Net Casino Sucker Bets — Part II

  • Progressive side wagers: Casino games like Caribbean Stud Poker often offer one of these. You typically place a wager (a dollar is the normal amount) to attempt to win a bonus jackpot that can reach twenty-five thousand dollars. Though huge jackpots like this are very appealing, they are also incredibly difficult to succeed. You would need to get a Royal Flush in order to win this bet. Also, think about this- you wager twenty hands and place the side wager every time. That is $20 you should have used towards the real game bet instead of a sucker wager. Picture what you could have been able to win at a wager with more favorable odds using that $20.
  • Individual number wagers in Roulette: This is especially true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has two 0’s on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has only 1. This shifts the complete house advantage from 2.63percent with one zero wheel to a whopping 5.26% in American. The single number wager has only a 1 in 38 chance of winning, which are very big odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red bets alternately which have a much lower casino edge.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and regardless of how you wager on it, the house edge can be a whopping twenty-five percent. Yes, that wasn’t a error. Due to the huge set of numbers you must choose, it is not advisable to wager on Keno very much. A number of times for enjoyment, perhaps. But do not spend all your money on it or you will quickly discover yourself beaten.
