Have you ever heard of a suited blackjack? Or what about a player 21 winning? No?
Both are a couple of different ways in which players can win a little extra. And we all know that when it comes to increased profit opportunities it also means our odds in blackjack are higher. This is because ever chance a player gets to make more in a game of blackjack the house stands to lose more. And when the house stands to lose more our blackjack odds go up.
So what are these two alternate ways of winning in blackjack?
One of them is a suited blackjack. This is a blackjack made of a Jack, Queen, King or 10 paired with an Ace of the same suit. So, for example, a Jack of Spades and an Ace of Spades would be a suited blackjack, but a Jack of Clubs and an Ace of Spades would not be suited.
Generally in a game of blackjack that pays out for a suited blackjack, a regular blackjack would pay 3-2 and a suited blackjack would pay 2-1. So say you are wagering $10. If you won with a regular blackjack you would win $15, and if you won with a suited blackjack you would receive $20. So how you are making more money, and more money means better blackjack odds…to the tune of a 0.57% boost.
Another alternative way of winning in blackjack and increasing your blackjack odds is in a game in which a player’s hand that totals 21 automatically winning. This means that is you hit your hand to exactly 21 you would win. This boosts your blackjack odds by 0.54%
