Web Casino Sucker Wagers — Part 2

  • Progressive side wagers: Games like Caribbean Stud Poker often offer one of these. You usually put a wager ($1 is the normal value) to try to win a side jackpot that could be upwards of $25,000. Though huge jackpots like this are particularly alluring, they are also particularly hard to succeed. You might need to get a Royal Flush in order to win this bet. Also, picture this- you wager twenty hands and put the side wager each time. That’s twenty dollars you should have used towards the actual game wager in place of a sucker bet. Just think about what you could have been able to win at a bet with better odds employing that $20.
  • Individual number bets in Roulette: This is especially true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has two 0’s on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has just 1. This shifts the overall house advantage from 2% with one zero wheel to a huge 5% in American. The individual number bet has only a one in 38 chance of winning, which are very big odds indeed. Bet on even-odd or black-red wagers instead which have a much lower casino advantage.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and anyway you gamble on it, the house advantage can be a whopping 25%. Yes, that was not a typo. Because of the large amount of numbers you must choose, it isn’t advisable to gamble on Keno very much. A few times for fun, maybe. But do not spend all your money on it or you will quickly discover yourself beaten.
