It’s easy to play online roulette, out of all the casino games roulette is arguably the simplest to pick up and the most fun in my opinion. There are some variation in the rules but not too much, to help I’ll summarise some of the important differences here. The betting in roulette is pretty straight forward so I won’t dwell too much on that the best way to get a feel for where you can place your bets is to pick any online roulette game, sign up for the free game and have a practice agen casino. The software will show you where you can place bets and you’ll soon pick it up – obviously if you’re not sure don’t practice in a money game !
The single most important thing to remember is always play on a European wheel, you’ll know this as there is a single ‘0’ on the wheel, if there’s more than one then quit – it makes a huge difference to your odds of winning.
Betting Strategies – they don’t work, it’s that simple. Don’t waste loads of money on betting strategies because there is no such thing as a guaranteed strategy. The usual one that gets touted as some sort of amazing secret is called Martingale and it’s based on doubling your bet each time the wheel is spun – it’s been around since the 18th Century and has yet to make anyone rich.
Learn to respect the ‘house edge’. Roulette is a game of chance which is why you can win, but the house does have an advantage called the house edge. The easiest example of the advantage is the number zero – if you place your money on red at evens money – the house against you has all the black numbers (plus the zero, giving it the edge). It might not sound much but varies roughly between 1 and 6% and is the reason why Casinos always win in the long run.
La Partage – a rule which lowers the house edge so is good for you. If a Zero is spun then all even money bets (odd, even, black, red) lose only half their stake. A similar rule is En Prison also in the players advantage.
