online casino basic strategy

For a given set of blackjack rules, there is only one best action to take for each possible hand a player may get versus each possible upcard a dealer may have.  This set of "best actions" is know as the Basic Strategy.  The basic strategies provided here have been created by programming the rules for each casino into advanced computer software and then running over 1000 million hands to see which is the best option for each situation.  To become a master player, you must first learn this basic strategy for your casino.  Because the rules for each casino are different, a different basic strategy must be used for each one.  Below is the suggested basic strategy for the Sands of the Caribbean Casino.
