Roulette Strategy: Minimize Edge of Casino

Many people try to sell you roulette systems that will guarantee you to win when playing roulette. These people are lying. There is no such system that will guarantee you that you will win when playing roulette. Sure, in the short term, these systems might work, but in the long term, the casino always have an edge.
This brings me to my next point. The casino always has an edge of 2.63% when you are playing European Roulette, no matter what bet you take. Should you be playing American Roulette, the casino always has an edge of 5.26%. The only difference between European and American Roulette is that the American Roulette wheel has an additional zero (00), which is responsible for this large increase in the edge of the house.

Because of this significant difference between the house edges of European and American Roulette, we highly recommend only playing on European Roulette tables to minimize the edge the casino has over you. Most online casinos now offer both versions, so there should be no reason to play American Roulette.

Playing the European Roulette tables is also the only thing you can do to reduce the edge of the casino. Some people also try to play by a “system” which tells them to double their bet everytime they lose, so they can make back the loses. While this strategy might work in the short term, in will not work in the long term. There are 2 reasons for that: First of all, the casinos all have a maximum limit for a bet, which means that once you reach a certain point with the amount you have to bet to double the previous bet, you won’t be allowed to do it anymore. The second reason that this “system” does not work is because the chances of something happening are always the same, no matter what happened before. If the last 10 spins all felt on a red number, the chances of this happening again are about 50% (slightly below because of the 0), but the chances of a black number coming are still exactly the same. Unlike in Blackjack, the past has no effect on the future in the game of Roulette.

Because that is the case, I recommend you don’t even try this “system”, as it might eventually become incredibly costly. It will work in the short term, but not in the long term. Trust me, I tried it (we all were young and stupid once; lol).

Therefore, when playing roulette, set yourself a amount you are willing to lose and stop when you hit this amount. If you are running well, increase your bets, when running bad and losing, decrease your bets, so you can enjoy your roulette experience for a longer period of time.
