Web Casino Sucker Bets — Part II

  • Progressive side bets: Casino games like Caribbean Stud Poker commonly have one of these. You typically put a bet (a dollar is the normal value) to attempt to win a bonus jackpot that can be upwards of $25,000. Though big jackpots like these are extremely tempting, they are also incredibly difficult to win. You would need to get a Royal Flush in order to win this bet. Also, imagine this- you play 20 hands and put the side bet each time. That is $20 you should have used towards the actual game bet in place of a sucker wager. Picture what you might have been able to win at a wager with greater odds using that $20.
  • Individual number wagers in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has two zeroes on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has only 1. This shifts the complete casino edge from 2.63% with a single zero wheel to a whopping 5.26percent in American. The one number wager has just a 1 in 38 chance of winning, which are very big odds indeed. Bet on even-odd or black-red bets instead which have a much lower house advantage.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and anyway you wager on it, the house advantage can be a whopping 25%. Yes, that isn’t a error. Because of the huge amount of numbers you have to choose, it’s not advisable to gamble on Keno to often. A few times for fun, maybe. But do not waste all your money on it or you will immediately discover yourself bankrupt.
