How to Play Basic Blackjack : Money Odds in a Game of Blackjack


Hi! This is Daniel on behalf of Expert Village.
In this clip we’re going to be talking about
the odds and your money at a blackjack table.
Now when you play blackjack the odds are very
simple, on a standard hand if it’s not a
blackjack, the odds are one to one. If you
happen to place two chips down and you win
the hand, you’re going to get two chips
back, basically doubling your money. If you
were to place two chips down and the dealer
were to deal you a blackjack, he’s going
to pay you three to two, so for every two
chips you have down he’s going to pay you
three back and you want to be careful when
looking at your chips whenever a payout happens
to make sure the odds are being handled correctly.
The other thing to make sure of is when you’re
getting insurance that you’re paid correctly,
that’s another odd you need to check on
and that’s usually a two to one payout.
Now if you have multiple chips out there,
let’s say you have $40 in chips out, when
getting paid out, the dealer simply going
to measure the chips up and make sure that
they sit level, he’s going to do the same
thing with all your chips. He’ll take a
stack of chips, simply go out measure them,
you’ll want to make sure that he’s done
it correctly. Remember this is your money!

  1. Slight problem with content of video: 3:2 payout on blackjack is not necessarily true. In fact, on the Vegas Strip it's now the exception, not the rule. Most blackjacks now only pay 6:5.
