Playing roulette is fun but like just about most things in life and certainly pretty much everything in the casino, it’s a whole lot more fun when you’re winning. Life is hard, gambling isn’t easy and making a profit from playing roulette is about as hard as it gets, but here we’ve got some top roulette tips and advice to help you do just that.
First of all, let’s make one thing clear (in a confusing sort of way): winning at roulette is both very easy and also theoretically impossible. In the short term winning couldn’t be more simple. Just place a bet on red or black and you have an almost 50% chance of winning and making a very nice 100% return on your investment all in a matter of seconds. However, when we say it’s impossible to win, we mean in the long term and by long term we actually mean over an infinite amount of time. The casino, thanks to the presence of the zero – or even the zero AND the double zero – has the advantage and there is no getting round that fact. As such, the longer you play, the less chance there is of luck overcoming the house edge.
However, whether you play roulette online for just one spin or for hundreds or even thousands of spins, there are several things you can do to give yourself the best chance of winning.
The easiest is to only ever play European or French roulette, or any standard form of roulette that only has a single zero. Doing this almost halves the casino’s advantage over you, the player. If you do decide to play American (double zero) roulette, whatever you do, don’t bet on the first five numbers, zero, double zero and one through three, as this is the one bet in the entire game of roulette that offers worse odds than any other.
Another simple roulette tip is to choose your casino carefully. There are some dubious operators out there in cyberspace so make sure you pick a reliable and reputable online casino. Related to this, make sure the casino you choose has a good welcome bonus, by which we mean one with a high percentage bonus and a big maximum bonus but, perhaps more importantly, one with fair wagering requirements and one where roulette counts towards that wagering.
Finally, and the simplest piece of advice ever and, literally, the ONLY way to win at roulette or any casino game: quit whilst you’re ahead.
