Vegas Odds vs Online Casino Odds

Vegas Odds or Online Odds?

If you read the leading online gambling forums you’ll probably run across a small, but vocal cadre of players screaming foul, saying that things just aren’t what they use to be as far as payback percentages on online slot machines. But hang on…

Used in gambling and statistics – ‘Odds’ are a numerical expression used to reflect the likelihood that a particular event may take place. Odds are expressed in the form “X to Y”, where X and Y are numbers.
