About the Cards...
Most casinos will allow you to use basic strategy cards while you play. However, I've always found this to be a little awkward. I recommend memorizing the chart before you sit down to play.

Gaming Strategy, Casino Odds and Tips

There are many different types of games in Las Vegas. Some offer better odds than others. If the odds are more in your favor, you can make your money last longer and have more fun in the process. Remember, the odds or "house advantage" will always be in favor of the casino, but some games give you a better chance of winning than others.

The basic odds chart below shows the odds for some of the more popular games in Las Vegas. Please note: The chart assumes that you know how to play each game correctly. Studying basic strategy cards such as the Basic Blackjack Strategy Card will help you significantly.
