Web Casino Sucker Wagers — Part II

by Alex on December 10th, 2015

  • Progressive side wagers: Games such as Caribbean Stud Poker often offer one of these. You usually place a wager (a dollar is the normal value) to attempt to win a side jackpot that could reach $25,000. Although huge jackpots like this are particularly appealing, they are also incredibly complicated to win. You would have to get a Royal Flush in order to hit this wager. Also, imagine this- you wager twenty hands and make the side wager every time. That’s $20 you should have used towards the actual game wager in place of a sucker bet. Picture what you could have been able to win at a bet 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, unlike European Roulette, which has only 1. This takes the complete casino advantage from 2.63percent with a single zero wheel to a huge 5percent in American. The single number bet has only a one 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 advantage.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and regardless of how you play it, the house edge can be a whopping 25%. No, that is not a typo. Due to the large amount of numbers you have to choose, it is not recommended to play Keno very much. A couple of times for entertainment, perhaps. But don’t waste all your cash on it or you will immediately discover yourself bankrupt.
