We all know that gambling is all about getting lucky and playing the odds. If you are a beginner in the world of gambling, you wouldn’t even care about the game you play and the place where you bet your money. A beginner has only one gambling strategy online Blackjack, which say, “I won because I was lucky or I lost because it was a bad day for me”.
So, let’s look at 10 Blackjack mistakes to avoid!

To understand the things better, you will find that top 10 Blackjack mistakes are divided under 4 categories.

Firstly, Common Blackjack mistakes;

You should know the rules of the table like, is it a single deck or multiple deck, will dealer stand or hit on soft 17, and is it allowed to double any time or for a 10 or 11 only.

Always say no to insurance, Insurance seems to be a good deal, but trust me or trust Ma it is not. There is a good chance that the dealer doesn’t have a Blackjack as chances of getting a Blackjack are not very high. And even if he gets a Blackjack you still lose your hand. So it just makes it a PUSH.

Common Blackjack mistake that players make, is by getting influenced by other player’s moves, just avoid it. Other person’s bad move will be good for you so just ignore it and always focus on your game, if you are playing multi-player.

Always stick to basic known facts or strategies, playing simple and waiting for the right time is the best game play, if you are losing never ever double your next bet, people do it in a hope that they will surely win at least one game. But what if you don’t, your money will be drained in 15 minutes max.

Secondly, Split mistakes;

Never ever, Split a pair of 10, it is one of the most obvious and stupidest mistakes a player makes. It seems to be a good option to start with a 10 but only fooling cannot see that he is losing 20 by doing so, which is a fairly good total.

Never split a pair of 5, now why do you want to split it, I mean a pair of 5 means you have the opportunity to start with a 10, so just do it and don’t split it.

Always split 8’s, No matter what the dealer has, you have to split 8’s. That is the right game play, no explanation for that.

Thirdly, Hit mistakes;

Now if you have stiff like 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16. There is always confusion whether to hit or not.
Always a take a stand if you have a stiff and dealer have up card 6 or below. On the other hand, always take a hit if dealer has up-card 7 or more, because in that case now need to improve your total and get it at least above 17.

Lastly, Double mistakes;

Now always double if you have 11 and dealers up 2-10, player 10 and dealer 2-9, player 9 and dealer 2-8, it increases your chances of getting more money as by having 11,10 and 9 in the above cases you have an upper hand. So just try to win as much as you can.

Always double an ace-6 or ace-7 when the dealer have 2-6 or 2-7, now if you have an ace-6 or ace-7 then you start with the minimum total needed, you should always take chance in such case as getting an A, 2, 3 or 4 will increase your score while getting a 10 will keep the total same. It is always worth a double.

Now, since you know the Blackjack mistakes to be avoided, you can now play different types of Blackjack games and also win big on Blackjack. In the end it can just be said – Play wise!
