In the world of casino gambling, blackjack is a popular game that can be played with a variety of different decks. There are six deck variants of blackjack, each with its own set of odds and payouts.
The odds of playing blackjack with a six deck deck are 1 in 21. This means that, on average, you will be dealt six cards, and you will lose if you have a total of 21. If you have an 18 or 19, you will either win or draw without losing anything. If you have an Ace through 2, you will lose 1 point for each card beyond the Ace.
For example, if you are playing with a five card hand and are dealt the 2, 3, 5, 6 and 7 of the deck (a total of 14 cards), your hand would be considered as having 16 points (2+3+5+6+7). If you were to draw two additional cards (for a total of 15 cards), your hand would then be worth 18 points (2+3+5+6+7+8+9=18).
