How can I find out what my odds of winning are in blackjack and what are some of the ways you can use to get the edge in blackjack?

There are countless ways in which you can optimize your winning percentages, but I think that it may take some time and study on your part. I don't think that there is a system that someone can just hand to you and you immediately start profiting from it. I think you get your edge from actual play time and practice.

Do you mean the odds per hand, or your general odds against the house? Even in blackjack, in the whole game the house has the edge over you.

Some of the ways to get an edge are to practice playing until you know the maths off by heart or learn to count cards, although casinos don't like the second one very much.

I've heard that casinos don't like people counting cards. Is there any other way of increasing your edge without doing anything that's frowned upon?

Love this quote! If you do anything that gives you an edge over the casino they not only don't like you they will hunt you down and kick you out!

You can get an edge in blackjack as follows:

1. Card Counting
2. Card sequencing
3. Hole carding
4. Shuffle tracking
5. Ace sequencing

None of these are easy but they are doable. Love to hear of others.

Not all of these are available at all times. Some of these are like unicorns, difficult to find but very friendly when you do find one.

Have a betting strategy in place
As with most casino games, you should always have a betting strategy in place to make sure that you increase the chances of leaving the table with more money. Betting systems such as martingale and passwords are used by many players. These betting systems are based on mathematical progressions so will be able to find a regularity and you will start winning more often.
