If you’ve ever played a table game at a casino, whether it be locally or online, knowing what your odds are at winning a table game should be the first thing you need to consider before opening your wallet. Truth is, the house always has the edge no matter what you do, but this edge is determined by odds. Let’s take Blackjack as an example, your odds are determined by the possibilities of getting a winning hand. Knowing that there are 52 cards in a standard deck, we can determine that the house has a 0.8% chance of beating you every time.
I won’t go into too much detail on how that’s determined, let’s leave that to the rocket scientists. Instead, I will save you the effort by giving you all the answers you came here for. The odds of winning at table games vary on the type of game. In the above example, we can see that playing the standard strategy of hitting under 17 and staying on anything above 17, the house will have a 0.8% edge. That’s without any smart, strategic playing, making blackjack one of the best table games with the best odds for you, the gambler.
Another good game is Craps, where the house generally has a 0.6% edge over you which are one of the lowest when it comes to online casinos. Now that you know these odds, you can maybe put more focus on these games to increase your chances of winning. Now, let’s look at the table games with the worst odds…
A standard roulette table (with 37 slots) gives the house a 2.7% edge, whereas a double zero table (38 slots) give the house a 5.6% winning edge, so stick to single zero tables if this is your game. The worst performer that is almost guaranteed to lose you money, is Keno, with a massive 25% edge for the house.
