Blackjack, also known as 21 is the most widely played casino banking game in the world wide web. The basic rules of the game involve adding the value of an initial two card hand in hopes of being dealt a value of twenty-one. If a value of less than twenty-one is dealt, the player may choose to be dealt single cards until they either reach a value of twenty one, reach a value they feel comfortable to play, or reach a value that exceeds twenty-one. Depending on the particular blackjack rules in a given casino, basic strategy reduces the house advantage to less than 1%. Card-counting, if done correctly, can give the player an advantage, typically ranging from 0 to 2% over the house.In addition, in a multi-hand single deck game, it is possible for insurance to be a good bet simply by observing the other cards on the table - if the dealer has an Ace, then there are 51 cards left in the deck, of which 16 are tens. However, if there are as few as 2 players playing, and none of their two initial cards are tens, then that means that 16 out of 47 remaining cards, are ten - better than 1 in 3, and so the insurance bet is a good one
