We know that a software is very clever .Do we have a chance to win,as the odds is on the casino side?

The longer you play, the more the casino will win - that's what the odds are all about. The trick is to cash out when you you are ahead. Chances are you'll lose it back if you keep on playing.

Make sure you play correct strategy for the games you play (www.wizardofodds.com), and stick to games like blackjack, and some versions of video poker, for which the house advantage is less than 1%.

The casino still has an advantage, unless you get a bonus, but often this means lots of rstrictions on games.

Mudah-mudahan kamu akan menang.

There is no way to overcome the house edge, except with bonuses (and that is not guaranteed, and you may not even get paid if the casino arbitrarily decides you may be a "bonus abuser"). There is NO system that works, it is mathematically impossible. I think most people on here play for fun, not for money.

I play for money, so I don't play casinos with much of my own money at risk. My advice to you would be don't play casino games as the house will always win. Cashing-out when you're winning doesn't work unless you never put money in again. If you want to win money, my recommendation would be to study a game of skill where you can play against human players (e.g. games like backgammon, gin rummy, head-to-head BJ or poker). Human players make mistakes and you can earn from this. But you have to study until you are very good, at least 10% better than the average player, in order to overcome the house rake and variance. Only then can you start to play for real money, and only against weak players. Find a game that suits you, study it on the web, buy and read books and practice, practice, practice. You need patience and determination. It's not easy money, if it were easy everybody would be doing it, but that's to your advantage, If you put the effort in you'll win from those who don't, or from those who just play for fun. As English is not your first language it will be even tougher for you.
Good luck my friend!

Head to head bj and poker

Thanks steve,
you are right and logically.i had tried software bj and caribean poker,it seemed to me that the casino had 'set up the software' to kill the player.
You wrote 'head to head bj and poker' is this live game?
Is luck no role?

I play Skill games BJ at GameAccount. You can sign up through William Hill or Paddy Power, both of whom are completely reputable and safe. But if you sign-up now and play for real money you will lose all it all - guaranteed. Knowing basic strategy BJ is not enough. Don't rush in, you'll regret it.

Also, don't play poker online until you have at least read some beginners' books. Sorry, but if you want to earn some money you'll have to work, and even then if you're not suited to the game you still won't win.

Really, your chances of becoming a winning player are very small. To be frank, you'll almost certainly save yourself money if you give up on this idea now. If you can't give up, then be very, very careful and keep bets very, very low & NEVER chase losses (i.e. start betting bigger amounts to recoup your losses), but please think very seriously about giving up.

Re. luck. Yes, this does play a role, that is the variance I wrote about, but overall luck more or less evens out. You can win or lose any single game, but if you are 10% better than your opponents you will in the long run win 10% more than you lose (less rake).
