In the previous articles available on the portal Casinoz, we have repeatedly talked about a mathematical advantage, present in almost all (with rare exceptions) gambling games of casinos. Read more about it in separate publications, but here we are just going to remind our readers that this is an indicator, expressed as a percentage, which means what part of the total bets made by customers goes to the cashier of the casino for a long period of time.

If we talk about exact numbers, the majority of modern online video slots return about 95-97%. Usually, developers of software do not hide the data about return and publish them in the rules. By subtracting this number from 100% we get the house advantage, also expressed as a percentage.

As you probably know, you can not beat the operators of gambling business playing slot machines and other games where everything depends solely on the will of the random number generator. All they will take a small part of total bets, and you have no opportunity to influence this process.

Thus, you should give preference to games where results depend primarily on the user's skills, for instance, blackjack, video poker, different versions of poker and some others. Players can try to defeat the casino with their help. Although we warn you in advance: do not expect miracles, and get ready for a pretty hard work.

So, let us discuss step by step what players should do.

## Selection of games

Online casinos have a small range of games where clients could get a mathematical advantage even theoretically. To find such a model, you would have to search thoroughly for it or use the advices of those who have already found it.

Major developers of software earned a favorable reputation on the market, so they indulge us with really profitable games very rarely. They count on a spectacular animation, user-friendly interface, unusual features, as well as other minor things. Therefore it is advisable to apply to models of promising studios, which are struggling to attract attention to their products.

Fortunately, many multiplatform casinos that are operating now offer games of different brands. This makes it possible to enjoy all the benefits that are provided by such establishments, and at the same time, choose a model with a high theoretical return.

Most likely, you will choose blackjack or video poker, because exactly they have usually the most attractive conditions.

## Gameplay

Then you have to learn how to play. It's not as difficult as it may seem at first glance. For example, there are tables with the optimal strategy for any video poker or blackjack. They can be used directly during playing. No one can prohibit this in online casinos.

However you still have to deal with a system of bet sizes, based on your bankroll, and take into account a couple of other things. Read about them in our special articles devoted to various games.

Of course, it would be even better if you start playing blackjack in brick and mortar casinos, where you will be able to practice card counting and other techniques. But we understand that this advice is useless for the majority of our readers. Only few visitors of Casinoz can regularly visit casinos abroad, and you will hardly find really profitable blackjack rules in domestic legal casinos (even if you live near them). And they don't have a sufficient number of customers that he who counts cards could easily get lost in the crowd.

## Draws, bonuses and tournaments

Now consider the other possibilities to receive an additional advantage over the gambling establishments. All self-respecting online casinos offer customers a variety of bonuses, lotteries, draws of valuable prizes and other incentives. Naturally, you have to use everything that is truly beneficial.

Start from the study of bonuses. Not all of them are worth drawing attention, but sometimes you can come across offers that you surely should take advantage of. On the site Casinoz you will find a detailed article on how to determine profitability of bonuses.

Next, you should carefully study a loyalty program. We are going to remind you that we are talking about system of points that are accrued to customers for making real bets. This system is valid in almost all casinos. After earning a certain amount, the player is able to redeem them for money. The number of comp points depends not only on the size of the bet, but also on the game, and the exchange rates are set separately for each level of customers.

So, if you find the same model with favorable conditions in different casinos, learn bonuses and loyalty programs that are available in these establishments. The difference can be quite substantial.

Tournaments should also be noted. First of all, players should pay attention to the competition without entry fee. They provide an opportunity to compete for a part of the prize pool without risking your own money. Events where customers just play in an ordinary mode and the winners are determined by the results of the qualifying rounds can be interesting. Usually, they are rewarded with comp points of the loyalty program.

Do not forget about the draws of prizes that are often held by the large associations of gambling sites (e.g., Vegas Partner Lounge).

## Conclusion

As you can see, the process of obtaining a mathematical advantage over the casino is not easy. In fact, it is extremely difficult to make it a profession in online gambling. On the other hand, using our recommendations, you can just enjoy the game, significantly increasing the probability of positive results.

We deliberately indicated neither specific models nor casinos. We will try to present our readers rankings of the most profitable games in the near future. It will include models with the maximum theoretical return. It will also be accompanied by recommendations on the strategy that should be chosen directly for this game. We will also advise casinos where you can bet on the most favorable conditions.
