Internet Casino Sucker Wagers — Part II

  • Progressive side wagers: Games such as Caribbean Stud Poker often offer one of these. You typically place a wager ($1 is the usual amount) to attempt to win a side jackpot that could be upwards of twenty-five thousand dollars. Although big jackpots like this are very tempting, they’re also very hard to win. You would need to hit a Royal Flush in order to hit this bet. Also, think about this- you wager twenty hands and put the side bet every time. That’s 20 dollars you could have used towards the real game bet in place of a sucker wager. Imagine what you might have been able to win at a wager with better odds employing that 20 dollars.
  • Individual number bets in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has 2 zeroes on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has only 1. This shifts the overall casino advantage from 2.63percent with one zero wheel to a whopping 5.26% in American. The one number bet has only a one in 38 chance of winning, which are very big odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red bets as a substitute which have a much lower casino edge.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and regardless of how you wager on it, the house advantage can be a huge 25%. No, that is not a typo. Due to the large set of numbers you have to choose, it isn’t recommended to wager on Keno very much. A couple of times for fun, maybe. But don’t waste all your cash on it or you’ll quickly discover yourself bankrupt.
