You’re a gambler on a mission. What sorts of games can you win at?
Well, that depends on the games you play. Your odds of winning depend on your skill, how many hands you play, and how long you play a particular game before choosing another. Keno, for example, has a high house advantage, taking in roughly 25%. Additional gambling stat examples include Big 6 Wheel at up to 24% and Roulette at 5.6%.
Games such as blackjack, baccarat and craps, offer you the greatest opportunities to win money. If you’re in to winning more frequently and losing less often, start with these games. Add to your knowledge of blackjack, baccarat or craps your growing skills of the game, including strategy techniques and betting. With these skills, the winning will come naturally and more frequently, preparing you for the next step.
Realizing that the house has odds of winning in any game you play will keep you humble when you lose. Losing money is a part of the game as is winning. Starting with the higher odds games such as the ones above—at least for you—will help you gain the confidence and experience you need to one day tackle games like Keno, where the opportunities for success wane unless you’ve had some experience with the easier stuff.
Remember, winning any game is as much about knowing the rules as practicing the play. Whatever games you decide to play, however, know that the odds continue in your favor the more you play the game.
