Casino Games That Gamblers Can Actually Beat!

Any betting strategies, betting tips, or gambling advice should only be about 5 games, if you want to be a winning gambler.  There are only 5 casino gambling games that can theoretically be beaten over the longterm.  They are Blackjack, Video Poker, Sports Gambling, Poker (vs. other gamblers),and Horse Racing.  Is there another casino game you think can be beat?

The first piece of advice, games not on this list should not be played.  If you love to play Baccarat and won’t stop playing, I can’t help you win over the long run.  Although Baccarat, betting on the player or house, is a pretty good bet because the casino has less than a 2% edge, it is still unbeatable if you play for long periods of time.  Sure you may go in one night and win large sums of money, maybe for several weeks straight, but the more you play the mathematics will catch up to you.  Whether it’s slot machines. roulette, Let It Ride, every other game is what we call a negative expectation game.

A negative expectation game simply means the casino has the advantage over you, the odds are in their favor.  Even if it is only 1/2% of a percent, it is still negative and we know that anything times a negative is a negative.  A winning gambler only plays positive expectation games which means the odds have no swung to the players advantage.  The saying goes, “Gamblers rely on luck, Casinos rely on math.”  Winning gamblers rely on math as well.

How can the casinos have games that players can get an advantage on and still make money?  The answer is actually quite simple.  People do not take the time to learn the proper moves that must be made in order to make the game have over 100% payback or become a positive expectation game.  Casinos rely on ignorance and lack of discipline to line their pockets. Most people know that Blackjack can be beat if you count cards.  Well, that’s good enough for them.  Just knowing you can get an advantage is all they need to be encouraged to play the game.  They don’t take the time to learn the game, they just know it can be beat so they think they are going to be the ones to do it.  If a casino does find that a game is being played at a consistently high level and their “take” isn’t high enough, then they may lower the paytable or change the rules of the game, but most of the time they don’t have to.

Also, this gambling advice pertains to gambling information websites and gambling books as well.  If it is not one of the five games I mentioned and they are claiming you can win, their work is usually garbage.  There are a few exceptions like dice control in craps and unbalanced wheels in roulette, but for the most part anybody claiming they can beat any of those games is being dishonest.  Especially if it says you can win at slots.  Now, if you just want to learn about those games and improve your odds, that’s fine.  I’m speaking specifically to gamblers that only want to play games where they have an advantage.

If you simply refuse to stop playing your games then at least find out what the best bets are.  For example, if you play Craps the lowest house edge is a bet on the Pass or Don’t Pass line with full odds.  The higher the odds they will give you the better.  That way you are still playing the game you love, but you’ll be losing a lot less than betting something like a hard eight.

Once you determine which one of the 5 games most interests you, it’s time to get to work and learn how to play with an advantage.

About Greg Elder

I was 37 years old, a husband and father, a former teacher, college and high school basketball coach, and a business owner, I decided to give it all up (Not the husband and father part) to take a shot at pro gambling. I was coming off a job I hated selling insurance, and I vowed to do something I was passionate about. For the next year I would spend 12-15 hours a day researching, studying, and practicing advantage gambling techniques. The goal was to see if I could sustain our current lifestyle as a professional gambler. I wanted to find out if casinos really could be beat. At the time, I thought it may be the biggest mistake of my life, but my intentions were to have fun trying. It has been an interesting few years since that journey began. My feature book GAMBLERS FIGHT BACK has been released and can be purchased on my author site at I would consider my pro gambling career to be a success on all fronts. I didn't win millions of dollars, but I was able to enjoy every minute of it. It brought an excitement and passion back into my professional life. It has helped lead me to a writing career that I had no idea I even wanted before this challenge. I was able to write a book that shared with others exactly what I learned along the way.. Gambling professionally is not easy, but there are certain things the average gambler can do to increase their chances of success tremendously. That's the information I try to pass along to my readers.
