Blackjack: Trying to beat the casinos
No - you didn't read the headline incorrectly. With a little patience and discipline you can
take advantage of an on-line casino's generosity and beat them, quite literally, with their
own money playing blackjack.
Some of the new account incentive offers are very good indeed. Obviously, the casino is
adding the money to new account holders not only to attract new business, but they know
that the average player will gamble it all away on the tables and keep coming back for more
losing much more that the incentive they've given the new player.
The bonus incentives come with strings attached - the casinos are not silly enough to allow you to withdraw your bonus money straight away - you have to play blackjack through a few times first so you might lose it!
Each casino has its own terms though a typical example is that they may require you to wager the bonus amount say 20 times. So if they've given you $100 as a new account bonus you would have to place wagers to the cumulative value of $2000.
By playing a "Basic Blackjack Strategy" you really can walk off with your initial stake intact and a sum on top courtesy of the money the casino have given you.

Now - back to the $100 new account bonus and $2000 wagering requirement example above. You've
deposited $100 and got your free $100 making $200 in your account. Under the terms of the
bonus incentive, you have to wager $2000.
