  • Progressive side wagers: Casino games such as Caribbean Stud Poker regularly have one of these. You usually put a bet (a dollar is the normal amount) to try to win a side jackpot that could reach $25,000. Although huge jackpots like this are particularly alluring, they are also very complicated to win. You might need to get a Royal Flush in order to hit this bet. Also, picture this- you wager 20 hands and lay the side wager each time. That is $20 you could have used towards the actual game wager in place of a sucker wager. Just think about what you could have been able to win at a wager with greater odds utilizing that twenty dollars.
  • Single number wagers in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has two zeroes on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has just one. This takes the overall casino advantage from 2% with a single zero wheel to a whopping fivepercent in American. The individual number bet has just a 1 in 38 chance of winning, which are very big odds indeed. Bet on even-odd or black-red wagers instead which have a much lower casino advantage.
  • Keno: Any variation of Keno, and regardless of how you play it, the casino edge can be a huge twenty-five percent. No, that is not a error. Because of the huge amount of numbers you must select, it isn’t recommended to bet on Keno to often. A number of times for enjoyment, perhaps. But do not waste all your cash on it or you will immediately find yourself broke.
