Roulette is one of the most fun games you can play when you go to a casino – you can play live table roulette with other people inside a land-based casino, or play the video version of roulette online for a more personal experience. The best part about roulette is that anyone can play it without requiring too much knowledge or skill. This is why it’s one of the most popular casino games around today (let alone of all time), and for newcomers especially, it is way more fun and easy to pick up than games like Blackjack or Texas Hold’em.
If it’s your first time playing roulette either online or offline, and you’re wanting to learn how to play and win some real money in the process, it’s probably best to play roulette online on your own at first, so that if you make some silly mistakes or bad bets, you’re not going to feel too intimidated by older, seasoned pros at the live tables. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the top 5 online roulette tutorials you must watch…
#1 – How to Play Roulette Online
How to Play Roulette is pretty much a must-watch for everyone; this video gives you all the odds of the game, and more importantly the probabilities for placing bets on roulette. It also tells you the difference between odd/even bets, as well as the kind of wager amounts you should place and the calculated payouts you can expect to receive. It also goes into the different bet types; betting on multiple numbers, splitting your bets, betting on the field, columns and corners.
It’s easy to understand, and it also gives you some of the other ways to place bets you might not have thought of. For example, the six line bet that it pays 5/1. It’s a helpful video that allows you to get the exact figures and statistics on where the house edge sits in the variant you are playing i.e. American, European or French versions, and also where the casino has the upper hand. These are all very useful facts to keep in mind when you start playing roulette online for real money. Naturally, the more you know about the game, the longer the money lasts in your bankroll, and the more fun you’ll have!
#2 – How to Beat an Online Casino Playing ‘No Zero’ Roulette Pro
This video is the perfect way to start off if you’re new to playing roulette online and looking to play for real money. It can take a while to get used to the new and/or different terms used, which is why the video tutorial is certainly worth a watch because it breaks it down into manageable chunks. It’s based on online roulette only and there is no live table version; however, the odds here are more favorable for the player as there isn’t a zero pocket, but you still get a 35:1 payout on a certain number coming up.
The commentator of the video also gives plenty of helpful information based on the randomness and fairness of playing a roulette game without the zero, as well as the best way to maximize your gaming sessions, how cash outs work, the scope of minimum and maximum bets, and ways to give yourself the best possible chances of winning. This makes it a great place to start if you want to easily learn how to play video roulette online. And especially for online roulette games with equal odds.
#3 – 10 Tips for 100% WIN on Online Roulette Games
This video gives you a more detailed account of online roulette with 10 handy tips. The video is tailored around the European version of online roulette where the odds are better, and where there is only one zero to help you statistically get more value for your bets. The video also goes into detail about inside/outside bets and the strategy used to maximize your profits. One of the tips is to start placing small bets at $1 each at first, in order to minimize risks and help you understand the way in which the betting systems work.
The commentator also advises players to set realistic targets and know how much you can afford to lose, i.e. never be prepared to lose more than 40% of your bankroll so you’re able to recover any losses much easier. In one of the other tips, he speaks about applying a strategy when playing online roulette for real money; under the knowledge that using the same strategy every time is not guaranteed to increase your chances of winning, and you should make a conscious effort to redefine your strategy regularly in order to boost your odds.
#4 – The Real Hustle: Roulette Scam
The first and most important thing to say about this video is DO NOT TRY THIS, you WILL be arrested. However, it’s nice to see what’s involved when people actually do try and cheat the system, and if you are playing live tables, it can be good to be aware of these things if someone is indeed stupid enough to try and cheat. It’s basically all about how they get their bets on AFTER the wheel has stopped spinning and a certain number has come up. It’s clever the way they can work together and move their hands, however all casinos will have video cameras over the tables, so there is absolutely no way you will be able to do this in a casino these days.
And as we all know, you can’t cheat at roulette in an online casino, because they use complex software which ensures the player has no way or predicting where the ball will land, or giving them any opportunities to place bets when the wheel has stopped. It’s simply impossible… but still interesting to know!
#5 – Red or Black? Betting Your Whole Life on One Roulette Spin
We mainly chucked this one in there just for giggles, but we’ll say now that you should take this one with a pinch of salt, and probably not set out to do it yourself! In this video we see British man Ashley Revell put his entire life savings ($136,000) on a single roulette spin, and he travelled all the way to Las Vegas to do it. Rumor has it, a British TV network followed him around for a month or so in order to gear him and everyone else up for what is to come.
Amongst the excitement of the crowds, the young man must decide whether to bet on black or red, knowing full well the consequences involved if he happens to make the wrong choice. It’s a video that will probably have you biting your nails for a few minutes as everyone patiently waits for the ball to land, and we certainly won’t spoil the outcome for you at this point! But despite how entertaining it is, it’s definitely not something most people would do, or what we would recommend.
