Roulette Betting Systems for Beginning Players

Published on: November 20, 2013 

Roulette is one of those games that a lot of players tend to learn on a basic level and then ignore because it seems like it's too straight-forward without many twists and turns. You can change this by learning some more complicated betting systems. However, to make this friendly for new players, we're not going to get too advanced here. Instead, we're going to show you some example bets to add to your system and give you some ideas to think about on your own so that you can build a system of your own that you are comfortable with.

On any standard roulette game like French, European or American roulette, you can calculate the payout rate of a single bet with a simple calculation. Divide 36 by however many squares you're betting on and subtract one from that. The result will be the payout rate for a bet. For example, if you bet on the 1-12 spot, you're betting on 12 places. Divide 36 by 12 to get 3, and then subtract one to get 2. Your payout rate on this bet will be 2:1. If you use this shortcut, you'll be able to quickly figure out the payout rates of complicated bets as long as all of your bet sizes are the same.

Roulette is broken up between high-risk bets like straight-up bets and low-risk bets like evens bets. Your goal is to find the right mix of high-risk and low-risk bets that make the game exciting for you. For example, suppose that you pick your favorite number on the reel and make a $5 bet on it. Then you could also pick the same color of that number and bet another $5. This would create three betting tiers. You could either lose $5, break even or win a substantial amount. This particular strategy would be low-variance with a chance for a good payout if you hit your straight-up bet.

You can break up tiers in other ways as well. For example, you could bet $5 on black and another $5 on odd. This would create three tiers in a similar way and lower the variance of regular evens bets. Overall, you can manipulate your variance in this game without having to worry about the actual average payout rate changing since the bets are all worth the same in roulette except for the 0, 00, 1, 2 and 3 bet in American roulette which is worse.
