Never take Insurance when playing Blackjack

Don’t take insurance

An Insurance when playing Blackjack is something that you can use if the dealer is showing an Ace, the reason is to protect your bet just in case the dealer manage to hit blackjack.  This insurance is basically a side bet, and you are usually paid at odds of 3:2 if the dealer does manage to hit blackjack.

This can seem to be a good idea at first, but it’s not, all experienced blackjack players will avoid an insurance completely. The reason is that over the long term, you’ll end up losing more than you actually win. So, you might occasionally lose some money when the dealer hits blackjack, but not ever taking insurance will be worth it in the long term.
