Live Dealer Casino Games Everything is simple in the roulette: a game of chance, played with a ball, on a roulette wheel, in red or black colors, with 37 or 38 numbers, one of them reserved for the house, each one assigned a value. The croupier spins the wheel in one direction, shooting the ball in the opposite direction, in contrary to the direction of the wheel. The ball spins around the rim, until it reaches the numbered pocket, where it drops. If the ball drops on the zero (or double zero), the croupier quickly says “No more bets, no more actions”. And the game starts. The wheel spins in the opposite direction, the ball falls on a pocket with numbers corresponding to zero and the croupier says “Treat!” and collects the bets.
In the roulette, things are a bit more complicated and it is based on the fundamental principles of probability theory, the most known of all. In this theory, every situation of the wheel, has the same chances of the ball falling on one of the pockets. The only difference is that the numbers are not colored. In the cases of even or odd, black or red, high or low, nearly one or two numbers are more or less likely to be hit. This is determines, basically, a push or a pull on the wheel, because the probability of the ball falling on the same color or the same number decreases the more numbers are left.
Once the wheel starts to slow down, as it does with all large systems of probability theory, you can begin to see patterns more clearly. It is common to see a “push” after a spin, rather than a “pull” after a spin. Almost all live dealer roulette games, both on the internet and in the brick and mortar casinos, use what is called the “En Prison” rule. According to this rule, if a ball falls on a zero pocket after a spin, the player has options: he may abandon the bet or he may take the bet back, his stake if he wants to, but the casino has the right to keep the entire bet. This is the casino’s edge over the player and is a casino tactic to help it stay in business.
Live Dealer Casino Games However, according to one’s rights to take back or abandon bets, the casino still has the advantage. This is because it keeps the majority of the bets it has already made, only giving back a small percentage to the players. In this case, the player’s only advantage would be to hold back and hope for a better outcome. This, in theory, would still allow for the house advantage to be low, only just over 5% on this bet.
Live Dealer Casino Games However, there are a couple of ways to mathematically overcome the house edge. One way is to either bet on all pockets or bet a specific group of numbers. If you bet all pockets, you can obviously bet more than the base bookie bet, but you will also have to bet more numbers than if you were to bet a group of numbers. Obviously, if you bet on all pockets you could bet 36 different numbers, but it might be less effective because of the house edge.
Furthermore, there isn’t a sure bet that will work forever. The Martingale system, a simple strategy of raising the bet on every loss, will work for a while but after a while the bet will have to be raised again. After enough losses the bet will have to be raised again. People are well aware of this and the casinos, realizing that the Martingale system doesn’t always guarantee a profit, will remove the Martingale system from the casino. They will still make money, of course, but you will not be able to bet during a casino trip to Las Vegas, so it will be a bit of a hassle.
Another system is to look for a pattern to the bets you make. If, for example, you ufabet168 always bet on red you could easily lose on a black wheel, but there are not many other players doing this so you have a fair chance of winning. Betting on red in the short term is not advisable if you are betting on red only, but there are many other players doing it. If you see a lot of red bets, quit and come back later, when your luck has better improved.
If you do win, be sure to spot the pattern and bet on the opposite colour!
Various Systems and Strategies
Unfortunately, there are nofty strategies for playing roulette. The game is too inherently random and random events are just that certain. You can’t predict where the ball will go, or what the next number will be if you play the game in a certain way.
However, many people use systems. These systems can be as simple as a single number bet to win, or as complicated as an entire page of numbers.
