Online Blackjack versus Blackjack in the Physical Casino

You can find hundreds of sites on playing blackjack in the physical casino and very few dealing with playing online black jack . Playing black jack online has advantages (in my opinion) over playing in the physical casino.

blackjack online versus physical casino

In the physical casino, cards are drawn from a shoe (for games that use four or more packs of cards) which is just a box that is designed to hold the cards and allow the dealer to deal from it. In the online casino, a computer program generates the cards you get when you click the deal button. In a quality online casino using quality games such as Microgaming's software, the computer will be programmed to randomly select the cards that it deals from one to six packs of cards depending on the version of black jack that you are playing.

In the physical casino the order in which the cards fall is controlled by how the dealer was trained to shuffle the cards (you can end up with a group of cards all of the same value called clumps. This is why many experienced players will not play in a physical casino until all cards have been dealt from the shoe at least two or three times. They believe that during these times the house has the advantage.

In the online casino this is unlikely to happen because of the way the computer program randomly generates the cards.

In the physical casino up to four players sit opposite the dealer at a half round table. Never sit at number three unless you are a confident experienced and a good player. You will cop a lot of flack if you make too many wrong calls as you will be costing all the other players money.

When playing on line, you will not be accused of trying to count cards if you play slowly and consider your options before making your play. The worst that can happen is that your session will timeout and you will have to log back in.

You do not have to learn the hand signals that must be used by both the players and dealers if you wish to play in the physical casino

Online casinos give new players a sign in and or a deposit bonus which can be up to 100% of your initial deposit but for blackjack players this bonus is usually limited to about 20%. Whilst playing with your initial deposit and a casino bonus of only 20% you would have an advantage of almost 20% over the house. In these circumstances you are definitely better off playing online.

Card counting is more effective in the physical casino because in the online casino each round is dealt from the equivalent of a new shoe.

Following a sound basic or beginners playing strategy will allow you to win more money than you loose in both the physical and the online casino.

You will always loose more hands than you win in both the physical and online casinos. This is why it is essential that serious blackjack players learn at least a sound basic black jack strategy. Hold Your nerve and stick to it!

You can play Blackjack and be confident of being paid your winnings at all of our recommended casionos. For an initial real world assessment of your blackjack playing skills, we recommend Lasseters Online Casino, and Zodiac Casino because they offer the lowest bets blackjack onlineavailable (starting at 2cents). If you haven't learned your lessons well, you won't loose much during the course of the "assessment" and if after several hours of play you are satisfied that you have learned well, you can gradually increase your bets to a realistic level, preferably slowly over the course of quite a few sessions of at least two hours each. Consistantly successful blackjack play is a long hard slog.
