Reason I like Bovada #2:

Good Odds

Bovada online casino ad

The odds are always against you when you gamble, so it pays to play at a casino that offers good odds.  I spent quite a bit of time looking for an online casino with better-than-average odds, and the result is Bovada.  Let me first tell you about the competition, though.

Most online casinos are too greedy when setting the odds on their games.  They think they'll make more money by setting the games tighter, so the player has less chance of winning, but they're wrong.&nsbp; Most gamblers eventually gamble away all their playing budget anyway.  They're going to lose the same amount of money no matter what, the only question is how long it takes them to do so.  And when they play at a tight casino and lose quickly, they're less likely to return.

A casino which offers good odds will make just as much money as a tight casino, because the players will usually gamble away whatever they deposit anyway, no matter what the odds.  The only difference is that with better odds, they'll get to play longer before they go bust.  And that means they had more fun in the process, and they're more likely to return.

Bovada is one of they few casinos that understands this.  They offer games with good odds, knowing that if your money lasts longer, you'll be a happier, loyal customer.  Among their offerings are:

  • Two blackjack games returning over 99.8%
  • Single-0 roulette
  • Full-pay Jacks or Better (99.54%)
  • Nine other video poker games returning over 99%

You don't have to play at Bovada, but wherever you play, make sure they offer odds at least this good!

Sortable List of Las Vegas Casinos

or see my pretty, prefab list of Vegas casinos

I define "casino" as a place with table games, not just slots/video poker.
Otherwise every convenience store in town would be considered a "casino".
This list does not include casinos in Henderson, NV (like "M"), only Las Vegas (going by postal address).
