# Roulette

Roulette is one of the most basic and the most popular casino games. It is known to literally anyone - even people who have never had with web gambling. What is roulette and basic rules of games are known almost to anyone - often presented in films, books or computer games.

Roulette loves to play practically everyone. We can prefer slots or poker and focus your attention, but sooner or later, even in order to breathe, we will return to Roulette for a moment. The game (both in the European and American version) is simply extremely addictive and exciting - largely due to its simple structure.

The fact that the roulette game is really trivial, but does not mean that there are no strategies or the possibility of increasing our skills. Experience as much as plays the big role here - despite theoretically easy game, we can develop your skills on many planes.

## Roulette history - where did it come from?

Roulette reaches the times of ancient Greece, although the modern form was first applied in France by French Mathematics Blaise Pascal. Pascal his passion scientific focused on the probability account and in 1645 created a machine that was the prototype of the currently known form of roulette.

Roulette was really popular in France. Initially, only an arystocracy played into it, although over time the game began to be popular also among the townspeople and spread to other countries. There were even special meeting places (in a sense the equivalent of today's casinos), where people met to play roulette. It was also temporarily forbidden.

In 1842, however, everything took a new shape when the brothers Louis and Francis Blanc founded the world's first casino in Monaco. They also gently modified the original figure of this game, adding 0 to Roulette, which was aimed at increasing the advantage of the casino.

However, this was not the end of modification. Roulette spread not only to other European countries, but also came from the ocean to the United States. There, in the first casinos stated in Las Vegas, one more change was introduced - another zero was added to the circle, which further increases the advantage of the casino. Such a form is valid in American casinos to this day.

## European roulette and American

As we learned from the history of Roulette - there are two versions of this extremely popular game. The first version that saw the daylight is European roulette and this is based on a variety called US. There is a fundamental difference between them.

First of all, the first thing we need to remember is to always choose the European version - at least if we want to win. Why is it like that? Because the advantage of the casino in the European version is much smaller than in the case of the American version. In practice, this means that players have a statistically much better chance of winning - and in the long term it does this really a huge difference!

Where does it result from? In the American version we play with zero and a double zero on the wheel. However, in the case of a European version, we have only one zero. This, it seems that a small difference, completely changing statistical chances of players to win. In the case of an American roulette, the HOUSE EDGE) is at 5.26%, while in the case of a European version it is only 2.70%.

In addition to American and European roulette (two main types), French roulette also stands out. It is very similar to the European variant, although there are several very minor differences.

• Principle "Le Partage", which says that the player can lose only half of the bet, if after spinning the roulette, the zero range will hit.

• All compartments are red.

• All markings on the table are in French.

## Roulette - How does it look like?

The roulette game is very simple - to play well, we do not have to read anything earlier, with nothing to learn if you learn anything. We enter the casino (or open our favorite online casino) and start the gameplay. The rules are very simple.

The main element of Roulette is a circle - the game is on it. It differs depending on the version of Roulette in which we play (American or European). In the case of European, it has 37 compartments and American - 38 compartments. As we expect - the difference results here from an additional interval "00", which occurs in the American version.

The compartments are red and black - half such and half. If we look at the roulette wheel well, we will notice that the arrangement of numbers is also not accidental. Numbers on red fields are arranged opposite numbers on black fields.

In addition to the wheel, the remaining main elements of roulette are: table, ball and chips. If we are in a real casino - during the game also accompanies the dealer.

So how is the game? As a player, our goal is to predict where after turning the roulette will be a ball. We bet on the chips, putting them on specially designated for this field.

However, our predictors have several opportunities. We can set the following options:

• Specific number

• Color of the compartment

• Number height (high, low)

• Parity numbers (even or odd)

We must remember that this is a game "Single Player" - that is, we play with a casino, not against other players. Casino, of course, has a statistical advantage, so the game is not and will never be equal. However, if we want to limit your chances of a loser, we should always choose the European Roulette version.

## What are the types of roulette plants?

In Rulette, we can distinguish two main types of plants: external plants and internal plants. What is going on? We're already explaining!

