Net Casino Sucker Bets — Part Two

  • Progressive side wagers: Casino games like Caribbean Stud Poker often contain one of these. You typically place a wager ($1 is the usual value) to try to win a side jackpot that could reach $25,000. Although big jackpots like these are very alluring, they are also particularly hard to succeed. You would have to get a Royal Flush in order to win this wager. Also, think about this- you play twenty hands and make the side bet every time. That’s twenty dollars you could have used towards the real game bet in place of a sucker wager. Picture what you might have been able to win at a bet with greater odds employing that twenty dollars.
  • Single number bets in Roulette: This is especially true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has 2 zeroes on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has only 1. This takes the complete house edge from two% with one zero wheel to a whopping fivepercent in American. The individual number wager has only a 1 in 38 chance of winning, which are very long odds indeed. Bet on even-odd or black-red wagers alternately which have a much smaller house advantage.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and regardless of how you gamble on it, the house advantage can be a huge 25%. No, that isn’t a error. Due to the huge amount of numbers you must pick, it’s not advisable to bet on Keno to often. A number of times for entertainment, perhaps. But do not waste all your cash on it or you’ll immediately find yourself bankrupt.
