How to play online roulette
There are many strategies when playing the game of roulette. The game itself involves betting on which number a ball, rolling around a wheel of numbers, will land on. It is an exciting game with a long history and can be found almost all land-based and online casinos.
Some will say it is a game of luck, but it is how you manage that luck that counts. There are those that like to stick to the one strategy they know, or the one that has brought them the most winnings, but unfortunately all strategies have their pros and cons, so mixing it up a little can help you stay on top of your game. It is also important to realize that strategies may change depending on whether you are playing French, European or American roulette. In French and in European roulette, there is one zero on the wheel. The games differ slightly in the layout of the numbers on the wheel itself. In American roulette however, there is a double zero on the wheel. This extra zero makes American roulette a much more difficult game to win.
If you are just starting out and just learning how to play roulette, it might be worthwhile to skip some of the more complicated, and more famous strategies, and stick with something easy. One easy strategy to try is the strategy of only ever betting the minimum amount. In this way you can really cut your losses. Unfortunately, the down side is that you won’t make much on your wins. But for those just starting out, it is important to get to know the game well before branching out financially.
Why not try just betting on one type of number, for example only on black not red, or only odd not even. In this way, you are covering half the board with your bets, while not getting complicated or having to think too far beyond what is going on at the wheel.
You might also like to get a little more adventurous and place two equal bets on two outside numbers.
As your experience with roulette improves, you may wish to take a few more risks. There are many strategies out there to choose from, and these include those that are positive and those that are negative progressions. A positive progression system is a strategy whereby when you win you increase your bet and when you lose you decrease it. This makes a lot of sense, but also can lessen your winning amounts along the way. On the other hand, a negative progression system is one whereby a player increases their bet each time they lose. Crazy as it might sound, there is method in this madness. You cannot continue on a losing streak forever, so a negative progression is a great way to “save up” for that win that it is just around the corner. For when you do win with a negative progression, the winnings are much larger in general.
