How to Play Roulette
November 2, 2008
Roulette is the perfect online casino game for millions of gamblers
as it combines enough simplicity with enough strategy and thought
with the variety of many different betting and money management
options to keep one’s mental interest. Beyond that roulette
is a most exciting game that offers a rush few other games can give
a player as the gamblers will often be near breathless waiting for
the wheel to stop spinning and the ball to finally fall into the
slot. The anticipation of players at a roulette wheel is hard to
match in any other game.
A roulette wheel has thirty-six numbered slots with an equal number
of red and black squares, along with an equal amount of odd and
even squares. An “American” style roulette wheel has
two green numbers of zero and double zero while a “European”
style roulette wheel has a single green zero slot. The European
wheels are the best for a player as it has TWICE the value of an
American style wheel or, to put it another way, half of the house
edge of an American style wheel.
Although the green slots ultimately give the house edge to the
online casino they come up no more than any other slots and players
can bet on those numbers coming up if they like.
There are a multitude of different gambling theories and money
management schemes at roulette starting with the “Martingale”
strategy in which the gambler doubles his bet after each loss until
he wins. The problem with this theory is that a house limit will
eventually stop a gambler using this strategy if he loses several
bets in a row and the Martingale theory has never beaten the casino
in the long run.
