  • Progressive side wagers: Games like Caribbean Stud Poker regularly contain one of these. You generally lay a bet ($1 is the usual amt.) to attempt to win a side jackpot that could be upwards of $25,000. Though huge jackpots like these are extremely alluring, they’re also very difficult to succeed. You would need to get a Royal Flush in order to hit this bet. Also, think about this- you play twenty hands and put the side bet each time. That is 20 dollars you should have used towards the actual game bet instead of a sucker bet. Just think about what you could have been able to win at a bet with greater odds employing that twenty dollars.
  • Single number bets in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has 2 0’s on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has just 1. This takes the overall house edge from two% with a single zero wheel to a whopping 5% in American. The one number wager has just 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 casino edge.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and anyway you gamble on it, the casino edge can be a whopping 25%. Yes, that is not a typo. Due to the huge set of numbers you have to pick, it isn’t recommended to bet on Keno to often. A number of times for enjoyment, perhaps. But do not waste all your money on it or you’ll quickly discover yourself beaten.
