Now you must be a bit more familiar with the roulette table, but let's see it live!
Description of betting in roulette, for each specific spot:
- We put on number 14 simply. We get 36 back on the 1 unit bet.
- We made a so called split bet on number 19 and 22. We get 17x of the chips if one of the numbers is the winner.
- This is a street bet (three line). We put the chips on the line between the dozen field and the number just near the field. The payout ratio is 11:1 if one of the 3 numbers in that line is the lucky winner.
- Corner bet is a harder one. We put on 4 numbers. Payout ration is 8:1 if one of the 4 numbers is the lucky winner.
- Double street (six line). 5:1
- Middle dozen. 3:1
- One of the rows. 3:1
- Even. 2:1
- Red. 2:1
- 1-18 "low" numbers. 2:1
The Martingale StrategyThis simple, yet effective betting strategy is used by most savvy gamblers and has been proven to work over the years. The idea behind this betting strategy is that you will always break even.
You start by placing a bet and based on what happens on this bet, will dictate how much to bet next. If you lose, you need to double the losing bet on the next spin. If you had bet $5 and lost, your next bet should be $10. You will continue this progression until you win. Once a winning bet is made, you go back to the original size bet you started with.
Double Street QuadThe goal of this strategy is to cover as many numbers of possible with as little money as possible. By using this, you will have nearly half of the numbers covered with very little money at risk.
To implement the Double Street Quad strategy, you will be betting a single number that is not covered on the double streets that you will betting on and place a bet of 1 chip. Next, pick 2 streets to place a wager of 2 chips on each street.
Lastly, choose a quad block of numbers that again, is not covered by the straight number bet and place one chip on this betting spot. You now have 6 chips in play and 17 of the 35 numbers covered in a game of single zero Roulette.
Five Quad StrategiesThis Roulette strategy is much like the Double Street except you are only betting on quads or corners. Pick 5 blocks of 4 numbers to place a one chip bet on. Then choose a straight number, preferably one not already covered by one of the 5 quad bets and place one more chip on this number.
This strategy uses the same amount of chips as the Quad Street one, but you are now covering 21 numbers instead of 17. The odds of winning using his strategy are a tad bit lower, but it does have bigger rewards since the quad bets pay out a higher percentage than the street bets used in the Double Street strategy.
All of these roulette strategies mentioned are designed to give you a better chance at winning. These strategies use a mathematical formula to ensure you should at least break even by doubling your losing bets to recoup the previous one. With a little luck, using any of these strategies should show a nice profit in the long run!
