Roulette is a game of pure luck. There is nothing you can do to change the expected value of the game. In the long run, the house edge will deplete any bankroll you have. However, if you are lucky, you can walk away a winner.
Only bet what you can afford to lose
This is very important with any type of gambling. Only bet what you can afford to lose. If you are going to suffer hardship as a result of losing then you shouldn’t. Makes sure you have a set amount you can afford to lose and stick by it. Never borrow to gamble. Most online casinos allow you to set up a daily or weekly deposit limit. Please take advantage of this safety feature.
The more you bet, the more you can win but its also true you can lose more. Therefore, its safer to bet with small chips. Some online casinos have 1p, 5p, 10p and 20p chips. If you play at one of these and bet small, your bankroll will last longer.
Play tables with the best odds
Roulette is pretty much of a muchness. There is very little to separate the games. However the are some differences that can make a difference to your bankroll. Standard Euoperean roulette online has a house edge of 2.7%. Never play American Roulette when European roulette is available. With the 00 on the American table, it doubles the house edge from 2.7% to 5.4%. That is a huge margin to overcome. If the casino offers French roulette or La Partage, then this could reduce the house edge from 2.7% to just 1.35%. This is because with La Partage, you get half your money back on even money bets when the ball lands on 0. This only works if you are playing on the outside. On the inside, the house edge remains the same.
Work out what type of bettor you are
Whether you bet on the inside or outside is dependent on what type of bettor you are. Under standard rules, both strategies produce the same expected value in that you will go broke at the same time but you get a different variation in your bankroll depending on where you play. If you play a few numbers on the inside, you bankroll will swing wildly. Wins are big but the distance between them will be more. If you are a thrill seeker then playing on the inside is best, as you can win several times your stake. If you play on the outside, your bankroll will be more consistent. You will win more often but your wins will be smaller. With la partage though, playing on the outside is best.
There are no systems that can beat online roulette. The random number generators (RNG) are near enough perfect and tables are certified by external testing companies. Some systems may give the impression of beating the house but in the long run they all theoretically fail. Its not to say you can’t win using the martingale (other other system) but you are on of the lucky ones if you do.
With a physical wheel it is possible to beat the house if the wheel is imperfect but these wheels are hard to find (if not impossible). In the past it was easier and there are stories of people exploiting the fact that wheels are biased but nowadays wheels are much better built that they were in the past.
There’s a reason its called the crack cocaine of gambling
Play as slow as you can. FOBTs in the bookies are known as the crack cocaine of gambling. You can lose so much in a short amount of time. Live roulette is better as there is no turbo mode and the is generally slower. You are less likely to think the game is fixed too when 10 reds in a row come out.
