Internet Casino Sucker Bets — Part 2

  • Progressive side bets: Casino games such as Caribbean Stud Poker commonly contain one of these. You typically place a bet (a dollar is the normal amt.) to try to win a side jackpot that can reach twenty-five thousand dollars. Although huge jackpots like this are particularly appealing, they are also very hard to succeed. You would need to get a Royal Flush in order to hit this wager. Also, think about this- you wager twenty hands and place the side wager each time. That’s twenty dollars you could have used towards the real game wager instead of a sucker wager. Just think about what you might have been able to win at a wager with greater 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 just one. This takes the overall house edge from twopercent with a single zero wheel to a whopping 5.26% in American. The individual number wager has only a 1 in 38 chance of succeeding, which are very long odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red bets alternately which have a much lower casino advantage.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and regardless of how you bet on it, the casino advantage can be a huge 25%. No, that isn’t a error. Due to the large set of numbers you must choose, it is not recommended to wager on Keno to often. A few times for fun, maybe. But do not spend all your cash on it or you’ll quickly discover yourself bankrupt.
