In casinos, the odds for table games can vary significantly, but generally speaking, some of the fun with the worst odds for players are:
Keno: This is a lottery-style game where players pick numbers on a card and then draw random numbers. The odds of hitting a large payout in keno are extremely low, making it one of the worst bets in the casino.
Big Six (Wheel of Fortune): This game involves a large vertical wheel that is spun. Players bet on which segment the wheel will stop on. The odds of hitting a specific segment are not in the player’s favor, and the house edge can be pretty high.
Carnival Games: Some casinos offer various carnival-style games like Three Card Poker, Let It Ride, and Caribbean Stud. These games often have high house edges, making them less favorable for players.
Slot Machines: While not a table game, slot machines are among the worst bets in a casino regarding odds. The return-to-player (RTP) percentages for slot machines can be lower than many other casino games.
American Roulette: There is an additional “00” pocket on the wheel compared to European roulette. This extra pocket increases the house edge, making the odds less favorable for players.
It’s important to note that the specific odds and house edge can vary based on the casino and the rules they use for each game. If you’re looking for better odds, consider games like blackjack (when played with optimal strategy), certain types of poker, and some bets in craps (e.g., Pass Line and Don’t Pass Line) which tend to have more favorable odds for players.
