Casino Games with the Best Odds

Life, liberty, and the pursuit of casino games with best odds. As a Michigan online casino player, you should always be looking for the best ways to maximize your winnings. Playing games that boast the best odds at casinos is a great place to start, and we’re here to lay them all out for you. 

Casino Games With Best Odds

So, what casino game has the best odds? We could just create a bulleted list of table games but with all the variants available nowadays, it can get a little bit more complicated than that. That’s why we’re here to break it down for you and help you find not only the casino games with the best odds but also the variants and rule sets that you should be playing within each category.

Blackjack Games in Michigan

Blackjack is the undisputed king of casino games with the best odds. Depending on the variant and the rules, blackjack can reach over 99.5% return-to-player (RTP), making it almost even odds between the player and the house. While there are no casino games with 50/50 odds, blackjack comes extremely close.

Reaching this extremely high RTP requires two things: knowing the rules, and playing optimal blackjack strategy. We’ll explain some of the rules below, and we also have a blackjack strategy chart for you to use.

Here are some rules that you should be looking out for to maximize your win potential on blackjack, no matter the variant:

  • High blackjack payouts. In most cases, you’ll find blackjack has a 3:2 payout. That being said, you may find some variants with a 2:1 payout.
  • Double down at any time. This will allow you to increase your initial bet at any time, which can be incredibly useful if you’ve got good cards coming out.
  • Dealer must stand on soft 17. Any opportunity for you to stop the dealer in their tracks adds odds in your favor.

In addition, it may be worthwhile to look for single-deck blackjack variants. Many versions of blackjack are played with four to six decks, but a single deck makes it easier to keep track of what’s come out and what may be next.

Players can find a wide variety of blackjack games on Golden Nugget Casino and new players can take advantage of our exclusive Golden Nugget Michigan bonus code: SHARP to claim $10 free play with no deposit necessary along with a 100% deposit match bonus up to $1,000 + 200 Free Spins on 88 Fortunes. Terms and conditions apply.

Video Poker Michigan

Video poker comes in many varieties, but the most popular Jacks or Better variants usually hold an RTP nearing blackjack, as high as 99.5%. The rules are simple: your goal is to make the best poker hand possible with two deals. After receiving your initial hand, you can choose to hold as many cards as you’d like. Once you’ve selected the cards you’d like to hold, the other cards will be replaced. Every video poker variation will list the paytable on the game screen, ranging from Jacks or Better on some versions (1x payout) up to a royal flush (800x payout). That means if you bet $100 on your hand, you could win $80,000 with a royal flush.

You can find perhaps the most popular version of video poker, Game King, on BetMGM Casino Michigan. New players can use our BetMGM bonus code: SHARPCASINO to receive a 100% deposit-match bonus up to $1,000.

Craps Online in Michigan

Craps can seem like a confusing beast of a game but in reality, there are only a few bets you need to know to maximize your RTP.

At the most basic level, Craps starts with a come out roll. At this point, players can bet on whether the shooter’s roll will result in 7 or 11, craps (2, 3, or 12), or whether it’ll enter the points phase (this happens when any number other than 2, 3, 7, 11, or 12 is rolled). For the best odds, all players should start with a bet on the Pass Line, which holds a house edge of only 1.41%.

Once the game enters the points phase, more bets can be placed, some of which hold a house edge of 0% individually. Most online Craps games start with a tutorial but if you want more information, you can also check out our Craps page. We highly recommend you learn the rules and start in demo mode but once you’ve got the hang of it, Craps can be an extremely fun and rewarding experience.

You can find Craps and First Person Craps on DraftKings Casino Michigan. If you’re new, make sure to start strong with our DraftKings exclusive offer for a $60 sign-up bonus + $25 free site credit (with a $5 deposit) for a total of $85. Terms and conditions apply.

French Roulette at Casinos in Michigan

Roulette is one of the best casino games for beginners, and it also happens to be one of the best odds options. Almost all roulette games have a return-to-player (RTP) in the mid-to-high 90s, giving it some of the best odds in casino. That being said, if you want the best possible odds, your choice should be French Roulette. Aside from having just one zero pocket, there are other features that raise this game’s RTP to a whopping 98.65%. These include the En Prison rule and the Le Partage rule. Keep in mind that these features aren’t available on all variations of French Roulette, so make sure to check the rules before you play.

  • En Prison rule: If an even-money bet loses, it’ll remain on the table for the next spin. If it wins on that spin, the player will have their stake returned.
  • Le Partage rule: A losing even-money bet can be split evenly between the player and the house. With this rule, even if you lose, you’ll receive 50% of your stake back.

The French Roulette table may look a bit different from other roulette tables you’ve seen, but the bets are still straightforward and easy to understand. Because of the high RTP, many casinos don’t offer this roulette variant. However, you can find it at Caesars Casino Michigan. Even better, new players can take advantage of our Caesars exclusive promo code SHARPCZR for a 100% deposit-match bonus up to $2,000 to get started. Terms and conditions apply.
