Since the turn of the millennium the gambling industry has experienced a phenomenal amount of growth largely due to the popularity of online gambling.
Initially starting out as a fantasy, online gambling has slowly but surely gained a foothold with gamblers all around the globe.

In this article we cover several blackjack strategies that could help transform your love affair with blackjack from costly to potentially profitable. Read on to find out all about the top blackjack strategies.

French mathematician Paul Lévy, an expert in probability, introduced the theory that would later be known as the ‘Martingale’ in 1934. The theory held that in a game of heads or tails if a gambler doubled their stake after every loss wins would cancel out losses and the probability of winning would soon approach 1.
The problem with the theory however is that no-one has the bankroll possible to approach the point of turning the probability of winning to 1. That doesn’t mean however that the Martingale strategy doesn’t have its benefits, especially when it comes to blackjack.
Before playing sit down and work out what you would be happy having your maximum wager as. Then start playing with the lowest wager possible and every time you lose, double your wager.
When you win you will make back the money you have lost in addition to a little extra, just be sure to reset your wagering after you have won. Also be ready to cut your losses if you reach your maximum wager and you still haven’t won.
Sticking with famous mathematicians, this strategy comes from Leonardo Bonacci, who was born in 12th century Pisa and is widely regarded as one of the most prominent mathematicians of the Middle Ages.
His most famous work – The Fibonacci Sequence – involves adding the sum of the previous numbers in the sequence to create the next, for example:
Without getting too bogged down in the mathematics, the reason that the Fibonacci Sequence is so important is that the quantity produced by the division of each number in the sequence is 1.618 which is referred to as ‘The Golden Ratio’.
If you use the Fibonacci sequence in your betting patterns, whereby you bet in the following way - £1, £1, £2, £3, £5, £8, £13, £21, £34, £55 etc you will be invoking the Golden Ratio and thus maximising your chances of winning.
The issue with the two strategies above is that there is no limit, the numbers in both sequences are infinite and we’re guessing that your bankroll isn’t infinite.
So the final strategy that we’re recommending is the Steady Eddie Strategy which you won’t find anywhere else on the internet because we’ve literally just made the name up.
It is based on our own extensive experience of gambling and the feedback of readers and fellow players throughout the year. In order to use it you’re going to need to do a little bit of mental arithmetic before you sit down to play.
First you need to work out how much money you want to spend in your blackjack session and how long you want to play for. Let’s say for example that you are willing to spend £60 over the course of two hours which equates to £30 an hour.
With the average game of blackjack lasting a minute, you would therefore need to wager 50p a game to spend your £60 and play for two hours. If you use this strategy you’ll maximise your gambling session and minimise your losses.
It’s the best way to make sure you are having fun and not betting beyond your means and whilst it may not be as glamorous as the other two strategies, it’s the one that we opt for every single time.
