When is the best time to play casino card games?

If you have never played any casino card games before, I will advise you to visit the casinos early in the morning when most of them offer classes with low minimum bets. During this time, the casinos offer their players minimum bets at reasonable prices to attract customers to play. However, in the afternoons and evenings, you will hardly find any tables with $5 bets.

Blackjack is one of the table games where your primary objective is to draw cards, which sum up to 21 or a value closer to 21 than the dealer. When the dealer starts the game, he gives each player a card face up starting from the player sited to his left and then deals one card faced up to himself.

Another round of cards are dealt face up to every player in the same order and then the dealer picks a second card, this time facing down. After the cards are dealt, you will be expected to draw cards. If you draw a card value exceeding 21, you lose or go bust. If your card value is closer to 21 as compared to the dealer’s, you win. A tie or push occurs when your card value is the same as that of the dealer. If the card value of the first two cards dealt to you is equal to 21, you win 1.5 that amount of money you bet.

What is the best blackjack strategy?

There are different betting strategies you can use when placing blackjack wagers. Some of the strategies include the doubling up and flat betting. My favorite strategy is the flat betting where every bet is similar to the previous one. For instance, if you are a $20 bettor, then when flat betting each of your bet will be for $20.
