Internet Casino Sucker Wagers — Part I

[ English ]
  • Proposition wagers in Craps: These Craps bets refers to the fact that you’re wagering that a specific thing might happen on the upcoming roll. For instance, you might make the ‘hard ways’ wager, which means that you are betting that the tosser will toss a 4, 6, 8 or 10 by rolling a double. These wagers have a casino edge of anywhere from 9.1-11.1%. This is a massive casino advantage, and it’s very abnormal that they hit.
  • Tie wager in Baccarat: This is a bet that no one, the croupier or the player will win, but that both hands will tie. This is a very abnormal occurrence in net punto banco, therefore the casino edge is high. At fourteen% casino advantage, this is the very definition of a sucker wager.
  • Insurance wager in Black Jack: Although black jack has one of the lowest casino advantages (and there is also a tonne of skill required), this is a sucker wager. Dependent on how many decks of cards are being played and the table rules, the casino advantage of this is at least 5 percent, but can be as great as 14%. Only extremely accomplished card counters can make this bet work for them, and even then it is still a sucker wager.
