5 Roulette Tips To Dramatically Increase Your Odds And Profits.Roulette is the third most popular casino game worldwide, after slots and video poker. Why is it so popular? Well it is fun, exciting, easy to play, and has certain glamour attached to it, thanks to James Bond!
The fact that it is so simple to play means that many players just play roulette without thinking about how to maximize their winning potential. Here we provide five tips that should help you incresing your chances to win at roulette tables.
Roulette Tip 1: Play European Roulette
The best roulette wheel to play is the European wheel as it reduces the casino advantage to an acceptable 2.63%. The American version with an extra 00 almost doubles the house advantage, so stick with the European wheel.
Roulette Tip 2: Your Best Bets
Another advantage on the European table is the en prison rule on even-money bets. When the 0 comes up, your bet remains, (is captured), for the next spin. If you win on the next spin, you aren't paid for the win, but you are allowed to take your original bet back; so you only lose half your bet. The House edge on even money bets with the en prison rule and single zero is now reduced to 1.35% making it the best bet on the table.
Talking of best bets lets look at the worst bet in roulette - The five number bet of 0, 00, 1, 2, 3 blasts that 5.26% out of the house with an edge of 7.89% to the casino, so avoid this one!
Generally, stick to the bets with lower odds, and avoid single number bets. Playing red or black gives you a chance of winning 50% of the time minus the house edge. This is an attractive bet as it keeps you in the game longer, has respectable odds and allows you to maximize your bankroll.
Roulette Tip 3: Don't Get Emotional
Don't get emotional when you play. Keep in mind roulette is a game of pure chance, so make sure you set a bankroll you are happy with IN ADVANCE, and when it's lost you leave the game.
Roulette is very emotional and exciting, so it is easy to spend those chips quickly, without thinking about it! Also, don't get angry or frustrated if you lose Roulette is a fun game first, money making is a bonus.
Roulette Tip 4: Don't Believe In Sure Fire Systems
You will see roulette systems on the net offered for just a few dollars that guarantee you huge consistent profits. Yeah right! If they were true, keep in mind the vendor would not be selling them! They would keep the system to themselves and make a million or more! Roulette is a game of chance, so forget sure-fire systems.
Roulette Tip 5: Why Are You Playing?
Of all our roulette tips this is the first one we would ask players to consider. You need to ask yourself, is your overriding aim in gambling, to make money or have fun?
If you answered fun, then roulette is for you. If your overriding motivation is to make money, then you should pick a game like blackjack, where you can actually put the odds in your favour.
Blackjack is not as exciting, or as much fun as roulette, but you will have the opportunity to make much more money! Roulette is fun, exciting, and with the above tips, you can increase the odds a little in your favour. See more roulette rules and tips and roulette tips and strategies.
