How to Win the Most Money Gambling

So you want to win money gambling?  The one rule of gambling is if you stay long enough you are guaranteed to lose, unless it is a skill game like Poker.  However that does not mean you cannot win and you do not always need to drop a ton of money.  On this page we’ll go over my favorite ways to gamble economically.  This will allow you to stretch your gambling money, and will give you the best chances to win.  Remember to always set a limit of what you can lose!

Best Odds


If you know how to play poker, then playing poker is a great bet because you aren’t against the house.  This means that you don’t have the odds stacked against you to begin with.  Almost every casino on the Strip has a poker room and you can find the best action at MGM, Aria, Caesar’s Palace, Bellagio, and Venetian.  If you prefer a more private atmosphere with less tables, play at Treasure Island, Mirage, or Monte Carlo.

If you are looking for a good poker book, take a look at Phil Hellmuth’s website. Phil has won the most number of WSOP championships with 11 WSOP bracelets and cashed in the WSOP 68 times (41 being final table appearances). He has a great book, offers training camps from time-to-time, and has a poker store you can check out at his site.

If you want to learn how to play poker I would suggest learning at Deuces Cracked or CardRunners. Both poker training websites that provide videos and commentary to make your poker game better. These sites are great because you can try out their videos for 7 days, if you like them then you can sign up, otherwise feel free to try other poker training websites. The sites also feature an active community where you can post questions and topics in their forums. Overall it is a great way to learn how to play poker.


If you play blackjack, optimally you have a 49% chance of winning.  That makes it one of the best games to play if you want to stretch your gambling dollar.  You win most of your money in blackjack by splitting and doubling down at the proper times so make sure you learn the best strategy.  One common betting strategy is to double your bet when you lose, which allows you to always win your minimum bet back.  I would not suggest this strategy for blackjack because it limits the amount of hands you can play and you can win more money when the odds are in your favor by splitting and doubling down, which allows you to double your bet.


The basic bet in craps is the pass line, and the house has a 1.41% advantage, so this game is also a decent bet.  The don’t-pass line is also an ok bet but you are betting against the other players so I would suggest betting the pass line.  The shooter can roll many times before your bet is won or lost so doubling your bet when losing is ok as long as you don’t mind playing for less time if you lose.


Betting colors on the roulette wheel is also a good bet to spend your money on.  The bet is close to 50/50 and you can normally find tables with a $10 minimum, which will stretch your gambling dollar.  If betting colors is too boring for you I have a fun betting system for the numbers.  Find a $10 table and ask for $1 chips. There are 6 black numbers and 6 red numbers per third of the table.  Pick a third, a color, and put $2 on each number.  This has you putting $12 per spin down.  Unfortunately there are 38 numbers so you still need to get lucky.  If you don’t win after 6 spins you aren’t lucky enough to break even so sitting down with $72 at a time will be sufficient.

Slot Machines

In general I wouldn’t suggest slot machines, but if I were to pick the best ones for your money I would pick Hot Hot Super Jackpot.  The best way to play slot machines is by maxing out your lines and bets, which will in turn pay out the highest jackpot.  However, I think playing the bonus option for this game is the best way to gamble for a long period of time.  The bonus option is played by pushing the large red button on the right side and it plays 30 credits.  The best part is if you hit 3 bonuses you can get 15 free spins and watch the machine play for you.  $20 can go a long way on this machine so if you feel like gambling for a while without dropping a lot of money this is the machine to find.  Even the Wynn has 6 of these machines, so almost every casino on the strip will have them as well.
