Online Casino Game Sucker Bet – As most of us know that the casino is one of the online gambling games that are currently being played more and more. Proposition bet on Craps: This Craps bet means you bet that a certain thing will happen on the next roll. For example, you might make a ‘hard way’ bet, which means you bet that the shooter will make a 4, 6, 8 or 10 by doubling. This bet has a house advantage of anywhere from 9.1-11.1%. This is a huge house advantage, and it’s very rare for them to be hit.
Draw bet in Baccarat: This is a bet that neither the dealer nor the player will win, but the hand will draw. This is a very rare occurrence in online Baccarat, therefore the house advantage is high. At a casino advantage of 14.1%, this is the definition of a sucker bet.
Insurance bets on Blackjack: While Blackjack has one of the lowest house advantages (and there’s also a lot of skill involved), it’s a sucker bet. Depending on how many decks of cards are used and the table rules, the house advantage from this is at least 5%, but can be as high as 14%. Only very experienced card counters can make this bet work for them, and even then it is still a lousy bet.
Progressive side bets: Games like Caribbean Stud Poker often have one of these. You usually place a bet (a dollar is the usual amount) to try to win a side jackpot that can go over $25,000. While big jackpots like these are very tempting, they are also very difficult to win. You must hit Royal Flush to win this bet. Also, imagine this – you play 20 hands and make side bets each time. That’s $20 you can use for actual game bets instead of sucker bets. Imagine what you could possibly win with a better odds bet using that $20.
Single number bets in Roulette: This is especially true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has two zeros on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has only one. It took the overall house advantage from 2.63% on a single zero wheel to a whopping 5.26% in America. Single number bets only have a 1 in 38 chance of winning, which is a very long odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red bets instead which have a much lower casino advantage.
Keno: Every version of Keno, and however you play it, the house advantage can be a whopping 25%. Yes, it’s not a typo. Due to the large number of numbers you have to choose from, it is not advisable to play Keno too much. A few times for fun, maybe. But don’t spend all your money on it or you will soon find yourself broke.…Continue Reading...
