According to statistician Jeffrey Rosenthal, the casino game you should absolutely steer clear of is the Video Lottery Terminal.  Those are the ones with Keno or slot games.  They give a 5% to 15% edge TO the house.

You want better odds?  Play Craps, and you’ll have a 49.29% chance of winning.  By the way, both of these are “pure chance games” meaning it’s all luck.  They don’t have a skill element like Blackjack.

Here’s the clip.  It’s cued-up to the Video Lottery, but is full of great info, like this one at 14:46:  “Are you less likely to be in a plane crash if you’ve already been in one?”  The answer is no.  Those are statistically independent events.
