Web Casino Sucker Bets — Part Two

Monday, July 9th, 2007
  • Progressive side bets: Games such as Caribbean Stud Poker commonly have one of these. You typically lay a bet (a dollar is the normal value) to try to win a side jackpot that can reach twenty-five thousand dollars. Although huge jackpots like this are very alluring, they’re also incredibly difficult to win. You would have to get a Royal Flush in order to win this bet. Also, think about this- you wager twenty hands and place the side bet each time. That is 20 dollars you should have used towards the actual game bet instead of a sucker wager. Imagine what you might have been able to win at a wager with greater odds utilizing that 20 dollars.
  • Single number wagers in Roulette: This is especially true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has 2 zeroes on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has just one. This shifts the overall house advantage from 2% with a single zero wheel to a whopping 5.26percent in American. The one number bet has just a 1 in thirty eight chance of winning, which are very long odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red bets as a substitute which have a much smaller house edge.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and anyway you play it, the casino advantage can be a huge twenty-five percent. Yes, that isn’t a typo. Due to the large set of numbers you must select, it is not advisable to play Keno to often. A few times for fun, maybe. But don’t spend all your money on it or you’ll quickly discover yourself bankrupt.
