Online Casino Sucker Wagers — Part II

  • Progressive side bets: Casino games like Caribbean Stud Poker often offer one of these. You usually put a bet (a dollar is the normal amt.) to try to win a bonus jackpot that could be upwards of $25,000. Though huge jackpots like this are very tempting, they’re also particularly difficult to win. You might need to get a Royal Flush in order to succeed on this bet. Also, imagine this- you play twenty hands and place the side bet each time. That’s 20 dollars you should have used towards the real game bet instead of a sucker wager. Imagine 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 especially true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has 2 zeroes on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has just 1. This takes the overall house advantage from 2percent with one zero wheel to a huge five% in American. The single number bet has only a 1 in 38 chance of winning, which are very big odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red bets alternately which have a much lower house advantage.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and anyway you gamble on it, the house edge can be a huge 25%. No, that isn’t a error. Because of the large set of numbers you must select, it’s not advisable to play Keno very much. A couple of times for entertainment, perhaps. But don’t waste all your money on it or you’ll immediately discover yourself beaten.
