Players are attracted to Roulette because it is simple, fun and a game chance, requiring no player input once the wheel starts spinning. Even though roulette is a game of chance, to win at roulette you can put the odds of success in your favor with the following information.
Play on European Tables Only
Roulette wheels can divided into 37 (European) or 38 (American) numbered slots depending on whether there are one or two zeros on the wheel marked 0 and 00. 37 numbered slots give the house a 2.7 percent advantage on single number bets, while wheels with 38 numbered slots give the house an advantage to 5.6 percent. Always play the European wheel, as your odds of success are greater.
Play Bets with the Best Chance of Success
To win at roulette you need to know the best bets. An example of a good bet would be an even-money bet where you lose only half your wager if the roulette ball lands on 0 or 00. These outside wagers cut the house edge down from 5.26 to 2.63%.
Keep in mind that this advantage is only in effect for even-money bets. These bets are the 1 – 18 and 19 – 36 bets, the even/odd bet and the black/red bet.
The other attraction of these bets is that you can play these bets a long time with a small bankroll.
You’ll find your odds of winning are 45% making it a very low risk way to bet.
The Best Bet on the Table
If you want to win at roulette look to place the bets with the best odds. Play on a European single-zero wheel that offers the rule ‘en prison.’ If you make an even money bet and the ball lands on zero, the croupier doesn’t take in your wager. Instead, your bet is ‘imprisoned’ i.e held hostage, and you let it go forward to the next spin. If your bet wins, you can remove it from the table.
What is of importance with this bet is it cuts the house edge on even money bets in half, down to 1.35%. This makes it the best bet on a roulette table to play.
As roulette is a game of chance, money management cannot affect the house advantage on any wager, or guarantee that you will win more money.
If the house has an advantage before you use a money management system, it still has the advantage after you apply a money management system.
There are numerous money management systems promoted for roulette, but none of them work. The best way to win at Roulette is to simply play the bets with the best odds of success.
There are many companies offering you big consistent gains if you use their roulette systems. Of course, as roulette is a game of chance mathematical systems can’t work. In mathematics you know exactly what will happen next, whereas in a game of chance you have the exact opposite scenario: You never know what is going to happen!
If you want to win at roulette play the European wheel and stick with the bets outlined above. If you do this your odds of winning at roulette will be increased.
