Understanding The House Edge: Which Casino Games Pay The Best

Casino games are all different. While the house usually wins, some games are definitely better than others for the player. Today we’re ranking these games in terms of “House Edge,” which means how much the casino wins over time.

Generally speaking, if you can play a game with a 1% house edge, you have a MUCH better chance of winning over time than if you’re playing a game with a 5% house edge. The casinos look at these games as “applied mathematics.” Smart players do too.

5 Easy Video Poker Tips That Every Casino Player Should Know

TIP #1: PLAY MAXIMUM COINS

Playing maximum coins gives you the full value for the royal flush --- typically 800-for-1. Playing fewer coins gives you less for that hand --- typically 250-for-1.
 

You won’t get that royal flush very often (usually once every 40,000 to 45,000 hands on average), but you NEVER know when the next one is coming. So playing maximum coins gets you paid well when the royal comes.
