How to use the online blackjack strategy calculator?
Firstly set the rules of your Blackjack game:
You can find whether Surrender’s are allowed or whether Dealer stands or hits on Soft 17 in the help section of whatever Blackjack game you’re on. If you can’t find the rules then assume Surrenders are NOT allowed and the Dealer will STAND on Soft 17 (this will almost always be the case).
Next set the card that the Dealer has, this will be the card at the top of the screen on the game you’re playing. Click the + under ‘Dealer’ and then choose the card they have.
Now input your hand. Similarly to above, click the + under ‘Card 1’ to choose your first card, and then the + under ‘Card 2’ to choose your second card. After you’ve selected all the cards, you will be given the action you should take next that is the best strategy (the one that will minimise the house edge in the long run).
What do the different moves mean?
Hit – If the move is listed as hit, then firstly make that decision on your Blackjack game. After you have your next card, input the card you’ve been dealt into the calculator.
Stand – Stand on your Blackjack game and you’re done with the hand.
Split – Select split on the Blackjack game you’re playing, then click Deal Again on our Strategy Calculator.
You can then start again with your two new hands you have after splitting.
Double – Select Double on your Blackjack game, you’ll then be dealt one card and one card only. You’re then done with the hand. Sometimes you’re given multiple options for your next move, this is because various rules can be different on different blackjack games. Always select the first move (in this example below this is double) if you’re allowed to, if not then choose the second option.
Bust – If you get over 21 the calculator will tell you that you’re bust and the hand is over.
Insurance – Whenever the dealer has an Ace (A) you may be offered insurance. Always say NO to this.
