  • Progressive side wagers: Casino games like Caribbean Stud Poker often have one of these. You generally lay a wager ($1 is the usual amount) to try to win a side jackpot that could be upwards of $25,000. Though huge jackpots like this are extremely appealing, they are also very complicated to succeed. You might have to hit a Royal Flush in order to hit this bet. Also, imagine this- you play 20 hands and lay the side wager each time. That is twenty dollars you could have used towards the real game bet instead of a sucker bet. Just think about what you could have been able to win at a bet with more favorable odds employing that $20.
  • Individual number bets in Roulette: This is completely true for American Roulette. The reason? American Roulette has two zeroes on the wheel, unlike European Roulette, which has just one. This takes the complete casino edge from twopercent with one zero wheel to a whopping five% in American. The one number wager has only a one in thirty eight chance of succeeding, which are very big odds indeed. Try even-odd or black-red bets alternately which have a much lower casino edge.
  • Keno: Any version of Keno, and anyway you play it, the house edge can be a huge 25%. Yes, that is not a typo. Due to the huge set of numbers you have to pick, it isn’t advisable to bet on Keno to often. A couple of times for entertainment, maybe. But do not spend all your money on it or you will immediately find yourself bankrupt.
