How to Choose a Variation of Blackjack to Suit Your Play Style

There are so many variations of blackjack that it can often be difficult to know where to start when choosing a version that is right for you. Land based or online, blackjack is a casino game with over a dozen variations; however the core object of the game remains essentially the same… Beat the Dealer! There are 3 key things that you need to consider when choosing a version of Blackjack to play.

Firstly… Do your Homework!

While discussing personal preferences with friends and other players we noticed a common theme on how they went about choosing a suitable game type for themselves. It consisted of reading a lot of articles and reviews of different game types and then experimenting with the ones that stood out from the reviews. To us this seemed the most logical first step and it seems to have really worked for them in terms of quickly finding a game type to suit their playing style. It also allowed them to skip past potentially boring versions which really left them with lots of time to get hands on with the versions of blackjack they liked at first glance to find out which they preferred.

Choosing a version of Blackjack that suits you

Be really honest with yourself at this point and ask yourself what your intentions really are. Do you want to just have fun? Do you want to win big money? Now while I’m sure everyone just shouted a loud and very emphatic ‘YES!’ right after those two, the most important factor to consider is your available budget. Is the minimum limit too high in comparison to what you want to spend for each round? Because in our mind it makes no sense to be bankrupt after 3 or 4 rounds when you can play for longer with a smaller minimum bet, increasing your experience playing the game and also the fun factor as a direct result. Consider all these 3 points carefully to come to a balanced decision on which version best suits you. For online casinos you can also factor in what attractive bonuses are available at the same time.

Keeping it fresh, variety is the spice of life!

Finding 2 or 3 versions of Blackjack that you like is not uncommon and may serve you well in the long run as switching between different versions can help to keep your interest peaked and your experience as fun as possible, it is after all the main reason you came to play in the first place, alongside winning that big life changing sum of money of course! Splitting your time evenly between one or two different types can increase your chances of winning and keep you motivated to play and win big time and time again.
