Internet Casino Sucker Wagers — Part 2

  • Progressive side wagers: Games like Caribbean Stud Poker commonly offer one of these. You typically place a bet (a dollar is the usual amt.) to attempt to win a side jackpot that could be upwards of $25,000. Though huge jackpots like this are extremely appealing, they’re also particularly complicated to win. You would need to hit a Royal Flush in order to succeed on this bet. Also, picture this- you wager 20 hands and make the side bet each time. That is twenty dollars you could have used towards the real game bet instead of a sucker bet. Just think about what you could have been able to win at a wager with greater odds utilizing that 20 dollars.
  • Single number wagers in Roulette: This is especially true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has two zeroes on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has only one. This shifts the overall casino edge from twopercent with a single zero wheel to a whopping five% in American. The individual number wager has just a 1 in 38 chance of winning, which are very long odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red wagers instead which have a much lower house advantage.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and anyway you wager on it, the casino advantage can be a whopping twenty-five percent. No, that is not a typo. Due to the large amount of numbers you have to pick, it is not recommended to wager on Keno very much. A couple of times for enjoyment, perhaps. But do not waste all your cash on it or you will quickly discover yourself bankrupt.
