Almost all casino games are a number game. Even in games like blackjack or baccarat, face cards are given their own number, 10 and 0 in this case. The mathematical aspect plays a big role in individual casino games.
Most casino players are not really sure how the integers work. Many make bets that are simply wrong or not profitable based on the numbers. Some even forget this important factor in the frenzy of the game, even if this is one of the main factors.
Let’s take a look at the payout structure in roulette . A number hit gives you a 35 to 1 payout, with the correct payout value without any housing benefit being 37 to 1 in American and 36 to 1 in French roulette. The difference between the two games clearly shows, which is better.
Euros and cents should not only make sense for the casino, but also for the individual player. Betting on wrong numbers means giving the house an edge and losing more over time than winning. Bad bets always lead to low profits. If a game is faster or you have to make more decisions per hour, the house advantage inevitably increases, and it becomes more difficult to beat this advantage.
Craps is a game that is almost entirely based on numbers. There are eleven pieces of 2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12. These are made up of two dice, in which each dice has six numbers, one, two, three, four, five, and six. The combinations of the two dice result in the eleven numbers above.
If a player made two of the best possible craps bets, the pass line and come bet, and three bets, he would play against a house edge of 1.41% on every bet he made. The expected value for a € 10 bet is, therefore, -42 cents. However, if the player only makes such bets, the expected value is -14 cents.
Let’s take a look at the players who bet on more than three numbers; Let’s say that these players on four numbers? Five numbers? Six numbers? Add a few crazy crapper bets, and what do you get? The favorite player of every casino owner.
Now let’s take a look at the expected loss that a player makes based on the number of bets. When I talk about a pass and a come bet (or more), it can be multiple come bets without a pass line bet.
Now let’s take a look at the less than optimal bets. So instead of come bets, we make place bets. The place bets have the following probabilities: 6.67% for a four and ten; 4% for a five and nine and 1.52% for a six and eight. These numbers have a huge impact on a player’s losses.
Before you go to the craps table, you’re euphoric, but once you’ve made countless multiple bets, you seem to be immune to that euphoria. Too much is happening. You are kind of deaf. So if you play this one-number bet, the euphoric expectation will continue more than if you keep placing multiple bets.
