Unless you’ve been living in a cave the past few years, you have most likely heard the golden truth that the house Always Wins. After all, who wants to bet on a game that is guaranteed to payout poorly, right? So why even bother, then? There’s a very simple catch, however.
While many online casinos will openly state their baccarat rule on their respective websites, some also prefer to keep it a secret. There are several reasons for this, but the main one is the fear of legal action. If a player were to bet on a game of blackjack where he/she knew that the house was going to win, and the game was subsequently lost, that would clearly constitute gambling, and therefore the player would certainly be sanctioned.
Blackjack, craps, roulette, slots – there are literally thousands of slot games and betting games available, from the simple video slot machines at arcades to the high-tech, hi-tech electronic roulette and casino poker game at your local casino. And yet, at some time or another almost every casino player will be confronted with the question of whether or not he/she has enough “quit” money in his/her pocket to “beat the odds” and claim the big jackpot prize. If you’ve ever played the slot machines at a live casino before, then you’ll probably know that there is no such thing as a “loan” on these machines, because you can’t exactly “place” a bet on a number (although you could technically place a bet on the exact same number that has just rolled over and hasn’t been paid yet).
This has caused a new problem, which is currently being addressed by some online casino games, by introducing a new form of play called “matching.” You might wonder what a match is – it’s very simple: two people start up a game by betting and then they try to eliminate each other. They can do this by playing against an opponent on either a blackjack table or a slots table. The point is to try to win the pot by the greatest number of possible wins.
One way that these match play casino games differ from the traditional slots is that instead of “hitting” a single reels with their money, players must “match” their bets, i.e., they bet, say, two chips on a straight, and they then try to eliminate him by matching their bet with the next bet in the sequence. If they both win the pot, the game is over. Of course there is a house edge, which is the casino’s share of the profit. But what is the average house edge on the top slots games online? About six percent, according to one casino directory.
