The best 3 blackjack scenes in movies

11 July 2013 | The Citizen null Not rated yet. How does that rank among good or bad bets? As a newer tables player, which game should I play without the risk of losing large amounts of money: baccarat or blackjack? If youre playing on an American doublezero wheel, roulette has one of the higher house edges among table games at 5.26%. That drops to 2.7% if youre on a Europeanstyle wheel with a single zero. That edge is offset somewhat by roulette moving slower than other table games. You have less exposure to the house edge than in faster games. Still, my preference is to use it as a change of pace game, a place to relax and have a little fun while playing at table minimums. With extended play, the house edge is high enough to grind you down. Blackjack and baccarat have house edges among the lowest in the casino. In baccarat, the edge is 1.06% if you bet on banker, or 1.24% on player. Note that the edge on roulette is about five times as high as the edge on baccarat. In blackjack, an average player faces a house edge of roughly 2% provided you stick to tables where blackjacks pay three-two. A game with six-fi ve payoff s tacks 1.4%onto the edge. If you learn basic strategy, you can knock the house edge down to half a percent or so, a few tenths more or less depending on house rules. Which to choose?

In the real world online blackjack is one of the most exciting and popular of casino table games, but few filmmakers seem to have picked up on that. There have been a few great movie scenes featuring blackjack though, with these three perhaps being the best. Rain Man This 1988 film is probably the single most famous example of a blackjack movie scene, and it also defined the way in which blackjack is usually featured in movies i.e. card counting. Here Charlie (Tom Cruise) takes his autistic brother Raymond to play blackjack at casinos in Vegas, so that he can capitalise on the latters genius maths ability by getting him to count the cards. The scene is one of the quirkiest uses of a casino in a movie, as well as being vital in establishing the character traits of both brothers. 21 Another card counting blackjack movie, this drama from 2008, focuses on the true life story of the MIT Blackjack Team, a group of whizzkid maths geniuses from MIT who make a fortune counting the cards in Vegas led by their charismatic teacher (played by Kevin Spacey). The film is a morality tale about allowing your talents to be used for the wrong reasons, but before all that, there are plenty of entertaining scenes at the blackjack tables. Licence to Kill Bond movies always feature casino scenes, but they dont usually involve blackjack. Classic era Bond had a preference for baccarat (and occasionally roulette), while the new Bond favours Texas Holdem poker. However in the 1989 Timothy Dalton movie Licence to Kill, Bond gives blackjack a shot and ends up winning 250,000 at the casino owned by bad guy drug kingpin Franz Sanchez.
