How to Beat the Odds in Las Vegas Casinos  June 5, 2016 – 08:26 am

Las Vegas is not a town that was built on winners at the tables. The fact is that most visitors lose at the games of chance offered in the casinos. It may be difficult to beat the odds, but smart gamblers can at least play games in a way that will reduce the house edge to give themselves the best chance to win.

Step 1

Learn the game of poker. Because this is a game in which players take on other players rather than the house, skilled poker players can win in the long run. The casino makes its money by taking a few dollars out of each pot. This is known as the rake.

Step 2

Play higher-denomination slots, if you must play slots. The average payback on Las Vegas slot machines is 94 percent, according to the American Casino Guide. Therefore the house edge is around 6 percent. The payback is set to a lower amount on penny and nickel slots and a higher amount on the dollar slots, so you can reduced the house edge by playing higher-denomination slot machines.

Step 3

Avoid table games with big advantages for the casinos. Any bet on a roulette table, for example, carries at least a 5 percent house edge. Those are odds you cannot beat. Other games with high house edges include Caribbean Stud and Let it Ride.

Step 4

Play blackjack. The house edge on this game is less than 2 percent if you make the best plays and wagers. To play blackjack well you must study the game to learn all the best plays, such as always doubling down on 11 and splitting sevens against a dealer upcard of six. You can buy laminated cards that list the best plays. These can even be found in many casino gift shops.

Step 5

Give craps a try. The game can be confusing at first, but with a house edge of less than 2 percent it is one of the better games for bucking the odds. When playing craps avoid the "inside bets"—that is, those bets located on the inside of the craps felt layout. Stick to pass line or don't pass bets with full odds. The casino will allow you to place an odds bet after a point number is established with the dice that will pay the true odds. For example, if the point number is four you will be paid 2 to 1 on an odds bet that a four is rolled before a seven.


  • Sign up for a player's club card in the casino and present it when buying into a game. This will allow the casino to track how much you wager and could result in comps such as free meals or rooms.

    • The best odds in Vegas is Poker by a long shot because you are not playing against the house, you play other players. If you are not skilled in poker then my next best 3 games in Vegas are 1) Blackjack, 2) Craps and 3) Baccarat. These all have only around a 3% house advantage.
      Games like Roulette, Let it Ride, Carribean Stud and Pai Gow are fun but the rough odds on these games are a 5%-6% house advantage. Middle of the road. You can play these games but don't wager a lot on them.
      The worst games in the casino are slots (of course), the money wheel and Keno. I would avoid these game…
