Getting the lowest house edges on casino games usually takes some doing but is achievable and worth the time to obtain when you can.
For example, if you want to reduce the house edge in blackjack to less than 1 percent, you need to learn basic strategy for every possible hand vs. every possible dealer face-up card. Some video poker games have house edges of less than 1 percent – or even have a player edge in some cases – but you need to know strategy for the specific game.
