I was in situation where I maxed out my column bet while having money placed on other rows as well. To my dismay, the machine capped me at $250 since it was apparently a $1,500 machine. Who would have thought they would have divided up the $1,500 for the max bet which allowed you to only put $250 on the column. That to me is a classic bait and switch. Now granted this was on a machine and not at a casino, do the same rules apply in live play? EXAMPLE 6,000 max bet table can you only place $1,000 per row or $6,000 in one row? If so, I need to tweak my strategy or have a partnet involved to be able to increase the max. BTW, would the later be ok to do anyway? Thank you for looking into this.

You are correct in this. Both in B&M and on-line casino’s the table max is the max of your bets combined. And in many cases there is alower max bet per type of bet. 
If the max bet is say 1000 than possibly the max bet on a single number may only be 100 or even less.

In spite of what people say that Martingale will alwyas ruin you the casino’s are also afraid that you can progress so far that your chances of winning greatly increase that is why they limit the max per type of bet as well as the max in total .

In a B&M casino you can in principle go on betting when you have one or more partners as the table max is the max per person.

I appreciate your insight. Could you please clarify. My question was not referring to 1:1 bets or utilizing a martingale strategy. I would be playing the 2:1 and therefore playing a lengthy progression based on the payout factor. My initial bet would be say $10 and my max would be $550 (on any given row/column) AND it is a $1,500 table. Is it possible to place a bet on a row for the amount of $550 or is the table max for a 2:1 bet at $250 (based on your comment about the max bet on the inside). This critical to my strategy because if I max out too quickly I won’t be able to play out the full progression and lose (given I hit before my own progression ends).

It is difficult to give a general answer as I have seen different max strategies at differentent casinos.
Most common is that the max per dozen or column is 60-70% of the table max allowed ( but i have seen casino’s where the max per dozen is even lower than that!!!

So if your unit is 10 and the max is 1500 you can progress as follows
1 - 10
2-10
3-30
4-40
5-60
6-90
7-140
8-210
9-310
10-470
11-700
12-1050
13-1580 (this is above the max of 1500 so surely not possible.  But as I mentioned often the limit per dozen is only 2/3 of the max (so with 1500 max this woudl be 1000 for the dozen and then max progression would be only bet 11. Trust me when I tell you that is by far INSUFFICIENT to even have the slighest chance to survive. This will kill you BR in less than 30 minutes play….

Online roulette is also very popular in Australia with many of the internet casino brands directly targeting Australians, resulting in a huge choice of roulette sites available to Australians. CasinoReef recommends Ruby Fortune casino as one of the top online roulette casinos available in AUD.
