Online Casino Sucker Wagers — Part Two

  • Progressive side bets: Casino games such as Caribbean Stud Poker commonly offer one of these. You usually lay a bet (a dollar is the usual value) to try to win a side jackpot that can reach twenty-five thousand dollars. Though big jackpots like these are particularly tempting, they are also very complicated to succeed. You might need to get a Royal Flush in order to hit this wager. Also, picture this- you play 20 hands and lay the side bet every time. That’s $20 you should have used towards the real game wager instead of a sucker bet. Picture what you might have been able to win at a wager with more favorable odds using that 20 dollars.
  • Individual number bets in Roulette: This is especially true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has 2 0’s on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has only 1. This takes the overall house advantage from two% with a single zero wheel to a huge 5% in American. The single number bet has only a one in 38 chance of winning, which are very big odds indeed. Bet on even-odd or black-red bets instead which have a much smaller house advantage.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and anyway you gamble on it, the casino advantage can be a huge 25%. No, that wasn’t a error. Because of the large set of numbers you have to choose, it’s not advisable to bet on Keno to often. A couple of times for fun, perhaps. But do not spend all your cash on it or you will immediately discover yourself bankrupt.
