Online gaming has grown massively since its early inception and along with Poker, Blackjack is one of the most popular casino games played online.
Ok, so everyone knows that the house has the edge, but did you know that there is a way of playing that can actually reduce that house edge to just 1%?
It’s a way of playing that relies on using a clear strategy and those helpful people over at 888Casino have produced a really cool comprehensive Ultimate Blackjack Strategy Guide to avoid all pitfalls and maximise your chances of winning big. For example there’s good information on when to split your cards, when to double down, and most importantly when to hit and when to stand.
To go with the guide they also enlisted blackjack ninja, John Scanlon of Aspers Casino to give ex Arsenal footballer Ray Parlour and former TOWIE star Amy Childs some expert tuition based on the recommendation in the BlackJack Strategy Guide. But there was a twist.
As you can see from the video below, to test the celebs new found wisdom (and to raise the tension levels too) someone came up with the idea of attaching electrodes to the pairs chairs when they made a wrong decision against the recommended guidelines an electric shock was administered.
Amy seemed to have paid more attention at class as even before her recently announced pregnancy she made a series of winning calls, much to her obvious delight.
As for Parlour, his decision making wasn’t quite so good, as a result it was pretty much game over for the Romford Pele.
