Studying tables of statistics and mathematical equations may sound a bit foreign to someone who is new to the game of online blackjack but in many cases this is exactly what is done by some players who believe that it is a game of pure skill and skill alone. In truth, blackjack whether online or at land based casinos is a game of skill and luck. The skill is used in making the right educated decisions of when to draw more cards and when to stand. But the lucky part of the game is much more obvious from the beginning as players are dealt their first cards and the dealer is also dealt his cards, one face up and one face down. All of the cards dealt in an online blackjack game are from a random number generator so there is no way of knowing what will come out, hence the lucky part of the game!
