Net Casino Sucker Wagers — Part II

  • Progressive side bets: Casino games such as Caribbean Stud Poker regularly offer one of these. You usually put a bet (a dollar is the normal amount) to attempt to win a side jackpot that could reach $25,000. Although huge jackpots like this are very tempting, they’re also very difficult to win. You would have to hit a Royal Flush in order to hit this bet. Also, imagine this- you play twenty hands and put the side wager every time. That’s $20 you should have used towards the real game wager in place of a sucker wager. Picture what you might have been able to win at a wager with greater odds using that 20 dollars.
  • Individual number wagers in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has 2 zeroes on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has just 1. This takes the overall house edge from two% with a single zero wheel to a huge 5.26percent in American. The one number wager has just a 1 in 38 chance of winning, which are very long odds indeed. Bet on even-odd or black-red bets alternately which have a much smaller house edge.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and anyway you gamble on it, the casino edge can be a whopping twenty-five percent. Yes, that is not a error. Due to the large set of numbers you must pick, it’s not advisable to gamble on Keno very much. A few times for fun, perhaps. But don’t spend all your cash on it or you will immediately find yourself beaten.
