Internet Casino Sucker Bets — Part 2

by Jarrett on Sep.03, 2015, under Online Casino

  • Progressive side bets: Casino games such as Caribbean Stud Poker regularly have one of these. You usually lay a wager ($1 is the usual value) to try to win a bonus jackpot that can be upwards of $25,000. Although big jackpots like this are extremely tempting, they’re also incredibly complicated to succeed. You might have to hit a Royal Flush in order to win this wager. Also, picture this- you play 20 hands and place the side bet every time. That is $20 you could have used towards the actual game bet instead of a sucker bet. Just think about what you could have been able to win at a bet with better odds using that $20.
  • Individual number bets in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has two zeroes on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has just one. This takes the complete casino edge from two% with one zero wheel to a huge 5% in American. The individual number bet has just a 1 in thirty eight chance of succeeding, which are very long odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red wagers alternately which have a much smaller house advantage.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and anyway you gamble on it, the casino advantage can be a whopping 25%. Yes, that wasn’t a typo. Due to the large amount of numbers you have to choose, it is not recommended to play Keno very much. A few times for entertainment, perhaps. But do not spend all your cash on it or you will immediately discover yourself beaten.
