Which of these 88 gambling games have actually been approved by state gaming officials?

There are a lot of bad casino bets in Las Vegas. The Big Wheel is in almost every casino and is typically considered the worst game for the player because if you count up all the possible slots, it’s not even close to the corresponding odds payout. For example, if you bet that the five slot will come up, you only get paid five times your bet when it does. However, there are 54 spots on the wheel, of which only seven are the five spot. So the true odds for hitting the five spot are almost 8 to 1. This gives the house more than a 20 percent advantage. Here are 88 games even more horrible than the Big Wheel — 44 of which are real and have actually been approved by the Nevada Gaming Commission. Wanna bet you can’t guess all 44?
