Online Casino Sucker Bets — Part II

  • Progressive side wagers: Casino games such as Caribbean Stud Poker regularly have one of these. You usually place a wager ($1 is the usual value) to try to win a side jackpot that could reach $25,000. Although big jackpots like this are extremely tempting, they’re also incredibly difficult to succeed. You would have to hit a Royal Flush in order to succeed on this wager. Also, imagine this- you wager 20 hands and put the side wager each time. That’s $20 you should have used towards the actual game bet in place of a sucker wager. Just think about what you might have been able to win at a wager with greater odds utilizing that 20 dollars.
  • Individual number bets in Roulette: This is especially true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has two 0’s on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has just 1. This takes the complete casino advantage from 2.63percent with a single zero wheel to a huge 5.26percent in American. The single number wager has only a 1 in thirty eight chance of succeeding, which are very long odds indeed. Bet on even-odd or black-red bets alternately which have a much smaller casino advantage.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and anyway you bet on it, the casino edge can be a huge 25%. Yes, that was not a typo. Because of the large set of numbers you must choose, it’s not advisable to bet on Keno to often. A number of times for entertainment, maybe. But don’t spend all your cash on it or you will quickly find yourself broke.