External plants are all bets deposited beyond the grid. Internal plants, in turn, are all bets that have been folded on a grid for the game, including plants including lines and their intersection.

Previously, only the possibilities that we can bet. Each of these "possibilities", however, generates a number of various types of options from which we can make a choice. Below are all types of plants available in roulette with a division into main and internal plants.

**External plants:**

• **Zakład RED / BLACK** - We bet here a red or black compartment.

• **Low / High Department** - We bet on low or high numbers. Low houses from 1 to 18 and high from 19 to 36.

•** Department of Odd / Even** - a bet including even and odd numbers

• **A plant type column** - We bet on the entire column - all you need to do is draw any number belonging to the selected column.

• **DODEN BAG** - Special type of plant covering until twelve numbers. Three combinations are available here: numbers 1-12, 13-24 and 25 - 36.

Interior plants are already much more unusual and the number of possible combinations are as follows:

• **Base Base** - a bet covering three numbers and one zero (or two in the case of an American version)

• **Straight Up bet** - A plant covering a single number

• **A split plant** - A plant covering two numbers

• **Corner bet** - A plant covering four numbers

• **Street bet** - a bet covering three numbers next to each other

• **A plant type column** - a plant covering the entire column consisting of twelve numbers

• **DODEN BAG** - A plant covering twelve numbers

• **LINE PARK** - A plant covering two STREET plants

As we know - the European version of roulette is a much more just version from this American. Below are a list of several selected types of betting along with a percentage chance to win for both versions of Roulette: European and American.

**External plants - a percentage chance of winning depending on the type of establishment**

The name of the plant | European version | American version |

Zakład RED / BLACK | 48,65% | 47,37% |

Department of Odd / Even | 48,65% | 47,37% |

Low / High Department | 48,65% | 47,37% |

DODEN BAG | 32,43% | 31,58% |

A plant type column | 32,43% | 31,58% |

**Interior plants - a percentage chance of winning depending on the type of establishment**

The name of the plant | European version | American version |

Corner bet | 8,11% | 7,89% |

Street bet | 48,65% | 47,37% |

A split plant | 5,41% | 5,26% |

Straight bet | 2,70% | 2,63% |

As we see - the difference in the percentage opportunity to win between both versions is not particularly large, while the advantage of the casino in the American version is almost twice.

However, we must remember that we do not play on roulette for a moment. We often spend a lot of hours over this game and really play a lot of rounds. In the long term, every percentage or even half a percent can do a difference!

## How to play roulette?

Although roulette in itself is a really simple game, as we probably noticed, we can distinguish a number of different strategies and systems here. There are quite a lot of factors that we can use during the game. Above all, however, we should start with considering your financial position - that is, for how much we really want to play.

If we plan to choose a low maximum rate, we will definitely enjoy a longer longer. The downside, however, is that we do not win much, we also win. However, if we are to play for larger rates - the risk of losing all funds intended for the game is much larger. Regardless of the chosen strategy - we must reject the mentality that urges us to make up for any price.

If we are new in the world of roulette, a better choice will focus on external plants (black / red, even / odd etc.). These are simpler strategies in which winnings are definitely more often - of course, they are also much smaller. Internal plants, in turn, are more complicated and the chance of winning is much smaller here.

On the Internet we find a lot of ready-made systems and tactics that we should follow the guidelines. However, we must notice - there is no better or worse strategy. There are only strategies that are not the best choice for us due to insufficient experience or too small budget. There is no one way to win into roulette and will never be. The game was designed to finally the casino always win a small advantage. This does not mean, however, that we can not try to "push" happiness in our side by understanding the principles on which roulette is based.

Roulette game systems is quite a lot and it is best to familiarize yourself with each of them. They differ primarily depending on the percentage chance of winning and losing. For example, in the case of Fibonacci strategy, we have a great chance to win a lot of winning and at the same time a big chance for a loser. In turn, the second equally popular strategy, Martingale, is characterized by a small chance for a high win and simultaneously relatively safe.

