Internet Casino Sucker Bets — Part II

  • Progressive side bets: Games like Caribbean Stud Poker commonly have one of these. You typically place a bet (a dollar is the normal amount) to attempt to win a side jackpot that can be upwards of $25,000. Although huge jackpots like this are very tempting, they’re also particularly complicated to win. You would have to hit a Royal Flush in order to succeed on this wager. Also, imagine this- you play 20 hands and make the side bet every time. That’s $20 you should have used towards the actual game bet in place of a sucker wager. Just think about what you might have been able to win at a wager with better odds utilizing that $20.
  • Individual number bets in Roulette: This is especially true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has 2 0’s on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has only one. This shifts the overall casino advantage from two% with a single zero wheel to a huge fivepercent in American. The one number bet has just a one in 38 chance of winning, which are very big odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red wagers as a substitute which have a much lower house edge.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and regardless of how you gamble on it, the house edge can be a huge twenty-five percent. Yes, that isn’t a typo. Due to the huge set of numbers you have to select, it isn’t advisable to gamble on Keno to often. A few times for enjoyment, maybe. But do not waste all your cash on it or you will immediately discover yourself bankrupt.
