Finding The Best Value

Posted on 23 Jun 2011 | Casino Games

Not every casino game offers the same value, so we thought you might like some advice on which games give you the best bang for your buck!

First of all, we are defining value in terms of house advantage – the lower the house advantage, the better the value. This can be a tricky criterion to use, as many games offer multiple bets or bets that resolve over time. We will point out when this could be a factor, so you shouldn’t get confused.

Baccarat is one of the best value games in the casino, as the banker bet has a very low house advantage. It isn’t the most exciting game for more hands-on gamblers, but if you just want to ride the wins and losses, we think you should give it a try.

Video poker is an excellent choice if you are patient and can maintain concentration over a long time. With correct strategy and the right paytables, you can get the house edge down to less than 1% in some video poker variants. Find the right machine, and it is actually possible for the player to get an advantage!

Craps is a lot of fun and it has a very reasonable house advantage for the Pass Line and Don’t Pass bets. Also, these bets generally take a few rolls to resolve, so you can often get a lot more playtime for your money. Be sure to back your Pass Line or Don’t Pass bets after the come out roll, as taking (or laying) the odds has no house edge.

The Pass Line bet is what most players back. It is a bet that is usually decided over multiple rolls, starting with the Come Out roll. With the Pass Line bet, you win if the Come Out roll is a 7 or 11, and you lose if it is a 2, 3 or 12. Any other result becomes the Point.

After the Come Out roll, the Pass Line bet become a bet on whether the Point will be rolled again before a 7 is rolled. You can place other bets in between each roll, but no new Pass Line bet (or Don’t Pass) bet can be placed until the current one is resolved. If the point is rolled again before the 7, you win. If the 7 comes first, you lose.

Other craps bets are based on the Pass Line, but you really just need to know how the main bet works in order to get started. We would also recommend that you backs the odds once a point is established, as backing the odds has no house edge.

Pass Line Bet/Don’t Pass Bet

The Pass Line bet and Don’t Pass bet are the foundation bets in craps. Standard craps wisdom says to bet on the Pass Line with its low house edge of just 1.40%. However, the Don’t Pass bet is actually the better play, as it has a 1.36% house edge, slightly lower than the Pass Line. While you’ll get dirty looks for playing Don’t Pass in a live casino, no one is the wiser when you play online.

Odds Bets

Whether you are backing or laying the odds, this is one of the best bets in the casino. While you need to make a slightly sub-optimal Pass Line or Don’t Pass bet to play the odds, you actually get a true payout on this bet. There is no house edge, so you always want make an odds bet once a point has been established.

Big 6/8

These are terrible bets to make, and placing or buying the 6 or 8 is a much better option. Only suckers play Big 6 or Big 8, and the casino appreciates the oversight with a hefty 9.09% house edge compared to the 1.52% you can get for a Place 6/8 bet or 4.76% for a Buy 6/8 bet.
