The Do’s And Don’ts When Playing Roulette

Everything You Need To Know To Make A Profit While Playing Roulette It is impossible to think about a casino without imagining a group of people gathering around the Roulette wheel.

However, if you have played Roulette in any form then you will understand how difficult it is to actually win money while playing the game – today, we are going to teach you how to do just that.

What Is Roulette – A History Of The Game

Like many of the casino games that we love in America, Roulette originates from France and was brought over here by French and British Soldiers. The aim of the game is to spin the wheel and guess which number the ball will land on. The numbers go from 00 to 36. Half the numbers are red and the other half is black.

Betters have the option to bet on a single number, a row of numbers, or a color.

The wheel that is used in a game of Roulette was invented by accident. The inventor was trying to create the perpetual motion machine and when that failed he gave it to his friend. His friend saw how the smooth spinning wheel could be turned into a game.

The game quickly took off all over France and many royals were known to be fans of the game too.

The came is often featured in casinos because of its popularity in pop culture and because the house has a very large edge in the game. This means that the house is more likely to make a profit from a game of Roulette than from a game like Blackjack.

Roulette Do’s And Don’ts

Do – Play Roulette Online

When you play Roulette online you are going to get a better deal than if you were to play in a physical casino. Most casinos will offer you free spins and joining deals. If you join the right casino, you may even be offered free spins every day that you play.

Online casinos also offer tables with a range of buy-ins. This is something physical casinos just don’t have the space to do. If you want to make money while playing Roulette then you need to make sure you are getting the best value for your money that you can.

Don’t – Bet On A 00 Wheel

When you play Roulette, you should already be aware that the odds are not in your favor, so you will need to do every little you can to even out the odds. One thing you can do is to choose to play on an 0 wheel rather than an 00 wheel.

An 00 wheel has a slot in the wheel for both 0 and 00. This increases the house’s edge by over half a percent. There is a higher chance that the ball will land on 0 or 00 and only the house benefits from that happening.

Don’t – Bet On A Single Number

When you bet on a single number you have a 1 in 38 chance of winning. That means on average you are only going to win once for every 50 spins that you play.

These are really bad odds, this is the equivalent of betting on an NFL team that is +38000 to win the Super Bowl. You wouldn’t take those odds anywhere else, so why would you do it in Roulette.

Do – Bet On The Outside Bets

There are 4 types of Outside Bets:

  1. Red or Black
  2. High or Low
  3. Odds or Evens
  4. Snake Bet ( covers the following numbers – 1, 5, 9, 12, 14, 16, 19, 23, 27, 30, 32, and 34)

If you place an outside bet (not including the snake bet) you have a 50/50 chance of winning. This means your odds go from +38,000 (1/38) to +100 (½).

This means that instead of winning 1 spin (on average) out of 50, you are likely to win 25. Even though the payouts are much smaller, it is better to win little and often then to win rarely or not at all.

Do – Make A Budget Before You Start Playing

If you want to make sure that you are walking away with a good amount of money then you need to set yourself a budget. Once you have spent all your money it is time to walk away.

You should also avoid putting your winnings into your spending pot, because with a game like Roulette you are more likely to lose it again than make a profit off it.

Don’t – Bet On 17

17 is the number that people most commonly lose money on. For some reason, the ball falls on this number less frequently. There is an urban legend that says the only time Sean Connery (James Bond) ever gambled, he won on 17 in three Roulette games in a row.
