Blackjack is the only green table game where the odds of the dealer and the player are nearly equal, in both traditional gambling halls and online casinos.
The probability is calculated according to the number of decks put into play. Fewer decks can be said to benefit the player. There is a substantial difference between traditional casinos and online casinos: in the former the cards used are set aside until the decks are changed; in the latter, after each hand, all the cards are reshuffled.
