Here are some tips and tricks to wining this casino game of Blackjack Carnival!
The online blackjack dealer's strategy is simple: he always hits until he reaches hard 17 or more, and then he stands. If the dealer has soft 17 (Ace counted as 11), he hits.
If you are dealt an Ace and a 5, the Ace can count as 1 or 11. If you click HIT and get a 5, the Ace automatically counts as 11 because this gives you the best hand. (11 + 5 + 5 = 21.)
Let's say you are dealt a pair of 8's for a total of 16. 16 is unlikely to win as is, and it is likely to bust if you HIT. You might choose to SPLIT the hand into 2 separate parts to achieve better odds.
You can split a pair of Aces, but you may draw only one additional card on each Ace. Also, if you draw a ten-value card on one of your split Aces, the hand is not considered a Blackjack, but is instead treated as a normal 21, and therefore does not collect the Blackjack odds of 3:2.

You should always hit on 8 or less in online blackjack.
