    The first thing to consider when playing online blackjack, as with standard blackjack is: “How many decks of cards are being used by the dealer?” This number can vary widely from 1 up to 15 depending on your casino. Single deck games are harder to find, but are obviously much easier to track by "charting" cards as they are dealt.

    As a result, online blackjack is far more advantageous to the player because there is no dealer who can monitor you taking notes and counting cards. While playing at an online casino with a charting strategy, blackjack systems may be implemented.

    Here is a sample chart for playing online blackjack with:



    Card Suit Ace 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 J Q K
    Diamond X X
    Club X
    Heart X
    Spade X



    Card designations of “10”, such as, 10’s, Jacks, Queen and King account for 16 of 52 cards. Roughly half way through the deck, players may predict the dealers down card and wager accordingly. This is an opportune time to wager heavily such as double downs or taking one hit in exchange for doubling your wager. For instance, if your hand is 12 and it is unlikely that the next card will be a 10 designation, then double down.

    Play conservatively during the last few hands so that you don’t take yourself out of the game before the end of the deck. At this time, the cards being dealt should be clear based on the checked off cards from your chart. Wager heavily when you know you have a great chance to win and conservatively when the house has the advantage.

    The single deck charting strategy may be used when playing multiple deck games, but to a larger degree. The chart above may be expanded for however many decks the dealer uses and the cards are charted as they are dealt. Most online blackjack players use the same strategy or system they use while playing at a land casino. This is the overwhelming reason why online casinos win. Do not rush while playing online. Play methodically and chart the cards as they are dealt. With multiple deck blackjack, the rewards can be enormous, but the more decks are used the more bankroll you will need in order to notice patterns.

  • But what if they shuffle after every hand when you are playing online. I do not play online but it is my understanding that the online casinos do shuffle after every hand, making the observation or counting on previous hands useless.

  • ihate17 asked before I did, but the point is there. Online casinos are not so stupid as to let you count cards and beat them, if they did they would already be long-since bankrupt. They shuffle after every round, so there is no hope of gaining an edge by counting. You can do OK with serious bonus-hustling, if you avoid getting caught.

    Fifteen decks?! The most I’ve ever seen in a casino was 8. I’ve played at online casinos that had “multi-action” games where they used 6 decks, but I thought most online casinos and electronic blackjack machines used single decks. Where did you see a 15-deck game?

    goopxx said:Roughly half way through the deck, players may predict the dealers down card and wager accordingly.

    I would be wary of any card counting scheme that advises you to predict the hole card based on the count. It isn’t nearly accurate enough to predict specific cards.

    goopxx said:For instance, if your hand is 12 and it is unlikely that the next card will be a 10 designation, then double down.

    But what if you double down and get an ace? Then you’re still holding a losing hand. I don’t know of any system that would tell you to double down on a hard 12, even if you knew the dealer’s hole card and the count was in the arctic region. At what point in your “charting” would you advise someone to double down on a hard 12? Specifically, what cards would have to be left in order to make that the proper move? And how often do those subsets occur? What is the overall gain in EV by using that play? I didn’t find many answers on your website. It looked like it was mostly just casino advertisements without much strategy info.
