Net Casino Sucker Wagers — Part Two

[ English ]
  • Progressive side wagers: Casino games such as Caribbean Stud Poker often contain one of these. You typically lay a wager ($1 is the normal amount) to try to win a bonus jackpot that can reach $25,000. Though big jackpots like these are extremely tempting, they’re also particularly hard to win. You might have to hit a Royal Flush in order to succeed on this wager. Also, think about this- you wager 20 hands and place the side wager each time. That’s 20 dollars you could have used towards the actual game wager instead of a sucker bet. Picture what you might have been able to win at a bet with better odds utilizing that 20 dollars.
  • Single number wagers in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has 2 0’s on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has only one. This shifts the complete casino edge from 2.63percent with a single zero wheel to a huge five% in American. The individual number wager has only a 1 in thirty eight chance of winning, which are very long odds indeed. Bet on even-odd or black-red bets as a substitute which have a much lower house edge.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and regardless of how you wager on it, the house advantage can be a huge 25%. Yes, that is not a typo. Because of the large set of numbers you must pick, it isn’t advisable to gamble on Keno very much. A couple of times for fun, maybe. But don’t spend all your money on it or you will quickly discover yourself broke.
