    Look for games with low minimums that are easy to understand. Try to familiarize yourself with those games to identify tables with bad rules.

    Blackjack is pretty easy to understand and you can find basic strategy anywhere. But some casinos pay 6/5 on bjackjack instead of 3/2. Avoid those.

    Roulette is pretty easy to understand also but most tables have a 00 which makes the house advantage very high.

    Slot machines can be found in almost any variety and any limit. But you really have no idea what the house advantage is.

    Video poker, on the other hand is just poker but with several different varieties and many limits and the machines give you all the information you need to know what the house advantage is.

    I suggest visiting this site for more comprehensive information.

    Craps are good to play on, when the opening bet isn't some outrageous number like $50 per hand. Just learn the ropes before going in, and you can make some fair money with out really doing much work.

    Slots are not all bad, but they usually are in the house favor, not all slot machines are though, there are a random few that you can get some money out of, I for one know this, I always play slots when I go and 2 out of 3 visits I leave with more money then I brought. You just have to know when to stop, and never spend your winnings, because that's how you leave with nothing.

    Last Sunday on my way out of the casino, I was walking past a machine someone hit big on...

    Max bet + "two 10 Times Pay icons + a Triple Bar Icon" Yeah why couldn't that have been one of my machines?

    -_-

    goto the craps table, dont worry about how complicated it looks, the dealer will tell you how to make a pass or dont pass bet, stick only to the pass or dont pass line bet and since it wins only by the numbers rolled on the dice, the dealers will figure all that out for you, and all you need to do is pick which one to bet on.

    craps has a very low house edge, and its just like betting on red or black it pays even money, but the dice have to land on certain numbers to win and lose.

    Additionally, the game is very slow, and you may not win or lose for several rolls which will ensure you have hours of fun even if youd do slowly lose your money.

    you will lose 20x as much money playing slot machines, so DONT PLAY THE SLOT MACHINES!

    DONT PLAY THE BIG SIX WHEEL

    all the other games are fair enough, you coudl en joy them at low cost, some games like blackjack will take your money fast if you dont know what your doing so be weary of games that require strategy.

    First thing you should keep in mind that you should prefer playing with good hands. Try to be a little competitive when you play. Don’t wait for a good chance to play. Make the bets strong so that your opponents are forced to fold. To know more about online casinos and casino games you may check this link http://www.thebonuscasinos.com/. Make sure that you don’t apply everything in one go.

    Blackjack is an easy game to learn, has good odds... You can find $2 tables on a slower night. if you go when its busy, $5 min. bet table will be likely... but full... You can always find $10 tables... but moeny will come and go fast.

    Roulette is also a great easy to learn game. Not as packed as blackjack and very easy to learn as you go. You can bet as little as $1 on every spin, and you can pick between black and red, or even or odd, or pick numbers.

    Blackjack is easy..but definitely not the game to play! especially when the house plays with a 6-deck...You're bound to lose either way. even if you get on a winning streak, you're best off to walk away or you will lose it within the next 5 hands or so.

    the first answer is lame

    craps is the most adrenaline

    roulette i personally dont like but some people do

    blackjack is the best i think

    if you are good at poker, play that since there is no house edge, its a game not gambling

    Your best bet is to walk out the door, nothing is in your favor.

    But, black jack is usually good for beginners. Perhaps you could do minor bets on roulette.
