Novelty Rules
Weird rules have yet to come to the Internet, but they might if competition heats up. Unusual rules on land are often used as promotional gimmicks, so keep an eye out as they are sometimes lucrative. If online blackjack games pay two-to-one instead of three-to-two, it is worth 2.3 percent to the player. This is an edge no card counter gets. If you find curious rules, the place to learn the expected value and basic strategy is Stanford Wong's Basic online blackjack games.

Cash Back
A popular land casino promotion is to rebate a portion of gamblers' action, usually between 0.2 percent and 0.5 percent. The amount is calculated using the total amount of bets, not losses. Table games are excluded, because there is no automatic method of recording the handle, unless it is a cyber-casino. A few online places offer it for "table" games. This can preserve a wee bit more of the bonus during qualifying play, and is also potentially profitable in itself. Exploiting cash back is generally how professional video online poker games players get over on land. The fraction of a percent kicked back may be enough to give online blackjack games or video online poker games a positive expected value.
