Which of the two has the best winning odds: blackjack or poker?

Consider which game has the highest odds for winning

Poker and Blackjack are the greatest draws for any casino, especially ones that only offer table games. If you’re looking to play a few hands of a game of chance you should first consider which game has the highest odds for winning. Does the house get the edge? Are the odds even? Do you even have the slightest chance of winning against the casino or the online gaming site?

Well, let’s answer the following question to find out. Let’s answer this question by going over the odds of each game.


The odds in Blackjack are actually some of the best odds you’ll find in a table game. Blackjack has a very small house edge of anywhere between 0.20% and 0.63% depending on the number of cards decks in play. You can increase your chances of winning by watching the cards carefully and knowing when to hit, stay, double, or split. Watching the cards carefully is different than counting cards which isn’t necessarily illegal but it is frowned upon by gambling establishments and can lead to banishment.

The odds in poker are in favor of the house which means that your chances of winning are close to 2 to 3% with a chance of 7 to 8% for breaking even and a greater chance (near 90%) of losing. Poker really is a game of chance, but seasoned players have a greater chance at winning because they’ve practically memorized the probabilities of each hand.

If you want to play a fun game that you might actually win, your best bet is to go with Blackjack, but if you want to play the game of Champions, poker is the game for you.
