Net Casino Sucker Wagers — Part 2

  • Progressive side bets: Games such as Caribbean Stud Poker regularly offer one of these. You generally place a bet (a dollar is the normal amt.) to try to win a side jackpot that could reach twenty-five thousand dollars. Although huge jackpots like this are particularly appealing, they are also incredibly difficult to win. You might need to hit a Royal Flush in order to win this wager. Also, think about this- you wager 20 hands and put the side wager each time. That is 20 dollars you could have used towards the real game wager instead of a sucker wager. Picture what you could have been able to win at a bet with more favorable odds employing that twenty dollars.
  • Individual number bets in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has 2 0’s on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has only 1. This takes the overall casino edge from two% with a single zero wheel to a huge fivepercent in American. The individual number bet has just a one in 38 chance of winning, which are very long odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red bets as a substitute which have a much lower house advantage.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and anyway you play it, the casino advantage can be a whopping 25%. No, that is not a typo. Due to the huge amount of numbers you must pick, it’s not advisable to bet on Keno very much. A couple of times for entertainment, maybe. But don’t spend all your cash on it or you’ll immediately discover yourself bankrupt.
