Try your luck in various types games

While casinos always have an edge, your betting strategy should begin with knowing which games have the lowest house edge. In general, you’ll find the lowest house edges with poker, blackjack, craps, and baccarat, but not all bets in these games have low house edges, so you have to know which bets give the house the lowest edge. While players can win and win big, over the long run, the house always makes a profit. If you want to find a great resource on game tips and try to play in an online casino, you may find a useful website is casinohex.se. Here are a few tips on betting to help you minimize losses and maximize your chances of gain.

 

Poker, of course, not only depends on luck, but on the skill of the players. One of the biggest betting mistakes made by beginning poker players is thinking that just because they have put money into the pot they have to stay in the game till the bitter end. But the act of putting money into the pot doesn’t help you win. If you feel sure you have been beaten, then go ahead and fold, because you don’t gain anything by playing a hand all the way to the end.

 

Also, you should be aware that online poker is often more aggressive than live poker. With online poker, you can win more by attacking the blinds and turning small advantages in your favor, but with live poker, those small edges may not be worth going after due to the different style of play.

 

Blackjack house edges differ depending on how many decks of cards are used, and whether blackjack pays out at 3:2 or at 6:5. The more decks of cards that are used, the greater the house edge. If you are a decent blackjack player who knows basic blackjack strategy, then the house edge is only about 0.5%. Some blackjack bets have huge house edges, like the “insurance” bet you may be offered when the dealer’s face-up card is an Ace. The insurance bet is basically betting that the dealer has blackjack, and there are only four possible cards in a deck that will give the dealer blackjack. So the insurance bet is a sucker bet, and you should avoid it.

 

Additionally, if you love playing blackjack, one of the best betting tips to learn basic blackjack strategy, which is not the same as learning to count cards. Once you learn basic blackjack strategy, you’ll get the house edge closer to its theoretical 0.5%.

 

With craps, the pass and don’t pass bets are your safest, because the house edge on pass bets is just 1.41%. On don’t pass bets, it’s only 1.4%. Most people choose to make pass bets at live craps tables as a sort of “positive vibe” for the shooter. The come-out bet is your best chance for winning a pass bet because there are six ways the shooter can roll 7 and two ways he or she can roll 11.

 

At the baccarat table, it’s all based on luck, except for the “tie” bet, which is based on gullibility. While baccarat carries an overall low house edge, the house edge on the tie bet is over 14%, so one of the best tips on betting in baccarat is avoiding tie bets. For baccarat in general, the house edge is 1.24% for player bets, and for banker bets it’s 1.06%, so baccarat overall has some of the lowest house edges in the casino.

Nese, Lithuania’s oldest land-based casino operator, has launched Twinsbet – a new iGaming and sportsbook brand with a focus on sports sponsorships. The company entered into a 3-year long, €7.5 million sponsorship deal with the Wolves basketball club and secured the Avia Solutions Group Arena naming rights.

 

Twinsbet enters the highly competitive Lithuanian market with naming rights to the largest Vilnius indoor arena, title sponsorship of the Wolves basketball club competing locally and in the Eurocup, and celebrity former basketball players, the Lavrinovic twins, as main ambassadors. This sponsorship deal is worth at least €7.5 million for the next three years and may increase to €10 million if certain conditions are met.

Such a sports and iGaming sponsorship deal is among the largest in Lithuanian history. Nese will seek further collaborations with various sports organizations, focusing on both professional and leisure sports activities.

According to Alvidas Paulikas, Nese’s CEO, the company aims for the leading position locally and seeks to become the first Lithuanian operator to expand internationally.

“Twinsbet is centered around the idea that we believe in sports. For this reason, we are heavily investing in and supporting sports, including the Wolves basketball club and the Twinsbet Arena, as well as other collaborations we are currently investigating and are always open to. We plan to support local teams and non-professional sporting activities in new markets that we will enter soon,” says Paulikas.

Andrius Ziauberis, the CEO of both the Wolves basketball club and the Twinsbet Arena, says that the deal with Twinsbet will strengthen both the organization and the entire Lithuanian sports community.

“We are the only top-tier Lithuanian basketball club operating without any support from municipalities, and so this sponsorship deal will pave the way for sustainable growth. Strong teams can inspire generations both on and beyond the court, and this deal builds a solid foundation for an engaging fan experience,” Ziauberis says.

According to the regulator, the total Lithuanian gaming market amounted to €222 million in 2023, a 13 percent increase from 2022. More than 65 percent of the market is online. The total amount wagered exceeded €2 billion for the first time in 2022.
