Single Deck Blackjack

Bovada Single Deck Blackjack

Next variation which is worth being dealt with is Bovada blackjack. This interesting variant is denominated here because of its popularity which still exists, regardless of a considerable break in a few decades. Even now very few land-based casinos offer this kind of blackjack game. But thanks to the Internet this old popular game is highly available for playing nowadays. Opinions A man should be acknowledged that a lot of casinos stopped offering this game to their visitors after the methods of card counting appeared. The history of card counting is described in a bit later and it is highly recommended to be read and remembered even for plain general knowledge. Bovada Single Deck blackjack probably considered to be the most profitable blackjack variation because only one standard deck of cards is used, and the fewer cards are used in the game - the bigger chance is to remember or to count cards and to calculate the following ones. That's how many people think and that's how it was many years ago. But nowadays the situation is a bit different. The casinos still offer one deck of cards, but they cut down the player's advantage by using more strict rules which give an advantage to the dealer. Still, this kind of blackjack is very rare and the rules should be known to.

Bovada Single Deck blackjack Rules

There is no principal difference between Bovada Single Deck blackjack and the basis, but there are some points which quite change the process of gambling: The dealer always hits on soft 17s. Doubling down is allowed on 9, 10 and 11 only. Doubling down is forbidden after a split. Splitting is allowed only once. The resulting hands are paid independently. Only one card is dealt with each Ace if they were split. If such card is 10-valued it counts as 21, not as Bovada blackjack. Insurance is allowed. Here you see that the main point here is that dealer hits on soft 17s instead of standing. When dealer hits on soft 17 he has no chance to bust even if he gets a 10-valued card, and in another case, he probably gets a better hand than the player does. Payouts The payouts for this blackjack kind are absolutely standard. Bovada Single Deck Blackjack Strategy The correct strategy allows players to lower the house edge to about 0.48%.
