Web Casino Sucker Wagers — Part Two

  • Progressive side wagers: Casino games like Caribbean Stud Poker regularly have one of these. You typically put a bet ($1 is the usual value) to attempt to win a side jackpot that can be upwards of twenty-five thousand dollars. Although huge jackpots like this are very alluring, they’re also incredibly difficult to succeed. You might have to get a Royal Flush in order to hit this bet. Also, imagine this- you play 20 hands and lay the side bet every time. That is $20 you could have used towards the actual game wager in place of a sucker wager. Just think about what you might have been able to win at a bet with greater odds utilizing that twenty dollars.
  • Single number bets 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 overall house edge from twopercent with one zero wheel to a whopping 5% in American. The single number bet has only a one in 38 chance of winning, which are very long odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red wagers alternately which have a much lower casino advantage.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and anyway you bet on it, the house advantage can be a huge twenty-five percent. Yes, that isn’t a typo. Because of the huge amount of numbers you have to select, it isn’t recommended to bet on Keno very much. A few times for entertainment, maybe. But don’t spend all your cash on it or you will quickly find yourself bankrupt.
