Roulette is a table game that’s based completely on luck as there is no way to predict where the ball is going to land. All spins are completely random and the spin before has no bearing on the next spin of the wheel. Over the years there have been many strategies that have been proposed to beat the system, the most famous of which is a progressive betting system known as the Martingale. Here you’re required to double up on your next bet after you lose the previous bet. The Grand Martingale is another system where you double your bet and add an extra unit after a loss. Under no circumstances should you pay for a betting scheme because there is no assurance that you’ll win.
As much as online roulette is a game of chance there are ways you can increase your odds of winning. Firstly you need to learn the rules and understand the different betting options. The most realistic way of winning is by spreading your bets. Resist the temptation to place everything on one number and rather place lots of small amounts on a variety of numbers. This strategy will ensure that your bankroll lasts longer. You should also cease playing when you’re ahead in the short term as the longer you play the more you’ll begin to lose. If you have the choice then you should always play European roulette rather than American roulette as the house advantage is greater in the American version. By playing on the European wheel you’ll increase your odds of winning. If you are playing American roulette avoid the Five Number bet which is: 0, 00, 1, 2 and 3. It holds the dubious title of being the worst bet in roulette.
