Beat the House teaches players how to win at various casino gambling games by explaining several methods of strategy, including card counting. Games include craps, poker, roulette, blackjack, and video poker. A large manual (Beat the House Companion), packed full of tips from well-known casino player Avery Cardoza, is part of the package and gives in-depth explanations of techniques for successful and profitable play.
Players can choose to play against up to three opponents depending on the game. The program includes a built-in recommendation function (online tutor) that explains which bets are more profitable and why. Additionally, the odds of specific bets coming in and which are more likely to come up are also discussed and explained. These recommendations can be optioned off at will, which converts the program from teaching to entertainment mode.
Unlike real casino establishments, going broke in Beat the House doesn't mean you have to thumb a ride home. The option to simply start over with a new stack of chips takes the sting out of losing. ~ Michael L. House, All Game Guide
