Roulette introduction

Even though many individuals believe that it will take plenty of luck to win at Roulette, we should know that particular strategies exist when playing this game.

There are no doubts surrounding the fact that luck and chance is important for a player to win at Roulette, but there are also some particular strategies that they can follow. The strategy that a player can follow is quite simple, considering the fact that roulette is considered a game of statistical probability. Below are some advices that people can use while playing roulette:

You should know that you will receive good odds when playing Roulette, since this game is based on some particular statistics. In case you bet on red, you will probably obtain even money odds. Therefore, the statistical odds for red to come up are nearly even. However, in European Roulette, there is a green square that we can consider as an exception to this rule. In this case, your odds are relatively smaller than 50/50. The house edge can vary, especially in the US casinos, and this is another fact that people should keep in mind. Except for the five number, which offers a house advantage of 7.29%, the usual advantage in American roulette stands at 5.26%.

There are few things that players can perform in order to cancel/reduce the house edge, considering the fact that roulette is a non-interactive game. However, players should know that some casinos include special rules that might work in their favor. For example, a great rule called “surrender” can be obtained in Atlantic City. You should know all the information surrounding this rule before you begin playing. To make a long story short, you need to know that you can rely on this rule only when you make outside bets that pay even money. These are red or black, even or odd, and high or low. The player will lose half his money instead of the whole amount in case the ball lands on a double zero (00).

To decrease the house edge, a player needs to surrender some payoffs, considering that even money bets are bigger compared to their inner counterparts. This strategy may be productive, but we can`t say that it is the best situation.

You should search for wheels that do not include a double zero. Such wheels can be rarely found in American Casinos, considering that the house advantage is higher compared to the European Casinos. The house advantage in the American Casinos is raised by a factor of 2, considering the fact that the tables include a Green space, called the double zero (00). While the house advantage is 5.5% in the American Roulette, it stands only at 2.7% in the European Roulette.

Moreover, the European casinos also include a rule called En Prison. In case you make an even-money outside bet, and the ball will stand on 0 at the end, your bet will not be removed after all the other bets if this rule is applicable. However, you won`t get the bet back either. You will get another shot at the next spin since your previous bet will become ‘in prison’. In case you win on the next spin, you will only get your money back, with no other winnings. You will lose your bet in case you lose the next spin. The rule will be available one more time in case the ball stands on a zero. The house edge is reduced to 1.35% on even-money bets in case this rule is applicable.

Even though you might think that the best strategy would be to play on European tables, this is not really the case. What you should search for is the Single zero roulette wheels, which can be found in online casinos.
