Blackjack Tables Raising the Odds against Players?

Players are always wary of those blackjack casinos that have the odds stacked high against them. Sadly, it would seem that this is going to be a trend where the odds are hiked in order to meet the increasing costs faced by casinos. And as always players are against this!

Casinos usually raise the house’s percentage by playing roulette with 0 and 00 on the wheel, by tweaking the odds on slot machine games, and by changing the blackjack payoff ratios. However, they cannot keep doing this and need to find new ways of improving the house odds. If players were to find out all about the constant raised odds, they would leave the casinos, and hence casinos have to find different ways of doing the same.

A panel that explored different ways of how casinos can improve the house odds have come back with the information that installing a cup holder at the blackjack table will allow companies to benefit from it. Players usually spill drinks on the table in their excitement and that bites into the time for the game, which decreases the number of hands played and decreases the money on the table, hence companies can install cup holders and players can play the game without getting irritated as well.

It was also suggested that the number of side bets on common games should be increased and that the experiment would be put into effect starting with blackjack.
