Explanation of House

The entity that operates and regulates the game is known as the “house”. In most cases this refers to a brick ‘n’ mortar establishment that provides the dealers, tables and chips i.e. a casino.

While an online poker-site/casino could potentially be referred to as the “house” this is rarely the case.

The expression “the house always wins” refers to the fact that all casino games are designed to generate a positive expectation for the house.

Example of House used in a sentence -> Don’t you know that in slots, the house always wins?
