Web Casino Sucker Bets — Part One

  • Proposition wagers in Craps: These Craps wagers alludes to the fact that you are betting that a specific feature may arise on the very next toss. For example, you may make the ‘hard ways’ wager, which means that you are betting that the shooter will roll a four, six, eight, or ten by tossing a double. These bets offer a house edge of anywhere from nine to eleven%. This is a massive casino advantage, and it is very rare that they hit.
  • Tie bet in Baccarat: This is a wager that neither the house or the player will win, but that both hands will tie. This is an exceedingly abnormal occurrence in net Baccarat, therefore the casino edge is high. At 14.1% casino advantage, this is the very definition of a sucker wager.
  • Insurance in Black Jack: Although black jack has one of the lowest casino advantages (and there is also a lot of skill involved), this is a sucker bet. Dependent on how many decks of cards are being played and the rules of the table, the house advantage of this is at least 5%, but can be as great as 14 percent. Only very accomplished card counters can make this wager work for them, and even then it remains a sucker bet.
