Understanding the odds of any given online gambling game could well be the most important factor in successfully cracking Las Vegas online games. What I mean by ‘cracking’ is simply to come out ahead more often than not.
Of course, this is not to say that just by understanding the odds of online blackjack or online craps, for example, that you will become a millionaire in one week.
The reason for this is that there are lots of factors to think about other than just odds such as ‘luck’, basic strategy and your understanding of the rules of the game, when gambling online.
However, a good knowledge of a casino game’s odds is an excellent place to start. If you don’t know what odds are, here is a brief explanation. Odds are a mathematical representation?of the probability of a potential result or outcome, represented in percentage or ratio form.
Take a single dice, for instance. A standard casino dice has six sides. This means the odds of any one of the sides coming up is 20% or 1:5 as expressed in ratio form.
In the game of blackjack, which is just as popular in online casinos as it is in Las Vegas itself, the odds change from one hand to another as cards are dealt and effectively ‘leave’ the deck.
This is what ‘card counting’ is all about, to effectively keep track of all the cards that have left the deck to be able to work out the cards remaining in the deck, and thus the odds of drawing the cards needed to beat the dealer.
While card counting cannot work in online casinos, the thought of being able to memorize all those cards is still pretty exciting.
So spend some time online researching your online casino game of choice, buff up on your online odds knowledge, formulate a basic strategy and the sky is your virtual limit!
