Web Casino Sucker Bets — Part II

  • Progressive side bets: Casino games such as Caribbean Stud Poker regularly have one of these. You generally lay a bet ($1 is the normal amt.) to attempt to win a side jackpot that can be upwards of $25,000. Although huge jackpots like these are particularly tempting, they are also very complicated to win. You might need to hit a Royal Flush in order to succeed on this wager. Also, think about this- you wager 20 hands and place the side bet every time. That is $20 you should have used towards the real game wager in place of a sucker wager. Picture what you could have been able to win at a wager with greater odds using that 20 dollars.
  • Individual number wagers in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has 2 0’s on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has only one. This shifts the complete house edge from 2percent with a single zero wheel to a huge 5.26% in American. The individual number bet has only a 1 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 smaller house advantage.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and regardless of how you gamble on it, the house advantage can be a whopping 25%. No, that is not a error. Due to the huge set of numbers you have to pick, it’s not recommended to wager on Keno to often. A few times for entertainment, perhaps. But do not waste all your money on it or you’ll quickly find yourself beaten.
