Roulette is one of the most exciting and entertaining casino games to be found and many people enjoy taking the wheel for a spin.
Roulette is a casino game named after the French word meaning “little wheel” and the game is pretty easy to understand. The players place their bets on a single number, various groupings of numbers, the colours red or black, whether the number is odd or even, or if the numbers are high (19–36) or low (1–18).
To determine the winning number and colour, a croupier spins a wheel in one direction, and then spins a ball in the opposite direction. Eventually the ball falls into one of the coloured and numbered pockets on the wheel.
It’s random where the ball lands, but you can still do something to increase your chances of winning at the roulette. That is why we are going to introduce you to 2 roulette strategies you need to know.
The Martingale Roulette Strategy
The Martingale Roulette Strategy depends on doubling your bets after you take a loss, with the goal of recouping all previous losses and gaining a small profit. The idea with this strategy is, that if you place your bet only on a single colour and continue doubling it until you win, you recover your losses.
But it is important to know that often, the casinos have limits to how much you can bet. Therefore, there is a limit to how many times you can double your bet. Furthermore, it is difficult to win a lot of money with this strategy if you have lost just a few times in a row. For instance if your first bet is £5 and you lose five times in a row your next bet has to be £160 just to win £5.
If you still want to use this strategy you should begin with finding a table with a small minimum bet and a high maximum bet. It is essential that you start small, because you want the ability to double your losing bets as much as possible. You should place your bet on either black or red, even or odd or 1-18 or 19-36. If you win, keep the winnings and bet the same small wager again. If you lose, double the wager and try again.
Watch out for that gambler’s fallacy – just because one colour has won 100 times in a row doesn’t mean that the other colour is more likely to appear on the next spin.
The Reverse Martingale Roulette Strategy
The Reverse Martingale Roulette Strategy is the opposite of the Martingale Strategy. In the reverse strategy the main is increase your bets when you win and lower them after losing. Underneath is a how-to step by step guide to The Reverse Martingale Roulette Strategy:
Again you should begin with finding a table with a small minimum bet and a high maximum bet. And, again, you should place your bet on either black or red, even or odd, or 1-18 or 19-36. You have to keep your wager on the same spot on the table until you hit it, and if you keep losing, you should keep betting a very small amount.
When you hit your bet and win, you need to double your bet on the same spot for the next round. If you keep winning, keep doubling your bet, and if you lose, then move back down to your original bet.
The biggest disadvantage to this roulette strategy is that the method has everything to do with timing. The Reverse Martingale Strategy is really risky because as soon as you lose, you lose your entire earnings. For this strategy to work really well you need to hit a hot streak and quit before you lose, which is difficult for many gamblers.
So these are the two most popular roulette strategies. But which one is right for you? The only way to discover the best roulette winning strategy for you is by trying them out for yourself. You can try them out on an online roulette game. Be aware: there is a difference between American and European roulette wheels.
