Forget about betting red and black at the same time and breaking even, the casinos have put in the green “0” and “00” to give themselves a 5.25% edge in this game. If you are going to play roulette try and find a game with a single “0” to reduce the house odds.
The easiest games to play in a casino that requires no real knowledge are the slot machines but these one-armed bandits keep anywhere between 3%-25% depending on the machine and the casino you play in. Slot machine players that have been losing money on a particular machine often feel that the slot machine is “due” to hit, there is no truth to this as the slot machines are controlled by a random number generator that figures out the payoff over the course of several thousands of spins. Quite simply, there is no way of knowing if or when a machine is “due”. If you must play the one arm bandits be sure to follow the advice given above regarding players cards.
Find a Jacks or better machine that pays 9 coins for a full house and 6 coins for a flush and the odds will be between 0% to 5% in favor of the house, Video Poker is far better than slot machines, with perfect play and comps factored in you could actually be ahead of the casino at the end of the day.
Avoid the high odds bets on the table. Play only the line bets: pass, don’t pass, come and don’t come bets and the odds will be around 1.4% in favor of the casino. Some casinos offer a game called crapless craps, be forewarned that although it appears to be a more favorable game for the player, this game actually increases the house odds.
Of each dollar wagered the casino keeps 30%. Keep in mind when playing, that keno is much like a lottery. To date 20 out of 20 numbers has never been won in any Casino (to the best of our knowledge).
Playing basic strategy will put the house edge at 0%-3%. Blackjack is by far the most popular game played in the casinos.
Try to play only “single deck” blackjack.
The lastest trend of many casinos (mostly Vegas strip casinos) is to offer 6 to 5 payouts on blackjack in many of the single deck games, again avoid this game as it increases the house advantage by a full percentage point.
Following these basic strategy rules will give the player the best advantage
