Advantages of Playing 6:5 Multi-deck over Single Deck Blackjack Games

Blackjack gaming experts say that single-deck blackjack games yield more blackjacks than multi-deck blackjack games.

In case of single-deck games, players who get an ace have a 31.37% chance of getting a face card or a ten card so that they can complete their blackjack and win the game. In case of multi-deck games, players who get an ace have only a 30.87% chance of completing their blackjack. If the casino pays 3:2 for blackjack on single-deck blackjack games, playing single-deck blackjack is recommended because the house edge can be reduced to 0.15% by following basic blackjack strategy.

However, single-deck blackjack is not worth playing if the casino offers only 6:5 for blackjack. If players get blackjack on a $10 bet, the casino will award them only $12 instead of the $15 they would have received had the casino offered 3:2 for blackjack. Besides, the house edge for 6:5 single-deck blackjack games is 1.45%.

Blackjack experts, therefore, urge players to avoid single-deck 6:5 blackjack games and play six-deck 6:5 blackjack game instead because the latter is three times better than the former.

Blackjack table limits vary from one casino to the other and are set by pit bosses or shift managers depending on the number of customers.
