Net Casino Sucker Bets — Part II

by Jarrett on Feb.18, 2010, under Online Casino

  • Progressive side bets: Casino games such as Caribbean Stud Poker commonly contain one of these. You generally lay a bet ($1 is the usual amt.) to attempt to win a bonus jackpot that could reach $25,000. Though huge jackpots like these are extremely tempting, they are also incredibly difficult to win. You would need to hit a Royal Flush in order to succeed on this wager. Also, think about this- you wager 20 hands and lay the side bet every time. That is twenty dollars you should have used towards the real game bet in place of a sucker wager. Just think about what you might have been able to win at a wager with better odds employing that twenty dollars.
  • Single number bets in Roulette: This is completely true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has 2 0’s on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has only 1. This shifts the overall house edge from twopercent with one zero wheel to a whopping 5.26percent in American. The single number wager has just a one in thirty eight chance of succeeding, which are very long odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red wagers instead which have a much smaller casino edge.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and regardless of how you play it, the house advantage can be a whopping twenty-five percent. Yes, that is not a error. Because of the huge amount of numbers you have to pick, it is not recommended to play Keno very much. A couple of times for fun, maybe. But do not spend all your cash on it or you will quickly discover yourself beaten.
