Online Casino Sucker Wagers — Part 2

  • Progressive side wagers: Casino games such as Caribbean Stud Poker commonly contain one of these. You usually lay a bet ($1 is the usual amt.) to try to win a bonus jackpot that could be upwards of $25,000. Though big jackpots like these are extremely appealing, they are also incredibly difficult to win. You might need to get a Royal Flush in order to hit this bet. Also, think about this- you wager twenty hands and place the side bet every time. That is 20 dollars you should have used towards the actual game bet in place of a sucker bet. Imagine what you might have been able to win at a bet with more favorable odds employing that 20 dollars.
  • Individual number bets in Roulette: This is completely true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has 2 zeroes on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has just one. This takes the complete casino edge from two% with one zero wheel to a huge five% in American. The single number bet has only a one in thirty eight chance of succeeding, which are very big odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red wagers instead which have a much smaller house edge.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and anyway you bet on it, the house advantage can be a whopping twenty-five percent. Yes, that wasn’t a error. Because of the huge set of numbers you must select, it isn’t recommended to play Keno to often. A number of times for fun, perhaps. But do not waste all your money on it or you’ll immediately discover yourself beaten.
