Wizard of Odds

Today's gambling site of the day is the Wizard of Odds. If you've spent any time on the Internet at all looking at gambling sites, you've probably already come across this jam-packed, informational site. Michael Shackleford writes the site, and the webmastering is all handled by Michael Bluejay. Together they have created what probably really is the final word on gambling strategy on the web.

The Wizard's site contains a complete explanation of the math of gambling, especially as it relates to the house edge, both conceptually, and specifically. (In other words, he explains what the house edge is for almost every casino and gambling game you can imagine. The Wizard also explains what is mathematically the best strategy for each casino game, and he does all of this in clear English.

The site also includes versions of various casino games that can be played for free with no download. (They're java based games.) If you're interested in online casino gambling, the site features a full review of all of the major casino gambling software platforms, including reviews of:

  • Microgaming
  • Playtech
  • Realtime Gaming
  • Cryptologic
  • OddsOn

And a few other software packages that I've never heard of and never played on.

The Wizard also includes a casino blacklist, warning players about which casinos to stay away from, and he offers a section of website recommendations of his own.

One of the things I like the most about the Wizard of Odds is that his website is really light on advertising, having only one sponsor currently.
