Internet Casino Sucker Bets — Part Two

  • Progressive side wagers: Casino games such as Caribbean Stud Poker often have one of these. You generally lay a wager (a dollar is the normal amount) to try to win a side jackpot that can reach $25,000. Although huge jackpots like this are very appealing, they are also particularly difficult to succeed. You would need to hit a Royal Flush in order to succeed on this bet. Also, picture this- you wager 20 hands and put the side wager every time. That’s 20 dollars you could have used towards the actual game wager in place of a sucker bet. Picture what you might have been able to win at a wager with better odds using that $20.
  • Individual 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 only one. This shifts the overall house advantage from 2.63% with a single zero wheel to a whopping 5.26percent in American. The one number bet has only a 1 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 casino edge.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and anyway you gamble on it, the house advantage can be a whopping 25%. Yes, that isn’t a error. Because of the huge amount of numbers you must choose, it’s not advisable to bet on Keno very much. A couple of times for fun, perhaps. But don’t waste all your money on it or you will immediately discover yourself broke.
