• Web Casino Sucker Bets — Part II

  • Progressive side bets: Games like Caribbean Stud Poker commonly offer one of these. You normally lay a bet ($1 is the normal value) to attempt to win a side jackpot that could reach twenty-five thousand dollars. Though big jackpots like this are very tempting, they are also incredibly hard to succeed. You might have to hit a Royal Flush in order to hit this wager. Also, picture this- you play 20 hands and lay the side bet each time. That’s twenty dollars you could have used towards the real game wager instead of a sucker bet. Just think about what you might have been able to win at a bet with more favorable odds using that 20 dollars.
  • Single number bets in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has 2 zeroes on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has only one. This takes the complete casino advantage from two% with a single zero wheel to a whopping fivepercent in American. The one number wager has just a 1 in 38 chance of succeeding, which are very big odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red bets as a substitute which have a much lower casino advantage.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and regardless of how you wager on it, the casino edge can be a whopping 25%. Yes, that isn’t a typo. Because of the large set of numbers you must select, it isn’t advisable to play Keno to often. A few times for enjoyment, perhaps. But don’t spend all your money on it or you will quickly discover yourself broke.
