Online Casino Sucker Wagers — Part II

  • Progressive side bets: Casino games like Caribbean Stud Poker commonly offer one of these. You typically lay a wager ($1 is the usual value) to try to win a bonus jackpot that can reach $25,000. Although big jackpots like this are extremely tempting, they’re also incredibly complicated to win. You might need to get a Royal Flush in order to succeed on this wager. Also, imagine this- you play 20 hands and place the side bet every time. That’s $20 you should have used towards the real game wager in place of a sucker wager. Just think about what you might have been able to win at a wager with more favorable odds utilizing that 20 dollars.
  • Individual number wagers in Roulette: This is completely true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has 2 0’s on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has just 1. This shifts the overall house advantage from twopercent with a single zero wheel to a whopping 5.26% in American. The single number wager has only a 1 in thirty eight chance of winning, which are very long odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red bets as a substitute which have a much smaller house edge.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and regardless of how you gamble on it, the house advantage can be a whopping twenty-five percent. No, that is not a error. Due to the huge set of numbers you have to select, it isn’t advisable to gamble on Keno very much. A few times for entertainment, perhaps. But do not waste all your money on it or you’ll quickly find yourself beaten.
