Roulette is, without a doubt, the most popular game among those who make up a casino. The glamor associated with the gaming world is best represented in roulettes since it is impossible to enter any casino in the world without finding several tables dedicated to this game.
However, you may not have known that there are two types of roulette: European and American. They are almost identical, and the game model is practically the same, but they have a vital difference: European roulette has 37 squares: from numbers 1 to 36 and, in addition, 0; but American roulette has 38 boxes: the same numbers from 1 to 36 and, in addition, 0 and double zero.
What does that mean? That the player’s chances of winning at roulette are reduced when he plays American roulette. It is the so-called banking advantage: in European roulette, banking has 1 in 37 chances of winning, that is, 2.7 percent; while in American roulette, the probability increases to 2 of 38, that is, 5.4 percent.
Once we know the differences between European and American roulette, it is time to find the tricks that will make us winning players in this exciting game. Of course, always keep in mind that, as in all games of chance, nobody can guarantee success.
The first thing to keep in mind is that many players approach roulette without any prior strategy; that is, they bet on some number or other possibilities such as red or black, relying solely on chance. But there are formulas that allow you to bet on roulette with more guarantees of success than traditional bets.
- Lean on the probability to cover as many of the numbers in play as possible.
If, for example, we bet on two of the three dozen numbers, we will have a 66 percent probability of correct answers. If, in addition, we combine that bet with red or black, the probability increases to more than 83 percent.
- Betting on groups of numbers
Depending on their placement in the roulette wheel, the numbers are divided between ‘neighbors of 0’, ‘orphans,’ and ‘third of the cylinder.’ The neighbors of 0 are 22, 18, 29, 7, 28, 12, 35, 3, 26, 32, 15, 19, 4, 21, 2 and 25. A third of the cylinder is made up of 33, 16, 24, 5, 10, 23, 8, 30, 11, 36, 13, and 27. Meanwhile, the orphans are 1, 20, 14, 31, 9, 17, 34, and 6.
But without a doubt, the favorite tricks of the players to win at European roulette are those that use some of the most famous game strategies available. These are the three best known:
It is the simplest and, at the same time, the most used. It consists of betting a unit on red or black; if we hit, we save that unit and bet again; if we fail, we double our bet; if we fail again, we double again, and so on until the unit won is saved and saved again. With this strategy, there is a risk that a bad streak of reds or blacks in a row will lead our bank.
- D’Alembert :
A method that a French mathematician invented in the 18th century that reduces losses compared to the Martingale. It is about betting an amount, for example, 10 euros; if we win, we keep it; if we lose, we repeat the bet by reducing one euro and so on until we win again.
- Fibonacci :
It consists of betting amounts following the sequence of numbers that the famous Italian mathematician discovered. We start by betting one euro: if we win, we save it; if we lose, we bet two on the next; if we lose, we go to 3; if we lose, 5 … And so the 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, etc. The risk of this method is to lose our bank very quickly.…
