Which Casino Games Have the Best Odds?

The fact of the matter is, in the real world, only a small percentage of casino regulars are actually high-rolling gamblers. Most of us average folks play casino games within our budget, and nothing is wrong with preparing how much you intend to spend ahead of time. Sometimes playing games like poker, baccarat, or even just playing a slot game can be the best part of the casino experience, and losing money is an inevitable part of the adventure of gambling. You know the old saying, you win some and you lose some? However, there are a plethora of ways to leave the casino with more money than you went in with, and becoming more well-informed about the games themselves is the best way to improve your odds of winnings. Some games are easier to win than others! You'll want to research your games before sitting down and giving them a go.


Blackjack is a classic card game, and the odds of winning this game are a favorable 49%. However, skill plays a part in determining whether or not you win. You play against the dealer, and multiple players can participate in a game of blackjack at one time. However, you aren't playing against other players - everyone is playing against the dealer. The basics of blackjack are easy enough for everyone to pick up.


Players have a 50% chance of winning at Craps. This is a table game played with a pair of dice. The shooter rolls the dice and the players need to make wagers on the result of each roll. On the first roll, the player can win on a seven or an eleven. If the shooter rolls another number, that number is now the 'point' and the shooter needs to match the 'point' before they roll a seven to win. There are several different bets you can make if you aren't the shooter, like whether the shooter will win or lose, or will the shooter hit another number before he rolls a seven.


Roulette offers 50% winning odds. The game is played using a wheel with 38 different numbers on it, and the numbers are 1-36, which are either black or red or the number 0, which is green. The croupier spins the wheel and the ball falls on one of the numbers. You bet by guessing whether the ball will fall on a red or black piece. You can also increase your payout (but also lower your odds) by betting on specific number ranges.

Big Six Wheel/ Wheel of Fortune has low winning odds of only 26%-39% and this game requires pretty much no skill. Slot machines, while being the simplest to play at times, also have low odds. The odds of winning a slot game are around 1 in 49,836,032. The difference with slots is most of the odds vary per machine, so if you read up on your machine before playing, and check the RTP (return to player percentage) you'll have a better idea of whether or not a slot machine is worth it. With slots, the more you spend, the higher your odds of winning are.

Poker is the last game I'm going to discuss in this article, and your poker odds vary because skill plays a huge part in this game. To some, having more control over whether you win or not is the appeal of the game in itself. While luck is still a factor, how you play your cards influences the overall outcome. My advice is to make sure your chosen table meets your budget and skill level.
