Roulette Basics

Tip 1: Choose your roulette table carefully. There are two main types of roulette tables – European roulette table and American roulette table. The European roulette table has only one zero slot, whereas the American roulette table has a second one. Because of this, the American table has a much higher house edge of over 5.6%, compared to the 2.8% of the European table. So our first roulette tip is to always play with the European table where possible.

Tip 2: Bankroll management. It’s important that you know how to manage your roulette bankroll – know how much you have, how much you can afford to lose and more importantly how much you want to win before quitting.

Tip 3: Know the roulette odds. One thing that many new roulette players fail to understand is just how the roulette table breaks down in terms of roulette payouts and odds. The single numbers pay out 35:1 which seems like a large amount, but the odds of landing on them are 37:1 or about a 2.7% chance. The bets such as even/odds, and red/black pay out 1:1 which doesn’t seem like much, but they have a 37:18 chance of paying out, or roughly 48.6% chance of winning.
