Casinos love to say certain things to their players (for example, “hit the jackpot in slot machines “). But, casinos prefer not to say other things (“don’t ask, we won’t answer”). What are their secrets?
Read on to find out what casinos are silent about.
Blackjack With One Deck Of Cards
Wow! In almost all casinos , blackjack with one deck of cards has returned. They even advertise it on their own signs.
You will see an unusual hype in this game as it offers players the best possible odds.
And here’s the rest of the story. Unfortunately, most of these single-deck games have a small change in the rules – they pay 6 to 5 in blackjack . Nothing terrible, you say.
How about an 8-fold increase in casino value? It’s pretty tangible.
How can this be? Usually casinos pay out 3 to 2 or 7.5 to 5 in blackjack . This means that if you bet $5 and get blackjack , you will be paid $7.50 (which implies the dealer does not have a blackjack).
But, in games with payouts of 6 to 5, you will receive only $6 on your bet, in other words, one and a half bucks less.
In addition, you won’t get blackjack approximately once in every 21 hands, or 4 times per hour on average. This adds approximately 1.4% to the house edge and makes this game less profitable for the player than a standard or multi-deck game. This is what casinos are silent about .
Electric Roulette Scoreboard
You probably saw an electric scoreboard on the tables with roulette. This device automatically records the last 20 winning numbers on the roulette table so that everyone can create them. It seems the casino is doing you a disservice to help you drop those numbers.
But you know what? This device has as much chance of helping you win as any crystal ball has. The roulette ball has no memory, and it does not care what numbers fell on the roulette wheel. Profit from the electric scoreboard is received only by the manufacturer and the casino itself, and it is absolutely useless for you.
Now you understand one fact more than the casinos are silent about .
99% Payback Slot
You can usually find ads offering this kind of payback on banners in casinos. But the casino doesn’t tell you (it’s in small print) that the slots return “up to 99%”. The small prefix “TO” says nothing about how these machines are actually programmed and how much they will return for you. The crux of the situation is that you generally do not understand whether the machines are programmed for any payout.
Often casino guests are proud that they have their own betting system. In truth, if you’re willing to bet that you can win a huge amount using their betting system, just call a good casino . They’ll rush to pick you up in a limousine, put you in a first class suite (all inclusive, of course), and go out to dinner while you play their own system at their casino.
Do you think casino bosses are worried that these fools (oh, I mean players) will be able to bring down their bank? Very unlikely. Casinos are based on arithmetic, not luck, so they have an advantage in arithmetic on their own side and cannot lose in the long run. Betting systems were invented hundreds of years ago.
They didn’t work then and they don’t work now. Nevertheless, the casinos are in no hurry to talk about this to the players. Now you understand why.
