Besides the obvious fact that some online casinos (an estimated 30%) will never pay their customers one red cent either because you will never win or they fail to pay out if you do, there are some “bad bets” no matter where you play. This article looks at some of the games that will cost you a fortune if you don’t change your gambling ways.
One of the worst bets is a parlay bet in sports betting. This is where where a number of bets are placed one after the other and while some parlays can be decent investments, a “safer” parlay this year might have been a two team cross-sport parlay with Indianapolis Colts and West Virginia Mountaineers. This year both teams have been great bets to cover the spread. Overall parlays are the “sucker” bets that the bookies love because you, as a punter, will lose more of them than you win.
Online keno is a bad bet in the bricks and mortar casinos and equally so online. If you like the numbers, play bingo rather than keno. It may look like a winning proposition but it is designed to lure you in that way so please resist the temptation.
The side bets that poker rooms have added are enough to make you laugh. First, you almost don’t notice them and then when you do, you spend the next few minutes trying to figure out the concept. Here it is in a nutshell – it’s easy to figure out, but don’t bother, it is a really bad bet!
Online roulette ranks up there with the worst of all casino bets. If you read some reviews of from a few years ago, you will discover this hasn’t always been the case. Be sure to always watch for improvements, but at the moment online roulette is to be avoided at all costs in almost all online gaming rooms.
