I follow a lot of pages on Reddit (poker, gambling, blackjack, etc) and what I’ve noticed is a lot of people think they can get lucky and win big, when most of the time it doesn’t work that way. The only game that really is beatable is this game of blackjack. This small edge the casino has can be taken advantage of when played right. It doesn’t mean that you’re going to win every time, but over time you will walk out with more money than you started with. Dedicate yourself to learning basic strategy at least (for casual/recreational players), then move onto counting (Hi-Lo is the easiest to learn), then learn the deviations for Hi-Lo (there’s different deviations for different rules like S17/H17 and 6D/2D/1D), and finally, be patient. You have to put in the hours of practice to perfect your craft.
