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. RouletteThere 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.

Part two coming next.

Always Focus on Your Money

Regardless of the game you choose to play at the online casino, you want to make sure you keep your bankroll as a central focus.

The bankroll is the total amount of cash you are going to spend at the casino. When you first enter a land- based casino you likely are going to visit the cash cages. This is where most players head so they can withdraw the amount of money they need to wager. Here is where a lot of people get into trouble.

Let’s say you set your bankroll at $300. You go to the casino with every intention of taking that much out of the ATM machine but then something happens. You suddenly see a promotion that requires an additional $50 beyond your limit to wager on. You don’t want to switch out your games, so you add that “harmless” extra $50. Or, let’s say you go through your bankroll but “have a feeling” you might win with just “one more spin”. You go back to the cash cage and withdraw an additional $75. Is this likely? For millions of gamblers, it unfortunately is. They believe that I they take one more shot they are going to hit it big. How realistic is this?

The bottom line is that it could happen. There is a chance that you could go overboard with your wagers and still come out a winner, but it is highly unlikely. The odds are against you that you are going to win when you go to the casino. “The House Always Wins” is a truth that you always have to keep in mind.

You could get lucky and win a long shot, but you most likely won’t. This is why you should always set your bankroll and keep it firmly intact when you are wagering.

This is the number one thing you need to always remember when you gamble. Never go overboard. The odds are always against you that it will ever pay off to you. You should treat the bankroll as it was meant to be treated- set it firmly well before you ever get to the casino floor and then stick to it.

This is the only way you are going to truly have a great gaming session without regrets in the end.

And I would like to finish this topic, by adding that always play at a casino for entertainment purposes only, unless you are a professional poker player (but that’s another story, it will get cover some other time), and that way it doesn’t get out of control and you may keep coming back. Remember, “always focus on your money”. Good luck!
