Using our free Blackjack Trainer is simple and straightforward. You can press deal to begin immediately, or customize the options to mimic the version of blackjack that you would like to practice. The blackjack chart under “Help” will update depending on the options and rules of the game.


If you are new to Blackjack or consider yourself a beginner, we recommend reading our How to Play Blackjack article first!

There are seven variables to tweak the Blackjack Trainer. To adjust these settings click the Options button:

 

Whether the Dealer hits or stands on soft 17:

  • Dealer hits on soft 17 – worse for the player
  • Dealer stands on soft 17 – better for the player


Is surrender allowed?

This is a rule that allows you to fold your hand immediately, prior to seeing the Dealer’s hole card, and sacrifice your hand to save half your bet.

 

  • Allow surrender – surrender is typically allowed in 6 and 8 deck games. This is an excellent rule for players.
  • No surrender – surrender is rarely allowed in single deck and double deck games.


Can you re-split your hands and if so, how many times?

You are always allowed to split your cards the first time, but if you are then dealt the same card again, can you split your cards again? In a 8 deck card game, you are typically allowed to re-split up to 3 times.

  • Re-split allowed (3)
  • Re-split allowed (2)
  • Re-split allowed (1)
  • Re-split not allowed


Are you allowed to double-down after splitting?

Double allow after splitting – this is VERY important for the player and is typically the default for Vegas casinos.

Double as first option only – you may only double down as your first play, not after splitting.


How many decks are you playing?

  • 8 decks
  • 6 decks
  • 4 decks
  • 2 decks


How much does Blackjack pay?

Blackjack in a 6 deck or 8 deck in Vegas typically pays 3:2, but there is a recent and disturbing trend for the big casinos to have blackjack tables that only pay 6:5 on tables. The casinos are targeting casual players that are not aware of this difference. Be sure to find the tables that pay 3:2!

  • Blackjack pays 3:2
  • Blackjack pays 6:5 – this is typical for a double deck or single deck blackjack game.


Type of game you would like to practice:

  • Hard mode – provides more difficult scenarios to test you.
  • Splits only – play just splitting hands.
  • Soft hands only – play just soft hands (hands with an ace).
  • Random mode – purely random shuffle.
