There are many great bets you can make at the casino, but there are also dumb bets that you should stay away from. For example, Big 6 or 8 in Craps is a wasted bet because the payouts for a regular 6 or 8 bet are much better. The same goes for going to war in Casino War. If you have the same card, it is better that you hand half of your bet. That’s because you bet $ 5, now you have to put another $ 5. If you win, you will win $ 5. But technically you have bet $ 10 to win $ 5, which means you get 1: 2 payouts, not 2: 1 payouts.
