Online Casino Sucker Wagers — Part Two

  • Progressive side wagers: Games like Caribbean Stud Poker commonly offer one of these. You typically put a bet (a dollar is the normal amt.) to try to win a side jackpot that could reach twenty-five thousand dollars. Although big jackpots like these are very appealing, they are also incredibly hard to win. You would have to get a Royal Flush in order to succeed on this bet. Also, think about this- you wager twenty hands and lay the side bet each time. That is twenty dollars you should have used towards the real game bet in place of a sucker wager. Just think about what you might have been able to win at a wager with more favorable odds employing that 20 dollars.
  • Single number wagers in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has two zeroes on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has only 1. This shifts the overall house edge from 2.63percent with a single zero wheel to a whopping 5.26% in American. The single number wager has only a 1 in thirty eight chance of winning, which are very long odds indeed. Bet on even-odd or black-red bets as a substitute which have a much smaller casino edge.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and anyway you wager on it, the house edge can be a whopping twenty-five percent. Yes, that isn’t a typo. Because of the large amount of numbers you have to pick, it isn’t advisable to wager on Keno very much. A number of times for entertainment, perhaps. But don’t spend all your money on it or you’ll quickly find yourself beaten.
