Understanding House Edges

There are some online casino games that you are playing where the casino has the best odds of winning. The term for this odds, is the house edge. This actually means that if you are playing certain games, the bank (or casino) has the best chance of winning. But, in another way.

Explaining house edges

When you are playing certain card games or other games where there is a dealer, the casino is getting all the money that has folded or lost. For example. If you are playing a game of blackjack, and everyone has folded, even the dealer, the bank is getting the money. So, actually even if the dealer is also losing, it is getting everyone else’s money that also has lost.

Another example is; if you and someone else are playing blackjack against the dealer, you have more than the dealer and the other guy lost. The money of the person who had lost, is going to the casino. So, even if the dealer loses against you, it is getting the other loser’s money.

Games where you can found house edges

Blackjack isn’t the only card game where you will found house edges. There are numerous games where there are house edges. These games include:

  • Roulette
  • Punto Banco
  • Video Poker
  • Baccarat
  • Keno

Even, if this sounds unfair if you are thinking about house edge, the higher the risk when you are playing these games, the better the winnings going to be. It is normally the games that are the most risk that people want to try to avoid, but they are normally not thinking about the winnings and that the winnings can really be great. Now, you don’t have to wonder anymore how the online casinos can make such much money. It is because of the odds against you and the house edge that the casino has.
