# How to Win at Electronic Roulette

Roulette is a game that’s been around for over two centuries. The name originally came from the French word which means “little wheel.” Unfortunately, not every casino owns a table for this game. There are cases in states like Florida where roulette is illegal, and the only form available in tribal casinos is electronic roulette tables.

## Rules

When it comes to electronic roulette wheels, the rules are quite similar to the live version. The main goal of the game is to successfully predict the number where the ball will land. There are a total of 36 numbers on a roulette wheel, with one or two zero pockets where the ball might land. In European roulette, there is only one zero, while in American, there are two. If the ball lands on one of the zero pockets, the house wins unless someone bets on the exact zero number.

Since the chances of guessing the right number are pretty low, you will have an option to bet on which third or half will have the winning number, on odd or even numbers, or whether the number will be black or red. Finally, you could put bets on the zero pocket, but the only way to win is if the ball lands on that pocket.

## Bet Chances

Correctly guessing if the ball will land on your color will double your bet. The same applies if you choose to bet on the first (or second) eighteen numbers or if the number will be odd or even. Finally, the last option is to bet in thirds for the numbers between 1 and 12, 13 to 24, and 25 to 36, and these will triple the initial bet.

If you correctly guess the winning number, you will get 36 times your bet size. The same rule applies for betting on 0 or 00. However, zero pockets are not part of any other betting variation. For example, if you bet on a color or section of the table, and the ball lands on zero, everyone loses.

The chances of guessing the outcome are 37:1 in European, 38:1 in American, and 39:1 in a version that has a triple-zero pocket. Naturally, this puts the house in advantage 2.7% in European and 7.69% in the version with a triple-zero pocket.

## Betting Strategies

Everyone wants to know the answer to ‘how to win at electronic roulette’ question. Over the years, there have been several roulette strategies and betting systems. The idea behind them is to find a fail-proof system that will allow you to win no matter what. The outcome of roulette is impossible to predict. Furthermore, the pockets are too shallow for the ball to simply stay in one place. There is a high chance that the ball will simply bounce and end on the opposite side of the wheel. Of course, this only applies to live roulette with a real table and live dealer. When it comes to an electronic roulette machine, the outcome is based on RNG (Random Number Generator), which will make it impossible to predict the result.

The only thing you could do is rely on the betting strategies that might give you a chance to overcome the house edge and increase your odds.

### The Martingale Strategy

The idea behind the Martingale strategy is to double the bet after each loss. It would be a good idea to find the table that offers low minimum and high maximum bet. When you find a table, you should bet on black or red, even or odd, or first or the second half. If it happens that you lose, you will simply double the bet until you win. This way, you will eventually earn more than you invested.

Unfortunately, you will never go to roulette with an infinite amount of money, and if you are on a bad losing streak, you might hit the max bet limit which will result in losing a lot of money.

Finally, there is another version of this strategy called the Reverse Martingale where the idea is basically the same with the difference that you’ll raise the bet when you win and lower it every time you lose. This way, you will profit on every winning streak and lower your losses.

### The Fibonacci Sequence

The famous Italian mathematician known as Fibonacci created a renowned sequence where each number is the sum of two previous ones. The sequence would start with 1 and go on like this 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, and so on. When you start playing like this, the idea is to base your bets on the Fibonacci sequence. So you start with $1, and after each loss, you proceed to add the sum of two previous bets. If you win, you will go two steps back and continue the same way.

However, the main problem is that it is quite easy to reach high bets after a small losing streak. Furthermore, it is easy to reach the betting limit or to simply lose all your money.

### The D’Alembert Strategy

This is a bit safer strategy for those who wouldn’t want to risk using Martingale. The idea is to decrease your bets by one dollar when you win and to increase it by one when you lose. You would play the game until you have as many wins as you have losses. This way, you would profit in the end.

The downside of this strategy is that you could either get on a huge losing streak where you would lose a lot of money, and you’d continue to lose by trying to even the win-loss ratio. Furthermore, even if your win-loss score is equal, you would profit by a few dollars only. Finally, it might be a bit tricky to follow the number of games played and the amount of wins/loses.

## Conclusion

Whether you are in Las Vegas playing online roulette or playing roulette that is based on RNG, it will be impossible to predict the outcome. Even the most experienced players are aware of the fact that the game is based entirely on luck.

Of course, you can try one of the strategies but be aware that they are not fail-proof, and they might not even work. Many of these tactics are still based on luck, and they will almost undoubtedly fail. So you might as well enjoy playing and betting on random numbers to test your luck.
