Card Rooms Casino House Edge Games
 

Casino Stud Poker PlayerEach game inside the casino has an in-built advantage for the house. It is the factor that supplies casinos with their gaming profits. Around 18% of the cash 'drop' in casinos is retained as profit, or 'take'. This means that 18% of the money a casino gets to put down the shute on the gambling tables is pure gaming profit. (averaged out over a period of time)

GGG advises that bets with a house edge greater than 3% should be avoided. Playing with a good strategy in all the casino games mentioned will keep you below this figure. Below we tell you how to do that.

In each Casino game there are several ways to bet and each bet is paid at odds. (i.e. you get back something times your stake money as well as your stake money) The casino edge, or advantage, or vig., is created by making those odds lower that the true odds (the real odds of what you just bet on).
