Roulette is the one of the most popular gambling games. It can be played with no skill and you can find a roulette table almost in all casinos in the world, online or live.
Roulette is a pure game of luck, but if you learn these roulette secrets, you can significantly increase your chances of winning.
Above all, it’s important to remember that all gambling games are just that: games. The casino wants to cash in (literally!) on your desire to win. Therefore, they make it very hard for you to a) realize how much you are losing and b) stop playing.
These tips will help you decrease your losses and maximize your fun.
Know When to Fold ‘Em
If you are having a bad day, stop. You can go back and try your luck again another day. If you lose some of your money today, you’ll still have enough for another round tomorrow. But if you lose all your money today, you will have no money for tomorrow.
Keep in mind that you are in the casino to enjoy yourself, to be entertained. Roulette isn’t a job, it’s a game. If you’re starting to get frustrated with the way your luck is turning, it’s okay to switch to another game or even stop for a while.
Read the Fine Print
If playing online, read the rules and terms and conditions of the website carefully. You don’t want to be so eager to sign up that you realized you signed all your rights away.
Before you open a real money account in an online casino, make sure that it’s not scam. Check that the site is authentic and read reviews online to see what other people have to say about it.
Set Time Boundaries
Always allocate a certain time limit to play per day…and stick to it. It’s very important to set this ahead of time (and commit to it!) so you don’t find yourself saying, “Just ONE more game!” when you’ve already been playing for 6 hours.
Set Financial Boundaries
As with any casino game, a general rule is to gamble only the money that you can afford to lose. Never use the money allotted for paying other bills such as rental, utility bills, etc. You’ll need professional help if you do gamble this way.
Learn the Rules
Practice makes perfect. Before playing for real money, take the time to acquaint yourself with the game first. A casino night event where the guests play just for fun is a good chance to get the real “casino night” feel without having to risk any actual money.
Place Small Bets
Don’t gamble all your money away in just one spin. If you lose it all in one roll, you’re done.
There’s a reason that most casinos offer free drinks while you’re gambling. Alcohol lowers your inhibitions (that voice in your head that says, “You probably shouldn’t do that”) and impairs your judgment. Stay away from alcoholic beverages so you can keep a clear head when playing.
Strategize Your Bets
Use “reverse Martingale” as a betting strategy. It’ll double your bet when you win.
Gambling—whether—roulette or craps, is a type of entertainment. You should be having fun, but you should also be in control. If you feel that you are becoming a compulsive gambler, stop the game and stay away from all kinds of casino games! It’s not worth the potential damage to your family life, finances, or peace of mind.
