• Online Casino Sucker Bets — Part 2

  • Progressive side bets: Casino games like Caribbean Stud Poker regularly have one of these. You generally lay a bet ($1 is the usual value) to try to win a side jackpot that can reach twenty-five thousand dollars. Though big jackpots like this are particularly tempting, they are also particularly complicated to succeed. You would need to get a Royal Flush in order to win this wager. Also, think about this- you play 20 hands and put the side wager each time. That’s 20 dollars you should have used towards the actual game bet in place of a sucker bet. Just think about what you could have been able to win at a wager with better odds employing that 20 dollars.
  • Single number wagers in Roulette: This is especially true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has two zeroes on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has only 1. This takes the overall house edge from 2percent with a single zero wheel to a huge 5percent in American. The single number wager has only a one in thirty eight chance of succeeding, which are very big odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red bets instead which have a much lower house advantage.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and regardless of how you gamble on it, the casino edge can be a huge twenty-five percent. Yes, that is not a typo. Due to the large set of numbers you must choose, it is not advisable to bet on Keno very much. A few times for entertainment, maybe. But don’t waste all your cash on it or you’ll immediately discover yourself broke.
