Web Casino Sucker Bets — Part 2

  • Progressive side wagers: Casino games like Caribbean Stud Poker regularly have one of these. You generally lay a wager (a dollar is the normal amount) to try to win a side jackpot that could reach twenty-five thousand dollars. Although huge jackpots like this are extremely tempting, they’re also particularly hard to win. You might need to hit a Royal Flush in order to hit this wager. Also, picture this- you wager 20 hands and put the side wager every time. That is 20 dollars you should have used towards the real game wager in place of a sucker bet. Imagine what you might have been able to win at a bet with better odds using that twenty dollars.
  • Individual number bets in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has two 0’s on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has just one. This takes the overall house edge from 2% with one zero wheel to a whopping 5.26% in American. The single number bet has just a one in 38 chance of winning, which are very long odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red wagers alternately which have a much smaller casino advantage.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and anyway you gamble on it, the casino advantage can be a whopping twenty-five percent. Yes, that was not a error. Due to the large amount of numbers you must pick, it isn’t advisable to play Keno very much. A couple of times for fun, perhaps. But don’t waste all your money on it or you’ll quickly discover yourself bankrupt.
