Roulette Tips

Roulette is easily one of the most popular table games in a casino. This is partly due to the fact that the house edge is minimal and the fact that it's a very social game. Although roulette is very much a game of chance here are a few tips that will help you maximize the odds in your favor of walking away with some profit.

  1. Never pay for roulette strategy. Sure they may be fun to try out, but they won't help you walk away with any profit. Check out some of the other roulette articles on the site to learn about some of these roulette betting systems.
  2. Always play the European roulette tables and try to stay away from the American roulette tables. Some casino will only offer American table, it's best to avoid these as the odds are much worse then the European tables.
  3. If you are playing on a European table then look for a table that offers the La Partage or In Prison rule. This is where a player has a chance to recover their original bet when the table lands on zero. This can only happen on bets that are at even odds.
  4. Set a financial goal before you start betting. For example is you bring $200 to the table then make a rule when you hit $400 you will quit. The reason for this is that in the long run the casino will win. It's not a question of will they but a question of when will they.
  5. Don't keep betting your “lucky number”. It's always best to spread your bets around.
  6. As with many casino games it's always good to follow a pattern. Bet high when you're winning and bet low when you're losing.
  7. As I've said with other casino games make sure you never play intoxicated. Alcohol will only make you take risks that you would normally stay away from.
  8. Don't view the roulette table as a method of making money fast. The game is entertainment and should be viewed as that.
