Which Online Casino Games Have the Best Odds?

You can improve your odds at online casinos or anywhere for that matter by your game selection.

Some online casino games have better odds than others (sometimes by a factor of 1000%), so if you choose right and play certain games such as Black Jack to a infallible strategy (see our article on Black Jack Strategy ) you will improve your overall odds.
The information tabulated below gives an EXAMPLE of the  house edge you will typically experience when playing at a UK online casino. The exact figure will depend on the casino, so always refer to the the overall Payout % (ensure first that they use a third party auditor like T S T Testing).
Use this information in a relative sense, to work out which casino games have a higher payout percentages compared to other and therefore a lower house edge than others.
What is the house edge? If a casino game has a dealer edge of 1%, ON AVERAGE, for every $10 bet you put down on the game, you will lose 10c. Remember that this is spread over multiple players and multiple bets- some punters will win alot more than than and some lose alot more than that. But generally speaking, the higher the odds, the lower the edge. Also don´t forget that casino games with higher odds (such as Black Jack) do not often have the big Jackpots. Casino games with a bigger house edge such as online slot machines, are riskier, but are the only way of going for the big progressive jackpots that can run into the millions. The same as the odds at the lottery, but people still play just in case the scoop the big one!
