Online Casino Sucker Wagers — Part 2

  • Progressive side wagers: Casino games like Caribbean Stud Poker often offer one of these. You generally lay a bet ($1 is the usual amt.) to try to win a side jackpot that could reach twenty-five thousand dollars. Although huge jackpots like this are very alluring, they’re also very hard to succeed. You might have to get a Royal Flush in order to hit this bet. Also, think about this- you wager 20 hands and make the side bet every time. That is $20 you should have used towards the real game bet instead of a sucker wager. Just think about what you could have been able to win at a bet with better odds employing that 20 dollars.
  • Single number bets in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has two zeroes on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has only one. This shifts the overall house edge from two% with one zero wheel to a whopping 5.26% in American. The single number wager has just a 1 in 38 chance of winning, which are very big odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red wagers as a substitute which have a much lower house advantage.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and anyway you bet on it, the casino edge can be a huge 25%. Yes, that was not a error. Because of the huge set of numbers you must select, it’s not recommended to wager on Keno to often. A number of times for entertainment, maybe. But do not spend all your cash on it or you’ll immediately discover yourself broke.
