Roulette Betting Strategies to Avoid

Published on 10 December 2012

Mos of the time, we are given advice to learn about roulette betting. However, not all of it seems to be powerful. There are varities of betting strategies that have been developed to be able to beat the casinos. But none of these seems to work.

Roulette versions are designed to provide a certain house edge throughout the game. Nobody can ever change the odds. It depends upon the version of roulette you are playing. When you are playing American Roulette, the house edge is 5.26% and with European Roulette, the house’s edge is 2.7%. But none of the roulette betting strategies will change this. No matter what combination of bets or how much wager you put, the house edge will still remain.

The most common strategy players are using is the Martingale strategy, in which the player continues to double their wager on an even money bet if they lose. They are trying to recoup the losses by winning an amount that is equivalent to their initial wager. Although, this mostly dont work because it is sometimes impossible to do after lossing. In the other hand, the player may run out of funds or they may hit the limitation of the table.

Another strategy is one developed by Andrez Martinez of the Los Angeles Times, where player divides their bankroll into 35 parts. One part is to use for wagering on a single number, if they win on the 10th spin, the bankroll is recovered and the other half are the excess. But always remember, this strategy cannot be rpoven succefull because there is no guarantee of winning on the 10th spin.
