Evergreen The Game

Many online casinos use a ‘house edge’ to determine the expected value of your winnings. This is very similar to betting at a casino, except you are playing against the house rather than other players.

The following table provides an understanding of how much this affects your chance of winning:

House Edge

  • Poker: 5%
  • Blackjack: 6%
  • Baccarat: 8-9%
  • Roulette: 10-11%
  • Video Poker: 13-14%
  • Slots: 22%-25%

New players can get a bonus, often with a welcome bonus of up to £/€/$100, on their first deposit. This is usually provided by the casino you are playing and maybe time-based (i.e., one day) or percentage-based (i.e., 15%).

Understand Your Winnings

It’s important to understand exactly how much money you have won when playing for real money at an online casino. Your winnings will vary according to the rules that govern each game, but generally speaking, these are some typical amounts:


The odds of winning at slot machines are much lower than winning at blackjack or poker, so slot players will generally find it harder to win. However, this is not always the case, and there are many high-quality slots available for punters to play.


Blackjack is a game where you can win as little as 1 cent on every $1 wagered by playing perfect strategy (which requires a significant amount of time and practice). In other words, those who play cards well have a very good chance of winning money from the casino – but those who don’t take part in these games won’t make any profit at all.


Baccarat has an extremely low house edge meaning that players can potentially end up making a lot of money if they play according to the correct rules. It also means that players with poor skills may lose their deposits without gaining an advantage over other bettors. Purple baccarat tables offer slightly better returns than red ones because multiple rounds are played each hand rather than just one round played per hand, like in traditional Baccarat.


Poker is another game with a very low house edge, although new players may find it harder to win. When playing poker for real money at a casino, players will usually have the chance of making either a profit or losing their wager amount. The number of rounds played in each hand also increases as you progress through games covering all variants, including Texas Hold ‘Em and Omaha. New punters need to understand that even if they’re not winning or losing, most hands they play are still very close to what they can expect on roulette – i.e., between 0% and 16%.


Roulette is a game of chance, and it’s a game of probability, so the odds do play in your favor. This means that if you can learn how to control your bets properly, you can win at any roulette table before you leave.

You will notice that there are slots on either side of the board with single numbers printed on them. These are called ‘even money boxes’ because if you were betting $1 on each number (so $36), then every time the ball lands in an even-numbered slot, you will receive $1 back. If betting $5 per box (which is not recommended), then every time the ball lands in an even-numbered slot, you would receive $10 back, and so forth. This means that all even number slots have different payout rates depending upon where they sit within their respective rows (they run across or down).

The first row has higher payouts than the second row etc. So as long as one learned how to control their bet amount wisely based upon which column/row had more favorable odds, they could make money off of these setups alone without ever having to hit red or black (the most popular spots). Now, this isn’t some magical trick but rather just some basic mathematics behind controlling wagers based upon probabilities. It takes practice, but it is very doable. The only way you will master the art of controlling your bets properly in a short period is if you work on it every day, preferably with smaller stakes at first, until you learn how to play it right.


In conclusion, it is possible to win casino games by using the optimal strategy. Of course, this will take a lot of time and patience. But the payoffs are really good – you can hit the jackpot pretty easily if you have enough cash to play for a long period.
