Casinos have come up with all kinds of innovative ways to separate players from their bankrolls over the years.
Sure, as every gambler knows, the house will always win over time. But experienced punters tend to bet only on games that offer a respectable house edge of only 2-5%.
But for some casinos and platforms, the mountain of profits that comes from these kinds of games just isn’t enough!
That’s where the truly terrible ideas come in…
…and over the years, there have been plenty of them!
Whether it’s the rise of 6:5 blackjack, the abundance of blackjack side bets – a money pit that good blackjack strategy dictates should always be avoided – or simply Keno (which carries an astonishing house edge of 20–40%), it seems the possibilities are endless when it comes to terrible odds for gamblers. Big Six, also known as Wheel of Fortune, also belongs on this list of games that should be avoided at all cost.
But now, there’s a new addition to this hall of shame: the triple-zero roulette wheel.
