If you know nothing about how to play the casino table game of blackjack, then it's best to take some lessons. That's because it's difficult to learn the game whilst sat at an actual gaming table. Having said that, some land-based casinos do offer classes for newbies. However, it's a good idea to seek out online blackjack courses, run by competent and knowledgeable players. This is a huge time saver in that all the hard work, apart from the actual learning, is already done for you.
