Average Returns For Popular Online Casino Games
One way of classifying online casino games is based on whether or not skill is required. Some games like baccarat, roulette, pokies and craps do not require any skill. The average return in these games depends only on the game structure. Other games like blackjack and video poker require both skill and luck. There the average return also depends on how well you play the game. In online gambling literature the average return for these games is cited based on optimum play. This article will acquaint you with average returns for purely luck based games. The average return is the amount that you can expect to win expressed as a percent of the amount wagered.
In online baccarat you have the Banker bet, the Player bet and a number of side bets. The side bets have a low average return and should not be on your radar. The Banker bet offers an average return of 98.9% and the Player bet of 98.8%. These are among the best returns you can get in online casino gambling. The flip side is that the payouts are 1:0.95 and 1:1 respectively, so you are unlikely to win anything remotely big. Therefore playing baccarat online is hardly an exciting proposition.
The online roulette variant to play is European Roulette. All bets in this game offer an average 97.3%. The payouts range from 1:1 for bets covering 18 numbers to 1:35 for single number bets. For a slightly lower average return you can play for larger payouts and also calibrate your risk-return position by mixing different bets. Many Australian online casinos offer French Roulette. In this game, when 0 is the called number half the even money bets are returned to the player. The average return increases to 98.7% for a payout of 1:1, which equates this bet to the two baccarat bets discussed above.
Online pokies are the most popular games at Australian online casinos. Unfortunately it is impossible to calculate the average return for online pokies because only the software developer knows the exact structure of the game. The best software developers now release information on the average return and you will find this between 94.5% and 96.5%. Craps is an online casino game in which every bet has a different average return and most of these are abysmally low. For example Any Craps has an average return of only 83.3%. There are very few online craps bets that are worth looking at. The pass line bet is one of them and has an average return of 98.6%.
