Stay away from inside bets at the roulette wheel
The roulette wheel is popular for its elegance and simplicity. It’s an easy game to play with a promise of making some big bucks if that little ball hits your lucky number. But the casinos have a nice edge of more than 5 percent on that fancy spinning wheel and most bets on the board are a bad bet. Stick to red, black, even, odd, low numbers, and high numbers, columns, and sectors when placing a bet. These even-money and lower-payout wagers offer a better option than those “inside bets” on individual numbers or groups of numbers, which are frequent losers and offer little chance to walk away a winner.
Slots: where the losses rack up fast
In general, slot machines are a bad bet. There’s a reason the casinos have so many of them -- the house edge reaches up to a whopping 17 percent, and with the action moving so quickly they offer a chance to lose money at a much faster rate.
There’s only one bad bet in baccarat
Baccarat can be a great game for players looking for a game with only a small house edge. Betting on the banker offers only a house edge of about 1 percent and a real chance at winning some money. However, betting on the “Tie” gives the house a huge advantage of over 14 percent. This is really the lone bad bet at the baccarat table and should be avoided for those looking to win some cash. And who isn’t, right?
