Multi-Hand Blackjack: Are the Odds Better than single Hand Play

Hundreds and thousands of online casino goers risk larger amounts of their cash for bigger returns, but what if there was a game out there that justified the larger stakes through improved odds?

Multi-hand Blackjack often gets passed up because of its three way bet risk, but there is a massive advantage over Single Hand Blackjack especially if the casino is only using one deck of cards. The point of Multi-hand Blackjack is obviously to give yourself more chances against the house in winning, but with the common even odds pay back attached to the gam how can three bets be better than one bet?

The answer to this question is a tricky one, but it does make a lot of sense when you compare three chances at winning against the dealer to having just one chance. Betting three hands means you can always hold one hand back and hope the dealer goes bust and push the other two hands a little more.

Placing three Blackjack bets, one bet on each hand against the house will cost you three bets. If you win just one of these bets, you will be paid at even odds giving you your original bet back plus your win, which is the same amount you have bet, so you have basically doubled your money on your stake placed on the winning hand. At the beginning of the hands you have placed three wagers, but thanks to your win you have recovered two out of three of these bets. This covers one of your other bets, so the end result is that you have only lost one bet, but you had three shots at the dealer.



Let’s push the stakes up a little and say you are a Single Hand Blackjack player and you normally stake an average of $15 a deal. You lose $15 straight away when your hand busts or is beaten by the house, and you win $30 straight away if you beat the house. Split this $15 stake into three bets of $5 and now you have three $5 chances on three different hands. Now, if you win just one time out of three, you still get $10 back out of your $15 bet, so you will be just $5 down and you had the major advantage of being able to play the dealer three times. If you win on two hands you now have $20 making a $15 profit. If you win all three hands because the dealer went bust, you now have $30.

Finally, if you don’t want to change your bet from $15 then you can use the same stake on each hand playing Multi-hand Blackjack, but instead play a shorter session than usual. If you play 90 hands over a period of 3 hours then cut down your play time to 1 hour and play Three-handed Blackjack a nd still play 90 hands overall in 30 deals and see if you come out better off than your 3 hours sessions on the Single hand tables.

In short, you can play exactly the same game in Single Hand Blackjack and get one chance at the dealer, and you lose exactly the same amount of money than you do when winning one hand out of three playing Single Hand Blackjack and losing that hand. With that one chance you can lose instantly two or three hands in a row, but play with three chances at the dealer and you will still get your $30 pay outs when the dealer goes bust, but you will also lose far less money in the long run because you are hedging your bets in a more strategic fashion.
