What do casinos keep quiet about?
Wow! Almost all the casino online have brought back single deck blackjack. They even advertise it on their own signs.
You'll see an unusual excitement for this game, as it offers players the best 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. It's no big deal, you'll say.
How can that be? Casinos usually pay out 3 to 2 or 7.5 to 5 in blackjack. This means that if you bet $5 and get blackjack, you get paid $7.50 (which implies that the dealer has no blackjack).
But, in games with 6-to-5 payouts, you'll only get $6 on your bet, in other words a buck and a half less.
Not counting that, you won't get blackjack about once in every 21 hands or 4 times per hour on average. This adds roughly 1.4% to the casino's advantage and makes it the least advantageous game for the player than a standard game or a game with multiple decks. This is what the casinos are silent about.
You probably saw the electric scoreboard on the roulette tables. This device automatically records the last 20 winning roulette numbers for all to see. It seems the casino is doing you a disservice to help you discard those numbers.
But guess what, this device has as much chance of helping you win as any crystal ball does. The roulette ball has no memory, and it doesn't care what numbers are falling out at the roulette table. Profit from the electric scoreboard receives only the manufacturing company and the casino itself, and it is one hundred percent worthless to you.
Now you understand one more fact the casinos are silent about.
Typically, ads that offer such a return on investment can be found on the banner at the casino. But casinos don't tell you (it's written in small print) that slots give "BEFORE 99% ROI". The small prefix "DO" says nothing about how these machines are actually programmed and how much they will return for you. The salt of the situation is that you generally do not understand whether the machines are programmed for any payout.
So good luck!
