Hit Me: Basic Vegas Strip Black Jack Strategy on When to Hit

Looking for an easy way to memorize when to hit when playing online or in house Vegas Strip Blackjack? Look no further than below:

  • Hit if you have anything lower than 8 regardless of what the dealer has.
  • Hit on 9’s and double down if the dealer has a 3, 4 or 5.
  • Hit on 12 unless the dealer has a 4, 5 or 6. If dealer has these three cards, then stand as there is a good chance dealer will hit twice and bust.
  • Hit on 13-16 unless the dealer has a 2,3,4,5 or 6. Look to above for reasoning why.
  • Hit on ace and two, ace and three, ace and four, ace and five and ace and six. If the dealer has a 3,4,5,6, double down.
  • Hit on two fours, two threes and two twos. Split if the dealer has a 3,4,5 or 6.
