In a typical game of blackjack, each player is dealt three cards. After these cards are dealt, the player can either “hit” or “stand.
” If the player decides to hit, they replace the three cards they just received with new cards and take their original hand (minus any new cards) to the dealer. If the player decides to stand, they keep their original hand and no new cards are taken.
The game is played until one player has lost all of their money. In infinite blackjack, each round is played until one player has lost all of their money.
This may sound like it would be a disadvantage for the player, but in fact it can be quite advantageous.
One reason is that the house edge in blackjack is 1.5%. This means that for every $100 played, the house will earn $150 in winnings and pay out $150 in losses. However, in infinite blackjack, the house edge shrinks to 0%.
This means that for every $100 played, the house will earn $0 in winnings and pay out $0 in losses. Thus, while playing infinite blackjack may not be as profitable as playing traditional blackjack on average, it can still be a profitable proposition if done carefully.
