Blackjack Stand or Bust: Learning the Dealer’s Blackjack Odds

Playing blackjack at the tables for high stakes for beginners is a costly prospect, but what if there was a game that gave a crash course in starting hands to play and when to stand or bust?

Feast your eyes on this because Blackjack Stand or Bust is no joke when it comes to getting your Blackjack odds right. Players have four hands to start with, and each of the hands shows a single card face-up. That means in this game you are the dealer and have the same rules as the dealer has in many of the online Blackjack table games. Your hand will stand on any total that appears 17 or above and hit on any hand that total up below 17.

Out of the four face up cards presented, all you have to do is select which card you want to use to play the game, and then select whether you believe the hand will go bust over 21 or stand above 17. Each option, ‘stand’ or ‘bust’ has a cash amount connected to it, giving players the exact amount they will win should their bet hit the table running.

The higher the value of the card the better the pay-out for a bust, and visa-versa for lower value cards. Also, of course the lower the numerical value of the card then then the lower the return becomes for a stand, and the higher the value for a bust. For example, look at the return value for standard $10.00 at being dealt a 9 card versus being dealt a 4 card or an Ace of lower value.

Card: 9                                                Card: 4                                                Card: Ace
Stand Pays: $12.65                 Stand Pays: $16.24                 Stand Pays: $10.98
Bust Pays: $41.55                   Bust Pays: $24.08                   Bust Pays: $83.23
 
In the above example the stakes are only $10.00 per hand, so the figures shown for a $100.00 would increase as in the example below:
 
Card: 9                                                Card: 4                                                Card: Ace
Stand Pays: $126.50               Stand Pays: $16.24                 Stand Pays: $109.80
Bust Pays: $415.50                 Bust Pays: $24.08                   Bust Pays: $832.30



For all those Blackjack fanatics out there this is a game for you. What’s even more useful is that it is especially valuable for those of you that love the multi-hand blackjack tables. Blackjack Stand or Bust gives you the house seat with exactly the same rules. With the human mind trained to understand patterns, and our table games strategies giving us odds to go with on top, this game gives you a mammoth amount of experience. Experience builds up patterns, and as you are sitting in the dealer seat you will get a first-hand feel of how often the dealer will go bust or stand on certain denominators.
 
Why is this useful for multi-hand blackjack players? Well if you are going up against the house with 3 hands, you at least need to win 1 of those hands to double your money on that hand’s bet. That means if you lose on the other 2 hands you lose 2 bets, but on the third hand you win you 1 bet back plus 1 bet on top, giving you 2 bets back out of 3. What’s more is that you may just have a hunch the dealer will go bust and hold all 3 hands for a 6 bet return.
 
Blackjack is a game of odds and experience and here is the chance to build up your experience and make more educated decisions during your blackjack games. In the end, you are playing a more efficient game by cutting the risk down by becoming via a more knowledgeable betting strategy.
