What are your odds at winning casino games? It’s extremely difficult for players to go home with winnings.
All casino games have a house advantage, which means players will lose money in the long run. A 1% house advantage means the casino will make 1% profit over time. So, you are better off playing games with a lower house advantage.
These are the house advantages of popular casino games. (with proper strategy)
Slots — 5% to 10%
Roulette (double zero) — 5.26%
Roulette (single zero) — 2.70%
Video Poker — 0.5% to 3%
Craps (pass/come bets only) — 1.41%
Blackjack — 0.5% (six decks)
Remember: You may be able to win a few big pots, but you will almost always lose money in the long run. So don’t quit your day job just yet!
