    Hi All

    I am a bit addicted to online blackjack.

    Namely, the computerised ones.

    I lose every time.

    EG - Just deposited £25 at betat. Lost 10 hands in a row, I get 21, they do too etc. I get 20 they get 21 from a 2.

    I get two 10s, they have a 6.

    I split, 20 and 20 they get 21. FML

    This happens to me all the time, i do not know why I play..

    Is this format totally fixed? Can anyone recommend another way..

    BJ online is a streaky thing. I made some years ago 4500 with a 200 deposit but I was very lucky. Make sure that your bet is not more than 1/100 your deposit and raise your bet if you have a lucky streak.

    That`s all I can tell you. If you want a long playtime play live dealers :)

    You split 10's? and you had twenty? Two 10's and you split? Is this a multiplayer table or just you and a dealer?

    So you did split two tens (20) ? why would you do that? Especially a one on one?

    Not sure really..

    Always thought if they have a six and I have two tens then I will likely win twice!

    Is that wrong?

    Well. as a rule. I wouldn't be the anchor in a multiplayer game as you may get smacked..but that is just me...or even not an anchor.;)

    As a rule do not split 10's.

    Ok

    haha I am so confused.

    I have seen so many videos online where ppl always split tens on a 6 and win!

    But I guess it makes sense..

    Outside of that though, I am having HORRRIFIC luck

    A 6 sucks when the dealer shows it. If you hold two tens, hold.

    It is a complex game because if you are in a multiplayer game the idea is that the 'table' against the dealer.The table has to try and play as many 'faces' to out the dealer. If all players are on the same page. then it can be a great game.
    If it is just you and a dealer, it is not one I would play.

    I wouldn't bother with the computerized blackjack version of Microgaming nor NetEnt. I'm sure they reach the advertised RTP over a million hands.
    But 95 outta 100 times you'll fail to even double up your deposit from my experience. It just seems extremely difficult to win during a session, let alone getting ahead. The wins just frequently seem to happen when being down in a session to allow you some playtime, while throwing you a bone every now and then, although it never seems to last long.

    The constant feeling of never being 'comfortable', even when you have 19, 20 vs. dealer's 4, 5 or 6 or when doubling down with 10, 11 vs. dealer's 4, 5 or 6, makes it a game I can absolutely not recommend. You're better off playing live blackjack at an online casino.

    Then I haven't even mentioned the horrifying experiences I had when raising the betsize substantially. I think it's a major fail that these big software companies can't even create a card game that reflects the real land based version in an accurate way. A total jaw dropping experience most of the time.

    YES

    I feel the same.

    I am a bit strange in that I can find the live version annoyingly slow.

    But whenever I have 11, I double down and get 12. Literally every time on the netent, realistic etc.

    Ok, I am done with those. Live it is.

    @ Casino2014man find yourself a basic strategy that matches the rules for the BJ you are playing.

    ^ This. You wouldn't believe the amount of hostility I've seen at blackjack tables in B/Ms towards other players. I tend to stick to the general game strategy when other players are involved as I don't want to hurt another players chances of winning, but geez some players just take all the fun out of it. But on the other side I have seen players who are very nice about it, and try to help new players learn to play, and explain why they should or shouldn't play a hand whatever way.

    I have tried so many.

    Just seems impossible to ever end up up from them, ever!

    I read things like 99.4% RTP

    Then I lose 50 quid on 2 pound bets in 10 mins.

    I think I need to move on :(

    There are some great online casinos like Mr Green and Unibet for instance where the min. betsize is only 5 euros per hand at the live blackjack tables. The game might be much slower, but in my opinion much more enjoyable. There are even "London" roulette tables (not to sure about the BJ) which have UK dealers active to keep you entertained.

    On the contrary to computerised blackjack, I actually do have profitable sessions every now and then. But of course losing streaks in live blackjack also happen, I remember losing 1K in like 15 losing hands in a row.
