Tips for Playing Roulette at the Online Casino - Saturday 12th of March 2005

Roulette is a very popular game at both the online casinos as well as the land based casinos. The reason people love to play roulette is because it is fairly straight forward. When playing at your online casino you??ll find two types of games to choose from: strategic and luck based games. Games like poker and blackjack rely on a basic level of skill, strategy, practice and understanding. Then there are games like slots and roulette that simply rely on the spin of a wheel or the pull of a lever and within a short period of time, the outcome of the game is decided by fate. It??s impossible to somehow influence the course of the game when paying roulette but there are a few tips you can take into consideration which may help you improve your odds of winning. First of all roulette comes in two variations: European roulette and American roulette. The main difference is that all American roulette games use a double-zero roulette wheel which has pockets numbered from 1 to 36, plus 0 and 00 for a total of 38 pockets. The Europe roulette has a single-zero wheel and no 00 giving it a total of 37 slots. What this means is the European roulette game offers the player better odds of winning right off the bat so if your favorite online casino offers both games always choose the European version for a better chance at winning. Apart from that one key piece of advice, the other ways to improve your chances of winning at roulette at the online casinos is by understanding the betting system and the odds based on the numbers you choose. There are several different bets you can make when playing roulette at an online casino. One is known as a "straight bet," in which you simply bet on one number. If your number comes up, you'll be paid 35-1. The payout is good but the odds are slim. Also, there even money, or 1-to-1, meaning if you win you get paid out the same amount you wagered. For even money bets you can wager on either of the two colours: red or black. If you put a chip on red then a red number must come up in order for you to win. If the ball lands on a black number, 0 or 00 - you lose. The same applies to black. You??ve got a 50/50 chance when you bet on a colour. Another even money bet is the odd or even bet. If you put a chip on odd then the ball must land on an odd numbered slot in order for you to win. If it lands on 0, 00, or an even number - you lose. The exact same principle applies if you decide to bet on the even numbers. The 1 through 18 and 19 through 36 bets also pay 1-to-1. If you bet on any number from 1 through to 18 you only win if a number from 1 through 18 comes in and you lose if the ball lands on 0, 00 or a number higher than 18. The same principle applies to bets made on 19 through 36. Try a few rounds of roulette at your favorite online casino and see how it works hands on.
