Deal or no deal!

As you would probably expect, one of the most popular games that is played at any casino is blackjack and the blackjack tables at Delaware Park are no different in that they are always very busy.

Blackjack is such a popular game for many reasons with the main one probably being that it is an easy game to learn, but there is a degree of skill involved in knowing when to stand or hit and combining this with the correct level of stakes to make the most of winning and losing runs.

We have spoken before about the benefits of learning the correct blackjack strategy but if you haven’t already looked into it, just carry out a Google search and you will be presented with a simple table which tell you in an easy to read manner exactly what you should do when dealt with any given hand.

The thing to remember when using a blackjack strategy such as this is to use stakes that you are comfortable with. If following the strategy correctly the house will still have an edge of a small percentage, but you will be able to take advantage of these fluctuations in order to make a profit.

From sports betting to poker, Delaware Park Betting features endless casino, golf, horse racing and sports gambling options.

To take advantage of any strategy such as this though, you need to be prepared to play over a period of time. For example, you could quite easily sit down at the blackjack table expecting it to win a few or lose a few hands, only to lose 10 on the trot. If you are playing with stakes that you are not comfortable with the chances are that you will not be able to continue and it will turn out to be a losing session.

On the other hand, using smaller stakes will mean that you will continue playing and the variance will turn itself around and what would have been a bad session will turn out to be a fantastic one.

Remember, blackjack is a game that anyone can play and what’s more, play very well, it is just a matter of getting the basics right.

Blackjack is not only an easy game to learn but also has the potential to be a very profitable one so why not try and make some money at the Delaware Park casino tables.
