Fast Facts about Blackjack

  • Each 52 card deck has 4 suits of 13 cards. There are sixteen 10-value cards (10-J-Q-K), and Aces which can assume a value of 1 or 11. 
  • The odds of hitting a particular card other than a 10-value card are 7.7%, and 31% for 10-value cards.
  • As a player you can expect to hit a Blackjack once every 21 hands on average.
  • When the dealer is showing an Ace upcard, there is a 31% chance that the dealer has Blackjack. 
  • You can expect to win at least 48% of the hands you play. But this number goes up when you use Blackjack Strategy to boost your game.
  • On average you can expect a hard 12 to 17 value hand with 43% of the hands you are dealt. These hand values typically lose but basic Blackjack strategy can help you. 
  • If you are dealt 3 consecutive hands, there is only a 14% chance that you will lose all three.
  • The dealer busts 28% of the time but often wins when busting, while players using basic Blackjack strategy bust just 16% of the time.
