Many players have tried for years to find the right path to beating roulette. Unfortunately, for many that path becomes blocked by their own superstition and lack of discipline. In order to become a smart player, one’s emotions need to be removed from the equation.
Typical roulette betting strategy for most is to pick a “lucky number” or sentimental favorite like mom’s birthday. These are nice thoughts, but lousy play strategy. Smart roulette consists of two components both of which are very important.
The first component is the actual play strategy. Playing strategy relates to which wagers you select to employ before any given spin of the roulette wheel. There are many possible wagers available.
A player can bet on the number being red or black or whether it be odd or even. Both of these wagers pay even money. Other bets pay two to one. This include dozen bets. Examples of these are betting vertical columns or chunks of a third of the non green numbers.
The second facet of a comprehensive roulette strategy is money management theory. Most gamblers do one of two things, neither of which is correct. The first possible mistake is to wager the same amount on each spin.
Betting the same amount disallows taking full advantage of the good runs. A good money management strategy maximizes wins when times are good. The second possible mistake is to vary bets wildly based upon gut emotions. Most usually this ends with doubling up to catch up against losses.
An effective money management regime protects your bankroll during bad runs while maximizing the take during the great run that happens at least once each session. The money management and play strategy components need to coincide to produce a coherent overall system.
