I learned from an early stage that since most tables are paying out 36 to one if you hit a number dead on, you should probably bet at least more than 20 chips at a time. Even if you bet 30 and you hit a number, you still profit 6. But on the flip side, if you lose, you lose 30.

Also, if you are going to bet on a 50/50 bet where the minimum is usually 5 instead of 1 on the inside numbers, you should bet bigger than you would on the inside of the table. The chances of you winning are greater but they only pay 2 to 1 odds.

Also, I think betting on the 0 or 00 is a suckers bet and should be avoided by smart players.

As far as roulette goes. I think as a beginner, stick with the minimum bet. I personally don’t think there is a “strategy” to randomly picking numbers. It’s essentially like KENO or the lottery. I’m sure there can be betting strategies, but if you don’t pick the winning numbers, you just lose money on roulette. It’s fun as a relaxing game to sit and talk with friends with some betting splashed in, but other than that, it’s just a money pit in my opinion.

I’ve only played roulette once but my strategy was to play my family members birthdays. I know it sounds silly and of course I didn’t win anything but it was interesting to play. I went with a bunch of my friends and they were trying to tell me how to play but like you said it’s a game of chance.

It definitely is a game of chance but the more chips you have out there the better. I am not saying to double up on any particular number but put a good number of chips out there to increase your odds of winning.

When I do play roulette I usually will play the same numbers over and over. The one thing I can suggest is that you stand back and watch others play first and try to pick up on how they are playing the game. If there are people standing around you, strike up a conversation and ask them how to play.

I don’t know why you would stay away from the 0 and 00 because there is just as much chance of this of being a winning number as any other on the wheel.  I guess if you have never won on them it may make you feel this way, but your feelings don’t adjust the odds of the game.

I usually just bet on the all the numbers of the same colours. If I expect black to come, I just bet on almost all black numbers. Kinda 2:1 but I eliminate some numbers so I make a little bit more. BUt still, its a game of chance.

do you have a strategy for which numbers you skip betting on or is it just random?

When it comes to betting, I always stick to minimum bets, otherwise, all the numbers of the same colours. This is the safest bet for me so far. It’s a game of chance remember?

Hi guys, when it comes to betting, the first and foremost thing that comes in every individuals mind is “minimum betting”.
Do betting on the outside tables’.
Every time bet on the outside chances whether red or black, high or low, odd or even. Always make a habit of checking the previous rounds that will help you in making some prediction.

My tip would be to play on wheels with no zero at all. It isn’t very smart to play with 1 zero and 2 zeroes is just throwing money to the casino

Guys..  so many opinions… when you are betting, try to bett on winning numbers only. Less numbers you cover, more chances to make money you have. There are times when you have to cover more numbers, but its only if you are ” absolutely” shure that bett gonna pay off. Stay avay of cold numbers, these don’t pay as frequently as nessesary to make money. Lern about the game befor commiting to play. Its game for professionals, independently of the side of the table you are currently located. If not shure, don’t bett.
