Video Blackjack strategyOne of our readers wanted to know how many decks do the blackjack video machines use and what is video blackjack strategy should be? The general answer for most video blackjack machines is that they only use one deck. Table games can use several decks of cards. Sometimes as many as 7 or 8 decks shuffled together. Using only one deck in video blackjack sounds great compared to table games. Particularly if you are a card counter and keep track of the number of aces or high cards remaining in the un dealt cards.

But there is a catch and that is that the cards are reshuffled after every hand. Card counting cannot really be applied in the video blackjack games. Instead you need to be totally focused on the video blackjack strategy outlined in the chart on the left. Which lays out what you should do in every situation. It is based on the cards you have been dealt and the dealers up card.

While this is a great strategy few people can remember all of the possible combinations and the action you should take in every situation. We suggest that you study the chart closely and form general rules for what to do in various situations.

For example, if the dealer is showing a 7 or higher, you need to hit if your cards total less than 17. If you have 17 then stay with the cards you have. If the dealer has a 6 or less showing there is a good chance her or she will go bust. You therefore should stay in most situations unless your holding an ace. You have a chance of getting a high count such as 20 or 21 which is blackjack.

Take a few minutes to study the chart and then practice with a deck of cards or an online video blackjack game.
