Blackjack vs. Roulette -
The Most Profitable Online Betting Games

People indulge in online betting for various reasons. Some play for the thrill of the game, while others play to earn money. Yet others play to combine both these factors. Regardless of the reason, winning an online betting game is an exciting feeling- one that we would all like to enjoy more often.

Different casino games have a different likelihood of success, and we are here to tell you about the most profitable games out there!

There are two important phrases to keep in mind while comparing online betting games. The first is House Edge. This refers to the percentage of money the house or establishment will retain per game. For example, a house edge of 4% means that for every 100 Euros that a casino makes from game X, they will definitely retain at least 4 Euros. The second important phrase is Return to Player (RTP). This percentage shows the frequency with which a user will win a substantial cash price on that game.

Let us now take a closer look at some of the most profitable online betting games.
1. Blackjack
Blackjack is one of the most popular casino card games- partially due to its profitability. Both amatuer and professional gamblers enjoy playing it. It is relatively easy to learn, and has one of the lowest House Edges. If played carefully the House Edge can be as low as 0.5%. In the hands of the most erratic players the edge can increase upto 2%, which is still lower than most of the other games available.
2. Texas Hold’em
This is another relatively straightforward betting game. It is easy to understand, and with a strong strategy it can easily win you quite a bit of money. Texas Hold’em is one of the most widely available games, and it has an RTP of 97.96%- almost impossible to not win across a few attempts!
3. Live Roulette
Live Roulette is a real time betting game with a RTP of 97.3%. It involves a live dealer, real time betting, and chat features which allow players to talk to each other during the game. Apart from it’s high profitability, Live Roulette is also extremely popular because of its similarity to traditional casino games.
4. Baccarat
Baccarat is one of the lesser known online betting games. Amateur players usually do not approach it. However, it’s profitability might make it a worthy learning endeavour. Baccarat has a House Edge of 1.24%. This means that an individual’s return on investment is quite high! That being said, the house edge will be exponentially higher if a player does not understand the nuances of the game, and just like any other betting game Baccarat should only be attempted if one is familiar with it.
What About Slots?
Slot based games represent some of the most popular online betting games. They are both enjoyable and easy to play; and they do not require large investments to be made. However, slots are not very profitable. They have high House Edges- above 5% in most cases. One of the only ways of hitting it big in Slots is by winning the Jackpot, which in itself is a rare occurrence.

If your online betting goal is to win some big money, it might be better to forgo the slots, and try some of these other games instead.
