Web Casino Sucker Bets — Part 2

by Alex on April 26th, 2017

  • Progressive side bets: Games such as Caribbean Stud Poker commonly offer one of these. You usually place a wager (a dollar is the usual amount) to attempt to win a side jackpot that could be upwards of twenty-five thousand dollars. Though huge jackpots like these are particularly alluring, they are also particularly complicated to succeed. You would need to hit a Royal Flush in order to succeed on this bet. Also, picture this- you wager 20 hands and lay the side wager each time. That’s $20 you could have used towards the actual game wager instead of a sucker bet. Imagine what you might have been able to win at a bet with greater odds utilizing that $20.
  • Single number bets in Roulette: This is especially true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has two zeroes on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has only one. This shifts the overall casino advantage from 2.63% with one zero wheel to a whopping 5.26% in American. The individual number wager has just a 1 in 38 chance of succeeding, which are very big odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red wagers as a substitute which have a much lower house advantage.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and regardless of how you wager on it, the casino edge can be a whopping twenty-five percent. No, that isn’t a typo. Because of the large set of numbers you have to select, it is not recommended to wager on Keno to often. A number of times for enjoyment, perhaps. But don’t spend all your cash on it or you will quickly find yourself bankrupt.
