Internet Casino Sucker Bets — Part II

  • Progressive side wagers: Casino games like Caribbean Stud Poker regularly have one of these. You usually place a wager ($1 is the usual amount) to attempt to win a bonus jackpot that can reach twenty-five thousand dollars. Though huge jackpots like this are extremely appealing, they are also very difficult to win. You would need to get a Royal Flush in order to win this bet. Also, picture this- you play 20 hands and lay the side wager each time. That’s $20 you should have used towards the actual game wager in place of a sucker wager. Picture what you could have been able to win at a wager with better odds using that twenty dollars.
  • Individual number bets in Roulette: This is especially true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has 2 zeroes on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has just 1. This takes the complete house edge from 2percent with a single zero wheel to a whopping 5percent in American. The one number bet has only a one in thirty eight chance of winning, which are very long odds indeed. Bet on even-odd or black-red bets alternately which have a much lower house advantage.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and anyway you play it, the casino edge can be a whopping twenty-five percent. No, that isn’t a error. Because of the huge set of numbers you have to select, it’s not recommended to gamble on Keno very much. A few times for fun, perhaps. But don’t waste all your cash on it or you’ll immediately find yourself broke.
