What are Fixed Odds Casino Table Games?

Have you heard that it is best to play fixed odds table games unless you really know what strategy to use? If you're new to casino table games then that may sound a bit confusing - but once you understand what fixed odds casino table games are then it will all make a lot more sense.

"What are Fixed Odds?"

Essentially the term fixed odds is used to describe casino table games where the odds don't vary. In other words your chances of winning and payout remain constant for any given bet. For example, in roulette if you're betting on a single number then the payout is fixed at 35 to 1 and the odds of winning (i.e. of that single number coming out) is fixed too. Similarly any of the seven bets in craps offer a 4 to 1 payout and the odds of w/inning are fixed as well.

When you contrast this against other table games at JoyCasino such as blackjack the difference becomes clear. Even though the payout in a game such as blackjack remains the same, the odds of winning change from hand to hand depending on the cards dealt to you and the cards dealt to the dealer. As such, the odds aren't 'fixed', so it is not a fixed odds casino table game.

"Why are Fixed Odds Casino Table Games Preferred?"

Although many people often recommend that people start out on fixed odds games, that doesn't make them 'preferred' per se. In general, fixed odds games are easier to play without requiring much strategy. While some fixed odds games such as roulette can be improved with some smart betting strategies, if you opt not to it isn't going to hamper you much.

On the other hand in games that don't have fixed odds such as blackjack, not knowing what strategy to use could be a big detriment - and could even result in a string of losses. That is why fixed odds games are 'recommended'.

All said and done, it is really up to you whether you decide to start off by playing fixed odds table games or jump straight into those that don't have fixed odds. At the end of the day, so long as you are confident of your ability to play the game in question and are willing to learn the basics, it shouldn't be a problem.
