Never Bust Blackjack Strategy
One of the different blackjack strategies is the “never bust” strategy. This strategy has players standing on totals from 12 to 16 and never taking a hit. Let’s take a closer look at his online blackjack strategy.
The “never bust” strategy is simple enough as you never hit when you are holding a total of 12 or more no matter what the dealer holds. When you have an 11 or less you always take a hit. The good news with this strategy is that you never bust but the bad news is that the strategy gives the house a higher edge.
When you play the “never bust” strategy you are not hitting in any situation but the goal in blackjack is to give maximize your possible return. The problem with standing on certain numbers and when the dealer has a 7, 8, 9, 10, face card or ace is that the percentages say to hit. Anything can happen in a single instance but over time, the probabilities say that to hit is a better choice in some situations rather than standing.
The percentages say that never hitting when you have 12 to 16 against a dealer’s big card adds about 5% to the house edge in blackjack to the online casino. So while it might sound nice to “never bust” the reality is that playing this strategy is not a good idea when playing online blackjack.
