About US

How we got here?

I’ve been carrying the idea to build this website since 2007, but lucking any knowledge in programming – building a successful website always seemed like Mission Impossible. In 2015 I’ve met Mark, who’s done exactly the same way with SlotMachinesOnline.co. The only difference is that his passion, as you probably guessed, is slot machines, while for me it’s all about Blackjack.

We are both advantage players – looking for all possible ways to maximize our odds and get an edge over the casino. And that’s the goal of our site – to assist blackjack fans all around the globe, online and offline, to get the best winning odds.

Why we are here?

There are three main ways to maximize your profit. First, choosing games with the best winnings odds. Second, playing it correctly in terms of strategy. Last, taking full advantage of favorable casino bonuses and perks.

It sounds obvious, but in reality less than 1% of players execute two of them, not to mention all three. In fact, 95% of players don’t even do a single one (we’ve done some research which you can find here). And the funniest thing is that it’s really not that hard. You don’t need to have a degree in Math or some extraordinary analytical skills. Just some passion to understand and basic math will do.

And that’s what brought us together – to show blackjack players, new or advanced, how to increase their odds while playing blackjack online, and to do that in a clear and simple manner.

What makes us special?

They say 1+1 should be more than 2, and that’s exactly what happened here. In order to maximize the odds you need to understand both, the game and the casino.

I’ve been playing blackjack since I remember myself. Mark, with his super high analytical skills, has been working and reviewing online casinos for over a decade. Together, we can cover all the aspects of advantage play.

Last, the idea here is not just to show you the best games or the best blackjack bonuses (although we do that as well), but to show you how to analyze things yourself. So next time when you visit your local casino or some online blackjack site, you could see things for yourself and hopefully end up with more $ in your pocket.
