Internet Casino Sucker Wagers — Part One

  • Proposition wagers in Craps: These Craps wagers basically means you are betting that a distinct thing may happen on the next roll. For example, you may make the ‘hard ways’ bet, which means that you are wagering that the shooter will roll a four, six, eight, or ten by rolling a double. These bets have a casino advantage of anywhere from 9.1-11.1percent. This is a massive house edge, and it is very atypical that they hit.
  • Tie bet in Baccarat: This is a bet that no one, the dealer or the player will come out on top, but that both hands will tie. This is an exceedingly abnormal occurrence in internet baccarat chemin de fer, therefore the house advantage is high. At 14.1percent casino edge, this is the quintisential definition of a sucker bet.
  • Insurance wager in Black Jack: Although black jack has one of the lowest house advantages (and there is also a ton of ability required), this is a sucker bet. Relying 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 big as 14%. Only very experienced card counters are able to make this bet work for them, and even then it’s still a sucker bet.
