Online Casino Sucker Bets — Part 2
October 24th, 2015 by Kailee
  • Progressive side wagers: Games like Caribbean Stud Poker often contain one of these. You normally place a wager (a dollar is the usual amount) to try to win a bonus jackpot that could be upwards of $25,000. Although huge jackpots like these are particularly alluring, they are also incredibly hard to win. You might need to hit a Royal Flush in order to hit this wager. Also, think about this- you play twenty hands and lay the side bet every time. That’s twenty dollars you could have used towards the actual game wager in place of a sucker wager. Imagine what you might have been able to win at a wager with greater odds using that $20.
  • Single number bets in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has 2 zeroes on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has just one. This shifts the complete house advantage from 2% with a single zero wheel to a whopping 5% in American. The single number bet has only a one in 38 chance of winning, which are very big odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red wagers instead which have a much smaller house edge.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and regardless of how you play it, the casino edge can be a huge twenty-five percent. Yes, that was not a error. Because of the huge amount of numbers you have to select, it isn’t advisable to wager on Keno to often. A number of times for fun, perhaps. But do not waste all your cash on it or you will quickly discover yourself broke.
