Web Casino Sucker Bets — Part II

  • Progressive side bets: Casino games such as Caribbean Stud Poker commonly contain one of these. You normally lay a bet ($1 is the normal amount) to try to win a side jackpot that could reach $25,000. Though big jackpots like this are particularly tempting, they’re also incredibly complicated to win. You would need to get a Royal Flush in order to hit this wager. Also, imagine this- you play twenty hands and place the side wager every time. That’s $20 you should 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 greater odds utilizing that 20 dollars.
  • Single number wagers in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has 2 0’s on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has just 1. This takes the overall house edge from 2% with one zero wheel to a huge 5% in American. The single number bet has just a one in 38 chance of winning, which are very big odds indeed. Bet on even-odd or black-red bets as a substitute which have a much lower house edge.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and regardless of how you gamble on it, the casino advantage can be a whopping twenty-five percent. No, that is not a typo. Due to the large set of numbers you have to pick, it isn’t advisable to wager on Keno very much. A number of times for fun, maybe. But don’t spend all your money on it or you’ll immediately find yourself beaten.
