Net Casino Sucker Wagers — Part Two

  • Progressive side wagers: Casino games like Caribbean Stud Poker commonly have one of these. You normally lay a wager ($1 is the normal amount) to attempt to win a bonus jackpot that could reach $25,000. Though big jackpots like this are particularly appealing, they’re also very difficult to succeed. You would have to hit a Royal Flush in order to succeed on this wager. Also, picture this- you play 20 hands and make the side bet each time. That is $20 you should have used towards the real game wager in place of a sucker bet. Imagine what you could have been able to win at a bet with more favorable odds utilizing that $20.
  • Single number wagers in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has two zeroes on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has only one. This shifts the overall house advantage from twopercent with a single zero wheel to a whopping 5percent in American. The single number wager has only a 1 in thirty eight chance of winning, which are very long odds indeed. Bet on even-odd or black-red wagers alternately which have a much lower house edge.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and regardless of how you bet on it, the house advantage can be a whopping 25%. Yes, that isn’t a typo. Because of the large amount of numbers you have to select, it’s not recommended to bet on Keno to often. A few times for enjoyment, perhaps. But do not waste all your money on it or you’ll immediately discover yourself bankrupt.
