The Hollywood Blockbuster ’21’ has created a surge of interest in the casino game Blackjack. The game has already seen a rise of popularity and has been dubbed ‘the new poker.’ The glamour and glitz of the world we see in ’21’ has an obvious attraction and prompts us to question of it’s really possible to make money at Blackjack by ‘card counting’ or other methods.
Counting cards is a technique by which a player can change the odds in blackjack in their favour. The system is based on the fact that high cards worth 10 or aces are better for the player’s expectation than low cards. With more high cards in the deck the player will receive more blackjacks and because blackjack pays out at 3 to 2 odds the odds change in the player’s favour when the deck has more tens. Card counting relies on determining the ratio of high cards to low cards in the deck. This is done not by memorising which cards have appeared but by giving each card a value and keeping a running total.
In reality winning at blackjack doesn’t have to be as complex as card counting systems – and in fact they won’t work in online casinos as instead of real cards the casinos rely on random number generators. Beating blackjack is possible by playing ‘perfect strategy’ and by using the online casino’s sign up bonuses to beat the small edge they have. The problem with this system is quite simply the boredom! But human play can be a thing of the past thanks to advances in technology and casino robots like blackjack bots mean you can take profits from the game without having to play a single hand yourself!
Blackjack bots work by reading the casino cards from your PC screen, making decisions based on yours and the dealer cards and making the appropriate play. They never get tired or bored and are the perfect solution to winning profits at blackjack. They may not get you into the sexy world we see in the movie ’21’ but for most of us blackjack bots are a far easier and safer way to win at the game!
