Web Casino Sucker Wagers — Part II

  • Progressive side bets: Casino games like Caribbean Stud Poker often contain one of these. You usually lay a bet ($1 is the usual value) to try to win a side jackpot that can be upwards of twenty-five thousand dollars. Though huge jackpots like this are extremely appealing, they’re also very complicated to succeed. You would need to hit a Royal Flush in order to win this wager. Also, picture this- you play twenty hands and lay the side bet each time. That is 20 dollars you could have used towards the actual game wager instead of a sucker bet. Just think about what you could have been able to win at a wager with greater odds using that $20.
  • Individual number wagers in Roulette: This is especially true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has two zeroes on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has just 1. This takes the overall casino advantage from two% with one zero wheel to a huge 5% in American. The individual number wager has just a 1 in thirty eight chance of winning, which are very big odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red wagers as a substitute which have a much lower casino edge.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and regardless of how you play it, the casino advantage can be a whopping 25%. No, that is not a error. Because of the huge set of numbers you have to pick, it’s not advisable to gamble on Keno to often. A few times for enjoyment, perhaps. But don’t waste all your money on it or you’ll immediately find yourself beaten.
