Net Casino Sucker Bets — Part Two

  • Progressive side wagers: Games like Caribbean Stud Poker often offer one of these. You normally place a bet (a dollar is the usual amount) to try to win a bonus jackpot that can be upwards of $25,000. Though huge jackpots like these are extremely tempting, they’re also incredibly hard to win. You might need to hit a Royal Flush in order to hit this bet. Also, imagine this- you play twenty hands and make the side wager each time. That’s 20 dollars you should have used towards the real game wager instead of a sucker wager. Picture what you could have been able to win at a wager with greater odds utilizing that twenty dollars.
  • Individual number wagers in Roulette: This is especially true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has 2 zeroes on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has just 1. This shifts the complete casino edge from 2.63percent with a single zero wheel to a huge 5.26% in American. The individual number wager has just a one in thirty eight chance of winning, which are very long odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red bets as a substitute which have a much smaller house advantage.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and anyway you wager on it, the house edge can be a huge 25%. No, that isn’t a typo. Due to the huge set of numbers you must choose, it is not advisable to gamble on Keno very much. A few times for enjoyment, maybe. But do not spend all your money on it or you’ll quickly find yourself broke.
