If you want to learn about roulette then you should know a little about the game.
First of all, playing roulette it is a game of luck. That means you aren’t going to find a clear cut way to improve your results. Sure the game has some strategy to it when the various wagers come into play, but the basic game itself is solely based on luck.
The game is made up of a few distinct elements. There is the wheel. The wheel comes in two different forms- the European version and the American version. The European version of the game comes with 37 different pockets to it, while the American version has 38.
This one extra pocket changes the odds of winning the game. If you want to make the most of your wagering and your chances to win, then you want to work with the European wheel if you can. Sure it is “only” one pocket difference, but that difference changes your wager from 1-in-38 to 1-in-37, or 0.027 and 0.026. That one small change increases your odds. In the world of gambling you have to remember too that the “House always wins.” The odds are stacked in favor of the House no matter what you do.
Because of this, when you get the chance to increase you odds (even in the slightest way), you want to take it.
Secondly, when you are learning how to play roulette you want to work with the part of the game that you can control- the wagers. In roulette wagering there are a lot of different wagers to work with.
You can wager on the ball landing on a specific pocket color, a specific pocket number, or any combination of the two. There are inside bets and outside bets. This is the part of the game that takes some time to learn. You want to spend some time studying the game as you wager due to the intricacies of the wagers used. Watching other tables sometimes can help you to get the most understanding of the wagers.
Once you understand them, then you should move slowly into using them yourself. This is the best way to understand the game and start to master the part of the game that is in your control.
