Can somebody recommend good overall casino game with low house edge and fair chance of win some good money? I tried some slots at MG in fun mode and after first win, now I only loose "money".:( At Crypto I played Double bonus VP, win some money, lost some money, I think it's good game with low house edge, but I don't know if somebody won good money at this game. Also, there is some posts about Playtech software, where is good slots. It's truth? I am from EU, then I don't have problem with registration at this software.

Thank you for help.

If you play games with low house edge, you will only get low returns. Hard to make good money when not risking.

Low variance= play long time with small returns
High Variance= play little time, possible Big returns, possible go broke fast

If you tell us which you want we can help you find the games at trusted casinos
good luck:thumbsup:

there are some blackjacks and vp's that have positive expectations, but no online casinos host them. sometimes they have the base game that would pay 100%+, but they reduce the paytable or add rules to the game such that it pays less than 100%.

imho the game you want is pontoon. 99.61% return in most casinos, and variance is tolerable, but gives a good chance to make a nice win because of 2:1 on blackjacks and five-card-tricks, and hitting again after doubling down. just make sure you get the right strategy card (and follow it without question). mg casinos use different rules than the rest, and inetbet's (single-deck) pontoon is actually far worse and may require a different strategy that hasn't yet been determined.

however, if you are truly looking for a guaranteed way to win, there isn't one. bonuses are the best way to have a chance to end up ahead, but they are getting worse and worse as people do make profit from them and casinos struggle to make them hard to win at but still attractive enough to play. hopping around collecting sign-up bonuses is a good way to make a few bucks, but you also risk getting screwed by a rogue outfit offering an impossibly easy to beat bonus.

quitting while you're ahead makes sure you win each time, but you don't always get far enough ahead to cover the costs in time and fees to wait for the money back. and if you have a bonus, you become locked into a certain amount of wagering before you can stop. there is no one true way, or one best game. kasinoking needs to chime in here, and pimp his site and strategies, which include low-rolling it all the way and taking good bonuses from trusted sites any time he plays. (he'll also politely remind you, it's "lose" not "loose") :thumbsup:

Some games that have a 100%+ expected payback are:
--Boss Media Single-deck BJ
--5Dimes Video Poker (in Bonus Casino)
--RTG Joker Poker with higher paytable
--Betfair JoB and Roulette (Zero Lounge)
--5Dimes Let it Ride
--Progressives with abnormally high jackpots
--Many others, if you include bonuses, comps, and special promotions

Some games that have an expected payback of >99.8% are:
--Betfair BJ and Baccarat (Zero Lounge)
--Crypto Single-deck BJ
--MG Classic BJ
--5Dimes BJ and Craps
--Blackjack Switch (Playtech, World Gaming, and some DGS)
--MG All Aces Video Poker
--Party Joker Poker
--RTG Pick'em Poker (with max paytable)

Some common games that usually have an expected payback of >99.5% are:
--Blackjack
--Pontoon
--Jacks or Better VP (full pay)
--Craps with Max Odds Bet

I am looking for casino game, where is chance to win money for relatively low bet. Blackjack isn't game for me...you cannot win more, than you bet. Bet $5, win $5 is boring.
I trying play VP or slots.

Thank you for hints.

get an account in gbp at an mg casino, and go after the mega moolah progressive. pays GBP 3000000+ and you can win it even using a one-penny bet if you're lucky enough. :thumbsup:

5Dimes is primarily known as a sportsbook. I believe they have an A rating at SportsBook Review (recently decreased from A+). In addition to a sportsbook, they offer several casinos. Their "bonus casino" uses DGS software. Their MatchPlay casino uses Gametime software. Their other two casinos use AST software.

DGS software allows operators to configure rules and paytables, more so than any other software that I am aware of. Most DGS casinos choose the default. However, 5Dimes did not choose the default. In their bonus casino they offer games that have modified with rules that favor the player. I remember there being ~60 BJ variations. They offer full pay Dueces Wild (100.76% payback) as well as bizarre paytables, such as paying the same value for all winning hands. Other games have unique changes like a 2% commission to player (not banker) in Pai Gow and craps with 10x odds. I am not aware of similar modifciations to slots. Note that they have a good-sized fee for withdrawals. I remember it as being $25.

If you want low house edge, but still good chance for a single big win, Video Poker is the only reasonable choice.

I looked at them when you mentioned it in this thread and, yeah, they have hefty fees for some methods (free for others) I'll let others play the guinea pig there.

5dimes took away all the 100%+ payback games a few months ago, coincidentally right after I hit a $20,000 royal on the full pay deuces wild game. Those were the days....

I played full pay Deuces Wild at 5Dimes a few days ago. The games still seem to be there.

Wonder if it is still +EV? Do cashouts go smoothly there? I might give it a whirl.

I just checked again on my account and the only video poker games that are showing up are the progressives. Just to make sure we are on the same page, you are checking in the bonus casino right?


Maybe it's just my account that is banned from the +EV games?

Yes, I am talking about the bonus casino. I just logged in and played a few hands of full pay Deuces Wild before typing this post. The game was there, but had a ridiculously long server lag, making it awkward to play. On my account, the progressive games are listed first, and the other VP games are below the progressives.

My best overall casino game tends to be European Roulette Gold (MG).

Just wait until a certain number of streaks occur then bet to your hearts content. I can usually turn $200 into $2,000 this way.:cool:
