A guide to playing roulette online. I wrote this entry for anyone who wants to learn how to play roulette, one of my favorite casino games.
“You cannot beat a Roulette table unless you steal money from it.” Albert Einstein once said. Now, if he couldn’t figure it out, well then nobody else is going to find a guaranteed win on roulette. With that said, there are some strategies that players use when playing, some popular methods that certain players swear by, and others not so much. There are methods based solely on mathematical equations that many will find difficult to understand. If you do some research, there are smart ways to play, and it only takes practice to learn them.
Roulette is a game of chance, and without luck the house will be the only winner. Players shouldn’t come to the table without unrealistic expectations of hitting a jackpot on their first spin. Roulette takes skill, and the numbers are all random. How could random and skill work together? With the right bet.
Betting plays a pivotal role in the experience of playing this table game It’s the thrill for some; not knowing what the results will be, but hoping they are in their favour. How much to bet, where to bet, how many bets to place? These are all good questions, and here are a few pointers when getting started.
Bet smart. Don’t bet too big on your first couple games if you are a beginner. Get to know the ins and outs of roulette, and make sure you know the bet you are making before you place it. Limit your wagers, and always stick to your budget. This is essential in walking away a winner.
Another key thing is to learn the rules. There are different rules, in roulette. Depending on the American version or the European version, there are slight variations. There are also rules like “en prison” and “la patarage” that can help things go in the players favour. Another tip, an even money bet usually is a safe wager to place. If the house lands on 0, for example, the player will only lose half of their bet.
The advantage to playing roulette on an online casino is that players may play in fun mode to learn the game. There is no such luxury at a Vegas casino, and if you asked if you could try it first for free, they would most likely laugh at you. Players could use the opportunity to play for fun as a learning tool to get a feel of what bets to place, and which work right for them.
As you will hear when reading anything about roulette, there is no way to predict wins, and there is no system that will help you win 100% of the time, no matter what you pay for it. Be careful, bet smart, and good luck.
Personally, I play “red.” I do this because everyone seems to bet on black. You hear it all the time. “Always black.” Well guess what – most people are usually wrong. A contrarian style of betting will always reap more rewards in the end.
