Table Game Sucker Bets

Date Published: January 13, 2017

Online casinos offer a great way for players to enjoy the thrills of table and card games from home and these games come with a variety of betting options. Many games will even offer side bets so that players have more chances to generate payouts while they enjoy the standard game. However, a number of bets that are offered are considered to be sucker bets, those that have a high house edge and while they can offer outstanding payouts, they are often avoided by players at online casinos. Here, we discuss the common sucker bets that are found online and inform players of these bets so they are aware of them when they hit the tables and start wagering real money.

Roulette is a great game for most players because just about every bet in the game will have the same payout rate and house edge. With European Roulette, there is no way that a bet can be placed without having the same payout rate. However, with American Roulette, there is one bet that is different and this a cluster bet on 0,00, 1, 2 and 3. This is the worst bet that can be placed with American Roulette and is one that may attract players with a higher reward, but it also comes with a high house edge.

With Baccarat, there are three main bets that can be placed. These include the Banker Hand, Player Hand and a Tie. The Tie bet offers a great 8:1 payout rate, but the player odds are poor. In fact, players will lose this bet 84% of the time. The tie bet is one of the sucker bets in all casinos and this bet should be avoided at all costs, despite the attractive payouts it can offer. The house advantage for this bet ranges from 13% to 15%.

Blackjack also has some known sucker bets that players need to be aware of and avoid when at the tables. The main sucker bet is the surrender option. Many players will use this more often than they should, leading to more losses overall. The only time the surrender option should be used is if the player has a hard 16 and the dealer is holding a Ten or an Ace.
