As a blackjack player, it is important to be familiar with the various soft spots in the game. A soft spot is a specific area of the table where the house advantage is relatively low.
This means that, relative to other parts of the table, blackjack players have a better chance of winning.
There are four soft spots in blackjack: one on the dealer’s left side, one near the player’s left hand corner, one near the player’s right hand corner, and one near the player’s right side. The soft spot nearest to the dealer is generally considered to be the weakest spot, while the soft spot nearest to the player is considered to be the strongest spot.
The house advantage varies depending on which soft spot you are playing at. For example, at a soft spot near the player’s right side, the house advantage is around 1.
5%. However, at a soft spot near the dealer’s left side, the house advantage can be as high as 5%.
