  • Progressive side wagers: Casino games such as Caribbean Stud Poker commonly contain one of these. You normally place a bet ($1 is the normal value) to try to win a bonus jackpot that can reach $25,000. Though big jackpots like these are particularly alluring, they’re also particularly difficult to win. You might need to get a Royal Flush in order to succeed on this wager. Also, picture this- you play twenty hands and make the side bet every time. That is twenty dollars you should have used towards the real game wager instead of a sucker bet. Just think about what you might have been able to win at a bet with more favorable odds utilizing that $20.
  • Individual number wagers in Roulette: This is especially true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has 2 0’s on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has only 1. This shifts the complete house advantage from 2.63percent with one zero wheel to a huge fivepercent in American. The single number wager has only a 1 in 38 chance of winning, which are very long odds indeed. Bet on even-odd or black-red bets as a substitute which have a much smaller house edge.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and anyway you bet on it, the house advantage can be a huge twenty-five percent. No, that was not a error. Because of the huge amount of numbers you have to pick, it’s not recommended to wager on Keno very much. A number of times for entertainment, perhaps. But do not spend all your money on it or you’ll immediately discover yourself broke.
