How to Play Roulette Wisely

Roulette has always been a casino cash cow. It’s a big earner for these gambling establishments, what with its huge number of players which includes really generous high rollers. This game has seen many players get rich and go bankrupt, or go through an alternating series thereof, all to the benefit of the house. Both the casino and roulette’s players can agree on one thing however: roulette is simply fun and addicting.

The problem however, is that most players place a great emphasis on the winning part. They tend to trust in roulette’s nearly 50% winning odds on even-money bets that they can’t help but waste away money chasing after a win. In such a way, they lose their bankroll so easily, and thus the game. It is therefore no wonder that many enter the casino with a jolly demeanor, only to leave looking like a broken man.

To prevent such scenario from happening again, here are a few tips that can help you play roulette wisely:

1. Don’t start with large bankroll.

If you’re that willing to take the bait of the money-eating roulette table, bring only what extra money you have and leave the budget for the bills, kids, grocery, and other important stuff alone. Better yet, bring just enough that could sustain you for the time you’ve allotted to playing roulette or casino gaming as a whole. Just remember not to bring an unnecessarily large bankroll to join those ├╝ber rich high rollers or any other reason.

2. Save your profits.

Roulette is lionized by many fans as an easy to win game, thanks to the roulette players’ ability to bet on even money bets like red and black. Winning a spin can be easy for sure, but making profit truly is a difficult task. Many use roulette strategies and other means to achieve this but the truth is, profit is just as likely to come up as a loss, although statistically, the latter is a lot more frequent due to the addictive nature of the game. Thus it is important to save your wins and simply make bets within your initial budget. This is to ensure that once your losses are recovered – if ever – you’ll be sure that you have profit.

3. Do not attempt to recover an exhausted bankroll.

Speaking of recovering losses, do not even try to recover your bankroll after you’ve exhausted it. Your chances of winning are uncertain by then, and by then, you’ll be tapping on money that’s not meant for roulette. Losing is a sad fact of life and it’s best to accept it as it is.

4. Have fun.

As usual, let’s end with this little advice as a constant reminder of what roulette truly is – a fun though guilty entertainment. Play simply for the game’s amusement value and keep the thought of making profit out of your mind. You’ll make money if you’re lucky and you’ll lose some if the house beats you to it. It’s all random and you can’t do anything about it other than have some precious fun.

Now that, folks, are but a few tips on how to play roulette wisely. What this all boils down to is this: Enjoy roulette, but don’t spend much to let it drag you down the poverty hole.

Seven Precautions You Need to Take When Playing High Limit Roulette

High limit roulette is a high stakes game. Yes, you can win spectacular sums of money through it. But the risk of losing spectacular sums of money through it is real too. Indeed, if we are to be honest, knowing how roulette is designed, we’d have to agree that the chances of losing spectacularly in high stakes roulette are much higher than the chances of winning spectacularly. That is because, even with the best of strategies, the house is always certain to have an edge over you. It is through this edge that the house (the casino) is expected to make a profit, and hence remain in business. That aside though and keeping in mind the sums of money involved in high limit casino, you need to be cautious. By way of specific precautions, you need to:

1. Ensure that you are in a reputable online casino: never play high stakes roulette in a casino of dubious reputation. We have seen people play on such dubious casinos, only to end up experiencing difficulties retrieving their winnings, in case they are lucky. Simply put, our experience with such dubious casinos is to the effect that ‘it is always easy to give them money, but extremely difficult to get money from them.’

2. Avoid bet wastage: bet wastage is advised against, wherever and whenever roulette is played. But this piece of advice is often ignored, when the amounts being played for are inconsequential. Bid wastage is, however, a mistake you can’t afford to make in high stakes roulette.

3. Tamper emotions (greed and fear) with prudence: ideally, your moves in high stakes roulette should be informed by your (well thought-out) strategy. At no point should your moves be emotionally motivated. There are times when you find yourself faced with a conflict, between what is obviously a good move, as per your strategy, and what seems to be a good move, as per your emotions. The latter usually manifest through your so-called intuition. But we all know that our intuitions can at times be very wrong. It is best to stick with what is objectively correct, as per the well-tested strategy.

4. Monitor the table consistently: in low stakes roulette, you can afford table-monitoring lapses. In high stakes roulette, one such lapse can cost you a fortune, by either causing you to lose spectacularly, or by denying you a huge win you’d have otherwise gotten.

5. Ensure you are playing with money you can afford to lose: the probability of losing is always there, and it is greater than the probability of winning. Ensure that you are not playing high limit roulette with your retirement savings!

6. Always go for high stakes European roulette: the small difference in winning/losing probabilities between European and American roulette may seem small, but in high stakes roulette, fortunes are made or lost due to such small differences in odds.

7. Be sure of your strategy, and apply it consistently: even the best roulette strategy is useless, if it is not applied consistently. With low stakes roulette, you can afford to experiment. But in high limit roulette, you will be safer if you stick with well tried and proven strategies.