## What are Roulette game systems?

### System Martingale

This is one of the simplest and simultaneously used roulette strategies. What is this? We undermine your lost betting until we finally win. However, this approach is very limited because we must have a really high budget to continue this strategy. Continuous doubling of rates is impossible due to the limits imposed by the casino, because even from small amounts of AUD 2 or AUD 4, we will be forced to play for greater money very quickly. Nevertheless, this is a very simple and effective strategy that we must try.

### Inverted Martingale

As the name suggests - this is the system identical to the one described above. With one small difference - here we double your rate after each win, and after a loser, we stop betting. This strategy is also known as Anti-Martingale and is a strategy burdened with considerable risk. Both the probability of a loser and a large win is large here.

### Fibonacci string

One of the most popular roulette strategies based on known mathematical solutions. This strategy seems to be much more complicated - although they are only appearances, because as soon as we get what is going on, it is really easy to do.

This is a progressive system in which the key is the sequence of numbers: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, etc. As we see - all these numbers are the sum of the two previous numbers:

• To obtain a number 2, we bet 2 zlotys (1 + 1)

• To obtain a number 13, we bet 13 AUD (5 + 18)

• To obtain a number of 89, we bet 89 AUD (34 + 55)

How to apply this in practice? Very simply - if we lose, we are constantly going forward and we focus on the sum of two consecutive numbers from the sequence. However, if we win, we have to go back two numbers from the back sequence.

The purpose of this strategy is to win until we undo the first "one" in the sequence. If at the very start, we will be backward to the first number one - we start all over again. And so around - we come to the number 89, we win and we go back to the number 34. If we win again, we bet on only 13 zlotys (number 13). In turn, when we lose, we succumb to the rate of your next plant according to the sequence.

However, we must remember that this system starts not from the first number one, and from the second one. So - when we start a series of fibonacci string, we start from the second one in the sequence. We lose the first bet for AUD 1, so the next value will be 2 zlotys, and then on another loss 3 AUD, etc.

Fibonacci string is a good strategy, although it does not take into account the probability account. In addition - as all other progressive strategies, it is limited by limits imposed by the casino. Their height differs depending on the casino to the casino, but we can be sure that we will not be able to put these larger sum from the sequence when we can reach them.

### Reversed Fibonacci string

Of course, such a popular system as the Fibonacci string must also have its alternative. Unlike a traditional version, where a chance to win a large win is large - here is the opposite and we have a small chance of winning large sums.

In the reversed fibonacci string, we use the same number sequence, although we move forward in the case of winnings. So when we win, for example, a value of AUD 2, the next one focuses for AUD 3. If we win again, it is already 5 zlotys, AUD 8, AUD 13, etc.

However, if we lose - we go back two numbers in sequence. When we were able to reach the amount, e.g. 55 AUD and unfortunately, but we lost - we go back to the number 21. In the same time as in the case of a traditional fibonacci string, with the fact that after a lost we go forward and increasing the next rate.

### System D’Alembert’a

The D'Alembert system is a very simple and very effective strategy. The principles we have to follow here are really simple, although this is not an ideal system for beginner players, because the chance to lose is quite large here.

The strategy came from French mathematics Jean-Baptiste Le Rond D'Alembert. According to this strategy, we start the gameplay from the number even at the discretion and we are holding a fixed rate all the time we win. So if we start from the plant equal to, for example, 10 zlotys, while we win all the time we play for AUD 10. However, if we lose, we must increase your rate for the equivalent of the amount from which we started the game. On one loss from AUD 10, we will do AUD 20, then on another defeat it will be AUD 30, then AUD 40 and so on and on.

However, if we lose after previous winnings - "We will back up" back to the equivalent of the amount set at the very beginning. Let's assume that our passa led us from AUD 10 to the plant equal to AUD 40. If at this point we lose, we go back one unit (fixed at the beginning of AUD 10) and the value of the next plant is already AUD 30. If we come to the starting point (AUD 10) again, we do not interrupt the game, we only continue for AUD 10 until we win.

