Online Casino Sucker Wagers — Part 2

  • Progressive side bets: Games such as Caribbean Stud Poker often have one of these. You typically put a wager (a dollar is the normal amount) to try to win a bonus jackpot that can reach twenty-five thousand dollars. Though big jackpots like this are very tempting, they’re also incredibly difficult to succeed. You would have to hit a Royal Flush in order to succeed on this bet. Also, picture this- you play 20 hands and lay the side bet every time. That is $20 you could have used towards the actual game wager instead of a sucker bet. Imagine 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. Why? American Roulette has two 0’s on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has just 1. This shifts the overall house edge from 2.63percent with one zero wheel to a huge five% in American. The one number wager has just a one in 38 chance of winning, which are very long odds indeed. Bet on even-odd or black-red wagers alternately which have a much smaller house edge.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and regardless of how you gamble on it, the casino advantage can be a huge 25%. Yes, that is not a typo. Due to the huge set of numbers you must choose, it’s not recommended to gamble on Keno very much. A few times for entertainment, maybe. But don’t waste all your cash on it or you will quickly discover yourself broke.
