Roulette. If you want to drive the croupier mad you can just bet black or red level stake but don’t be surprised if everyone laughs when zero pops up. That green will match the colour of your face. But joking aside, what is the best way to bet small, medium or large stakes on the roulette wheel? Obviously, it is your choice but – for what it’s worth – here are my thoughts from the most boring gambler in the world (me).
1) Small Stakes Big Win
The dream bet for every gambler but in truth very unlikely to happen but not beyond the realms. With £20 of 50p chips you can have a decent long game and you might just win big. Betting on a given single number just one chip a time and hope your single comes up a couple of times in a matter of spins. I’ve had a single number come out three times on the bounce (lucky number 5) and it was a great evening. If you get £50 in profit stick your original stake money back in your pocket and play £5 a spin and really hope you get lucky with a time thirty-five. It can happen and if so you can push your luck a little more or just walk away with a couple of hundred on the hip. It’s the way I play, and it really has been a good move over the years.
2) Betting Black Or Red: One Spin
You’ve probably seen this on Youtube where some mad and hopeful punter cashes all their money for chips and bets big. To be fair, I can’t see why anyone would want to do this but if you believe Lady Luck is your constant companion then go for it. Many gamblers lose a few hundred to a grand at a casino on an evening. They may play for a few hours. But you could just as well let one bet spin and double your cash on black or red. If you just want to nip into a casino and go home fast it could be your thing. Good luck if you are this brave and fearless soul.
3) Let’s Cover Every Number On The Table
I think for many roulette players this is their chosen style of betting. I’ve seen punters head to the table with several hundred in £5 chips, cover vast numbers, some with more and less, thinking, hoping, praying one of their numbers comes up, if not a single with a towering stack. You can have a long run with this approach and sometimes be up a good, few quid. The downside is that your betting odds are probably small and one or two spins where you miss a number and you see those punters walk away. I’ve seen many lose several hundred in a very short time. These players often go crazy when they are on a winning streak placing more and more bets and then they go bang.
4) Who Is Winning At Your Table
There is no logic to winning and losing. Each and every number has the same chance of coming up and over thousands of spins all numbers would be remarkably similar. However, it’s funny that someone is often having a purple patch and they seem to win all night long. You could do worse than note who is winning at your casino table and follow suit. At least you can blame someone else if you lose your cash.
5) Free Bet Or Match Bet Warrior
Without question, the best way you can put the odds in your favour on any game play at the casino is with a free or match bet. I’ve had free bets up to £75, match bets of £20 numerous occasions. If you bet small money this extra free cash really gives you every chance of winning. The casino just hope you carry on betting and lose your hard earned cash but the decision is yours. Who says the casino always wins or has the odds stacked in their favour. Foolish words from the non gambler brigade who simply have no idea of how to make the most of opportunities.
