Web Casino Sucker Bets — Part Two

  • Progressive side bets: Games like Caribbean Stud Poker commonly contain one of these. You typically put a wager ($1 is the usual amount) to try to win a bonus jackpot that can be upwards of $25,000. Although huge jackpots like these are particularly tempting, they’re also incredibly hard to win. You would need to hit a Royal Flush in order to win this wager. Also, imagine this- you wager twenty hands and make the side wager every time. That is twenty dollars you could have used towards the real game bet instead of a sucker bet. Just think about what you could have been able to win at a wager with better odds using that twenty dollars.
  • Individual 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 one. This takes the complete house edge from 2.63% with one zero wheel to a whopping 5% in American. The one number bet has only a 1 in thirty eight chance of winning, which are very big odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red bets instead which have a much smaller casino edge.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and anyway you wager on it, the house edge can be a huge 25%. No, that is not a typo. Because of the large amount of numbers you have to choose, it isn’t recommended to bet on Keno very much. A few times for enjoyment, perhaps. But do not spend all your cash on it or you will quickly find yourself beaten.
