Blackjack Card Counting
Players are known to get creative in their quest to beat the odds and win in the game of blackjack. Who wouldn’t take the extra mile in preparations if it will result in instant wins and a life-changing jackpot, right? Today, players rely on some tested and creative strategies to beat the odds and become successful when it comes to playing blackjack.
And one popular approach used by experienced players is card counting. Primarily used in the game of blackjack, card counting is a strategy to mathematically estimate if the next hand will favour the player or the casino dealer. Players who use the strategy are called card counters, and their main job is to count and keep a running tally of the low and high-value cards that are seen by players to reduce the house edge.
Through the process of card counting, players can minimise their losses if the count is unfavourable, or take advantage of the situation if they think that the count is in their favour. The movie ‘21’ that starred Kevin Spacey is one great example of card counting in action.
