The Big 6 and Big 8 bets have seemingly good payouts and when you’re first starting out, putting all your money on the Pass line can seem intimidating. I mean, what are the chances that the shooter will roll a 6 before he rolls a 7. But don’t fall for it! The Big 6 and 8 bets are known as sucker bets and are put o the table to catch inexperienced players. The house edge on the Big 6 or 8 is about 9% whereas the regular is just 1.5%. Essentially, while they seem like the same bet, you lose out on way more money. It is definitely not wise to bet on the Big 6 and 8, no matter how big and rewarding the markings look on the table.
