Net Casino Sucker Wagers — Part II

  • Progressive side bets: Casino games like Caribbean Stud Poker commonly contain one of these. You typically put a bet (a dollar is the usual value) to attempt to win a bonus jackpot that could be upwards of twenty-five thousand dollars. Although huge jackpots like this are particularly alluring, they’re also incredibly hard to succeed. You might need to hit a Royal Flush in order to win this bet. Also, think about this- you play twenty hands and make the side bet every time. That is twenty dollars you should have used towards the actual game bet instead of a sucker bet. Picture what you could have been able to win at a wager with better odds using that 20 dollars.
  • Single number bets in Roulette: This is completely true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has 2 0’s on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has only one. This shifts the overall casino edge from 2percent with a single zero wheel to a whopping five% in American. The individual number wager has only a one in thirty eight chance of winning, which are very long odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red wagers instead which have a much smaller casino edge.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and regardless of how you bet on it, the house edge can be a whopping 25%. Yes, that is not a error. Due to the large set of numbers you must choose, it’s not advisable to wager on Keno very much. A number of times for enjoyment, maybe. But don’t waste all your cash on it or you’ll quickly discover yourself broke.
