Roulette is a popular casino game played in many casinos and bars around the world. The game was originated in France during the seventeenth century. It is a French word meaning ‘little wheel’. There are two types of roulette: American and European. The American roulette consists of both single zero (‘0’) and double zeros (‘00’) while the European roulette consists of only a single zero (‘0’). There are 37 coloured and numbered pockets in French and European roulette while there are 38 pockets present in an American roulette.
The lethal game of chance, Roulette
In this game, the players get the option to choose;
- bets on either for a single number or several numbers,
- the colors- black or red,
- either an odd number or an even number,
- high numbers (from 19 to 36) or low numbers ( from 1 to 18).
The European Roulette includes a combination of both strategies and chances. This casino game includes a wheel, a table and a ball that are marked with different boxes. The boxes contain the numbers 0 to 36. The players have to place bets on those numbers (one or more) and click the Spin button. They can place a number of bets randomly while the ball spins until the dealer present their announces ‘no more bets’. Eventually, the ball loses its momentum and falls into one of the 37 or 38 colored and numbered blocks present on the wheel. The number in which the ball gets stuck determines the player’s fortune.
Strategies and tactics
Here is the list of top seven strategies that one can use while playing an online roulette game:
- Before starting the game and placing the bets, one must understand the odds. The more numbers one bets on, the higher are the chances of his winning. If the chip is placed on any one of the numbers, then the possibilities of hitting that particular number are low, so therefore the payout is pretty large.
- Always choose to play the European Roulette. The European version of roulette has a house edge of 2.63% which is very small. Hence, it has the higher chances to let you win and one should always go for it. One can also go for casinos with ‘No prison’ or ‘Surrender’ rule as they will give them the full stake or half stake back if the ball stops on the zero.
- One must try not to bet more than he can afford because it’s a game of luck and chances. You never know whether you are going to win or lose.
- One must try different betting systems, but he/she should keep in mind not to count on them. Never decide the number of games (ex: 100 or 200) that you are going to play and with the same keep in mind that you should not count or record them as you play. As doing such things will let you be more prepared for a loss on your playing session. So, when you are seemingly winning, go for the shorter sessions since they will work in your favour.
- Find a good casino that you can trust. Make sure that the operators of the casino are honest, trustworthy and legitimate. Although, in the online world of games, things are somewhat different. So it’s completely up to you to mark the fair one.
- Never drink while playing. If you are willing to win the game, then you must always keep your head clear while betting.
- Make sure that you know the variations of your roulette cheat sheet perfectly. Plan your strategies well before starting the game like how to place bets, where to place them, how much to bet, and how to win the game.
