I am looking for the house edge in Dragon Tiger game in the following cases:

Dragon / Tiger bet in case of Tie bet collect all, not only half

Suited Tie with payment odds of 25 to 1, 30 to 1 and 40 to 1

Thank you,

By "collect all", I'm assuming you mean the entire bet will be collected by the house.

Lose 1/2, HE = 3.73%

Lose all just doubles the HE, because the outright win-loss has equal probability. So Lose all HE = -0.074698, or 7.47%

Suited tie: 50 to 1 = .843373
So
40:1 = .674699
30:1 = .506024
25:1 = .421687

Add each of these to the lose amount of - .983133 to get your house edge.

50:1 HE -.135979 or 13.98%

40:1 = -0.308434 or 30.84%
30:1 = -0.477109 or 47.71%
25:1 = -0.561446 or 56.14%
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.
