Internet Casino Sucker Wagers — Part II

  • Progressive side wagers: Games such as Caribbean Stud Poker regularly offer one of these. You typically lay a bet (a dollar is the normal amt.) to attempt to win a side jackpot that could be upwards of twenty-five thousand dollars. Though huge jackpots like these are extremely alluring, they’re also particularly complicated to succeed. You might need to get a Royal Flush in order to win this bet. Also, imagine this- you play twenty hands and place the side wager every time. That is $20 you could have used towards the actual game bet instead of a sucker bet. Picture what you could have been able to win at a bet with better odds utilizing that $20.
  • Individual number bets in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has 2 zeroes on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has only 1. This shifts the complete house advantage from 2percent with a single zero wheel to a whopping 5percent in American. The one number wager has just a 1 in 38 chance of succeeding, which are very long odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red bets alternately which have a much lower casino edge.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and anyway you play it, the house advantage can be a huge 25%. No, that was not a error. Because of the large amount of numbers you have to pick, it is not advisable to wager on Keno to often. A number of times for fun, maybe. But do not waste all your money on it or you’ll immediately find yourself broke.
