Roulette is highly regarded as one of the most popular games that you can play in land-based and online casinos, and its popularity is mainly attributed to the fact that it is easier to play compared to most table games like poker and blackjack since it involves less strategy. However, even though it is a relatively easy game, there are still some strategies that you need to learn in roulette in order to win more bets.
Online roulette is usually much harder to play than real roulette or the ones that you play in land-based casinos. The online version’s difficulty lies in the complete randomness of the digital roulette wheel, where it would spin at a fixed speed, unlike real roulette wheels that have speeds that are determined by how well the dealer spun them. So, there are slightly different strategies that should be applied to online roulette compared to land-based roulette. To learn more about these strategies, here are some of the important things to keep in mind when playing roulette online.
Only Play in Trusted and Licensed Online Casinos
The number one rule that should be applied by players not only in roulette but in online gambling as a whole is to only play in trusted and licensed online casinos. Licensed online casinos are regulated and authorized by a legitimate gambling authority, so you will be sure that the website is safe and their games are fair. To find the license owned by the online casino, you can search at the bottom of their website’s home page, or you can just visit their About Us page that gives you details about the history of the casino and where they got the license.
In addition to licensed online casinos, you must also make sure that they are trusted, which can be done by looking at reviews or reading forum posts online. If the online casino has an excellent reputation on the internet, then that means that it is 100% trusted by a lot of players on the internet.
Learn How to Play Different Kinds of Roulette
A common misconception among beginners is that there is only one type of roulette, but there are actually different variations of roulette that are available in various casinos around the world. So, it is important for you to know which variation of the table game you want to play [valid where legal], as it may have a different set of rules to what you are used to.
The most common and arguably the most popular type of roulette is the traditional roulette, otherwise known as European roulette, which only has one green “zero” zone on the wheel. The other popular roulette type is the American roulette that has two “zero” zones. There are many other peculiar and uncommon variations of roulette that you may find in trusted online casinos, so be prepared to learn more about them before you play.
Know Your Chances of Winning
Betting on specific numbers and colors is essential to win more in roulette, so betting mindlessly is not advisable since it could lead to more losses, even though it is quite fun to do if you don’t really know how to play roulette. It is a common strategy for most veteran players to bet on a single number, which actually gives you more prizes compared to betting on colors or a specific combination of numbers. However, a single number has lower chances of winning, so you may not want to bet most of your chips on just one number.
If you don’t want the risk of losing a bet, you can just place some of your chips on colors or number combinations (like odd numbers, even numbers, consecutive numbers, etc.) so that you will have a higher chance of winning. For beginners, it would be best to just play safe rather than take bigger risks, especially in online roulette, where you can’t gauge how fast the wheel would go and where the ball will land.
Play the Free Games to Improve Your Decision-Making Skills
In order to lose your nervousness in betting or playing roulette, you may want to first play the free roulette games available on your preferred online casinos. By playing the free games, you will be able to play roulette countless times without losing money. The free roulette games would also help you to loosen up and feel confident in every bet you make. Furthermore, these free games can improve your decision-making skills, which are needed for you to have a quicker decision and response not only to your bets but also to the bets of other players.
As mentioned earlier, roulette is a relatively easy casino game that you can play even without really learning how to win on it. However, playing roulette blind will just lead to more losses and heartbreaks instead of fun and enjoyment, so it would be better if you can put time into learning basic strategies so that you can win more and have a better playing experience.
