Most of us that play roulette are not trying to make a living from it and play professionally (but there are a few people that do play professionally and make a killing). We are trying to have fun and maybe make a few dollars while doing it. So, what are some roulette tips and tricks to win?
There are many articles online with Roulette Tips and Tricks but many of these are advertisements for online gambling casinos that are trying to pull people into the casino to make money. But, they are trying to make money for themselves, not help you at all. That is not the point of this article. This is to educate and inform.
How to Play Roulette
There are two main types of roulette: American and European. This is how to play American Roulette.
First of all, there are 38 numbered divisions in Roulette numbered one through thirty six and a zero slot and double zero slot. One through thirty six are alternating in black and red color while the zeros are colored green. (European Roulette has one zero space, not two.)
A wheel is spun and a small ball is thrown onto the wheel as it spins. The point of roulette is to accurately predict where the ball will land as the wheel stops spinning. If you guess correctly then you win that round.
To buy in at a table, you exchange cash or chips with the dealer before that round is started. Each player gets different colored chips to prevent confusion amongst the players.
You can bet on one single number or a combination of numbers, bets are categorized as “inside” or “outside” bets.
There are a few roulette tips and tricks to win, especially for beginners that are not looking to make a killing at the tables.

Finding roulette strategies that work will help you to keep your play money in your pocket so you can play longer.
#1: Understand that some systems are rigged against you:
If you go in with the understanding that casinos are in business to make money then you will be better off in the long run. Online casinos especially are not leaving roulette to chance. There is a computer that chooses the number and there is an algorithm that determines how many times you are allowed to win.
#2: Go in with a predetermined amount of money:
Decide how much money you are willing to lose if need be and only bring that amount with you.
#3: Learn the odds of the game:
Learn the odds of winning and losing before playing because this can help you to choose your numbers. There are many guides online for how to learn odds. Believe it or not, statistics can play a big factor in gambling and determining who will win and who won’t. I am always amazed by how the math geniuses can be so great at gambling. (No, we are not talking about counting cards!)
#4: Inform yourself on how to place different bets and when:
There are inside and outside bets with different variations of both. Depending on how much risk you are willing to take when betting determines which type of bet you will want to place.
#5: Look at what numbers have won and lost previously:
We went to a casino once where the wheel was slightly tilted (shady casino, we know) so no matter how many times you spun the wheel you just weren’t going to land on certain numbers. Watch a few rounds before betting to see if there are certain numbers that win or lose more than others.
#6: Be weary of doubling up your bets:
If you go in with a certain amount of cash to place on bets, you will burn through your money faster if you double up bets so consider this before placing your bets.
When learning to play, you should learn basic roulette table rules, like these:
- Be courteous of other gamblers.
- Place your bet before the dealer calls out “no more bets.”
- Don’t make others wait on you to pick your number.
