Saw this in Primm, but the table was empty with no players.
Seemed like when the dealer showed a 2-6 you can place a bet that the dealer will bust.
Anyone familiar with it?

Very common sidebet in vegas. I've talked about this already. It's a brilliant sidebet from the casinos perspective because of the misconception of dealer bust rates in blackjack. The dealer will bust around 35-43% of the time with the worst percentage being the 2 upcard and the 5 upcard being the best chance of a dealer bust at 43% slightly beating out the upcard of a 6.. If you're counting, even at a True count of +5, the percentages will still be around a 38 to 47% chance of a dealer bust with again the 2 being the worst and the 5 being the best chance at a bust slightly edging out the 6 once again. These percentages seem to be for a S17 game though or else because I would imagine the dealer 6 would be the highest chance for a bust.

Because of the 1:1 payout on this sidebet, it's a -EV bet. Not worth your time unless you can get holecard information.
Any private business open to the PUBLIC (ie. droned out casinos) cannot have a criminal trespass enforced against an individual without GOOD CAUSE (Disruptive or Disorderly conduct). You will never go to prison for being thrown out of a casino for legal advantage play and then returning because it's simply unconstitutional 'as applied' to the individual. 'As applied' constitutional issues must FIRST be raised in DISTRICT COURT (trial court) to have it thrown out. You CANNOT raise it on APPEAL This is the best kept secret in the world of casinos not just in Vegas but everywhere in the country. Thank me later.

Raise the Roof plays on the same psychological bias that the dealer busts more than 50% on some upcards. Wizard of Odds reviewed the game. You can search for that page if you want more information.

How can I get the job of being the one who invents/creates these nutty side bets? Can I be the one who thinks up the new carnival games too?
