There are some online casino games that do not require any skill. Roulette and slot machines are examples. Therefore all players will face the same average return on these games. There are online casino games like blackjack and video poker that require a fair amount of skill along with luck in order to do well. In such games the more skilful players will enjoy higher average returns. The best online casino software providers include functionalities in their games that enable players to play using optimum strategy without acquiring the required skill. This article first gives some examples and then explains why online casinos would want players to perform better.

Blackjack is the online casino game with the most complex skill level. The optimum moves at any situation in the game cannot be reasoned out because the number of possible outcomes is mind boggling. Optimum blackjack strategy has been generated using computer simulation and presented in tabular form. The table covers all possible situations that you are likely to encounter and indicates the correct moves. Microgaming is a leading online casino software provider and includes a blackjack strategy card with each of its blackjack variants. You can consult the card and manually make your moves. You can also put the game on auto play using the strategy card.

Video poker variants are online casino games that require skill. You are first dealt five cards and can replace as many of them as you want. If you put the correct cards on hold then your chance of winning will be higher. But if you put the wrong cards on hold then you are likely to lose more often. The optimum strategy depends on the video poker variant that you are playing. Microgaming again takes the lead. The cards to be held as per optimum strategy are automatically selected. So it can be guaranteed that you play with optimum strategy. Playing with optimum strategy in any online casino game cannot guarantee a win because there is an element of luck involved. In Microgaming online video poker you can override the auto hold selection and can disable the feature as well.

If you play online blackjack and video poker with optimum strategy the average return would be about 99%. Otherwise it can be down to 90% or lower. Players who do not have the skill level will not wager on these games with real money, except cursorily. So online casinos will net get any business. But by ensuring optimum play online casinos bring players to the table and can expect to rake in about 1% of the amount wagered.
