Split in Blackjack, aces and Eights, but never two picture cards or tens. Also, remember that insurance is detrimental to you. So never use Insurance, because the math is just against you. Its best to forget that the option of insurance exists at all. All places at the Blackjack table are the same, and the cards do not favor a particular one. Only superstitious players think that. Similarly, there is no hot or cold table or Dealer. Besides, you shouldnt believe in anything like luck or bad luck. Do not play continuously, but take breaks to rest. Set a certain budget for your blackjack australia game from the outset and always set a maximum of 5% of it. So you have much longer of the game. If you take all these tips, then you will go much more often than a winner from the Blackjack table.
