The smallest house edge in all casino games is in Blackjack.You step into a crowded casino on a Friday night with $200 burning a hole in your pocket.

You want to gamble, though you want to play the games that have the lowest casino edge.

Where should you go?

If you want to increase your chances of winning, there are some games that you should play, and some games that you should avoid at all costs.

Blackjack gives players the best odds of winning, especially if you are familiar with the rules and strategy (when to split, when to buy insurance, when to hit, etc).

The "house" has an edge of just 1% in blackjack, which is the smallest house edge that you will find in any of the casino games.

If you don't feel like playing blackjack and want more social games, roulette and craps both offer odds of nearly 50% of winning, depending on what you bet on of course.

For instance - if you bet on "red" in roulette, you will be looking at odds of 48.6% if you are playing on an European roulette wheel, and 47.4% if you are playing on an American roulette wheel.

For craps, the house edge can vary - two of the most common bet types, pass and don't pass, provide the house with an edge of about 1.4%.

As you can see, blackjack, roulette and craps have varying house edges, with blackjack providing the smallest house edge.


If you want to prolong your bankroll while out at a casino or playing online, you need to avoid the slots at all costs.

Slot machines will usually have a house edge of between 3-8% - meaning, everytime you put in $1 and pull the arm, the house will take between 3-8 cents from you on average.

Slots, however, appeal to people who want a chance at really big payouts, which is why they are so popular.

In terms of total ROI, however, slots are very bad for your bankroll, and you should stick to blackjack, craps or roulette.
