Online Casino Sucker Wagers — Part 2

  • Progressive side wagers: Games such as Caribbean Stud Poker regularly have one of these. You typically lay a wager (a dollar is the usual amount) to attempt to win a side jackpot that can reach twenty-five thousand dollars. Though huge jackpots like this are particularly tempting, they’re also particularly complicated to win. You might need to hit a Royal Flush in order to succeed on this bet. Also, imagine this- you play twenty hands and lay the side bet each time. That is twenty dollars you should have used towards the actual game bet instead of a sucker wager. Just think about what you could have been able to win at a bet with better odds employing that 20 dollars.
  • Individual number wagers in Roulette: This is especially true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has 2 zeroes on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has just one. This takes the overall house edge from 2% with one zero wheel to a huge 5% in American. The single number wager has just a one in 38 chance of succeeding, which are very big odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red wagers instead which have a much smaller casino edge.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and anyway you gamble on it, the house edge can be a huge 25%. No, that is not a typo. Due to the huge amount of numbers you must choose, it’s not recommended to wager on Keno to often. A number of times for entertainment, perhaps. But do not spend all your money on it or you will quickly find yourself bankrupt.
