House advantage, or house edge, is the opposite or negative of the player expectation, expressed as a percentage of the wager. Sometimes house advantage is referred to as PC, for percentage, although care must be taken when discussing PC since this term is sometimes used for hold percentage.

"Hold Percentage" is not the same as house advantage and there is much confusion among some casino personnel regarding the meaning of “PC.”
