Internet Casino Sucker Bets — Part II


Posted by Maia | Posted in Online Casino | Posted on 06-12-2009

  • Progressive side bets: Casino games like Caribbean Stud Poker regularly offer one of these. You normally put a wager ($1 is the usual amt.) to try to win a side jackpot that could reach $25,000. Although big jackpots like this are particularly appealing, they’re also incredibly complicated to succeed. You would have to get a Royal Flush in order to succeed on this bet. Also, imagine this- you play 20 hands and place the side bet every time. That’s twenty dollars you could have used towards the real game wager in place of a sucker bet. Picture what you could have been able to win at a wager with better odds using that twenty dollars.
  • 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 1. This takes the overall house edge from 2.63percent with a single zero wheel to a whopping 5.26% in American. The single number wager has just a one in 38 chance of winning, which are very big odds indeed. Bet on even-odd or black-red bets instead which have a much lower house advantage.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and anyway you play it, the casino edge can be a whopping 25%. Yes, that isn’t a error. Due to the huge set of numbers you must choose, it’s not recommended to play Keno to often. A couple of times for fun, maybe. But do not waste all your cash on it or you will immediately find yourself beaten.
