Before you even start to play Roulette there are few things you should consider. The game is all about the roll of a marble around the wheel. Whatever that marble lands on is going to determine whether you win or not. So it is not in the wheel you should be placing your luck or wager. Instead the table is where the playing tips for roulette are going to come in handy. On the table you have several bets that you can place and if you know which bets to place you will have more success at winning over time than that big score.
When you make a bet you need to do so with the units you have in mind. For example if you have 200 dollars that you intend on betting in this round of games you need to decide how many games you want to play. If you want to play ten rounds of roulette with your 200 dollars then the structure of your wagers should be 20 dollars bet per round. You can choose how you make these bets.
Remember that with an inside bet on one number you have the potential to win 36:1, meaning you get 36 dollars for every dollar you bet. The odds on this wager are in the houses favour. In other words the likelihood of winning is extremely low.
To bet wisely with the 20 dollars from our example you would want to place at least one outside bet, if not a cover bet as well. When you place an even money bet you don't want to play black and odds or red and even at the same time. If you have ever looked at a roulette wheel you will understand why. There are 36 numbers of varying colours and 8 of those numbers are going to be odd when you bet only on black. The same is true for red and even. There are only 8 even numbers in red. It would be wiser if you bet on black and even because you have more even numbers in black, and the converse is true of the red and odd.
When you first begin to play roulette most individuals tell you to bet red and black. This is a cover bet in which you would be even on the wager you place. For example if you bet 10 on red and 10 on black you are wagering on all 36 numbers, so one of the bets will win. This means you come away without losing or gaining any more. While it helps you to learn the rules, it isn't going to get you anywhere. That is why you are better to choose the black and even or red and odd bets. You are covered for some of the same numbers, meaning you could end up getting double you bet or making even. For example if you bet on red and odd, and both won you would get even money for each bet.
