How to Win at Roulette at a Casino
All of you who occasionally like to enter an online casino or a land-based one, have probably bet on Roulette at least once. This is one of the most popular table games, and it is available at every casino. Whether you have played Roulette online or the old traditional way, you are familiar with the concept — You place your bet on a certain number, red or black, and wait for the Roulette wheel to stop spinning. Standing around the Roulette table, virtual or real, is a unique experience. You can feel the adrenaline as you watch the wheel and wait for the results. If you get to win money playing your favourite casino game, the satisfaction is that much greater.
Fun, Games, and Big Bickies
If you recognise yourself in the description of a Roulette player, I have good news for you. I have made a guide that will help your odds of winning skyrocket. You can take advantage of some tips and tricks while having fun and making a profit at the same time. Of course, there is no precise recipe for winning every single time. Anyone who promises you such a thing is either lying or does not know what they are talking about. However, there are some betting strategies that you can try to make your experience more entertaining. If you get familiar with them, you can test them out for the sake of fun.
If you want to become one of the gamblers the others admire, let me take you through the following lines. Hopefully, the things I have managed to learn will help you achieve your goal and win at Roulette. Just create a mental image of yourself collecting piles of chips from the table and cashing them out, and we can begin.
Tips and Tricks
I have made sure to organise all the relevant pieces of advice by categories, so you can know what to pay attention to at any given time. Winning at Roulette requires luck and patience. However, you also need to familiarise yourself with betting systems. It is essential to take your time and go step by step. Remember, you are in it for the fun, so do not rush into anything. That way, you will learn how to approach the game and make the most out of it.
Luckily for you, you can play for free before you place your bets. You will get to gain confidence by talking to the dealer and watching other players. Playing for the sake of the game without the pressure that placing a bet can put on you, will get you going and facilitate your learning process.
Pay attention to the wheel. Take your time and watch the game for a while. Get familiar with a specific Roulette table that pleases your eye the most. Do not disregard the force the casino workers put into spinning the wheel. According to some people, the way they spin the wheel can predict whether you win a round or not. I’m not saying this is true, but feel free to test it.
Take advantage of everything the Information Age has given to us. Sit back, turn your computer on, and load a gambling website. Search for an online casino that offers the possibility of playing for free. If you decide to make a deposit after a while, be careful. Check the website, see if it has a license and what other gamblers have to say about it. Also, make sure it has a random number generator (RNG) published. If not, the chances are that the operators’ goal is to trick the players by intentionally corrupting the game.
European Roulette vs American Roulette
All casino games have variations, Roulette being no exception. In case you can choose between American Roulette and European Roulette, pick the latter one. There is an additional slot on the American wheel. Statistically, this slightly reduces your chances of winning. On top of that, there is the original French Roulette, where the house edge is 50% lower than that on the American ones. This means that if a ball lands on zero, the house will take only half of the overall bets. Do not disregard these differences, as they can prove to be essential. An additional slot and a higher house edge can affect the outcome of the game. Take that into consideration, and choose the wheel that is more likely to become your wheel of fortune.
Manage Your Funds
When you determine you have practised enough, and you feel like you’re ready to start playing for real, you need to reduce the risks. I know your goal is to collect the money at the end of the game, but you have to remember that gambling demands losing as well as winning. In order to stay on track, you need to decide how much you are willing to potentially lose, and stick to your decision. I know it may be hard to control yourself, especially while playing such a fun and dynamic game, but this is an important step on your way to your goal. Remember, if you get carried away, you may end up losing all your money — And that is the complete opposite of what you want.
Take Your Money as It Comes
Always remember to withdraw your winnings as soon as you land them. Keep that money on a separate pile, and continue to bet using the same amount of money you used the first time. Do not let yourself be tempted to break this rule. Control is the key to any type of success, and that includes winning at Roulette. If you keep the money you have won separated from the money for wagering, you will at least break even. Moreover, you might even have the edge. In case you decide to try your luck playing online, check the clauses of the website and see if it imposes withdrawal limits.
Cover the Options
If having an advantage over the game is what you want to achieve, you need to play safe. The best way to do this is to limit yourself so that you bet on red or black, high or low, or odd or even. That way, the house edge does not change, but your odds do — They can be just under 50%. If you aim for the bigger wins, you can bet on the two outside options. For instance, if you place your bet on black and even, you cover more options, and some of them even more than once. I strongly advise you to be responsible when you gamble, as this is the best way to stay safe.
You must have heard people talking about some strategies when it comes to table games. In case you have been wondering about them, you have come to the right place. Being one of the table games, Roulette also has a couple of strategies you can apply. Fortunately, I have made sure to test some of them for fun before I share them with you. However, I highly advise you not to trust them blindly, as they do not guarantee a positive outcome.
The Martingale Strategy
Remember the piece of advice about covering all the options? If so, you can spice it up a bit. According to this strategy, if you bet on red versus black and end up losing, you should not give up hope. Instead, you should bet twice as much on the same colour and keep doing that until you win. The strategy claims that not only will you make a profit, but you will also manage to win your losses back because the wheel has to land on red at some point.
However, if you try to test this out, do not lose track of how much money you have. This will help you place a bet twice as big as the previous one each time. I also must warn you about losing streaks that can occur during a Roulette game. If you happen to face a long losing streak, you may want to take a break from this strategy.
The James Bond Strategy
This British Secret Service agent has a solution for you. The 007 strategy implies betting an amount of $200, but in parts. Let me explain it more thoroughly. Wager $140 on one of the high numbers (19 to 36), $50 on all the numbers from 13 to 18, and $10 on zero. This means you will get to cover a big portion of the Roulette layout. The only way you can lose is to land a number between 1 and 12. Nevertheless, that is the moment for the Martingale strategy.
As you can see, there is always a trick you can take out of your sleeve — Even when you find yourself in a seemingly dead-end situation. Study the strategies and practice your skills. Observe the experienced gamblers and the ball across the wheel. Listen to the sound and get used to it. Feel the game and enjoy it. Do not force yourself to bet before you are ready or to bet more than you can afford. Take a look at all the options you have at your disposal. Choose an established casino — This goes for both online and land-based ones. Above everything else, have fun, that is the point of gambling.
