Two parts to this question:

Is there a table of the "hit rate" of common casino table games? For comparison purposes?

Are "push events" (where the player has no net win/loss) calculated as part of the hit rate?

I'm not an expert, but I take hit rates to be wins only; that's how I calculate them on my games, anyway, and I haven't been corrected. If you look at any game in the WizardofOdds list, nearly all of them have a probability chart that includes the HE for each bet on a game. If you add up the probabilities (usually the header of that column) that are positive, that will give you a hit rate. A lot of times it's easier to note the "-1" probability and subtract if from 1 than add up an entire odds table.

Cool! Thanks!

With regard to pushes, my game is kind of odd where you never have a true push, like a tie in blackjack.

Instead, you have 6.5% chance of winning 1 unit and losing 1, or winning 3 units and losing 1 x 3.

Not really sure how to quantify that... :-/

The percentage of time someone wins in the game is usually called "frequency", but I think win rate would be understandable by everyone whereas frequency would be more of a gaming employee or knowledgeable player term.

Adding up all the probabilities to win would give you that number. Ties do no count toward frequency.
