For instance, you may make the ‘hard ways’ bet, which indicates that you’re betting that the shooter will roll a four, six, eight, or ten by rolling a double. These wagers comprise of a house advantage of anywhere from 9 to 11%. This is a massive house advantage, and it’s incredibly rare that they hit.
  • Tie wager in Baccarat: This is a bet that no one, the house nor the player will come out on top, but that both hands will tie. This is an exceedingly abnormal occurrence in net baccarat banque, therefore the casino advantage is high. At fourteen% casino edge, this is the quintisential definition of a sucker bet.
  • Insurance wager in Chemin de Fer: Although chemin de fer has one of the smallest house advantages (and there is also a ton of ability involved), this is a sucker bet. Depending on how many decks are being played and the table rules, the house advantage of this is at least 5%, but can be as big as 14 percent. Only very accomplished card counters are able to make this bet work for them, and more often than not then it remains a sucker bet.
