Blackjack is supposed to be one of the online casino table games that gives you a good chance of winning but you have to play your cards right to give yourself a chance and luck still needs to be on your side. Your advantage is that you know what the dealer is going to do because they have to follow strict rules which involves nothing more complicated than drawing cards to 17 or above and stand once that point has been reached. As an online casino player you could follow the same Blackjack strategy but that is where the casinos advantage kicks in; if you bust you lose no matter what subsequently happens to the dealer. Everybody following that strategy including the dealer will have a percentage of hands in which they go bust so you can only win in those circumstances if you are still in the hand when the dealer goes bust. It is of course impossible to know when the dealer is likely to go bust as you can only see one of the dealers cards when you play your hand but even that can give you a clue. The weakest dealer Blackjack hands are 15 and 16 as they have to draw a card and there is an over  50% chance that they will bust so watch out for the dealer showing a 5 or a 6, if you have a similarly weak hand yourself it might be better to stand hoping that the dealer will bust rather drawing. Any Blackjack hand which is less than 10 or over 17 needs no thinking about, from then on it is pure luck but it is well worth reading about various strategies about splitting cards or doubling up as this could also increase your winnings. All online casinos offer Blackjack and here at you can link to several online casinos and play..
