A casino is a building that accommodates gambling. Customers may gamble by participating in games (e.g., craps, roulette - for more see casino games). Game rules usually have mathematically determined odds built in that ensure the house retains a minimum percentage of the money spent overall. Some statistically even games may take a commission or tax on bets customers make against each other (e.g., poker, pai gow, baccarat, sports betting).
