6 Winning Tips To Keep In Mind At The Casino

Why do we hit the casino? To have fun, sure, but mostly — to win! That’s why it’s important to go in with a clear mind and a solid strategy. Fortunately, these five casino tips can help you do just that.

  1. Scope out your dealers. Before you sit down at a table, assess the the entire situation — including the dealer’s abilities. We’re not saying they’re not professionals, but just like the rest of us they can get a bit tired and sloppy at times. For example, try to spot a dealer that accidentally flashes the face-down card in blackjack. If you’re lucky enough to find one, you can gain a 6-9% advantage over the house.
  2. Never lose focus. Don’t let those flashing lights, loud music and attractive waitstaff fool you! Keep your drinking to a minimum and your eyes on the prize. That includes checking payouts before committing to a bet!
  3. Skip the slots. Sure, they’re flashy and fun, but they’re not likely to help you hit it big. Experts say “the average slot machine is probably two, three times more costly to players than the table games,” so why waste the money? Head to the tables for your best odds, and go big or go home!
  4. Avoid the glitz and glam. Casinos trend to put the lowest paying games amidst the most action. That way, they can lure you in the flashing lights and excitement, but not actually have to let you win. Sneaky right? The important lesson here is, don’t walk into the light!
  5. Stay way from Keno. This popular game lotto-like game of chance can be a real money pit for players. It carries the absolute worst odds of any casino game. In fact, the odds of matching all 20 numbers on a 20-slot ticket are about 1 in 3.5 quintillion — yes, you read that right!
  6. Don’t forget your watch. Casino owners want you to get lost in the excitement, playing into all hours of the night. For that reason, you’ll rarely find clocks or windows on the casino floor. Do yourself a favor and wear a watch so you can keep track of time and pace yourself.

3 Common Roulette Myths Busted

If you’re ever stepped foot in a casino, there’s a good chance you’ve found yourself standing around a roulette table crossing your fingers for your numbers to hit! Like most popular casino games, the myths revolving around roulette certainly abound. That’s why we’re here to bust some of the most common myths right now.

Myth #1: Every roulette wheel is exactly the same.
Half true. While all American wheels are the same, and all European wheels are the same, the two types differ from each other slightly. European wheels have only 37 slots, while American wheels have 38. This changes that house odds from 2.70% to 5.25% respectively.

Myth #2: Numbers or colors that have hit previously have an effect on future outcomes.
False! No matter what has been played before, the odds of each individual spin are always exactly the same. The odds of hitting red or black are always 50/50, and the chances of hitting and particular number are always 1 in 38.

Myth #3: A good mathematician can beat the roulette odds.
Unlike in blackjack, there’s no way to predict which numbers will hit in roulette. This is because, as we said, each spin is completely independent of the previous, as well as the next.

Roulette is completely left to chance with no strategy required, which is what makes it so appealing to novice gamblers. If you’re looking for a game that every one of your guests can enjoy equally, roulette is definitely the entertainment option for you!

Casino Game Odds – The Best & Worst

Are you planning to hit the casino over the long holiday weekend? If so, we’re sure you’ll want to know which games to bet big on and which to skip altogether. Here are a few of casino games that we found to have the best odds, and those that have historically had the worst.

These casino games offer the best odds for winning big:

  • Roulette – The ultimate game of chance — with (nearly) 50/50 odds! While betting on specific numbers is a little trickier, sticking to the simple “red or black” betting strategy gives the player almost a 50/50 shot at beating the house.
  • Blackjack – This game is up there on the list thanks to its simplicity: Easy-to-follow rules and only one opponent, the dealer. While mastering counting cards can be a beneficial, but sneaky strategy, even without this skill the odds of winning are still more than 50%.
  • Craps – Placing a single bet in craps will not yield such high odds, but layering your bets will. A player has the option to place up to 10 different bets on the same number, giving them more opportunities to win.

With these casino games, you’re better off betting small, or not at all:

  • Slot Machines – While they may be flashy and fun, the odds of hitting the jackpot on your favorite slot machine are slim. If you’re dead set on playing slots, your best odds are betting the max on the most expensive slots on the casino floor. The lower the minimum bet required, the worse the odds of winning become.
  • Keno – It has been said that for every one game a player wins in Keno, they’ll lose more than two after. This has historically been the game with the absolute worst odds for the player and the best odds for the dealer!

Now that you know which casino games to gamble on and which to leave alone, how about trying your luck at your own casino party before hitting the big leagues? At Casinos by M&M we offer a wide variety of casino games with authentic casino-grade tables to match!
