Internet Casino Sucker Wagers — Part 2

  • Progressive side bets: Games like Caribbean Stud Poker often have one of these. You generally place a wager (a dollar is the usual value) to try to win a side jackpot that can reach $25,000. Although big jackpots like this are extremely appealing, they’re also particularly difficult to win. You would need to hit a Royal Flush in order to win this bet. Also, think about this- you wager 20 hands and place the side bet every time. That’s twenty dollars you should have used towards the actual game wager in place of a sucker bet. Picture what you could have been able to win at a bet with greater odds using that 20 dollars.
  • Individual number bets in Roulette: This is completely true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has two zeroes on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has only 1. This shifts the complete casino edge from two% with one zero wheel to a huge 5% in American. The individual number wager has only a one in 38 chance of winning, which are very big odds indeed. Bet on even-odd or black-red wagers as a substitute which have a much smaller casino edge.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and anyway you gamble on it, the casino advantage can be a huge 25%. Yes, that is not a error. Due to the huge amount of numbers you have to choose, it’s not advisable to play Keno to often. A number of times for enjoyment, maybe. But don’t spend all your cash on it or you will quickly find yourself broke.
