It is important that you plan your roulette strategy to increase your chances of winning. You read it right: roulette is not just a game of luck. If you take some time to educate yourself, you can increase your chances of winning.
Martingale system, a European roulette strategy, is one of the easiest to understand. Mathematically, it is considered by many as the most reliable. Understand that it can only be used on the European roulette wheel. Bet whether you want red or black. You will have to stick to this colour until the end of the session. Place minimum bet of $1. You win the amount that you bet plus $1 if it lands on your chosen colour. If you lose, double the initial bet, so the new bet is $2. You will have to double this amount again if you lose. Statistics show that eventually, your chosen colour will have to win. Because you double the bet every time you lose, you can still recover the amount lost plus the value of your initial bet. Every time the chosen colour wins, the process starts, with the lowest denomination bet on the colour of your choice.
You can also try the James Bond strategy popularized by no other than James Bond. For instance, you decided to bet $200. On the high half (1-12), place $110; on the first third (19-36), put in $80; and then place $10 on one of the zeros. Accordingly, this strategy increases your winning chance to 81.5%.
You can use this other technique too: track the winning numbers of various wheel spins and determine whether and to what degree is favoured by the roulette wheel. Spend at least 20-30 minutes of tracking before you begin to bet.
Many seasoned players concentrate on placing their bets inside rather than outside. The payout of inside bets is bigger but you must know that you also have higher chances of losing inside. To enhance your chosen inside bets, you can use outside bets as well.
If you are new to playing roulette, it is hard to think that you can increase your winning chances through roulette strategies. The most important strategy however is to study the rules of the game first before putting in your first bet.
