Blackjack Probability Calculator vs Counting Cards

Card counting is a casino strategy some player use to reduce the house edge when they play blackjack. Made famous by the 'MIT Blackjack Team' in the 80s, this casino strategy is highly ineffective when you play online.

Besides being quite difficult, card counting is effective only under very specific circumstances that connect with the number of decks in play and how often they are shuffled by the dealer.

Although some online sites offer single-deck blackjack games - the best-suited variant for card counting - the majority of online games are built to make card counting nearly impossible.

That's where a blackjack tool like the probability calculator comes into play.

As pointed out on this blackjack strategy guide, the game's basic strategy gives you the guidance you need to reach optimal play and know exactly what is the best best way to play each individual hand of blackjack.

There is no better way to improve your winning odds, so make sure you keep it open on the screen every time you play a game of blackjack online if you want to get your top chances to win.
