Roulette Playing Tips
So now you know the different types of bets, and the odds of winning on each bet. You have an idea on how to develop strategy, and you know the proper roulette etiquette. Now, onto specific roulette playing tips.
First off, you've probably seen books and Internet advertisements for various "can't miss" roulette systems. Don't put too much stock into their systems, the people who publish these systems are making money from selling books, not using their systems. Roulette is a game of chance; there is no secret mathematical formula that will allow you to gain an edge on the casino. There is no such thing as a biased game, and the casinos are watching their dealers like a hawk for any signs of corruption.
Our first tip is to find a European roulette wheel, as the odds of winning using it are increased, due to the fact that the wheel has one less number. People are growing more savvy, and demanding that European roulette wheels be included in traditional American casinos.
Start out with even money bets, such as red/black or low/high bets. Straight up bets may allure you with their 35/1 payouts, but you'll probably lose your stack of money before hitting one.
Always manage your money. Don't blow it all in one bet, split your money into smaller chunks so that you can last a longer amount of time and have more fun. Decrease your bets when you are on a losing streak, and increase your bets when you are winning.
Above all, have fun. Roulette is a social game, so put on your suit, get some free drinks and have a good time at the table.
