Card Counting in Live Casinos

Discussing Card Counting in Live Casino Games

We’ve all seen the movie 21, right? The film tells the story of the MIT students who broke Las Vegas and thus inspired whole generations of modern gamblers. Their tricks with card counting proved to be quite lucrative as they took millions – but not everyone is as lucky as they were. Although this story is true, players who subsequently tried their hand in counting cards weren’t as successful. Nevertheless, the debate is still on – is card counting an efficient technique for winning? But more importantly, is card counting even legal? Let’s discuss. How Does Card Counting Work? The term ‘card counting’ is self-explanatory. Players count cards during rounds to try and predict the upcoming outcomes. Based on their predictions, they pull certain moves – which may or may not result in wins. Of course, they hope for a success, but that depends on several factors. For card counting to be effective, the players need a game with good rules. Take Blackjack, for instance. If Blackjack pays 6:5, or there is no doubling down after splits, the rules are already too harsh of a task for the players to beat. Card counting would not help that much in this instance. ….

What are La Partage and En Prison French Roulette Rules

The Benefits of La Partage & En Prison Roulette Rules

If we were to ask a regular Roulette player what variants of the game exist, the chances are that he would say two. There is European Roulette and American Roulette, and we all know what’s the main difference between the two. But did you know that there is another, third variation of the game? French Roulette, which many players consider a synonym for European Roulette, does bear significant similarities with its European counterpart. However, this version has something other variants do not – additional rules that make the game even more favorable. En Prison and La Partage are two of those rules that you can find only in French Roulette. If you want to learn more about them, keep reading.

This is the last game to be introduced to the virtual arena, and it seems that its introduction is about to shake the entire casino frame. Let’s see how. The More the Merrier Before we launch our discussion, it’s useful to note that there have been attempts to bring craps to the online sector for a very long time. For instance, when software companies started making casino games, they began from table games. Craps and slots quickly followed suit. But what is interesting about craps is its nature. The game centers around community play. A craps table is the most crowded one on the casino floor, populated by players trying to roll a seven. (Or trying to avoid rolling sevens, it depends.) In the virtual casino community, craps exist solely as RNG variants that let you place ….

Perhaps their beauty lies in the versatility, as game developers can experiment with each creation to no end. There is one type of slot games whose main benefit includes double paylines. The slots, popularly known as pay both ways slots, are an excellent way to double the existing paylines in the game. However, we noticed that there is a deficit of such games on the market.

What Is Online Casino House Edge

Getting Around the House Edge: Playing Against the House

The house always wins. Every player knows that frequenting casinos bears a certain risk. Although many players cannot really find a name for that risk – they know very well that the risk is there. And that risk is ladies and gentlemen, the house edge. The term describes the notion that all casinos (houses) have an advantage (edge) over players in each round of every game. It’s not hard to guess why the casinos maintain this advantage. Gambling halls are places where players go to gamble and have fun. Occasionally, they win – and that means that the house lost. Of course, casinos cannot afford to lose always, so they need a guarantee that they will stay in business no matter what. In other words, they need an upper hand over the players. As we said, each game has a house edge, but they are not all the same. Below you will find out which games have the lowest house edge in the entire casino game offering. Top Games with the Lowest House Edge The holy trinity of low house edges in online casinos is Baccarat, Craps, and Blackjack. No other games can compete with these three when it comes ….
