Roulette - Win at Roulette with a good Strategy

Roulette rules allow the greatest variety of possible ways you can wager, irrespective of playing in a land based Casino or at an Online Casino. If you've never tried it, the game is easy to learn and we'll show you strategies that will help make you a winner. Remember that luck comes easier if you know what you're doing.

Even though there are 11 different kinds of bets, it is an easy game to play. The only skill required is deciding how much and on which number(s) to bet. Like in every game of chance, if you want to win you must first know the roulette rules, then rely on both, luck and strategy.

In North America Roulette is played on a wheel having 38 compartments numbered 1 to 36, 0 and 00. The player has a 1 in 37 chance of winning and gets paid 35 to 1, a 5.26% house edge. (European roulette uses a single-zero wheel, it has a house edge of only 2.70%. Many online casinos, like Kiwi Casino, offer single-zero roulette online games; always opt for the lower odds when you find them.)

The number fields are alternately red and black, except 0 and 00, which are green. The numbers themselves alternate between high/low and odd/even, with the 0 directly opposite the 00. The wheel spins counter-clockwise while a little white ball rolls in the opposite direction. The ball drops into one of the slots and that is the winning number.

The numbers on the wheel are also printed on the table layout where wagers are placed. Look closely at the table layout and you'll see that there are "inside" and "outside" sections. You'll understand how "inside" and "outside" betting works after you've become familiar with the 11 different types of roulette bets you can make, along with their payoffs. These rules apply to both roulette online and playing roulette in a land based casino:

THE SIX INSIDE BETS:

One Number: Pays 35 to 1. Put your wager on any number from 1 to 36, or 0 and 00. Be sure your chips are inside the square and do not touch the line.
Two Numbers: Pays 17 to 1. Place your chip (or chips) on the line between two numbers. If either number comes up you win.
Three Numbers: Pays 11 to 1. To choose a row of 3 numbers position your bet on the line that separates the "inside" and "outside" areas.
Four Numbers: Pays 8 to 1. To make this bet, place your wager on a four-number intersection. You win if one of the four numbers is hit.
Five Numbers: Pays 6 to 1. Don't make this bet! It's the only one that gives the house an extra 2 % advantage!
Six Numbers: Pays 5 to 1. This bet is placed between two three-number rows on the line that divides the "inside" and "outside" fields.

THE FIVE OUTSIDE BETS:

12-Number Column Bet: Pays 2 to 1. Put your wager in one of the spots marked "2-1" at the opposite end of zero and double zero.
12-Number Numerical Bet: Pays 2 to 1: Choose between 1st, 2nd, and 3rd twelve. You're betting on numbers 1 to 12, 13 to 24, or 25 to 36 respectively.
18 Numbers Red / Black. Pays 1 to 1. To make this wager, place your chip(s) on the red or black diamond.
18 Numbers Odd / Even: Pays 1 to 1. There are 18 of each. Take your pick.
18 Numbers High / Low: Pays 1 to 1. Will the winning number be between 1 to 18, or between 19 and 36?

If the minimum total wager is $5 and you are using $1 chips, you may place one or more in each of 5 different "inside" spots or bet all of them on one number, as long as the total adds up to the table minimum. You may cover as many inside numbers as you wish, as long as the total does not exceed the table maximum.

When making outside bets, you cannot divide the table minimum over several fields. The whole amount must be placed as one wager on one decision. You may, of course, place more than one bet and/or bet more than the required minimum, but not more than the table maximum. Never bet more than you can afford to lose, and always quit when you have won as much as you set out to win - such as double your stake. Start cautiously, until you know exactly how the game works and you feel confident.

A Fun Roulette System:

Can you win at roulette with a Roulette System? System betting means you're using a specific strategy to improve your rate of success. However, in the long run, the odds favor the casino and no system can change that fact. That is not to say this simple system can't make you a winner at roulette in the short term. What makes this 1 - 3 - 2 - 6 system attractive is that you risk only two betting units for a chance to win ten units. You can make a nice profit with a minimal investment.

The first bet is one unit, if you win, add another unit, making the second bet a total of three units. If you win the second bet, there are 6 units on the table. Remove four units, making your third bet two units. If it wins add two more units, making it a total of six units for your fourth bet. If the fourth bet wins you'll collect a total of 12 units, of which ten units are profit!

If you lose the first bet, the loss is one unit. Assuming you win the first, but lose the second bet, your net loss is two units. If you win the second, but lose the third bet, you have a profit of two units. If you win the first three bets but lose the fourth bet, you'll break even.

If you lose the second bet five out of six times and win four consecutive bets just once, you'll be right back to even. Use this system for even-money (red/black, odd/even or high/low) roulette bets.

Always remember that your bank roll should at all time be kept on a tight lead, and these financial rules that you imply to yourself should be applied whether you Play Online Casino games or in land based casinos.
