Web Casino Sucker Wagers — Part II

  • Progressive side bets: Games such as Caribbean Stud Poker often offer one of these. You typically place a wager ($1 is the normal value) to try to win a bonus jackpot that can be upwards of twenty-five thousand dollars. Although huge jackpots like these are very tempting, they’re also very complicated to succeed. You would need to hit a Royal Flush in order to win this wager. Also, imagine this- you play twenty hands and make the side wager each time. That is twenty dollars you could have used towards the real game wager in place of a sucker wager. Just think about what you might have been able to win at a bet with more favorable odds using that twenty dollars.
  • Individual number bets in Roulette: This is completely true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has two zeroes on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has only one. This shifts the overall house advantage from 2% with one zero wheel to a whopping five% in American. The one number bet has only a 1 in thirty eight chance of succeeding, which are very long odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red wagers alternately which have a much lower house advantage.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and anyway you gamble on it, the casino edge can be a huge 25%. No, that wasn’t a error. Due to the large amount of numbers you have to pick, it is not recommended to play Keno to often. A number of times for entertainment, perhaps. But do not waste all your cash on it or you’ll quickly find yourself beaten.
