888 Casino is one of the few online casinos that runs a blog site with content based on casino gaming. It is a fairly active blog page with new content added every few days. The latest article is a must read for blackjack players, whether online or offline. It explains over a dozen blackjack strategies that you must follow. A few of them are discussed here.

Many of the blackjack tips deal with split, an option that opens up when you are dealt a pair. A pair is two cards of the same rank. Always split aces and eights, irrespective of the dealer face up card. Splitting aces gives you two chances of getting a blackjack, and any way hand values of 2 and 12 are pathetic. Splitting eights does not give the same advantage, but it will help you to cut losses in the long run against strong dealer hands. Never split a pair of tens or fives. Splitting a pair of tens gives two chances at blackjack, but what you lose is more. A two-card hand value of 20 is next only to a blackjack and a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Two fives give a hand value of ten and this will more often than not end close to 20. Staring with a hand value of 5 you are likely to flounder in no man’s land.

Then you have a number of tips for the double option. Always double on a hand value of 11. Even with the one card allowed you are likely to get close to 20 so it is worth staking the extra amount. When you are on 10 instead of 11 you hand becomes a mite weaker. So you do not double when the dealer is at the strongest with a face up card of ace or ten value card. But you always double when the dealer is at nine or less.
