I have always enjoyed the game of Blackjack and rarely leave a casino after a night on the Blackjack table without winning. I do not however claim to be a professional player. My interest in the techniques and strategies behind the game of Blackjack became serious four years ago when my brother in law started playing online Blackjack to cash in on the bonuses offered. I decided to give it a go and made 10,000 pounds in 3 months playing on average 3 – 4 hours a night.
The Blackjack Bonus Scheme Bonanza – How does it work?
I registered with a few casinos and played for real money using the Basic Blackjack Strategy which can be found on any search engine. Playing strictly by this Strategy reduces the house edge to an absolute minimum. Most casinos offer bonuses as an incentive to join and play, sometimes a one off on signing up but often on a monthly basis. In order to qualify for the bonus you have to meet with certain wagering requirements.
To illustrate the technique we will take a look at a real play example taken from playing Blackjack at a well known online casino
I paid 50 pounds to the casino and must play 250 games (or hands) to qualify for the bonus. I wager the minimum bet on each hand (usually 1 – 2 pounds) and play strictly according to the Basic Blackjack Strategy. After the wagering requirement (250 games or hands) I would be roughly equal with the house (sometimes a little up, say 60 pounds and sometimes a little down, say 40 pounds).
