Internet Casino Sucker Wagers — Part II

  • Progressive side wagers: Casino games like Caribbean Stud Poker commonly contain one of these. You typically lay a bet ($1 is the usual amt.) to try to win a side jackpot that could be upwards of twenty-five thousand dollars. Although big jackpots like these are particularly alluring, they’re also particularly hard to succeed. You might have to hit a Royal Flush in order to win this wager. Also, imagine this- you play 20 hands and put the side wager each time. That is 20 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 utilizing that 20 dollars.
  • Single number bets in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has two zeroes on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has just one. This takes the complete casino edge from twopercent with a single zero wheel to a huge five% in American. The one number wager has only a one in 38 chance of winning, which are very long odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red wagers instead which have a much smaller casino advantage.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and regardless of how you bet on it, the casino edge can be a whopping 25%. Yes, that is not a error. Because of the large set of numbers you must choose, it is not advisable to play Keno to often. A few times for fun, maybe. But don’t waste all your cash on it or you will immediately find yourself beaten.
