# Wagers to Understand in Roulette Part 1

In the game of roulette you are going to have to learn about the wagers. The easy part of the game is the wheel and how it works. All the croupier will do is spin the wheel and then luck kicks in. The beginning of the game is solely based on luck so that means you won’t have a lot of ways to influence it.

The strategy comes in though once you start working with the wagers. There are a lot of wagers to learn but they aren’t all difficult. In fact, the most commonly used wagers in roulette are relatively straightforward. One of the most common is the ‘straight-up bet.’ This is a wager that is used normally by newer players because of how simple it is. Players get to wager on one single number for the ball to land on. When the croupier spins, you pick a number from one to thirty-seven or one to thirty-eight (depending on the wheel you are using.) All you have to do is place your wager on the square you want to wager on.

One slightly more complex wager is the split bet where you wager on two different numbers that are adjacent. This can be either adjacent vertically or horizontally. This is another wager that a lot of new players love to work with. Once you master these two wagers, you can start to work with the more complex ones.

Wagers in the game of roulette are critical to understand. Sure you know that the wheel is based on luck. The croupier spins the wheel and the ball falls where it will. This part of the game is solely about luck. You want to remember that and not strategize this part. The part of the game though that you do have to strategize is the wager.

The strategy is what helps you to keep on making the most of the returns when you are gambling. Here is where every good gambler know they can make up ground and minimize their losses. It is a way to play the hands or situation and make the most of it.

# How to Break Down Gambling and Your Funds

If you are trying to set your bankroll you should always do some math before and after.

Remember what by definition the bankroll is- it is the total amount of funds you are going to wager throughout one online gambling session. Some players have a specific amount they take with them to deposit at the online casino every time they play. Other players vary the amount depending on their month’s revenue.

Whichever option you pick you have to keep on thinking in terms of reality. Let’s say you have \$3,000 in bills every month and bring in \$4,200. That leaves \$1,200 extra. If you plan on playing at the online casino sites every Friday night throughout the month, you should portion out \$400 per session. This is a good way to make sure that you have money every day you want to play.

On the other hand, let’s say you work on commission and made \$1,200, \$1,500 and \$2,000 extra throughout three consecutive weeks. You could set a limit like \$500 per igaming session, or take 50-percent of each amount to wager with. The amount you spend is completely based on what is most comfortable to you. You should consider this limit wisely, but once you do, you should have fun with it.

Some casino players like to break down their gambling session into how long they plan on wagering.

For example, let’s say they want to wager for four hours. To some gamblers this is the most critical- they want to spend a lot of time at the casino. This is mostly true for senior citizens who may be working on a fixed income. They want their dollars to stretch as far as possible with their igaming sessions. If they have \$300 to wager with and 3 hours of time, they should be wagering at \$100 per hour. This is the way to never run out of cash but still be able to wager the entire time they are at the casino.

There is a lot of math to determining the bankroll limits, but a lot of your wagering pattern should also follow logic. Make sure that you are always working within your limits so that you can continue to have a good and worry-free gambling session at the casinos.

# Playing at the Slots Parlor – Part 1

When you go to the slots parlor you may be confused. The bottom line for even small slots parlors is that they can be difficult to maneuver. Slots parlors are filled nowadays with huge arrays of games. You can pick from them to see what interests you or what fits into your budget. It all depends on what your particular needs are for that moment. If you are new to gambling you may be confused as to where to start.

Here are some tips on how to maneuver.

First of all, your primary concern should be your budget. You want to make sure you set your bankroll and find games that fit into it. For example, let’s say you have \$200 to wager and want to play at the slots parlor for two hours. You shouldn’t wander over to the \$20/spin games! This is a sure-fire way to run out of coins well before your two-hour time slot is done! You want to pace yourself but also pace your budget.

As a general rule of thumb, you never should wager more than 5% of your overall bankroll on any one game. That means in the above example of \$200, you should never be wagering more than \$10 on any single game.

The other thing to remember about slots play is that it can get out of hand very quickly. Research has shown that the average player can spin the reels 100-times per hour. This means if the game takes \$0.50, the player is spending \$50-per-hour. If that fits into their budget, it’s fine.

But, what if it doesn’t? Slots are coming with warning labels these days that remind players of how costly they can be. The games can add up quickly due to how fast a player can spin. Add to that the fact that some games are coming with an “auto-spin” feature to them where players don’t even have to manually spin, and you can see how this may be a recipe for financial disaster!

Make sure you know your limits well when you are at the slots parlor so you don’t go over board with the games and their cost to your bankroll.
