The roulette game is, for many people, one of the most enjoyable gambling games in the planet. There is nothing that can replace the rush you get when that little ball hurtles down those numbers, such a tiny thing shaping the fates of those who are in the game. That tiny ball can make or break a man, there’s no doubt about it. But, of course, nobody wants to be the one to be broken. So they try to tip the odds towards them a bit, and the one way to do this is to be mindful of what exactly the roulette odds are.
One thing to note, though, when considering roulette odds is that the game is based strongly on luck. And although it could impress upon you as the type of game whereby you bet on one number and hope to strike it big, it’s not really all that simple. The majority of roulette gamers, especially the experienced gamers, bet on a couple of numbers simultaneously instead of merely one number. There are a couple of strategies that they employ to make their odds of wining a lot better.
For a start, many roulette gamers would check out whether or not the table is European or American. If they note that the game is American, then they steer clear of it and look for another game instead. The difference between these two lies in the roulette table or, to be more precise, in the odds of wining that they respectively offer the player.
And if it’s odds we’re talking about, it is blatantly obvious that you are getting a better advantage playing European roulette. If you desire to strike it rich, then you can’t afford to be too patriotic.
The fact is, the American Roulette table has 38 numbers compared to the European roulette table which only has 37. The discrepency lies in the tables’ zeroes. European roulette has one but the American counterpart has two. Casinos win money twice as fast in the American roulette compared to the European roulette. This means that you, the player, will lose your money twice as fast.
So never play at those American Roulette tables because it just doesn’t make sense for you.
When you are playing roulette, it’s usually more enjoyable to bet on a single number because it gives you greater payoffs, when the ball happens to land on your number. Nevertheless if you’re really serious about playing roulette, you should never bet on a single number. Betting on one number gives you an odd of about 2.7%, which means that there’s a 97.3 chance that you will lose. Do your calculations, and you’ll discover that betting on one number is a really risky approach.
So, rather than placing your whole bet on solely one number, you can bet on odds or evens or red or black. It gives you a decent 50% chance of winning, lower actually because of the zero in the table but good enough to give you a profit if you’re in luck.
You can also bet on columns if you want. Sure, this strategy somewhat decreases your chances of getting a big downpour, but on the other hand, it will allow you the ability to win at a more gradual but surer pace rather than risk everything with a single haphazard decision.
