Casino game

Games available in most casinos are commonly called casino games. A casino game typically provides a predictable long-term advantage to the house while offering the player the possibility of a large short-term payout.

Casino games often offer the player the illusion of control in which the player is given choices, but the choices do not eliminate the player's long-term disadvantage (the house advantage). This disadvantage is caused by the casino not paying the full amount that would be expected for the odds wagered. For example, if one game was played by betting what number a roll of a dice would give, instead of paying 6 times the amount bet for winning (because its a 1 in 6 chance) the casino only pays 5 times the amount bet.

A list of some casino games is given below.

Many casino games are also available outside casinos, playable on machines which simulate them.
