House Edge in Macau

House Edge in Macau

The chart below lists every casino game currently offered in Macau, ranked in order from best to worst.  Games are judged according to their best bet, the one that results in the lowest House Edge or Element of Risk. 

The lower the number the better – a House Edge of 0% means you can expect to lose $0 for every $100 bet, which is a completely fair game. Conversely, a house edge (or element of risk) of 1% means you can expect to lose $1 per every $100 bet.

The chart also assumes you follow optimal strategy which is usually very easy to learn.  Most games don’t even require you to make any kind of strategic decision at all, you just bet then win or lose.  For information on optimal strategy, the Gambling Quiz has you (mostly) covered, but if you can’t find what you’re looking for there, just leave a question in the Comments section below, and I’ll try and help.  

Generally speaking, the best advice I can give you in relation to gambling is not to do it.  If you are going to gamble though, the next best advice would be to only play games where you have an advantage.  Short of a dealer hole carding something somewhere though, those opportunities do not exist in Macau.  Therefore, the proper course of action would be to stick to games with the lowest house edge, and only play those. 

Compared to most casinos in the world, the house edge in Macau is quite fair for the player, especially when playing Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, and Pai Gow, when banking at the Lisboa.
