Historically, some people have beaten live casinos by taking advantage of some human error or mechanical failure, for example, a careless dealer or a biased roulette wheel. While such instances are rare in live casinos, they are non-existent online. So, is there any way to beat the games?
Beating the Online Casino Games — Bonuses
There is only one surefire way to beat online casino games, and this is through use of bonuses. When you sign up with an online casino site, you will usually do so with a bonus code that may double your account balance. This extra money does not figure into the House edge and there is no statistical law that says you cannot escape with it.
Using Bonuses to Beat Casino Games
Let’s say you have a bonus that is worth $100. You need to play $1,000 to clear the bonus. If you play a game with a one percent House edge, you can expect to lose $1 out of every $100 you play.
Once you’ve played $100 you should expect to have lost an average of $10. Withdraw the remaining $90 of your bonus and you come out ahead.
The Catch to Using Bonuses to Beat Casino Games
It is conceivable that you could have a streak that causes you to lose the amount you deposited before clearing the bonus. If this happens you will have to deposit more money or abandon the bonus strategy.
Once you clear the bonus, if you are ahead, you will have to withdraw your money and not return to the site to retain your advantage. If you wish to play again, you will have to play at a different site with a new bonus.
For some players, this hit and run strategy is not that much fun and not what attracted them to online gaming. For others, bonus hunting is exactly why they are involved with online casinos — to beat the game and make money.
