Like any game, blackjack has various myths and legends. There is no basis for such beliefs, despite being popular and circulating on the Internet. In today’s post, we are going to explain the four myths to banish blackjack.
The objective is to get 21 points
Is it not like this? Shouldn’t you always get 21 points? No. The ideal of the game is to get blackjack, but the odds of getting it in each round are slim. In fact, most games you will win will be under 21.
So your real objective is to win the game, and for this, you need to know how to play blackjack. It is necessary to obtain a number greater than or equal to that of the dealer. With an example, it will be clearer. If the dealer gets 18 points and the player 19 … Congratulations! You have won the hand, and you have not needed 21 points.
Getting 19, 20 or 21 points is not synonymous with victory
The second myth that we are going to bury is to believe that to win the game, you must have a high number. Actually, this statement is wrong. However, the higher the value of your cards, the more chances of winning.
Having 19, 20, or 21 points does not guarantee you win the game. Remember that to win the game, and you need to have a higher hand than the dealer’s (without going over 21 points). So if you get a magnificent 20 point hand, but the dealer gets blackjack… you still lose.
So now you know, you can win a game with only 15 points, if the dealer exceeds 21. He would lose the game, and you as a player would win.
The dealer always wins
The odds of winning blackjack depend on the strategy to follow and knowing how and when to bet. Furthermore, the dealer is required to always ask for a card if his hand is less than 17. A new card can win or lose the game. The same thing that happens to the player.
If a player wins blackjack several times in a row, we think “how lucky” “fortune is with him” “you have to keep playing. I’m on a streak”. However, if the dealer is the dealer for several rounds, we don’t like it that much.
Statistically, it is highly unlikely that the dealer can win multiple Blackjacks in a row, but it can happen. Each time a game starts, players have the same opportunities to win or earn BJ as in previous rounds. Just like the dealer. We must not forget that the casino always starts with an advantage. However, it does not always win.
Double the bet on a good or bad streak
The strategy to follow in blackjack or any other game of chance is the same. Determine what the amount you are going to play is. Always set yourself a budget and stick to it.
Some users believe that if you are on a positive streak, it is beneficial to double the bet. Not so, it is just one more myth to banish. Nobody guarantees that by winning seven games in a row, you decide to double the bet, and you will also win the eighth round. What’s more, you have a statistically high chance of losing. We must not tempt luck. If you have won several rounds, turn off your computer or mobile and enjoy the victory
It is even worse to think that your luck will increase if you double the bet when you have lost a number of games. The only thing that will happen is that you will lose more money.
