Default If a poker site were to offer insurance on hands backed by the house

They would make an absolute killing.

Just thought you all needed to know that.

ugh, god I hope they never do that (tho agree they would make a HUUUGE killing), for one because it would slow down the hands, everytime some monkey goes all in and gets called, we gotta wait while they decide if they want insurance or not, and 2, it would add to the stupidity of the "its rigged!" people. Because they would just go on and on about how they set it up so you always get all in so they can do insurance. (the same morons who talk about how they purposly juice flops so more money goes in for rake, even tho the rake was capped PF).

Now the biggest killing a site would make is if they added a "toke the dealer" button. I cant even fathom how many millions they would make from retarded people believing it would increase their luck

Honestly, I'm surprised they haven't implemented this yet. Not one single site. Not even in the online casinos. Anyone want to venture a guess as to why not?

This would reduce tilt, which would be a bad thing for most winning players.

I'd love a rabbit hunting cam and struddle option.

The first would make sure people always chaise, cause "zomg, i could have hit".And the second would liven up the games.Hell, i'd even struddle from time to time.

This would be good, if you liked getting 30 hands an hour.

Honestly this idea was thought of several years ago and serious consideration was given. [img]/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
Also, the insurance idea as well. But as someone else mentioned, the time delay would be horrible.

Don't get me wrong I don't want the sites taking more money from the fish, but why would the time delay be so bad? Give them like 5 seconds or however long they give people to show a winning hand.

"Take insurance for $xxx?"

Yes - No

What's tough about that?

Because then the house would have an interest in the outcome of the hand. That is bad.
