Web Casino Sucker Wagers — Part II

  • Progressive side wagers: Games like Caribbean Stud Poker commonly have one of these. You normally place a bet (a dollar is the normal amt.) to try to win a side jackpot that could be upwards of $25,000. Although big jackpots like these are particularly tempting, they are also particularly difficult to succeed. You might have to hit a Royal Flush in order to succeed on this wager. Also, imagine this- you wager 20 hands and make the side bet every time. That’s twenty dollars you could have used towards the real game wager instead of a sucker bet. Just think about what you might have been able to win at a wager with greater odds utilizing that 20 dollars.
  • Single number bets in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has 2 zeroes on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has only 1. This shifts the complete house edge from 2.63% with one zero wheel to a huge 5percent in American. The single number bet has only a one in thirty eight chance of winning, which are very long odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red bets alternately which have a much smaller house edge.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and regardless of how you bet on it, the casino advantage can be a whopping 25%. Yes, that isn’t a typo. Because of the huge set of numbers you have to select, it is not advisable to play Keno very much. A number of times for enjoyment, maybe. But don’t spend all your cash on it or you will quickly discover yourself broke.
