Aren't there any worse bonus bets on this game?

I realize that bad a house edge would make them redundant, but it's the "big money" bets that keeps the suckers betting.



Nope, as of my last visit in December there were no bonus bets. Don't worry, the table is located right next to the Big 6 "Fruit Wheel" and "Money Wheel", Three Card Poker, Texas Holdem Stud Poker, Let em Ride, 4 Card Poker, Carribbean Stud Poker, Red Dog, and Sic Bo, so all of the suckers will have no problem getting their fix.

The win loss % should be exactly equal. The house edge is just in the ties. The dealer is just as likely to beat you as you are to beat them, it's just the fact that the dealer is really "beating" you on "ties"

It's amazing what games people will play. I notice that Casino War is actually beginning to take hold in a few casinos and double-zero roulette (nearly everywhere has single zero roulette) is played. I think the problem is that "students" (by that I mean people aged in the teens rather than intelligent under-graduates) find such games easy and fun.

The single zero wheels often are not on the main floor and will usually have higher limits.
The roulette in AC returns half your even money bet on a roll of 0 or 00.
Similar to the "en prison" rule but with out imprisoning the bet.
I do agree that the general public is woefully undereducated (in general)
and specifically regarding probability math.

I have to say that Turning Stone Casino in Verona NY which this thread refers to
Has more than their fair share of carnival games. I think they even have keno.

At least they have a decent payable on the three card poker pair plus bet.
They still have the 40-30-6-4-1 payable with 2.32% HE instead of
The more common 40-30-6-3-1 payable with 7.68% HE.
I am sure this is an oversight given their love for games with a huge edge.

Oy! That is the worst even money bet I have heard of. By the way, I agree with the 11.265% house edge. I'll have to make a page for it on my Odds site, as a warning.

Here are the Turning Stone rules of the game.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

At least with ties in Casino War there's a second round... this an ugly game.

Ugly but simple. I don't really see how they could make it any simpler while reducing the house edge. My only guess would be to count ties as a push and charge a vig....
