with five tips in this part and another five tips in part to hi and welcome to park one of our two-part
series on the top 10 tips for beginning blackjack players in this first part we’re going to talk
all about what kinda blackjack games you should avoid and then we’ll talk about some other
table etiquette involved later on in part two we’ll talk some
more about table etiquette and then finish up with some advice and
how to use the proper strategies so if you’re already learned about
blackjack let’s begin number one don’t play 625 blackjack
games traditionally blackjack games are paid
322 whenever a player is dealt the Blackjack
however in recent years some casinos have reduced that payoff from three to
two to only six to five which results in a
lower win for the players as an example if you bet ten dollars and
get a blackjack 322 payoff would be fifteen dollars
while the 625 payoff would be only twelve dollars this result in a much higher
mathematical edge for the casino and you should avoid these games as a
matter of fact by just making this one change in the
payoff for Black Jacks the casinos can raise their advantage by
over 300 percent so once again make sure you avoid the
625 blackjack games number two don’t play at tables that use
a continuous shuffling machine traditionally once all the cards have
been played either that the other or an automatic
shuffling machine will shuffle the cards before they are put back into play with a continuous shuffling machine
however there is no break in play because the
discarded placed directly into the continuous shuffling machine which will keep shopping cart after
every and display end result is that more hands will be
played per our and on average you will lose more
money simply because you’re playing more hands
and one more thing if you want to count cards then for sure
you want to avoid these games because card counting won’t work against the continuous
shelling machine number three check the table minimum before you sit
down if you’re a ten dollar blackjack player
you don’t want to mistakenly sit at a twenty five dollar minimum bet table so be sure to check the table minimum
before you sit down there will always be a placard or sign
at each table that shows the minimum bet for that table so be sure to look for tbe for you sit
down number four don’t answer in the middle of a shoe
game if it’s not allowed some blackjack tables have a sign that
says no Michu entry and that means once the first Carter
doubt you can’t make a bet and to all the cards in the shoe have been dealt
out and I knew she was put into play if you
ask the casino why they have this role probably say it for the convenience of
their players so they aren’t bothered by new players and a ranked game until the
shoot was finished but the real reason is to stop card
counters what are the methods card counters can
use is to stand at the table without betting and watch the Carters they’re being
played once the county’s favorable they can then jump in with a
big bat however within no Michu entry roll the
card counters are prevented from doing this so before you jump into a game that’s
already in progress be sure to check if it’s allowed at that
particular table number five don’t hand your money
directly to the dealer when you for sit down at a blackjack
table you need to exchange for cash for chips but don’t had your money directly to the
dealer casinos don’t want players and dealers in direct contact with each
other because there could be collusion to
steal chips therefore you should place your money on
the table in front of your bedding box that the other will then take it and
spread it out on the table to count it out then slide the corresponding number of
chips to you but don’t touch the chips into the dealer removes his hat this procedure issues so that the
overhead security cameras can see the transaction and make sure that it was handled
properly that’s it for part one of our video on
