Web Casino Sucker Bets — Part II

  • Progressive side bets: Games such as Caribbean Stud Poker often contain one of these. You normally place a bet (a dollar is the normal amt.) to try to win a bonus jackpot that can reach twenty-five thousand dollars. Though big jackpots like this are extremely alluring, they are also particularly hard to win. You might need to get a Royal Flush in order to hit this wager. Also, think about this- you play twenty hands and lay the side wager each time. That’s 20 dollars you should have used towards the actual game wager in place of a sucker wager. Picture what you might have been able to win at a bet with more favorable odds utilizing that $20.
  • Single number bets in Roulette: This is completely true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has 2 zeroes on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has just one. This takes the complete house edge from 2% with a single zero wheel to a huge fivepercent in American. The single number wager has only a one in thirty eight chance of succeeding, which are very big odds indeed. Bet on even-odd or black-red wagers as a substitute which have a much smaller house advantage.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and anyway you gamble on it, the casino edge can be a huge twenty-five percent. No, that wasn’t a typo. Because of the large set of numbers you have to select, it’s not recommended to play Keno very much. A couple of times for enjoyment, perhaps. But don’t waste all your money on it or you will immediately find yourself beaten.
