The Big 8 & Big 6 Bets

The Big 8 & 6 Bets pay 1:1 when either the 6 or the 8 is rolled before the 7 is rolled. This might sound like a sucker bet to gamblers in the know. That's because it is a sucker bet. The house edge on this wager is 9.09%.

This wager is marked by the words Big 8 and Big 6 on the craps table. Many casinos no longer offer this wager, because players do not make the wager that often. It's a good thing, and dice gamblers should avoid the Big 8&6 when they do encounter them.
