Roulette: Improve the odds
The game of roulette has been around for hundreds of years and it’s most popular form is at the table in a casino. In recent years, due to an influx of accessibility to advanced technology and internet access, online gaming has become increasingly popular. Roulette is now one of the most popular online games to play and although most commonly used betting systems can also be applied to the online version, here are some recommendations as to how you may better your odds of winning whilst playing online.
Online roulette uses a random number generator which makes it near impossible to guess which number it will fall on and as soon as the ball lands, the probability of the next number being the same is equal to the probability of it landing on a different number entirely. The first recommendation would be to always play a European wheel game as the odds are higher than the odds on an American wheel; this means that the odds of winning each bet are slightly higher than in the American style wheel. It is a small thing to notice but any way that you can better your odds of winning makes it a worthy tip.
Another tip would be to always look out for the “surrender” rule. This basically means that you can take back half of your bet on even money bets (high/low, red/black, odd/even) if the ball were to land on 0 or 00. This isn’t always an option but if you are able to spot a roulette game that allows this it can help you keep the amount of money you lose low.
There is also the “En Prison” rule which is commonly used in European roulette; this rule allows you to save the bet if the ball were to land on 0. This means that when you place your bet and the play lands on 0, you’re able to save your bet for the next spin and if on the next spin your number comes up, you win your money back but if not you will lose the bet entirely.
These are just some helpful tips for the novice roulette players but can be used to affective ends by any player no matter how much experience they have playing the game.
