Low Limit Blackjack

Low limit blackjack is popular with new and experienced players alike. New players get to practice the game and different strategies without risking a lot of money if mistakes are made; experienced players love the additional time they get to play for the same bankroll as higher stake games.

Popularity

In Vegas and other gambling hubs, low limit online blackjack is a rarity. Only a limited number of casinos offer games with table limits of below $5.00 and such games are only available on a small number of tables. People who do manage to find a table often have to wait a while--queues even form on occasion. This shows how popular low limit games are. Online casinos obviously have the advantage over their land-based competitors in this sense. A number of online casinos offer limits from ¢50 or 50p.

Online Casinos

Land-based casinos calculate their profits per square foot of floor-space and try to extract the maximum profits from the finite space they have. Online casinos are different because they generally do not have this problem; they can offer low limit tables alongside higher limit tables. Live dealer games are the only exception to this rule. Casino overheads in these games are substantially higher than standard RNG games, which means table limits will usually be higher. Minimum bets around the $/£5.00 mark are to be expected.

Free Play Games

In addition to low limit games, free play games are also floating around online. It is therefore often unnecessary to deposit any cash at all to play games online. This can be a huge advantage to new players who wish to learn the rules of the game without risking their own money. Naturally, there comes a time when people want the thrill of winning real money, so then they will have to hand over some cash.

After getting a lot of free play practice, these players tend to feel prepared and confident with the game by the time they play for real money.
