, WHAT IS THE HIGHEST PAYING CASINO GAME? AND WHAT GAME HAS THE HIGHEST ODDS FOR WINNING?? SOME BODY TOLD ME THAT KENO HAS A VERY LOW POSSIBILITY OF WINNING. I USED TO LOVE TO PLAY KENO OR SUPERBALL AT THE INDIAN BINGO CASINOS AND THIS GUY SAID THAT THE PROGRESSIVE PENNY, NICKEL OR QUARTER SLOTS HAVE A MUCH HIGHER POSSIBILITY OF WINNING. I DO NOT KNOW IF THIS IS TRUE BUT IF IT ISN'T, WHAT IS THE GAME WITH THE HIGHEST PAYOUT AND CHANCE OF WINNING.I don't know, .

Ok the highest paying game depends on how the casinos have set their game rules on table games or payout rates on the slots. Here's the typical payout percentage of some games (the higher the better, with 100% being a break-even game against the house):

Vegas Strip blackjack rules: 99.6%
Jacks or Better video poker: 99.5%
Baccarat - bet on banker: 99.0%
Baccarat - bet on player: 98.8%
European Roulette (single 0): 97.3%
American Roulette (with 00): 94.7%
Slots - anywhere from 80% to 99% (average online is about 95%)
Keno - anywhere from 65% (yes that bad) to 95%, but typically around 80%

The Craps odds bet is a perfectly fair 100% payback bet, but you have to play a Pass Line bet first which has a payback of about 98.6%. But some tables allow you to play 100x odds, which makes the house edge very small.

Video Poker double-up bets are also 100% payback as they pay exactly double your money and you have a 50:50 chance of winning.

But if you want to play a game that could make you an instant millionaire then your choice there is really between slots and keno. On average slots pay back a lot better than Keno.

I always thought Video Poker had low chance of winning, don't really know why but maybe because somehow it is associated with slots in my mind...

In fact it is possible to find video poker pay tables that pay back more than 100% to the player from time to time.

The thing with video poker is that it is higher variance than something like baccarat or blackjack. What that means is that you have bigger swings in terms of wins and losses.

Thanks Ed, I'll try to master this game better now Smile I try to improve my skills at free game versions, where everything goes well most of the time.. But as soon as I start betting for real, everything seems to go so wrong........ I have an impression that I play at a biased soft all thee time...

The free games we have on here should not be biased in free play mode.

We have blacklisted casinos that do this as it is not fair to players. If we find any other casinos or software doing that, we will blacklist them!

By free games I didn't mean those games you've listed here, Ed. I said it in general.. once I even remember how shocked I was when I saw an online casino software advertisement, saying openly that on free version the rng pays more than on the real money games.......
