Roulette Tips on Betting Options

Roulette can seem like a pretty difficult game to play if you haven't actually been introduced properly. The theory is simple, but when you add in all of the different bets and really want to win you need to follow some tips. The first tip that can ever be offered when you are learning Roulette is to play the outside bets only. We will get into an explanation of why so that you understand where this tip is coming from.

On the Roulette table you have inside and outside bets. The inside bets have the lowest probability for you to win at the game and the better house edge. When gambling you will want to choose a bet that have the most advantages for you and not the house. In Roulette this means you need to place one of the several outside bets.

The most come outside bets will be the even money bets. These are bets in which you place your wager on 18 numbers. The 18 numbers can be odd, even, black or red. The reason it is called even money bet is because you win 1:1 odds. You also have the highest probability of winning at 1.111 to 1.

Other outside bets allow you to bet on 12 numbers in the column. This is a little riskier than the even money outside bet, but it is a sure chance of getting a win more often. The Roulette wheel is only going to land on one number every spin. This number is going to be random and the marble will be changed out after 8- 12 hours of play depending on the casino, so that there is no issue. Even betting on 18 numbers you still have a chance to lose because you might have played on red with a black number coming up. This is the gamble you take, but knowing that if you play 18 numbers you will get 1:1 back you have a better chance of stock piling a little money over time as you play with less risk.

If you do decide to place an inside bet rather than the outside bet, you should cover that bet. In other words you should place the outside bet that will cover the inside bet you just made. This way if the number you chose is hit, you get more of the winnings, but if it misses you still have a chance to recoup your losses with the outside bet.

By playing with this tip to only play outside bets you get to have fun longer. If you blow your winnings on high chances you aren't going to be playing for a long period of time. This statement is true of online and land casinos because the games and rules of the same. You need to play with a winning strategy and tips in order to make sure you come out winning more than you not winning. Gambling is a risk by definition, but there is no sense in making it harder.

I have to disagree with the first line and statement on this tip. Roulette is definitely not a hard game to play nor to understand. Anyone can play roulette and a 2 minute discussion on the game would give them all the information they need to understand how to play this game. I also think that it's definitely not a game that involves a significant level of skill!
