Roulette is a game based mostly on luck and some players may consider it not interactive enough. Yet there are many players for which roulette is their favourite game. Electronic roulette can be very entertaining and brings the right kind of excitement from the game. Roulette has many strategies which can be used but it is true that the result cannot be significantly affected.
There are various tricks and tips how to win at roulette. Several of the tips are listed here and you may try them out. However, always remember that casinos often have special rules that alter the advantage of the casino. The three most important rules are listed below.
First special rule which you should look out for is the "Surrender" option. This should not be confused with the same rule in blackjack. In roulette, this rule applies only to bets with payout ratio 1:1, that is odd/even, red/black and high/low. If the ball ends on 0 or 00, you will use only half of your bet which is better than losing everything. This significantly alters the casino advantage as it is precisely the 0 and 00 which contribute to the casino's advantage. Payout ratios for these bets are not so good but if you find a table with the "Surrender" rule, your probability will increase significantly.
0 and 00 are very important points. You should look for tables with just a single zero, the so-called European tables. You will find these not only in Europe but everywhere. European tables offer a much better casino advantage from the player's point of view. If you find an European table, you are decreasing the casino advantage from 5,26 % to 2,7 %. Always try to stick to this point (which is our second rule), thanks to this you will be successful and you can make more money.
Third rule which you should be careful about is aptly named "En Prison" ("in prison"). This rule can be applied in the situation when the ball stays on zero and it is valid only for bets with payout ratio of 1:1. In this situation, the player doesn't lose his bet immediately but instead the bet stays on the table and can it be said the the bet is "En Prison". The decision about its fate will be made in the next spin. If you win in the next spin, you get the bet back but without any other winnings. If you lose and zero (0) appears again, the bet still stays "En Prison".
If you can, never play American roulette. The wheel of the American roulette has an extra field called double zero (00) which doubles the casino's advantage. Also keep in mind special rules such as "Surrender" or "En prison" which favor the player. You can try all these strategies in the free and risk-free roulette version that is offered by almost all online casinos.
