5 Basic Roulette Strategies That Every Player Should Know

Roulette is a simple casino game. It’s easy to learn and it offers many different betting options, allowing player a dynamic gaming experience with the potential to be highly rewarding!

As the rules are simple, the strategies that one needs in order to ensure the best odds and chances of winning are fairly basic.

This is a game of chance and many people get caught up in very complicated roulette systems that often don’t yield a very high return (on effort, time and/or money)!

Here are the 5 basic strategies that you should keep in mind while playing roulette:

5Know Your Wheel!

There are two types of roulette games and each one comes with its own roulette wheel. The first one, American Roulette, has a double 0 slot (e.g., 0 and 00). The second, European Roulette has only one 0 slot. With more chances to hit the zero, by definition the American Roulette wheel has worse odds than its European counterpart (5.26% to 2.63% to be exact)..

4Remember that Previous Spins Have No Influence on Future Spins


We all wish we control our luck but in a game of chance, it’s important to understand that random numbers and random outcomes are just that, random. Saying that previous spins affect future spins is about as scientific as predicting the weather based on what’s on TV. No relation.

3Keep Within the Limits of Your Budget


Define your budget and control it. That’s the key to successfully staying in control of how much you lose (which inevitably means WINNING MORE)! Set a bankroll and stick to it; place bets within your bankroll. Easy as pie.

2Don’t Chase Losses


If you’re down on your luck, you’re down on your luck. That’s one of the realities of gambling. The trick is to simply stop. Don’t chase your loses, it will only end in disappointment. Take a break instead and come back later.

1Don’t Pay For Roulette Systems!


There is no reason why you should pay for roulette systems. You’re already putting your hard earned money on the table when you play roulette. There is no proven advantage to expensive roulette systems and today you can find all the information you need online for free.

With that, I wish you good luck and most of all, enjoy and have fun!
