Online Roulette: how to play, strategies and rules


Everything you need to know about roulette

Roulette is another popular online game that can be played both in traditional casinos and online casinos. You need to know how to play it though if you want to have fun playing the game and not to lose all the money. This is what we will talk about in our article.

Basic rules of roulette and their importance

Roulette is a very simple game. The rules of the game can be easily found anywhere and they are not difficult to understand. Fortunately, you do not need to spend years studying the rules like poker. In roulette, all you need to do is to bet and to wait for the result. A roulette table is a playing layout with numbered cells (usually from 0 to 36) and a ball. However, the number of cells may vary depending on the variation of the game. For example, the American version also has cell 00. After a player makes their bets, the wheel spins and the dealer puts the ball in. After a while, the ball stops in a cell which is considered the winning one.

There are different types of bets. Here are most common ones:

Direct bets

A bet on the specific number

Bet on two rows

On lines between two layout rows that are going to play.

Bets on two numbers

On the line that divides two numbers on the layout for roulette bets.

Low or High

Bet on whether the winning number will be low (1-18) or high (19-36)

A bet on a row

On outer line of a row

A bet on a column

On one of three columns with  “2 to 1” title on the bottom of roulette gaming layout

A bet on three numbers (combined bet)

On 0 andor 00 as well as on 1-2 numbers of the first row (1,2,3);

Bets on dozens

On the first, second or third dozens («1st 12», «2nd 12» or «3rd 12») 1-12, 13-24, 25-36;

Corner bet (carre)

On crossing of lines between a square of 4 numbers;

Odd or Even

Bet on whether the winning number will be ODD or Even

A bet on three numbers (combined)

On 0 andor on 00 as well as on 1-2 numbers of the first row (1,2,3); Bets on black or red

Besides that, every online casino can offer additional types of bets. The layout for these bets is usually separate.

Strategies for playing online roulette

There are many different strategies that “guarantee” you desired winnings. We do not believe in them and ask you not to believe. We believe that strategies are just an interesting way to play. Of course, a player can win with the help of any strategy, but the reason is luck, not a strategy. Strategies do not guarantee winnings in the long run, although sometimes they can bring good results. Nevertheless, there are fraud strategies like Martingale, which are beneficial only to casinos. These strategies are often offered by casinos and are presented like a sure way to win. But not take a step back and think. Why would a casino put itself in a situation where it loses?

Strategies are just a marketing move, just like no deposit bonuses. They confuse and overwhelm your head with unnecessary information and do not bring real benefits. And here is our take on this: learn the rules of roulette and do not waste time on strategies. The result of a game is completely unpredictable and impossible to impact. We will discuss this later too.

How to improve your chances of winning?

This is probably the most popular question. And the answer is there is no way to improve your chances of winning. As we have already said it is impossible to make any impact on the result. The only thing you can do is to change volatility, but it depends on the bet type. Almost all types of bets have the same payout percentage, but there are also bets with very poor payout percentage. You can find this bet in American roulette. A bet on five numbers. If you want to play this type of roulette game with real money, we don’t recommend making such a bet.

There is another way to increase your chances of winning and it is constant practice. But if you decide to practice with real money, you can end up with empty wallet. Therefore, we recommend playing free online roulettes to understand the principle of the game and learn the rules. And the last but very important thing, play only in trusted and licensed casinos.

Can online casinos fraud me?

Of course they can. But only those which operate illegally. Therefore, before visiting and playing in an online casino with real money, make sure that it works legally. Read reviews of players on different forums. Remember that gambling is always a risk, and its result does not depend on anyone or on anything. Play for fun, and not with real money.
