Online Casino Sucker Wagers — Part Two

  • Progressive side bets: Casino games like Caribbean Stud Poker often have one of these. You usually place a wager ($1 is the usual amount) to attempt to win a side jackpot that could reach $25,000. Though huge jackpots like this are very tempting, they’re also incredibly hard to succeed. You might have to hit a Royal Flush in order to hit this bet. Also, imagine this- you wager 20 hands and lay the side bet each time. That’s twenty dollars you could have used towards the actual game bet in place of a sucker wager. Imagine what you might have been able to win at a wager with greater odds employing that twenty dollars.
  • Individual number wagers in Roulette: This is especially true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has two 0’s on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has just 1. This takes the overall house edge from 2% with a single zero wheel to a huge fivepercent in American. The single number wager has just a one 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 lower house advantage.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and regardless of how you bet on it, the house advantage can be a huge 25%. No, that is not a typo. Due to the huge amount of numbers you must select, it isn’t recommended to bet on Keno very much. A number of times for fun, perhaps. But don’t spend all your money on it or you will quickly find yourself beaten.
