Players can bet between one to thirty six (1-6) numbers or between one and thirty five (1-5) numbers. It is the latter variety of roulette where the bets are placed in a table layout. Bets are of two types. There are inside bets and outside bets.
A Inside bet is a wager on one particular number. This bet has a low payout and, therefore, these bets are best played by expert players. A Outside bet is a bet on eighteen numbers that are spread across the table. This bet has a higher payout.
The zero slots are often used in place of eighteen numbers. This is a special kind of roulette bet as the bets on the zero are the highest. This slot can be ‘called’ by the dealer. When it is ‘called’, the dealer changes the wheel and spins the ball in the opposite direction of the wheel.
The table has sections that are in red and sections that are in black. These represent the numbers that are on the wheel. The numbers are arranged into three columns that are one to nine (1-9), a zero and a double zero (00).
The layout of the table shows the payouts for each number. The payouts are as follows: two numbers equals to 1, three numbers equals to 2, four numbers equals to 3, five numbers equals to 4, six numbers equals to 5, and seven numbers equals to 6.
If one would bet on a single number, the odds are 5.26% for winning. If one bets on two numbers, the odds are 5.70% for winning. If one bets on all numbers, the odds are 7.89% for winning.
The dealer hits the wheel with the smallest numbered slot. This is called a ‘ruly’ or ‘free’ spin. The player wins as long as the spin has a zero or double zero. Otherwise, the player loses. The player can hold out for a ‘true’ or ‘free’ spin as long as the spin has a zero or 00. However, if the spin has a third ‘0’ or ’00’ slot, the player loses.
On any ‘true’ or ‘free’ spin, the house edge is calculated as the house percentage divided by the total combinations of ‘true’ or ‘free’ spins. In other words, the house edge is the profit percentage of the casino. This is the way the house ensures its future profit regardless of the probability of the outcome.
In roulette, any color bet can win. Regardless of the previous spin, the red bet will win on every subsequent ‘true’ or ‘free’ spin. The probability that the player will win all 15 numbers is 1 in 31.ributes Gold Rule to roulette betting. The Gold Rule in roulette betting is a simple strategy that even experienced players use.
The basic probability of winning a bet is the product of the probability of each number or color that comes up. The probability that a number will not come up is the product of the same probability for all the numbers that are not drawn. The formula is, 1/probability for each number or color = 1/probability for each number or color. The key is to remember that 2-color wheels have twice as many colors as wheels with a single color. The net profit is thus calculated by the total amount of colors. Of course, the more colors there are on a wheel, the more the profit.
To be able to exploit the profit, you have to bet in a way that you can expect to win. This means that you have to be able to make a profit even if you fail to predict the winning number. By betting on all colors and sizes, you have a chance to achieve a win and make a profit regardless of the number that comes up.
It is best to exploit the strategy without a sure win if you have no good bets spread among the numbers. This way, you can least lose your money even if you have a bad prediction for a particular number to come up. You will still make a profit even if you win less than 50% of your bets.
