Online casinos cater to a wide range of players. Therefore a player who has very specific interests needs to search that extra mile in order to get the best deal for himself. This will apply to players who want to play blackjack online and nothing else. This article will help them select the best blackjack online casinos.
First of all a good blackjack online casino has to be a good online casino. Therefore the basic due diligence cannot be dispensed with. Checking out whether the online casino is licensed from a reputed jurisdiction, whether the owners and operators have standing in the industry, whether the software is audited by independent agencies, whether a defined grievance redress mechanism exists and whether the customer support is responsive need to be done.
There are many varieties of blackjack games and the most important factor for a blackjack player is games that suit his needs. All online casinos will offer the basic variants of Vegas and European blackjack, so that should not be a problem. But a dedicated blackjack player will want to spend long hours at the blackjack table. He needs an online casino where the game speeds are quick so that time is not lost in card dealing. He may want to disable the frills like card animations and dealer's voices and online casinos that allow this would be preferred. Another way of increasing speed is through multi-hand blackjack games. Some online casinos allow players to wager on the basic variants playing up to five hands at a time.
Unlike online slots, blackjack involves a fair amount of skill. Without the capability of making optimal moves the long term blackjack player will get lower average returns. Many blackjack players may have learnt the optimal strategy but some may not have. These players should look out for online casinos that have auto play with strategy cards in their blackjack games. This feature allows players to play at great speed, without manual intervention but with optimal strategy.
Most blackjack players will want to wager on the innovative variants at blackjack from time to time. These make the game more exciting by forcing players to rework the basic strategy. Examples of such games are Pontoon where none of the dealer's cards are exposed and Double Exposure where both the dealer's cards are exposed. Then there are blackjack games that offer a progressive jackpot which is hit if the player is dealt a specified hand. Serious blackjack players may not want to wager on such variants all the time, but it is good to be at online casinos where such variety is available without the core needs being sacrificed.
Blackjack players who are accustomed to wagering in land casinos may not find the RNG simulated online casino games to their liking because the live casino experience is missing. Such players should select online casinos that offer live dealer blackjack games. Not only are the cards dealt from a real shoe by live dealers but players can also chat with the dealers while playing. This concept has not picked up in a big way so there will not be many live dealer blackjack online casinos. Also the game variety at these live dealer casinos will be minimal.
Finally players who want to count cards should not wager at online casinos. Because each deal is dealt from a new set of decks and the penetration factor that is crucial to card counting is zero.
