It’s time for us here at to suggest another online casino tip which we hope may help new casino games players enjoy their online casino experience. This month we are going to look at the statistical odds of winning, particularly relating to two of the most popular traditional casino games, namely roulette and blackjack. First let’s look at blackjack, which is the easiest of these two casino games to analyse. The pay-out for blackjack is always even money, which should mean that the odds of winning are close to 50/50 but that is entirely dependent on the choices the player makes during the game. The choice of when to take another card is paramount in the casino game of blackjack, and successful blackjack players will always be aware of the odds of drawing a card that will enhance their hand. We have examined the odds of a particular card being drawn many times, but there are two important things to remember when playing blackjack. First that 30% of the cards in the deck have a value of 10 and second that the dealer must draw a card on 16 so anything above a 5 will bust the hand, which is 60% of the cards. Now we come to roulette, which on the face of it should be easy because the pay-out on a particular number or group of numbers is directly related to the odds of that number coming up. The problem lies in the fact that most people playing the casino game of roulette place multiple bets on each spin. Let’s take a very simple multiple bet as an example. A bet on a row at 11/1 backed up by an even money bet on black. This is a common hedging bet but even if both are winners the pay-out is reduced to 6/1 and if it is just the black that wins you have actually won nothing. Our biggest online casino tip when playing roulette is to be very careful that your multiple bets do not reduce the odds of getting a reasonable pay-out on a win to such an extent that your chances of winning any money are almost negligible.
