Blackjack vs Roulette
Blackjack vs Roulette. Which one has better odds? Should you take up one as a hobby? Is it easier to learn one vs the other? I have all of your questions answered. Keep reading below for all of the dirty details.
Odds odds odds. We hear this word all too much in the world of betting and online casino gambling. Odds may seem pretty simple to measure up. And they are. But, they’re a little more complex than people think. For instance, 2 to 1 odds generally means you have 2 ways to lose. And 1 way to win. You can also interpret this to mean that for every $1 bet you win, you get paid $2. This kind of mentality works more for betting. Online casino’s work a little differently.
Blackjack odds at online casinos?
The casino will ultimately guarantee itself a profit. It does this by paying off bets at odds lower than the odds of winning. The difference between those odds is expressly known as the house edge. Typically used as a percentage (RTP 96.7% in slots). You know the term ‘the house always wins’ isn’t for nothing. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t make money betting online.
Let’s start with Blackjack. What are the odds at winning in Blackjack? Do you ever notice how the casino makes you play your hand out first? And if you lose, you lose your bet right away. Even if the dealer loses, you’ve lost the game. The odds at winning in Blackjack is roughly 42%. Some would argue it’s more 50% as there is a fair bit of math involved.
What’s up with Roulette?
And then we have Roulette. Roulette has such a large variety of bets you’re able to bet. The smart thing to do is to place what we call ‘even money bets’. This is when you bet on odd or even. A bet on red or black. Half of the numbers (almost) are red and half are black, this seems like the fairest bet to make. However, there are 2 numbers on the wheel in green (0 and 00) that are not part of the red or black fair betting scheme.
You have 38 numbers on the wheel. 18 and red, 18 are black and 2 are green. This gives you about a 47.3% chance at winning. The odds are arguably slightly higher than those of Blackjack.
In conclusion, I think it all comes down to whichever game you like playing more. Generally, when we enjoy something, we are eager to learn more about it. This in turn gives us an edge to win 🙂
