Do Blackjack Betting Systems Work?

Blackjack School

Often when we surf the web we come across websites that offer to sell us some betting system that is sure to help us win a lot of money from the casino. These systems can be offered via books or CD’s that will be sent to your home once you pay for them, and others offer you to pay and download an e-book or software onto your computer.

Let us state right from the start; betting systems that guarantee wins do not work in the long run and anyone trying to sell you a system while promising big wins is probably trying to scam you by getting you to pay for worthless information.

Many people confuse blackjack betting strategy with blackjack betting system so let us first get clear on what is what:

Betting System

A set of rules that dictates fluctuations in your wagering based solely on whether you won or lost the previous hand. It has been proven that betting systems can help a player make a bit of money at first but can also make him lose their entire bankroll much quicker than they planned to.

Another aspect of betting systems that is highly disturbing is the fact that many of them are offered for sale. Think about it for a second, if you knew of a way to beat the casino, would you be at the tables earning yourself a small fortune, or would you be selling it for a few dollars on some crappie website?

The answer seems to be clear; if the system worked whoever invented it would keep it for themselves and make themselves rich, rather than peddle it online. Remember that there is mathematical proof that over the course of many playing sessions any betting systems would fail to generate continuous wins.

Betting Strategy

Blackjack is a game where past events have a direct effect on future events. Because of this you are able to use blackjack betting strategy in order to play optimal blackjack.

A good betting strategy is based on mathematical probability of a particular event happening and every type of blackjack has its own betting strategy that is influenced by the set of rules that govern the type of blackjack you are playing.

Free betting strategy information is available on our site. We also recommended good blackjack books for those who wish to further understand the complicated mathematics behind each betting strategy.

All blackjack betting strategies work better when you are able to count cards, but they are also very useful for players who do not count cards.

Card Counting Systems

The only blackjack system that is mathematically proven to work is card counting. There are many different card counting systems and information on them can be found on our site or in many blackjack books.

It is very important to remember that card counting is only possible when playing in land-based casinos and online casinos that offer live-dealer blackjack. Card counting is not possible with software-based blackjack games as there is an automatic shuffling of all cards after every round of play.

In Conclusion

Do not get tempted to spend money on betting systems. If you are tempted to spend money on an e-book describing some blackjack card counting system, try to first to look for free information on the system online. More often than not you will be able to get all the info you need without ever having to pay for it.

In case you do decide to go ahead and purchase a card counting system online, make sure to check the website and references that card counting system does. Do not simply take the word of testimonials on the card counting system website because testimonials might be a fake. Try to search for information on blackjack forums and other websites before handing over your hard earned cash.
