Roulette Experience

Some may argue that the thrill and excitement of Roulette is best enjoyed at the land based casino. However, there are others who prefer the online version and find it to be as exciting as playing live at a traditional casino. Many unlike my friend Adrian believe that playing Roulette is throwing away your money – partly true because Roulette is a game of chance. The spin of a Roulette wheel is completely random and the marble settles in a particular pocket depending on the momentum created by the spinning wheel. There is no strategy that you can adopt to make money at roulette. Of course, an element of luck plays a role in improving your odds at winning.  However, Adrian not only keeps playing Roulette he actually wins regularly. So when I asked him how it does it his answer was simple enough; “the best way to improve your chances of winning at roulette is to learn how to play the game and know how to place your bets”. So people, with his permission, here are Adrian’s secrets to winning at the online roulette.

Play at a Single Zero Roulette Wheel

The Roulette wheel consists of 37 numbered slots if you are playing the European version; the American Roulette wheel has 38 slots –the extra pocket being the double zero (00). The basic rule you need to remember here is that every additional slot on the wheel reduces your chance of winning. So, whether you are playing online or at a land based casino, choose the European Roulette wherever possible since it has a lower house edge.  At casinos in Las Vegas, you will find only the American version of Roulette with 38 pockets on the wheel. Online, you will find a number of reputed casinos offering European roulette which means playing online offers a considerable advantage in terms of winning odds.


Understand the Various Bets in Roulette

The game of roulette allows for a diversity of bets and if you know to place the right bets, you will be successful in winning most of the times. Color bets, straight bets, street bets, even money bet, inside bet, outside bet, column bet and the dozen bet are only some of the bets you could place. There is no single bet that can be deemed as the “best bet” in roulette. The probability for each bet changes according to your placement of the bet. Outside bets have a higher probability of winning but they offer a lower payout. A straight bet involves wagering on a single number out of the 37 or 38 slots. Although the return on this bet is 36:1, the probability of winning this bet is almost zero. The outside bet on the other hand allows you to win money more often although at a slower pace.

Players can make multiple bets on each spin of the wheel. This makes the game even more interesting, especially if you place both, a high risk and a low risk bet at the same time, balancing out the odds. As you can see, understanding the rules of the game, studying the probabilities of each bet and understanding the payouts is important to taste success in Roulette.

Don’t waste your time looking for winning patterns

Some people seem to think there is a pattern in the way the marble lands on the numbers and they wait around to determine that number. Sometimes, you would notice a few individuals gathered around the Roulette table watching the game to see which number the ball lands on after each spin. After watching the game for a couple of hours, they believe that a pattern has emerged –they might have noticed the red 7 being hit a number of times during their observation. So, the person will wager the next time he thinks that the red 7 will be the lucky number. However, this rarely happens and the person more often ends up losing his bet. In reality though, there can be no pattern to the ball landing on the particular number slot. Unless the wheel is tilted or rigged, no single number would be hit frequently in a pattern. If you are looking for a pattern, you are only wasting your time.

As stated in the preceding paragraphs, Roulette is a game of chance and no betting system or strategy will ensure success. Getting yourself familiar with the rules and the various bets that are allowed in Roulette is the only way to make some money on this casino game. One way for a beginner to learn the rules of the game is to play free roulette that is offered by some of the internet gambling sites. Playing for free ensures that you understand the various bets and probabilities thus enabling you to enjoy the thrill of winning at Roulette when you actually start to play with real money.
