Online Casino Sucker Bets — Part Two

  • Progressive side wagers: Games such as Caribbean Stud Poker commonly have one of these. You usually put a wager (a dollar is the usual amount) to attempt to win a bonus jackpot that can be upwards of twenty-five thousand dollars. Although big jackpots like this are very alluring, they’re also particularly complicated to succeed. You would have to get a Royal Flush in order to succeed on this bet. Also, imagine this- you play 20 hands and lay the side bet each time. That’s 20 dollars you should have used towards the real game bet in place of a sucker bet. Imagine what you might have been able to win at a wager with better odds using that twenty dollars.
  • Single number bets in Roulette: This is especially true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has 2 0’s on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has only one. This shifts the complete casino advantage from 2percent with one zero wheel to a whopping 5.26% in American. The individual number bet has just a 1 in thirty eight chance of winning, which are very big odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red bets instead which have a much lower house edge.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and regardless of how you play it, the house advantage can be a huge 25%. No, that isn’t a typo. Because of the large set of numbers you have to pick, it is not recommended to bet on Keno very much. A number of times for entertainment, perhaps. But do not spend all your money on it or you will quickly discover yourself broke.
