Easy to understand, simple, and funny. All characteristics of Roulette. One of Casino’s top classics that also became famous in online casinos.

Roulette is very simple. But you should avoid some mistakes in order to maximize the chances of winning. Being aware of this is the first step to be successful.

Check the most common mistakes.

1- Choose a table with the least advantage for the casino.

It may seem like a detail, but the choice between American or European roulette can greatly influence your chance of winning. The only difference between the European game and the American game is that the American has one more zero (double zero) compared to the European game. This small detail makes the casino’s advantage double in the American game (5.26% against 2.7%). So, whenever possible, choose a table with the least advantage for the casino.

2- Pay attention to your bankroll limits

Like any other casino game, roulette requires a spending strategy. This is a fast-paced game and the money can quickly enter or exit from your account. For beginners it’s easy to get carried away by emotions, so the best tactic is to set a budget before entering the game. Through this practice, you can get longer periods at the table to enjoy the game.

3- Beware of betting systems

Over the years, a lot has been said about the strategies to be successful in roulette. In this game theories about betting systems are common, but the truth is that there is no evidence that these theories work. And why? Because nothing in this game is conditioned by previous moves. In this article, we talk about the Z System used by the big players. In theory, this negative progression system can work, but you need to have a good bankroll to double your bets whenever after every lost move.

4- Multiple bets do not increase the odds

Remember this: regardless of the number of bets you place, the house advantage (in percentage) will always be the same. This means that increase the number of bets can give you the wrong illusion of being in an advantageous position. A bad multiple bet can drain your budget. The advice we give is to start by betting on the outside table (colors, even or odd, or 1-18 / 19-36) where the chance of winning is 50%. Then, if the game is going well, increase the risk and look for multiple bets.

5- Try to cover losses

Raising bets to cover losses is a trend among casino gamblers and not just among the roulette players. Often to try to cover losses, players start betting money they don’t have. The advice we give is to never change your game strategy based on the results. Roulette is a pure lucky game, so if you have a defined strategy do not change it. Remember that there are no guarantees about the next move.
