Internet Casino Sucker Bets — Part II

  • Progressive side wagers: Games like Caribbean Stud Poker often offer one of these. You typically put a bet (a dollar is the normal amount) to try to win a bonus jackpot that can be upwards of $25,000. Although huge jackpots like this are very alluring, they’re also very hard to win. You might have to hit a Royal Flush in order to hit this bet. Also, picture this- you wager twenty hands and make the side bet every time. That is $20 you could have used towards the real game wager instead of a sucker wager. Just think about what you could have been able to win at a bet with better odds utilizing that 20 dollars.
  • Single number wagers in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has 2 0’s on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has only 1. This takes the overall casino edge from 2percent with a single zero wheel to a huge 5.26% in American. The individual number bet has only a one in 38 chance of succeeding, which are very big odds indeed. Bet on even-odd or black-red bets instead which have a much smaller house advantage.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and regardless of how you wager on it, the casino advantage can be a whopping twenty-five percent. Yes, that is not a typo. Because of the huge amount of numbers you must select, it’s not recommended to bet on Keno very much. A few times for enjoyment, maybe. But don’t waste all your money on it or you will quickly discover yourself broke.
