Net Casino Sucker Bets — Part One

  • Proposition wagers in Craps: These Craps wagers means you’re betting that a particular feature might happen on the very next toss. For example, you might make the ‘hard ways’ bet, which means that you’re betting that the tosser will roll a four, six, eight, or ten by tossing a double. These wagers have a casino edge of anywhere from 9.1-11.1%. This is a massive casino edge, and it is incredibly atypical that they hit.
  • Tie bet in Baccarat: This is a bet that neither the house nor the player will come out on top, but that the hands will tie. This is an exceedingly atypical occurrence in online baccarat banque, therefore the house advantage is high. At fourteenpercent casino advantage, this is the quintisential definition of a sucker bet.
  • Insurance wager in Blackjack: Although Blackjack has one of the lowest house advantages (and there is also a tonne of skill required), this is a sucker bet. Relying on how many decks of cards are being used and the rules of the table, the casino edge of this is at least 5 percent, but can be as great as fourteen percent. Only very experienced card counters are able to make this bet work for them, and even then it’s still a sucker bet.
