Tips for roulette players
From Anna Taylor: May 2018

Most casino games are simple and the rules are often easy to follow and Roulette is one of those games. Most people associate Roulette with famous Hollywood movie stars and it is seen as a sophisticated game. Most people may think it is complex, but it's actually really easy to play. Roulette doesn't really have any technical terms or difficult betting systems, and basically all players have to do is decide where the ball will land. Having a few tips and taking some advice from the experts will help though.

Even though Roulette, unlike online Blackjack, is a game based on luck, players can definitely increase their odds of winning if they have a plan, such as how much to bet and what to bet on. New Roulette players will generally choose their lucky numbers, and this can work sometimes, it is really often just luck if they win. For those players serious about winning it is good to have a proper plan of action before playing any casino game.

How to Play Roulette

To begin with players should understand the basics of the game. The wheel has 37 numbered pockets (38 pockets if playing American Roulette, which is not a good idea as players will reduce their chances of winning with this variant). There are red and black numbers and a zero pocket which is green. The small white ball is thrown onto the spinning wheel and players must then attempt to guess where the ball will land. Players place their bets on the Roulette table in the area corresponding to their bet, red, black, or a particular number or other section of the table depending on the bet. The croupier will then throw the ball into the wheel. With online Roulette the random number generator (RNG) will select the outcome of the spin. Players should realise though that the house always has the edge, no matter how professional or good a player may be.

A good tip to always follow is that a player should never wager more than they can afford to lose as this will result in chasing losses. In any casino game there is never a guaranteed way of winning and players will not win every time. By using some good advice players can definitely maximise their chances of winning. There are a few strategies that players can use, such as the Martingale which is a doubling betting system, the Paroli system and the Labouchere system. Players must just be careful when using these and make sure that they understand that these systems do not guarantee a win.

Tips for Playing Online

When playing online casino players should try to focus on playing outside bets, these bets are placed outside of the numbered section and are bets such as red or black or odds or evens. The odds for are not as good, but the chances of winning these are far better. The inside bets are those in the numbered section and where they intersect. The wins are much higher, but the chances of winning are far less. Playing for free online will also help players to improve their skills without risking any real money.

Roulette is a fun game and appeals to many players. By following a few easy tips players can improve their chances of winning and reduce the risk of losing.
