Easiest casino game to win at?

What do you folks think?

I'm thinking Roulette, mainly because it's simple.

I've seen lots of people win regularly at Craps, but that's a tough game to figure out, to be honest. I mean, I know I could learn it, but there are some complicated parts to it, at first glance.

There are always a lot of winners at craps, you can win a lot of money fast, but basically you are betting on someone else's actions.

Texas Hold'em.

Pysche out the other players into betting their cash, and BOOM, there you go, $1000 richer.

if it was easy to win at texas hold'em, it wouldn't be the game played at the world series of poker.
texas hold'em is probably the game that you're least likely to win at, if anything.

you can't just wave your hand and "psyche" other people out...and you can't always buy people out either.

Roulette.
So long as you bet short odds like red or black, you can stay even and maybe even win a little money. You are basically betting on the flip of a coin. Not particularly exciting, but effective.
I'm guessing they still bring free drinks as long as you're playing, so you wind up ahead in the buzz as well.
They didn't build Vegas (or any other casino mecca) by letting Joe Q. Public come in and win.
Craps...I don't play games named after things that come out of my ass.
I think there are bets you can make that are low risk, sort of like a coin flip as well.
Anything with a dealer and a deck of cards is trouble.

Poker night sounds like fun.

None of them are easy. The object of a casino is to make money.

Poker online is very different than real life, especially in games like Texas hold'em.

When you aren't playing with your own (or real) money, you tend to be very aggressive, which changes things quite a bit. You couldn't really care less if you won or lost so you're liking to play very different than you would if real money was at stake.

Yeah, I'm aware of the difference... all too well. It'd be just for the fun of it... and maybe the winner would get like something from KKW or something. I dunno.

Statisitcally and if you know how to play, Video Poker gives you the best odds of winning.

Craps is the worst game to win at, you odds get worse with each throw of the dice.

I have to agree with hasselbrad: Roulette. As long as you're betting short. You win a lot of times, but you don't win a very great amount of money per time. Neither do you lose a lot. Easy game.
