• Progressive side bets: Casino games like Caribbean Stud Poker regularly have one of these. You typically place a wager (a dollar is the normal value) to try to win a side jackpot that can reach twenty-five thousand dollars. Though huge jackpots like this are extremely appealing, they are also particularly complicated to win. You might have to hit a Royal Flush in order to hit this wager. Also, imagine this- you play 20 hands and put the side bet every time. That’s twenty dollars you should have used towards the real game wager instead of a sucker bet. Just think about what you could have been able to win at a wager with greater odds employing that 20 dollars.
  • Single number wagers in Roulette: This is particularly true for American Roulette. Why? American Roulette has 2 0’s on the wheel, as opposed to European Roulette, which has just one. This shifts the overall house edge from 2.63% with a single zero wheel to a whopping fivepercent in American. The one number bet has just a one in 38 chance of succeeding, which are very big odds indeed. Bet on even-odd or black-red wagers alternately which have a much lower house advantage.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and regardless of how you bet on it, the house edge can be a whopping twenty-five percent. Yes, that isn’t a typo. Because of the large set of numbers you have to pick, it is not advisable to play Keno to often. A couple of times for enjoyment, maybe. But don’t waste all your money on it or you will quickly discover yourself broke.
