Roulette is a game that can be a bit intimidating the first time you lay your eyes on the betting table. Along with its notorious history as a house favorite (for its high casino advantage), roulette has nevertheless remained popular due to the high payouts and exciting buildup. Aces Up offers state-of-the-art American roulette tables that would be perfect entertainment for your next event. So, to prepare for the excitement here’s how to bet wisely and achieve the most success at the roulette table.
How to Challenge the House
Roulette is difficult if only because individual bets have a 1 in 37 chance of success, but only pays out 35 to 1. This gives the house a natural 5.26% advantage against all bets. One of the best ways to increase your chances of success at roulette is to “stick to the outside”, meaning the bets like red/black, high/low, and odd/even. While the returns aren’t nearly as high, the chances are closer to 50% than not. A combination of two outside bets like red/odd numbers can double your success on some numbers and cover more bases. The house edge on 00-0-1-2-3 (first five) is the worst, so avoid it at all costs.
The Martingale Strategy
One way to bet on red/black or even/odds is following what’s called the Martingale strategy. Let’s say you bet $5 on red and it lands on black. Next round, bet $10 on red to win back your money and see a profit. If it lands again on black, bet $20 on red. It will inevitably land on red, and you’ll see a profit. This does require enough that you can double up multiple times, however, and can be risky.
Hedge Your Bets on the Third Column
One thing you might notice about the table is that the red and black numbers aren’t spaced evenly across the columns. You can take advantage of the red-rich third column in particular by betting 2:1 third column and then double your bet on 1:1 black to give yourself a solid chance of making gains. On red numbers in the third column you get your money back, and on a black number in the third column, you gain.
