Top 5 Blackjack Betting Techniques


Blackjack is the one casino game where capable players can turn the house advantage in their favour. You may have heard of card counting or seen some Hollywood movie where people beat the casino, but being a successful player does not involve counting cards or doing something illegal. Being a successful Blackjack player will take some learning, patience and a bit of luck. With patience and luck, you are on your own but we can tell you more about five of the best Blackjack betting techniques.

Martingale Blackjack Betting Technique

This is one of the more popular betting techniques out there. The Martingale betting strategy is very easy to learn and even easier to use.

This is a technique where you basically double your bet after each loss. So don’t start too big. When you lose a hand you double the previous bet amount. The idea is that you will win sooner or later and then you get your money back.

The risks are quite low. It is quite obvious that an extended losing streak would wipe your bankroll, but you are a gambler, you should know the risks involved.

Reverse Martingale Blackjack Betting Technique

This technique is the “glass-half-full” version of the Martingale technique above. With this technique, you double your bet every time you win. This means you play with the money you win, which poses a lower risk than placing a huge bet after you have lost six, seven times in a row.

With this strategy, you will need a lot of self-control. You will need to know when to stop doubling your bet. Losing one round will result in you losing all your winnings and basically starting from the beginning.

Parlay Blackjack Betting Technique

This is another classic betting technique and has been around for a long time. Its origins come from horse race bettors and the Blackjack community tweaked it to work for us. This technique suggests you use all or part of your winnings to increase your next bet size. It allows you to limit your risk and to use your winnings instead of your own money.

Novice Blackjack players like to use this because of the limited risks this technique poses. It allows you to be more daring and increase your winnings without having to empty your own bank account.

Labouchere Blackjack Betting Technique

This is one of the more complicated ones, but can a very profitable technique.

You start by writing down a series of numbers. About six or seven numbers will do. These numbers should be between four and eight. Preferably the starting number should not be larger than a six.

Now let us say this is your sequence; 4-5-4-7-6-8-5. You start by adding the first and last numbers in the sequence and making a bet accordingly. For instance, in our series, you would have bet $9 or nine units. The next would be $13 and so on. This you do until your row is complete. If you were to lose a bet, you would add the amount you wagered to the end of the sequence. So let us say we lost the first hand in our sequence, then we would have added a nine to the end of our sequence and would have made a second bet of $14.

The thought behind this is that you will eventually win back your losses. It takes some time, but once you have it, it might become your favourite method to use.

Oscars Grind Blackjack Betting Technique

This is a timely technique. You won’t go into the casino on a Saturday morning and come out with a fortune at noon. This technique is for those that, like the name suggests, likes the grind.

With the Oscar Grind technique you use a progression of winning bets to keep you winning. You double your winnings until you lose. When you lose, you will go back to betting one unit until you are back to a profit and you can start doubling your bet again.

Compared to other techniques this is a lower risk technique. It won’t produce massive earnings at once, but for a patient player, this technique has its benefits.

There is no such thing as a waterproof technique. Although these techniques might have worked for a few people, this is Blackjack. It is casino game designed to put the odds against you. It is important to discover which technique is suitable for your Blackjack betting style. Enjoy your game, practice your technique and I wish you the best of luck.
