Playing blackjack with 6 decks can be a daunting task, but with the right strategy and practice, it can be made to be a fun and profitable experience. When playing blackjack, it is important to understand the basic rules of the game and how to apply them to the specific playing environment.
The basic rules of blackjack are as follows:
– Dealer Blackjack: The dealer has a hand of face cards and one card that is face down. The player either takes the dealer’s hand or hits if they have a better hand.
If the player hits, they receive another card and the dealer keeps whatever they had before. If the player takes the dealer’s hand, they receive two cards. .
– Soft 17: This rule applies when there are two or more soft 17s in a deck (i.e. an Ace, 2, 3 or 4).
In this case, any Ace is worth one point, any 2 is worth two points, any 3 is worth three points and so on up to a 5 which is worth five points.
– Hard 17: This rule applies when there are only two hard 17s in a deck (e.g. an Ace and a 10).
In this case, any Ace is worth two points, any 2 is worth four points, any 3 is worth five points and so on up to a 5 which is still worth five points.
– Bonus Hand: When it comes time for the bonus hand (either after splitting or after drawing), all hands are dealt again but this time the first card dealt (the face up card) is automatically considered to be the bonus card. This means that any hand that totals eleven or more (including the bonus card) automatically wins regardless of what other cards are in that hand.
There are also some specific strategies that can be employed when playing blackjack with 6 decks in order to increase your chances of winning. One such strategy is known as “splitting” or “choosing” split hands where players choose which hand(s) they want to play before drawing cards.
Splitting can also be done before any hands have been dealt in order to take into account potential future bonuses as well as potential splits that might occur while playing those hands.
Another strategy that can be used when playing blackjack with 6 decks is “playing high” where players attempt to build their hands as high as possible in order to increase their chances of winning even if their initial bet isn’t necessarily a high number. By doing this, players may wind up losing some initial bets but ultimately will end up winning more overall due to the increased chances of hitting a Bonus Hand or splitting aces or tens hands while playing high.
