Despite what many people say the casino game of roulette has no winning strategy, it is a game of pure luck which is probably one of the reasons that it remains one of the most popular games at online casinos and land based casinos alike. Simply because the last eight or nine numbers have been red has absolutely no bearing on what the next number will be, it is still a 50/50 chance of it being red or black but of course over the long term when playing roulette you would expect as many black numbers as red numbers to come up but the difficulty comes in determining long term and even if you played for hours this would still be considered short term. There is no strategy when playing online roulette and nor are there any bets which are better than others which is partially due to the fact that there are 36 numbers and the number 36 has got to be one of the most flexible numbers there is as it divisible by 2,3,4,6,8 and 12 which means that odds can be given that make all bets equal in risk and reward. To take an example of this suppose you place a 4 chip corner bet which is 4 adjacent numbers on the roulette table; the alternative would be to place a one chip bet on each of the four numbers separately and as the corner bet only pays at odds of 8:1 whereas the single number bet pays at 35:1 some will try to convince you that the single number bets are better. When playing roulette however it makes no difference which way you bet. In the first instance you have 4 chips which pays at 8:1 making 32 chips and your original stake of 4 chips remains making 36 chips in total. In the second instance you only have one chip on the winning number which pays at 35:1 plus your original one chip stake remains making also 36 chips. There are no good bets or bad bets when you play roulette so simply spread your bets around the roulette table and hope that luck is on your side.
