The House Edge:
In Roulette, there are 2 types of wheels you can choose between: The American wheel has 38 slots numbered from the 00, 0 to 36. The two zero's provide the house an edge of 5.26%. A European wheel has 37 slots numbered from the 0 to 36. Only one zero gives the house has an advantage of just 2.70%, thus, making this the simple decision. Always remember though, no matter which wheel you decide on, that you can never remove the house advantage in this game.
Roulette Systems and the House Advantage:
Roulette is strictly a game of chance hence the house advantage can never actually be removed. A very good system helps to reduce it though. Bought and paid for systems based the probability of the next spin on the preceding ones. If however every spin is not related to the prior spin, it is unproductive trying to use past data, as it has no relevance to the future. People often feel that if red has come up five times in a row, black has a higher possibility of coming up next. This theory isn't mathematically based what colours and numbers come up are purely random.
The most effective Roulette System:
Again, we suggest playing on the European wheel. Once you've chosen your wheel, it's time for you to place your wagers.
Bets to Place: Stay with bets whose odds and payouts are even.
These "even money" bets include wagering on Even, Odd, Low (numbers 1 through 18), High (numbers 19 through 36), Red, or Black. All these pay out at 1 to 1. Look for a wheel which offers the rule 'en prison.' With this rule if you make even money bets and the wheel lands
on zero, you do not lose your wager. Instead, your bet is 'imprisoned' i.e. held hostage, and you let it go forward to the next spin. Should your bet wins, you can remove it from the table. The house edge is just 1.35% on this bet.
Decreasing the House Advantage as Much as Possible: These options are more or less all you can do to get the house edge down as low as possible, to about 1.35%. This allows the chance to earn some cash, as well as enjoy the delight that comes with the game of Roulette. These pointers apply for both online roulette and actual casino roulette, but playing on the internet is an inconvenience free solution.
