your wagers. And when your wagers increase, they should vary based on the true count. Just because you can bet more does not mean it's the right time to bet more. Look for a favorable shoe, count cards, and the opportunity will present itself for you to make a smart decision. And invest more into a hand where the expected outcome is favorable.
