Great guide! I'm looking forward to trying it.

This link doesn't work anymore though. Does anyone know another that does?

You press shift to kick the door, then instead of running out of your jail cell, use RETURN to port of call.

So, I'm ranking away...betting 2, playing it out...and I get dealt a pair of aces.

That's rare enough, that even I split it. I get a queen (21) and a ten (21) and the dealer busts. (Since they were each 21 on their own, it wouldn't let me swap a card, then try to double down on each.)

I won only 8 gold. Shouldn't that have been 10? They were both "natural" blackjack.

Anyhow, this means the highest theoretic blackjack win, you can possibly do in one hand, is 4,000 gold. That would be, bet 500, dealt a pair, split, get dealt low cards and double down on each (while the dealer busts or at least has a poor hand.)

I seem to recall getting 3,000 once, but never 4,000. Anyone ever get it?

I once split a hand several times ended up with 7 at one time so I guess max winnings really depend on how many D will let you do at once.

Nice guide. Thank you... I have a variation on the hands-odd table. Its simplied, but seems to work well.

blackjack_shortcut_card

Bottom line, you play based on what the dealer shows, and always assume that down card is a ten. If you're below 17 and he's above 7, you may be better off hitting.

USE the double-down! When you have 9,10 or 11 is the best time to use it. Also, if you are out of 10 cards to swap, then swap out a card to make 10 or 11 then HIT.

As far as "Make 11 and double down" goes, there are two variations...

First scenario: you are dealt 12 to 19. You swap a card immediately to make 11.

Second scenario: you are dealt 3 to 10. Hit first, then swap to make 21.

For the second scenario, you miss out on the double-down, but win a LOT more often if you have a lot of cheat cards.

Also of note, with the new inventory system, you can set your "I" inventory panel to your cheat cards before you sit down...and use TAB to open and close it to see which cards you have while you are playing, before starting your swap. That way, you waste less time trying to swap the wrong suit.

I've been getting 40,000 per hour cheating (using this guide's methods) at blackjack lately.

I'm not sure if it has always been this way or not...but currently, it looks like you can only have up to 100 of each card.
