It’s so fun! I love the pokies.
If you’re anything like me, you might have noticed that there’s no better feeling than ‘cracking the code’, so to speak, when you’re playing your favourite table game. Honestly, I never knew I had a mind for strategy until I figured out the disparity in probability between Don’t Pass bets and Pass Line bets while playing Craps, for example. Or when I finally understood the internal logic of Blackjack – when to stand, when to hit, that sort of thing.
So if you fancy yourself quite the pro and want to add more thrill to your gameplay, I’d suggest trying your hand at side bets.
Massive Progressive Jackpot Side Bets
What’s not to love about a good ol’ progressive jackpot? Well, progressive side bets put you in the running for winning the (usually) huge jackpot amount shown on the game’s card. The bigger the jackpot, the less the house edge. That means you could technically bet a legible side bet – as low as $1 – and the rest is up to fate or lady luck or whatever nomenclature you prefer.
The Perfect Pairs Side Bet
This one’s for all you Blackjack beasts out there: Perfect Pairs. The game lets you place a side bet that can multiply your payout 25 times. We’re talking six-deck Blackjack – with the dealer hitting on soft 17 and Blackjack paying 3:2. This is still a higher house edge game, but definitely worth it.
Taking/Laying Odds Side Bet With Craps
Now, if you’re looking for a game that not only has a side bet but also doesn’t have a pesky house edge, I’d recommend going with Craps. There’s two kinds of side bets here: taking odds and laying odds. These give you a nice, juicy boost and let you win way more than what you would have if you’d placed it safe with a boring old regular bet.
