The importance of having a system or methodology in place when using an online casino to play roulette is absolutely crucial, in order to maximise profits and/or minimise losses, it is important to identify and deal with the factors that may affect your system.
In order to successfully operate a system or methodology it is important to bet only on selections that provide a known and proven edge. Most systems or techniques can be applied to either black or red, although the Martingale system can also be applied to even odd (red and black) numbers in a single zero roulette wheel, providing a larger betting edge for the user. However most systems will only work if the table is manufactured by an unbeatable household brand such as Bola88, Microgaming or Betfair. Both of the above brands are household brand names and you would hope that if you are playing on a European table that the house edge is slightly lower, resulting in an overall better edge for the user.
Roulette is a game of probability involving numbers, the spin of the roulette wheel and the outcome of events that occur therein. The probability of the next spin being a red or black number is scratched out on the roulette wheel in front of the player. If you are able to spot this probability there is a real chance of being able to predict the next spin or even the total series of numbers that will appear on the roulette wheel. Be able to predict the sequence and you will be on your way to cleaning out a casino. In order to execute the plan effectively you will have to get very good at evaluating the numbers that will repeat. This may take you a long time to acquire, but in the end the knowledge will pay off.
Now that you have a good understanding of probability and the wheel you can begin to execute the plan. You are going to bet on a smaller area of the table, either the whole table or a selection of numbers. You are looking to bet on the pockets that you believe the ball will land in. You want to limit your betting to pockets that provide a 1 in 36 chance of winning the spin. You also want to avoid pockets that will produce a number higher than your bet. This is very effective because the ball is 24 per cent sure to land on a higher number than your pocket. The next you need to place is a pass line bet on the same layout. This bet will follow the same gravity rules as your wheel bet. All you are doing is guaranteeing that if the ball lands on a higher number than your pass line bet you will win. If the ball lands on a lower number than your pass line bet you will win. This is essentially a game of chance and your best bet is to place a bet on the pass line rather than the numbers. Place several of these bets on different sections of the table and the bets will come out to be very hefty.
You can also change your bet to a section and then a column. By doing this you will be able to cover a large part of the table. Once you have covered a section you can move on to another section. Another thing to consider here would be to leave one of your bets on the table. Of course you are not obligated to do so, but if you take your bets off the table, you are less likely to have a problem and your losses will be minimal. This is the optimal situation because you are covering a large part of the board, but not committing your chips to the centre of the board where your odds are less than 50/50.
So now you are looking to move your play out of the green zone and increase your odds. You can increase your odds of winning by getting a better read on the board, or you can increase your chances of winning by getting a read on the player. Either way you are looking to increase your chances of winning a bet.
