Roulette Tips for Beginners
By Håkan Dahlström

A lot of people who don't know the game of roulette will sometimes see if they can have some success on a certain favourite number, or try and go on a roll in predicting a run of colours. Sometimes they will have good fortune, but more often than not they will find that the result goes in favour of the house. Some players incorporate systems to try and give themselves the edge over the house, and this is one method of playing the game. With a lot of roulette being played online now, another good way to give yourself an advantage is to shop around for good promotions. If you are new to the game, follow these instructions and you will have a good foundation to build from.

First of all, you need to familiarise yourself with the rules of the game. The odds are normally stacked against you in roulette because of the zero on the wheel. If the ball lands on the zero and you have bet on red or black, then you lose your bet. A lot of players like to put an insurance bet on this number. Play the game when you are in a good state of mind. Set yourself some goals, such as a certain target that if you reach it you will walk away. Also decide how much you are prepared to lose before you cut your losses and leave the table.

The online casino world is a good place to start for newcomers to the game. This is partly because all the rules are available and explained in full, and partly because you can play from the comfort of your own home rather than in the sometimes daunting casino environment.

A lot of online casinos have promotions for first-time players so it is a good idea to search around and find some of the best deals for roulette games. At the time of writing, 32red are offering a no deposit welcome bonus of $10. Players just have to register to start playing with real chips. They also give players a welcome bonus of $32 when they deposit $20 for the first time. Searching around for good deals is a clever way to start. If you can start winning some money without having to invest much of your own then you are on to a good thing.

It's not just welcome bonuses you need to look out for either. Sites like 32red, Betfred and others have plenty of offers that change on a monthly, weekly, or even daily basis. These offers usually cover a wide range of different games as well if you want a change from roulette.

But back to roulette for now. Once you have found some good promotions to take advantage of, you will need to try and put some betting systems in place. Experts of the roulette wheel have developed a plethora of tried and tested methods to try and stack the odds in favour of the player rather than the house. There are too many systems to list but an example of one that can be applied in conjunction with other strategies is the Martingale system.

The Martingale system is a strategy in which the player must double their bet every time they lose, so in theory they will eventually recoup their losses. So you could be betting on red and every time a black came in you would increase your bet by double until a red comes in. Then you would revert back to your original stake. This system only really works if you are playing fairly low stakes as most tables will have a bet limit.

Once you have researched a few systems and found a good promotion you will be ready to start trying to win some money. The last bit of advice to heed is to be sensible. Choose a system and stick to it, because if you deviate you could end up losing a lot more than you had planned. When you reach your target winnings, walk away. Sometimes you can find that a lucky run is quickly followed by a losing streak.
