Three Tips For New Online Roulette Players

October 28, 2017


If you have been inside a land casino you would have been wowed by the imposing roulette table. Or you may have seen the hustle bustle around the roulette tables in movies. Australian online casinos now give you the opportunity of playing roulette from the comfort of your home. If you are a new player you should keep the following three concepts about online roulette in mind.

It is important to be aware that online roulette is a game of luck and there is no skill involved with which you can change the outcome of the wager. Every spin of the roulette wheel is independent of the outcomes in previous spins. What has happened earlier is history, forget about it. You cannot predict or even narrow down the outcome of the next spin. Some online roulette games include charts of hot and cold numbers. These are for show only. Do not make bets based on them. You will find many strategies on various online sites that guarantee success in online roulette. The most popular is the Martingale doubling strategy. In practice it has serious drawbacks.

Australian online casinos offer a number of roulette variants and you should be aware of the average returns they offer. American Roulette offers an average return of less than 95% and should never be played. The American Roulette wheel has both 0 and 00. When either of these numbers is called all regular bets lose. European Roulette is considerably better because it offers an average return of over 97%. European Roulette has only 0. Therefore regular bets lose only when one number is called, instead of two. French Roulette is played with the same wheel as European Roulette, but goes one step ahead. If 0 is called then half of all even money bets are returned to the player. For even money bets only the average return goes over 98.5%.

There are many different bets in online roulette covering from one number to 18 numbers. Each of these bets has the same average return in American Roulette and European Roulette. A combination of bets will also have the same average return. A bet on one number pays 35 to 1, but is less likely to succeed. A bet on 18 numbers pays only 1 to1, but is more likely to succeed. You have to assess the king of winnings that you are targeting and select your bets accordingly.
