Hi,

I was wondering, if there any place where I can find a list or table of casino games along with their house edge? I am developing a game, and just want to see what comparable house edges look like. In particular, I am interested in a list that might include some of the popular carnival games. I have seen them listed on individual pages on websites like the Wizard of Odds, but was wondering if I might be able to find a compressive list in one place.

Thank you in advance.

EDIT: Never mind, found one under the gambling info tab on the Wizard of Odds site! I can't seem to link to it though since my account has too few posts. But if anyone is looking for it, hover over Gambling Info and press on The House Edge, and you will be taken to a page titled House Edge of Casino Games Compared.

That WOO table is out of date, i.e., those games on that list are not a match to what you will see in casinos today.

Blackjack needs to be updated and perhaps subdivided by major rules variations such as 6:5. The 0.28% edge listed is for BJ pays 3:2, Dealer stands on soft 17, player may double on any two cards, player may double after splitting, resplit aces, and late surrender. That is NOT a representative BJ game - and for the average visitor to the WOO site that is not the BJ game that he is sitting down to.

Games that need to be added to the table include:

Mississippi Stud

High Card Flush.

The Three-card Poker entry lists the large house edge on the Pair Plus side-bet - but no comparable treatment of sidebets from other games is on the list.

I love PGP, but the house edge for PGP is quoted as 1.46% and assumes that the player is one-on-one against the dealer and plays half of all the hands as the banker. You should probably also assume that the pit boss is a unicorn.

There are games on that list that could probably be removed as they are no longer relevant.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

Thank you, that is good to know. I will look for updated figures for those games and will also look for the house edges for the other games you mentioned.

Also, I made another thread in the Gaming Business section around house edges. If anyone had any insight into the question posed (when is a house edge too high?), I would very much appreciate that.

Thank you!