### Reversed d'Alembert

The popular D'Alembert strategy also has its alternative version that is based on "50/50" plants, such as bets on even and odd numbers, high and low numbers or red or black.

The system is based on very simple principles - if we win, we double the previously established rate. For example, if we start from AUD 10, in the case of winning the value of the next plant will amount to AUD 20. If we win again - it will be AUD 40, then AUD 80 and so on.

However, if we lose - we will go equally with half the last value of us. If, for example, we managed to run by up to AUD 160 from AUD 10, when we lose, we go back to AUD 80 - we continue the gameplay by placing a bet worth AUD 80. If we lose again, it will be AUD 40 and so on.

### System Labouchere’a

The Labouchere strategy is another very popular solution among Roulette players. However, it is more complicated from the strategies described above and requires a slightly greater involvement. But without worry - we will understand everything very quickly.

Here, similar to the reversed D'Alembert system, we focus on external plants with a 50% chance to obtain one of the two results. We set the starting amount on which the further part of the strategy will be based. Let's assume that the amount determined by us is AUD 10.

Now we have to divide the amount we chosen into five parts - at discretion. It may be, for example, 4, 1, 1, 1, 3 or 2, 2, 2, 1, 3. Suppose that our five parts are: 2, 2, 2, 1 and 3 and we bet on even and odd numbers. We start with the even numbers to which we focus the sum of the first and last number from the sequence - that is, in this case it is AUD 2 + AUD 3 = AUD 5.

If we can win, we throw out these two external numbers from the sequence and remain such options as: 2, 2, 1. We choose numbers at the beginning and end of the sequence and we focus 3 zlotys (AUD 2 + AUD 1) for odd numbers. If we can win again, only one number will remain in the sequence - AUD 2. We put a two to the selected external plant and this way we finish the Labouchere cycle.

### Odwrócony system Labouchere’a

The alternative version of the Labouchere system, which is based on the same terms. Suppose that our sequence is identical to the one mentioned above. So: 2, 2, 2, 1 and 3 at a fixed rate of AUD 10.

As in the traditional version, the first plant focus on the amount of the first and last number of sequences, i.e. AUD 5 (AUD 2 + AUD 3) in this case). If we can win, we enlarge our sequence for the height of the plant. So we get a sequence 2, 2, 2, 1, 3 and 5.

However, if we have not been able to win - identically as in the usual Labouchere strategy, we reduce our sequence about the numbers we chose to submit the first plant. In this case, the sequence that remains us after the loser is: 2, 2, 1.

We roll the gameplay until all numbers from the sequence are getting rid of. This is a strategy in which the chances for a loser are relatively low and at the same time chances of gaining a lot of winning are also small. Similarly, as in the case of many other roulette game systems, the reversed Labouchere is best suited to minimizing losses.

### System password

Another very well-known strategy that is very often used when playing roulette. It also buys simple external plants and requires us to determine the starting rate.

Let's assume that we start 20 zlotys from the rate. If we win - we undermine your stake at the next plant and play for AUD 40. If, however, another plant will turn out to be lost - we return to a predetermined amount, or AUD 20.

It should be noted here that in the Parola system, the lost automatically back to the starting point - regardless of which amount we have come. If we won twice in a row and the third plant, we are playing for AUD 80 - lost back to the starting rate, or AUD 20.

Such progression in the Paroli system is strongly limited, because when we can win three times in a row, we are forced to continue the game from the starting rate (this is part of the strategy). So even if we play our third bet for 80 AUD and we will win, we will again focus again for AUD 20. Over and over again.

### Bots - strategy for lazy

One of the most-used strategic players today are also bots. Yes - many people use today to play with roulette from automated computer programs that use special roulette algorithms to predict the result and make us an ideal strategy.

It can not be said that this is a particularly bad solution. If you do not want to combine yourself with the choice of the right strategy and we want to maximize your chances of winning, we can use them most. However, we must remember that they do not guarantee us wins or reduce the advantage of the casino. Finally - the casino will win, because these are the top-set principles of this game.
