Single Deck Blackjack

As the name suggests, Single Deck Blackjack is a Blackjack game that is played with only one deck (usually 6 decks are used). That a big advantage for good players because they can calculate odds and probabilities. Basically, with only one hand, when you see your cards and the first card of the banker,you know that those cards cannot be drawn another time like it can happen with multiple decks. Moreover, you can bet on 3 hands at the time so you know 7 cards (2 x 2 cards + 1 card face up from the banker) out of 52 available. The information can help you to make good decisions and get more winnings.

For the beginners, the blackjack rule is very simple you have to be the closest of 21 without going over to win. Ace are worth 1 or 11, Jacks, Queens and King 10 and the other cards (2 to 10) get their numerical value. A blackjack is when you hit 21 with 2 cards Ace + one of the cards that is worth 10. Blackjack pays 1.5 to 1 your bet against 1 to 1 for a winning hand or a 21 done with more cards.
