Side bets in Traditional Casino Table games are just that, bets you ca nmake in addition to your main game bet or bets on a different number of playing scenarios over one or more consecutive games. The side bets generally have no link to the main game outcome. Side bets are great for Casinos, as it's through these they can make additional income. Whilst the odds offered are very attractive there is a greater House edge with these bets, so if you're a percentage player you'd do well to avoid them. However saying that if player bankroll allows then it's worth a punt for a bit of extra fun and excitement.
