Online Casino Sucker Wagers — Part One

  • Proposition bets in Craps: These Craps wagers basically means you’re betting that a specific thing may arise on the very next roll. For instance, you may make the ‘hard ways’ bet, which indicates that you’re wagering that the shooter will toss a four, six, eight, or ten by rolling a double. These bets offer a casino edge of anywhere from nine to elevenpercent. This is a massive house advantage, and it’s awfully rare that they hit.
  • Tie wager in Baccarat: This is a bet that neither the bank or the player will come out on top, but that the hands will tie. This is an exceedingly rare situation in online Baccarat, therefore the casino edge is high. At 14.1percent casino edge, this is the very definition of a sucker bet.
  • Insurance in Blackjack: Although chemin de fer has one of the lowest casino advantages (and there is also a lot of skill involved), this is a sucker wager. Dependent on how many decks of cards are being used and the rules of the table, the casino advantage of this is at least five percent, but can be as great as 14 percent. Only extremely accomplished card counters can make this bet work for them, and more often than not then it remains a sucker wager.
