In this article, we will continue talking about dealer's mistakes raised in our previous publications on Casinoz. We'll talk about where, when, and under what circumstances dealers make more mistakes. This will help you find the best spot for the game in any casino.

How can I increase the chances of dealer's mistakes?

Try to play at the beginning or end of the dealer's shift. In the first case, they still have to tune into the working routine and give up personal problems, in the second – they are tired, which increases the chances of mistakes.

Choice of cards

Many casino visitors prefer to play with new decks. It is reasonable mostly for plastic cards. When new, they are very slippery, and many novice dealers manage them poorly.

You have no reason to ask to change the deck with cardboard cards, where they have been for too long. It increases the chances of the dealer's mistakes because it makes him focus on the deal.

Forcing the dealer

If there is no one else but you and the dealer at the table, try to raise the pace, but make sure it does not negatively impact your own game's quality.

Do not forget that dealers are humans, and such factors as stuffy indoors, high atmospheric pressure, magnetic storms, and so on, affect their health.

Do not let the dealer count in a comfortable environment.

Distract him with questions on subjects that make him calculate, do math in his head, and just think. For example, it may be a question about any large payment by the "uncomfortable" bet. Let him calculate anything but the amount of your win. But do not overdo it. If you are distracting the dealer too obviously, it will cause suspicion.

To make the dealer subconsciously perceive your bet not so serious, bet chips of different values and place the smallest on top. Also, this will make them do more mental calculations.

Interfere in calculations

In blackjack, you can try a trick with an approving smile at an equal score on your and the dealer's hands, or even when your's are one point lower. The idea is that the dealer thinks you won when he sees your approving reaction. You have the best chances with four or more cards on the box.

If you see the dealer is weak in counting, you can start helping him.

Count correctly, but when there is no one next to you, try to call a score in your favor. Once this trick is revealed (most often, it happens at the first or second attempt), apologize and give it up.

If you have 3 or more cards and 12 on your box, jokingly ask the dealer about a 10. Actually dealing a10, he may subconsciously decide you hit 21. Even if the mistake comes out, it's gonna look like you've been sincerely mistaken. Similarly, you can ask for any card that scores you 22, hoping the dealer mistakes and considers them for 21.

Incredibly, but sometimes croupiers pay losing combinations just because a player acts like a winner: cries of joy, throws up his hands, and the like. Never underestimate the impact of your behavior on the dealer.

Other methods

Some players do not hesitate to bring up the unpleasant smell (garlic or tobacco), to make the dealer, especially if it's a girl, turn away a little faster or get done with your box and move on to other players. It's up to you how reasonable it is.

If you see that the dealer for some reason hasn't not put a good card in the deck and left it outside the shoe, don't hurry to remind them about it.

It has happened when the dealer dealt cards to the end not thinking where the high one was. It's obvious what kind of benefit you can get from this if you count cards.

If you notice the dealer made a mistake paying by the uncomfortable bet, stick to this amount in the future. He might repeat it again and again. It works in many games, including blackjack, poker, and even roulette. The author of these lines saw a roulette dealer who hit the same number 3 times in a row and incorrectly paid the bet all the time.


Finally, we should remind you that we do not encourage using such tricks in the articles published on Casinoz. Moreover, we warn you that if you're provoking dealer's mistakes too hard, after a while, your reputation in the casino will be irrevocably tarnished. From now on, you will have to play with the most experienced dealers and under the supervision of the inspector and pit boss.

You can use dealers' mistakes, but it should be just a part of your overall strategy, not a goal.

You better stick to the following concepts of the advantage game:
