Hello,
I´m new playing blackjack, is there any diference of playing in one house or two houses? Why do some casino make play at least in 2 houses, does it change houseedge? Does it change player´s edge?

Thanks for all

Hello, Robert, and welcome to the forum.

I'm not sure I understand you saying "houses". It's not a term usually associated with Blackjack. (Perhaps someone else does, and will enlighten me.) Can you ask your question a different way?
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

If you're asking why some casinos require you to pay twice the table minimum in order to play in two places, the answer is that it's because you're theoretically removing another player's chance to play and that player may have wished to play for higher stakes than you.

Does the houseedge or players edge changes with playing in one box or two or more boxes?

At the hundred dollar table there is no need to play 200 per to play two circles (two "houses" "boxes"), they figure you've earned that right by being at the black chip table.

But if you're playing 100 min or 100 x 2 min then must be prepared to jump the bet by enough times X to take advantage of any superior card flow/count whatever you want to call it. Which is why I never understand these guys who show up at the black chip table with a measly 500 or 1000 or so, thinking this is where they belong.

If you take up two circles versus two different players taking up one circle each nothing changes as far as house edge that's all set based on the rules of the table. Also how deep they deal into the deck is beneficial if you are tracking the cards.

Essentially no change in house edge. There may be very rare instances when seeing more other cards might change your strategy, but basically no change in house edge for all practical purposes.

I doubt this is what you are asking about, but if you have been counting cards and have identified that the remaining cards favor the player then betting a second hand will be advantageous to you, especially if you are not the only player at the table.

Playing two hands simultaneously is theoretically equivalent to playing two successive hands.
Practically, it makes a difference only if you are counting cards.

Ditto.

Unless you’re counting and changing your strategy accordingly, the edge doesn’t change.

However, the variance will change. But it will be the same whether you play 2hand at once against 50 dealer hands, or 1 hand at a time for 100 hands.

Wouldn’t your wins and losses tend to be more correlated playing multiple hands at once ?

Imagine playing 5 hands at once vs the same dealer up card, vs playing 5 successive hands vs 5 different dealer hands.
