• Net Casino Sucker Wagers — Part II

  • Progressive side bets: Casino games like Caribbean Stud Poker regularly contain one of these. You usually put a bet ($1 is the usual amount) to try to win a side jackpot that can reach $25,000. Though big jackpots like this are very appealing, they’re also particularly hard to win. You would have to hit a Royal Flush in order to win this wager. Also, think about this- you play 20 hands and make the side wager every time. That’s twenty dollars you should have used towards the actual game wager instead of a sucker bet. Just think about what you could have been able to win at a wager with better odds employing that twenty dollars.
  • Individual number bets in Roulette: This is especially true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has 2 zeroes on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has only 1. This takes the overall house edge from twopercent with a single zero wheel to a whopping 5percent in American. The one number wager has only a one in thirty eight chance of succeeding, which are very big odds indeed. Bet on even-odd or black-red wagers instead which have a much smaller house advantage.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and anyway you play it, the casino edge can be a whopping twenty-five percent. No, that is not a typo. Because of the large set of numbers you must choose, it’s not advisable to play Keno very much. A number of times for entertainment, maybe. But don’t spend all your money on it or you will immediately find yourself beaten.
