Hello guys, I am new to roulette but I love this game from the very beginning. I started reading how to improve my game and came across articles like this one here http://mycasinostrategy.com/roulette+odds+and+probabilities/1/MlW-gRWfIpSPM9O3I1KzcNWrcdOjMhOfMhKvYZe7gRKjU5OLU9OHUlKLgdavIZ which state that the chance to hit BLACK/RED is 46.37% while others state it is 48.6%... how come, why is it different? Shouldn’t it be 50% (all numbers are half red and half black)? What am I missing?

The difference is due to the number of zeroes on the wheel.  Some on-line casinos offer a no-zero wheel, which makes the even money outside bets 50-50 propositions (i.e. there is no inherent house advantage).  On a European (one zero) wheel there are 18 ways to win but 19 ways to lose, so the chance of winning is 48.6%.  On an American (double zero) wheel there are 18 ways to win but 20 ways to lose, so the chance of winning is 46.37%.

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. For New Zealanders, CasinoKiwi recommends Jackpot city casino as the most popular choice for new Zealanders playing roulette online.
