Best and Worst Blackjack Hands

What’s The Best Blackjack Starting Cards?

Everybody’s ideal hand in blackjack is 21 right away. After all, being dealt 21 on your first two cards automatically wins you the hand (provided the dealer doesn’t have blackjack) and nets you either a 3:2 or 6:5 payout. So if you bet $10 under 3:2 payout rules, you’d collect a £15 profit.

Unfortunately, we can’t rely on being dealt a natural blackjack too often. In a standard 6-deck game, you only have a 4.75% chance of being dealt a natural. That said, you’ll be dealing with a large variety of hands while trying to improve your score and beat the dealer. And here’s a look at the best and worst among the bunch.


 

Best Starting Hands

Two Aces – Why not start off with the chance to have two great hands in one round!? Split this one every time because you have an excellent opportunity to win both hands.

11 – The great thing about being dealt an 11 is that you’re just one 10-value card away from hitting 21. And even if you don’t get a 10-value card, 7, 8 or 9 still leave you in pretty good position. When your cards are 11, it’s recommended that you double down every time, except for when the dealer has an ace.

10 – This is another hand where you double down in most situations, save for when the dealer has a 10 or an ace. Speaking of the latter, if you’re lucky enough to get an ace, you will hit 21.


 

Worst Starting Hands

16 – The problem with 16 is that the dealer is supposed to hit until they at least reach 17. Of course, the dealer will bust out trying to do this sometimes, but more often they won’t. What’s worse is that when you hit to try and get a better score, you stand a good chance of busting out.

15 – This is yet another hand that puts you in a poor position to win because your score isn’t very high, yet you might bust out by hitting. For this reason, it’s definitely a good idea to grab a blackjack strategy chart and make the correct moves so you avoid being put in these situations.

Christmas Party New Years Eve

Christmas Party Fun Casino Hire

December 2014 weekends are very popular every year – so please plan in advance and book your dates with us as soon as possible.

Time is fast approaching the festive season and you may be wondering about the best way to ensure your party is a success. One absolutely sure way to entertain and impress your guests is a fun casino.

Gone are the days when a dinner/dance would hit the spot. Today’s revellers expect a bit more for their Christmas reward. Of course they’ll probably enjoy a dance or two after their dinner but if you have hired an Aces Fun Casino we’ll be giving your band or DJ a run for their money!

Whether your guests will be eating before the gaming tables open or we start the entertainment – we’ll get everyone involved by handing them fun money. This will encourage them to approach the gaming tables and exchange their note for chips. Will they know how to play? Maybe not but our professional croupiers will explain all – before and during play. Our staff  are chosen, not just for their expertise but for their ability to entertain and amuse. Gambling is FUN and Aces put the fun into fun casinos.

There is, however, a limit to the number of events we can cover in December so if you are planning on booking a casino for your party – sooner is safer than later! Call June on Free Phone 0800 107 7001 or email your enquiry to june@acesfuncasinos.co.uk

A Night at the Races

Horse Racing

#RaceNightFun at Cleeve West Town FC

Saturday night at #CleeveWestTownFC proved to be another successful fund raiser for the club. As sponsors for their football strip, Aces Race Nights was delighted to be there and the club’s thanks to #Thefootiefactory who sponsored the event. In spite of appalling weather there was a good turn-out of loyal supporters not least being the ladies footie team who all turned up with very drinkable raffle prizes – and managed somehow to win most of them. Well done girls – and well done for winning the £90.00 auction prize too! We look forward to your next big #charityevent, the #casinonight in April. Let’s hope the rain has stopped by then.

James Bond Party Hire

After a brilliant night of horse, dog, camel and #wackyracing with Stihl sales and marketing we are now looking forward to a busy Saturday night of  #casinofun in Bristol and Bath. Our #mobilefuncasinos are raring to go – two very different occasions await us – a fortieth birthday party and a charity event.

The birthday party is going to be a very glamorous affair, #CasinoRoyale and #Bond look-a-likes are ‘on the cards’. We’ll bring our life-sized Bond standees to help create the atmosphere plus of course our customised Bond fun money to give to guests.

The #charityevent, raising money for a local hospice is sure to do well. Each guest will be invited to buy the fun money and exchange it for chips at the gaming tables. The lucky winner will be awarded a handsome prize and all the money raised will go to a very worthy cause. With roulette, blackjack and poker on the go we are sure our guests will have a fun and exciting time and in one event, raise a nice lot of money for their favourite charity.

Fun Casino at your Wedding?

#funcasinohire is fast becoming a favourite for weddings and spring is probably the busiest time to get hitched. Having a pain-free flutter at the gaming tables is certainly a popular choice. What better ice-breaker than a laugh and joke at the gaming tables? Having ‘something to do’ other than stand around holding your glass and chatting to a distant relative or a stranger ‘on the groom’s side’ takes the stress out of the situation. At the same time, even though no money changes hands, it’s still an exciting activity and a bit less tiring than a bop on the dance floor! #Acesfuncasinos are running a #springwedding promotion in which we’ll provide three staffed gaming tables – roulette, blackjack and poker – for the price of two. We’ll even throw in a bottle of bubbly for the casino winner! Call us on our freephone number 0800 107 7001 quoting #weddingpromotion.

Prom Night Entertainment -#funcasinohire

If you’ve been given the daunting task of organising your 6th form prom, let us take away some of that stress by suggesting one of the most popular forms of entertainment – a fun casino. With many years of experience – and if you look in the galleries section of our website #www.acesfunentertainment.co.uk or even our facebook page #www.facebook.co.uk/Acesfuncasinos you’ll see some of the many events we’ve attended for schools and colleges all over the south west. Choose from the most popular casino games – roulette, blackjack, three or five card poker, Texas Hold ‘em and more. We’ll bring professional equipment and staff, well versed in the art of entertaining. We can promise you we’ll be more than a match for your DJ or band because who can resist a flutter? Our prices are very competitive and we’ll even provide a prize for the highest roller at the end of the night.  If you’d like to talk it through just call June on our freephone number 0800 107 7001.

#casinopartyNYE

DSCF9234

With Christmas all over bar the shouting (and still a bit of eating and drinking to endure no doubt) we look forward to one of our busiest nights of the year for #funcasinos.

All over the southwest, #Acesfuncasinos will be helping to create the right atmosphere for #NYEparties. It’s always a great night, with people enjoying the last night of the year and casino tables are always in high demand. What makes the casino night so special perhaps is the thought of trying your luck – and whether ‘lady luck’ will be smiling on you, not just on the last night of the year but hopefully on into 2014. Here’s wishing all our friends; past present and future customers a very Happy – and Lucky – New Year.

That said, the #Celticmanor party-goer above may have been pushing his luck just a little too far!
