Net Casino Sucker Wagers — Part II

  • Progressive side wagers: Games like Caribbean Stud Poker often offer one of these. You normally lay a bet ($1 is the normal value) to try to win a side jackpot that can reach twenty-five thousand dollars. Although huge jackpots like these are particularly appealing, they’re also very difficult to win. You would need to get a Royal Flush in order to hit this wager. Also, picture this- you play 20 hands and make the side bet every time. That’s twenty dollars you could have used towards the actual game bet instead of a sucker bet. Just think about what you might have been able to win at a bet with better odds using that 20 dollars.
  • Single number bets in Roulette: This is completely true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has 2 0’s on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has just one. This shifts the complete house advantage from 2percent with a single zero wheel to a whopping 5% in American. The one number wager has just a one in thirty eight chance of succeeding, which are very big odds indeed. Bet on even-odd or black-red bets as a substitute which have a much smaller casino edge.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and regardless of how you gamble on it, the casino edge can be a huge twenty-five percent. No, that is not a error. Due to the large amount of numbers you have to select, it’s not recommended to play Keno very much. A number of times for entertainment, maybe. But do not spend all your cash on it or you will immediately discover yourself beaten.
