Under that set playing strategy, even if the player plays perfect strategy (without making any adjustments based on the composition of the remaining shoe), the dealer pays out less than the bets being placed.

(It’s about a 30% chance of a dealer busting)

The dealer/house has the advantage here because the dealer goes last and you don’t know what both of the dealers cards are. You have to try to beat what you think the dealer might have. The dealer just plays according to pre-defined rules for how they must play and those rules are designed to give the house the edge.

The dealer plays _last_ in Blackjack – that is the advantage.

If you go bust when you play, it doesn’t matter if the dealer busts later as well – you lose your money right then and there.

A dealer at a blackjack table has a statistical advantage over the player because of the rules of the game. One key rule is that the player must act before the dealer, which means that the player may bust (go over 21) before the dealer has to make a decision. Additionally, the dealer must follow a specific set of rules for how to play their hand, which limits their options and increases the chances that they will make a favorable play. Finally, if the player busts, the dealer wins regardless of the value of the dealer’s hand, giving the dealer an additional advantage.

The rules give dealers an advantage. When a player busts (goes over 21), the dealer wins, even if the dealer also busts. They may also win in certain other tie scenarios, depending on how much edge the casino wants.
