Net Casino Sucker Bets — Part Two

  • Progressive side bets: Games such as Caribbean Stud Poker commonly offer one of these. You normally lay a bet (a dollar is the normal amount) to try to win a side jackpot that can reach $25,000. Though huge jackpots like these are extremely tempting, they are also particularly hard to win. You might need to get a Royal Flush in order to hit this bet. Also, think about this- you play twenty hands and lay the side wager each time. That is twenty dollars you could have used towards the real game bet instead of a sucker bet. Picture what you could have been able to win at a wager with better odds using that $20.
  • Individual number wagers in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has 2 zeroes on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has just one. This shifts the overall casino advantage from 2% with a single zero wheel to a whopping fivepercent in American. The single 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 as a substitute which have a much smaller casino advantage.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and anyway you play it, the casino advantage can be a whopping 25%. Yes, that was not a typo. Because of the huge amount of numbers you must choose, it is not recommended to play Keno to often. A few times for enjoyment, perhaps. But don’t waste all your cash on it or you will quickly find yourself broke.
