The game of roulette has long been fascinating to many people. While the original game did not involve numbers, the black and white spots on the wheel were the cornerstone of how the game is played today. Everyone seems to have different ways to win, but the best roulette strategy will have you cover as much of the board as possible.
The main reason that you want to do this is because you are looking to minimize your commitment and increase your chances of winning. More than likely, if you chase the big win, you are going to end up going broke. While you can still make wagers on individual numbers, most of your bets are going to be need to be on multiple numbers that will allow you to cover a high percentage of the board.
There are those that will insist that the best way to go is to be red and black all night long. If you do this, you have a 48.6% chance of winning on a single 0 wheel, and a 47.4% chance of winning on a wheel that features both a 0 and a 00. You can also choose to bet evens and odds with the same percentages.
The problem with this roulette strategy is that you have to be right more often than wrong in order to have a winning session. If you go on one small losing streak, you can be down a huge amount of money and little chance of getting it back unless you hit a streak that is just as hot. We all know how that works out.
Another common strategy is to bet 2 out of the 3 columns or dozens that offers a 2:1 payout. When you play the game this way, you are pretty much turning the bet into an even money play. If you bet $10 on two columns and one of them hits, you get paid $20 for the win and lose the other $10 bet. This gives you a profit of $10 when you win. This is hardly worth the risk.
Over the years, there are many strategies that have come and gone, but the best one seems to be to spread your money out in the middle of the board and make a small profit to grind out a win. This also enables you to truly enjoy the game and experience the true excitement that it has to offer.
In order to use this method, you will need to bet anywhere from 6-9 units on every roll. If you are only going to bet 6 or 7 units, you should not place any wagers on numbers straight up. Stick with corner bets that allow you to cover 4 numbers per roll. This roulette strategy will get you 2-3 units profit per roll when you win.
The other way to go is to bet 8-9 units on each roll. You would cover the same regular numbers and then also cover 2 numbers on a straight bet. While you will normally only break even or win one unit per roll, you now also have the opportunity to hit a 35:1payoff on two numbers while still covering almost 80% of the board.
The strategy you choose is up to your playing style. While you will never get a big score with the 6 and 7 unit betting strategy, you will at least be grinding out a small profit. When you implore the 8 and 9 strategy, you are only winning one unit or breaking even in most cases, but a small rush on your straight numbers can produce huge winnings. Just remember that whichever one you choose, it is going to be a grind, but you will be alive and racking up comp points in the process.
