Web Casino Sucker Wagers — Part Two

  • Progressive side wagers: Games such as Caribbean Stud Poker regularly have one of these. You usually lay a wager ($1 is the usual value) to try to win a side jackpot that can reach twenty-five thousand dollars. Though huge jackpots like these are particularly alluring, they are also particularly complicated to win. You would have to hit a Royal Flush in order to succeed on this wager. Also, picture this- you wager 20 hands and place the side bet every time. That is twenty dollars you could have used towards the real game wager instead of a sucker wager. Just think about what you might have been able to win at a wager with greater odds using that twenty dollars.
  • Single number wagers in Roulette: This is especially true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has two zeroes on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has only 1. This takes the overall house advantage from 2.63percent with a single zero wheel to a whopping 5.26% in American. The single number wager has only a one in thirty eight chance of winning, which are very big odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red wagers instead which have a much lower house advantage.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and regardless of how you wager on it, the casino advantage can be a whopping 25%. Yes, that isn’t a error. Because of the large amount of numbers you must choose, it isn’t recommended to bet on Keno very much. A few times for entertainment, maybe. But do not spend all your money on it or you will quickly find yourself beaten.
