Here at Lucky Nugget Casino we have many games that can keep you entertained and excited for hours. However, arguably the pick of the bunch is roulette. The thrill and anticipation of each spin of the wheel makes the game so appealing and enjoyable to play. You don’t know what’s going to happen and with a range of bets available there is the chance to win some serious money.
Here we will look at the top tips for all the roulette players out there, so make sure you use them next time you’re at the table!
Busting the myths
The first tip we have to give you is a simple one – don’t believe some of the nonsense you read when it comes to roulette! You know what we mean, and we will start with the ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ numbers.
Yep, there are many ideas surrounding these numbers. Hot ones are on a streak so could be due out again, while cold numbers have to come out some time, so why not the next spin?
Well, you shouldn’t need us to tell you, but we will anyway – it’s rubbish! Every spin is independent and completely random. There are no rules to roulette and every spin, every number from 0-36, has exactly the same chance of coming out.
Likewise, if you are on a ‘streak’ or see anyone else is on a streak and decide to follow them – don’t, it’s just coincidence. It may be hard not to get caught up in the moment when it comes to roulette as the excitement and relief of winning is fantastic, but remember the golden rule.
Each spin is random, and there are no patterns.
If you approach it in that frame of mind, then you will be fine. Of course, that doesn’t mean we’re telling you how to bet – far from it! If you want to follow the hot and cold theory then do so, we are just pointing out there is definitely no additional benefit to following that theory.
Be careful with the Martingale system
Another tip, another word of warning and once again we stress that roulette is random. The Martingale system is a fairly straightforward one; you double your stake each time you lose and eventually you will win because that’s how it works. Fine, we cannot argue with that fact. You will always win enough to cover your losses plus one unit.
However, there is reason to be cautious. Firstly, because you are unlikely to have a never-ending pot. If it continuously goes against you, how long can you afford to keep doubling your stake?
Secondly, does the overall win make it worthwhile? At the end of the day you could only be winning a small percentage of your stake and it certainly ruins the unpredictability and fun of roulette. There are better ways to try and win big that don’t zap the excitement.
Play European roulette, not American!
This may seem like an obvious one to the more experienced players out there, but if you are new to the scene and find the two choices open for you to play, make sure you pick the European version and the justification is simple.
That’s because in the American version there is a ‘00’ slot as well as a zero, meaning there are more numbers on the board and therefore less chance for you to win.
The house edge on an American wheel is twice that of the European wheel, so pick wisely!
Have a little a patience
For our next tip we have listened to the wise words of Take That. Have a little patience. It is an essential ingredient to becoming successful at the roulette table.
It is easy to record successive losses given the unpredictable nature of the game, and that is where you need to keep your cool, keep your head and not chase after your money with bigger bets. If you do and you start changing the way you were playing, it could end in disaster.
Have your stake in mind and keep to it, if you become reckless, things could get nasty very quickly with roulette, and making quick, angry rash decisions on a game of chance is not the smartest move as you would no doubt agree.
However, we know how roulette can play with your emotions, so make sure you keep them in check when you are next involved!
Practice makes perfect
This well-known saying is another that can help players along the way and it easy to do. Thankfully, with the internet, there are so many ways you can play online roulette for free and that gives you the chance to perfect everything you wanted to and become accustomed to how the game works.
Of course, if you are a new player we would say that doing this is imperative as it gives you an insight into how the game works, the speed of it and how to place your bets. Yet, for more experienced players it might be worth a go too as it gets you in the right frame of mind and sharpens your focus ahead of the game.
While it will not give you any certainties when the real game comes around, it will at least give you an idea of how to play and what you need to do. Take the time to practice – it could really pay off!
So there you have it, five key ways to help you at the roulette table, whether you are at the local casino or chancing your arm at Lucky Nugget Casino. The overall message is clear, remember it is random! You know that each spin is independent and to stay emotionally detached to the game as possible. It’s easy to become engrossed and easy to believe the theories that are banded about, but if you do it will only end up costing you in the future. So follow these simple steps to give yourself a chance of making your next visit to the roulette wheel profitable as well as exciting and enthralling! Good luck.
