Roulette is, for many people, one of the most enjoyable gambling games in the planet. There’s nothing that can replace the rush you get when the roulette ball hurtles down those numbers, such a tiny thing affecting the fates of those who are participating in the game. That small ball can make or break a man, there’s no question about it. But, of course, nobody wants to be the one to be broken. So roulette gamers 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 consideration to be aware of, though, when considering roulette odds is that the game is based heavily on chance. And although it may seem to you as the type of game wherein you bet on one number and hope to strike it big, it’s not exactly all that simple. The majority of roulette gamers, especially the seasoned gamblers, bet on a couple of numbers simultaneously instead of merely one number. There are a variety of strategies that they employ to make their probability of wining somewhat better.
For a start, many roulette gamers would determine whether or not the table is European or American. When they realize that the game is American, then they walk off 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 each bestow the player.
And if it’s odds we’re talking about, it’s pretty obvious that you’re better off playing European roulette. If you wish to get rich, then there’s certainly no room for your patriotism.
The reason is, the American Roulette table has 38 numbers compared to the European roulette table which only has 37. The difference lies in the tables’ zeroes. The European roulette has one and the American version has two. The casinos win money twice as fast in the American roulette as they do with the European roulette. This means that you, the player, will lose your money twice as fast.
So avoid the American Roulette tables because they simply won’t cut it.
When you are playing roulette, it is usually more enjoyable to bet on a single number because it offers you greater rewards, when the ball happens to land on your number. However if you’re truly serious about winning at roulette, you should never bet on a single number. That would give 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 will discover that betting on one number is a really risky act.
So, instead of placing your whole bet on only one number, you can place bets 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 whenever you are lucky.
You may also bet on columns if you choose to. Sure, this strategy somewhat decreases your chances of getting a big downpour, but on the other hand, it will allow you the opportunity to win at a more gradual but surer pace rather than lose everything with a single unlucky bet.
