Many people are attracted by the thrill of the spinning roulette wheel. They put their chips down on a number and eagerly wait for the ball to drop into a slot.  Roulette is a game of luck and chance.  There is no way to predict the outcome of the spin or to lower the house advantage. Due to the house advantage being the same across all bets but the five bet, there is no betting system that can work effectively to guarantee success. But there are still things that the savvy roulette player can do to increase his chances of winning.

The roulette player should play the single zero version of the game with its 2.7% house advantage instead of American roulette with its 5.25% house advantage.  Playing European roulette automatically provides a more favorable environment for the player than American roulette does.  This is why the game has always been more popular in Europe. Also if you are going to play online, shop around the different online casinos for the best deal.  Casinos have different sign up bonuses and different promotions.  Look for a casino that offers the single zero version with the “La Partarge” or “En Prison” rules.  This further lowers the house advantage to 1.35% in European roulette and 2.63% in American roulette.

If you are going to play roulette, you might as well play under the circumstances that give you the most favorable chance of winning.

More Valuable tips

Roulette is an exciting game but it is a game with addictive powers just as other forms of gambling are. Players get hooked on trying to beat the wheel. Players should never walk up to a roulette table or logon to an online casino without some sort of plan for playing.  This doesn’t mean a betting system since there are none that are proven to be consistent in increasing winnings in roulette.

It is easy to lose money gambling on any game in an online casino. The prudent player always has some plan for money management. This means a predetermined limit on the amount of money he/she can afford to wager.  This amount is established before the player begins to play and it consists of money that the player can afford to lose.  The player must have the self-discipline to quit when he reaches this limit. He never wants to be in the habit of adding more and more money to the table.  This is the way that gamblers are hurt financially when they don’t have the self-discipline to quit.

The other tip is to watch the way you bet. When players lose, they sometimes panic and start placing bets all over the layout in an attempt to recoup their losses. This is not a smart way to play.  You will probably increase the amount of your losses. Concentrate on playing one or two sections of the table, like even money bets.  This should be part of the plan you have before you begin to play games on online casinos.
