Before you start training there are a few things that you need to know about the options you can set.
Our basic strategy trainer is an integral part of our multiplayer blackjack game, so you have the choice whether to learn and perfect your basic strategy whilst having realistic blackjack fun with other players or to go to a table on your own and play multiple hands.
We recommend that you register with the site in order that all your settings are saved.
When you start the game you will find yourself in the lobby. On the right hand side of your screen you will see the control panel with one of the options being "Trainers". Roll your mouse over this and the options panel will slide into view. Under "Card Counting Trainer" you can now select any or all of the following options.
With this option selected, Blackjack World is converted into your own personal blackjack tutor. All you have to do is follow the simple step by step instructions and you will soon be counting cards like a pro. It will take you through every step with explanations so that you understand the theory and testing you along the way to make sure you are comfortable before progressing to the next level.
Show Hi-Lo Card Values
With this option selected, the individual hi lo card counting values will be displayed underneath every hand. You can switch this on or off independently if you just want to card count without having to remember the card values. Its also a great way to train your brain to automatically recall the values of each card as it is dealt
Show Running Count
With this selected, the running count for the shoe will be displayed on the shoe. You can use this function to test your theories about card counting without having to keep the count yourself.
Show True Count
With this selected, the running count will be converted into the true count and displayed on the shoe. If you have selected to show running count that will also be displayed. The shoe displays an indication of how many decks and how many cards remain in the shoe so you can practise converting the running count to the true count.
With this selected, you will be given a hint as to how many times your base stake you should be betting in relation to the true count.
With this selected, after every hand you will be tested on what the current count is. As a little incentive, you will receive bonus chips if you correctly keep the count.
Test Running Count
When you have Test Me selected you have the choice of testing yourself either on the count for each individual round or you can test yourself on the running count.
Once you have made your selections, roll your mouse off the panel and it will slide away. You can then click on the table of your choice. Please note that if you join a table with other users already playing you will not be able to set the rules and betting limits.
If you run out of chips, leave the table and visit the cashier by standing in front of it (its on the far left of the lobby).
