Guide to Winning in Roulette

Roulette is a thrilling game of luck that has been in existence for ages and has survived over the years. While it is unlikely to get an edge or change the odds at the roulette table, using a mathematical strategy in placing your bets can ensure that you have a wonderful time playing roulette.

One strategy in placing your bets is to have knowledge of the value of each bet for every win without disrupting the betting process once you lose. Unless you are fortunate, it is useless to bet in one number because you could end up consuming your bankroll on a single spin of the wheel.

The simplest wager to make is the outside bet. In this kind of bet, you make a guess as to whether the ball will land on red or black, even or odd, high or low. The payout for these kinds of bet is even money which gives you the benefit of extending your playing time by making the lowest possible bet.

Another form of outside bet is the Martingale System. The idea with this kind of bet is to make a wager on any of the outside bets. When you lose, double your wager and make a similar bet and continue doubling up until you achieve a win. With a win, you would be paid your original bet plus an additional wager.

However, since majority of the tables have a betting ceiling, the bet you doubled will exceed the limit if you go on a losing streak. While it does not give an assurance that you will emerge the winner, it can help keep you in the game a little longer and if the stars are with you take home a hefty amount.

Group bets are wagers made on any number ranging from 1-12, 13-24, or 25-36. Likewise, column bets include all the numbers falling in any of the three columns within the boundaries of the table. The payout for both wagers is 2 to 1. You can also apply the Martingale System on these kinds of bets. While the winning chances are slim, you are enhancing your winning chances.

Another exciting betting system is by simply placing a single bet on one number for every spin. If the ball lands on your number before you have made 36 wagers then you can make money.

In the end, knowledge of roulette betting systems will increase your chances of making money and eventually have an exciting roulette venture.
