Beneficial Bets in Casino Games
In the previous article, we talked about some beneficial bets. Today, we’ll consider beneficial bets in casino craps, baccarat, blackjack and video poker
“Pass” and “Don't pass” bets in dice
As you may already know from one of the previous articles, dice offers a lot of unbeneficial bets with a high casino edge. Nevertheless, craps is one of the most poker-friendly casino games - under the condition that you are making the right bets.
If you make “Pass” and “Don't pass” bets, the casino edge won’t exceed 1.4% If you are combining those bets with unbeneficial conditions (for example, laying odds), the house edge will be even lower.
Besides “Pass” and “Don't pass” bets, there are other bets that are pretty good for the player. For example, bets on 6 and 8 will decrease the house edge down to 1.52%.
Video poker machines
There is a significant difference between slots and video poker machines. When playing slots, the only thing you can count on is God’s help and luck, while the final result in video poker directly depends on the decisions you make. First of all, you need to choose a slot with a high payout rate – such as 9/6 Jacks and Better – and follow the optimal strategy. There are some slots whose payout rates exceed 100%. This means that the player has the opportunity to make a bet with a positive mathematical expectation. When playing online slots, make sure that you have chosen the profitable game with generous bonuses in order to decrease the casino edge even more.
Baccarat: Avoiding Bets on Tie
Baccarat is a beneficial and rather profitable casino game for the player – until you make a stupid bet on egalite (tie). If you make a bet on banco, the casino edge is 1.06%. If you make a bet on player, the casino edge is a little bit higher – 1.24%. Compared to most casino games, baccarat is a really player-beneficial game.
Basic blackjack strategy
Blackjack is a good and beneficial game – even if you are not counting cards, which is impossible to do at online casinos. If you are following the basic blackjack strategy, you decrease the casino edge down to 1% -which is pretty low compared to other casino games. In order to gain such a low casino edge, follow the basic strategy religiously and never rely on your intuition only.
These are some of the best and most beneficial casino bets that are out there. If you stick to those bets, your pocket will never be empty and you will increase your chances to leave the casino with pretty large winnings.
