Where To Play Blackjack
The following tables show the starting advantage or disadvantage enjoyed by basic strategy players under different rules for different numbers of decks. To start, the fewer number of decks the better. Single deck offers the best starting advantage by far, but most casinos compensate by offering rules that recover most of their advantage.
While interpreting these numbers, you must remember that they are based on basic strategy play. Certain rules would allow the card counter even greater advantage if decisions like surrender or double down are altered with the count.
Starting Advantage by Number of Decks
Rule Variations have a large effect on your starting advantage. Adjust your starting advantage with the rule variations that apply for the number of decks.
P.S. If you ever see a game offering 2 for 1 payment on blackjack then it would be very advantageous to play. I have seen it offered as specials in some online blackjack games.
