Internet Casino Sucker Bets — Part II

[ English ]
  • Progressive side wagers: Games like Caribbean Stud Poker often contain one of these. You normally lay a bet ($1 is the usual amount) to try to win a bonus jackpot that can reach $25,000. Though huge jackpots like this are particularly appealing, they are also very complicated to win. You might need to hit a Royal Flush in order to succeed on this wager. Also, picture this- you wager twenty hands and lay the side bet every time. That is $20 you should have used towards the actual game wager instead of a sucker wager. Just think about what you could have been able to win at a wager with better odds utilizing that 20 dollars.
  • Individual number bets in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has two zeroes on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has just 1. This shifts the overall house edge from 2.63percent with a single zero wheel to a huge five% in American. The one number wager has just a 1 in 38 chance of winning, which are very long odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red bets as a substitute which have a much smaller casino advantage.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and anyway you wager on it, the casino advantage can be a huge twenty-five percent. No, that wasn’t a typo. Because of the huge set of numbers you must pick, it’s not advisable to play Keno very much. A number of times for entertainment, maybe. But do not waste all your money on it or you’ll quickly discover yourself broke.
