Roulette Strategy: Knowing When It’s Time To Quit The Roulette Table

Have a Strategy At The Roulette Table

By: Anthony Richards

Just like any other form of investment, if you go to spend money at a roulette table without having a strategy in mind, it’s very likely that you will come unstuck.

A roulette strategy doesn’t have to be rocket science. The main thing is that you must draw certain lines before you start playing. If you win or lose and you are taken over these lines, a trigger must go off in your head that tells you it’s time to walk away from the roulette table.

Sure, if you are on holiday in Vegas, and the drinks are flowing nicely, you’re probably not going to be that bothered if you win or lose. At the end of the day, you are there to have fun and a good time right?

Fair enough, but wouldn’t your roulette playing experience be so much more enjoyable, if you left the casino as a winner, and not a loser?

Whether you are playing roulette in an offline casino, or over the Internet, I strongly recommend that you have some sort of ‘strategy or game plan that you intend to stick to’, before you bet a single chip.

How Much Money Are You Are Prepared To Lose At The Roulette Table?

You should be very clear in your own mind, exactly how much money you are prepared to lose, before you start playing.

Don’t say to yourself: ‘I’ll stop if I lose ‘about’ $200′

What is about $200?

$250, $300?

Your losses can soon mount up if you don’t know when to walk away. Set your limit, and be damn sure you stick to it. Then you’ll be able to come back a play again on another day.

The people who rack up huge gambling debts, are the ones who don’t know when to quit.

Master this one gambling principle, and you’ll already be streets ahead of all the other roulette players and gamblers out there. Being a successful roulette player is not just about winning, you have to understand that you can’t win every time you play.

Set Yourself A Profit Target Before You Start Playing Roulette…

Just as you need to set a target on how much money you are prepared to lose, it’s equally as important to set a profit target.

When you reach this target, you must be very strict on yourself and walk away…profit in hand. If there is a sure thing, it’s that you can’t ride a winning streak all night long, day in, day out.

You have to master the discipline of taking your profits when you reach a predetermined level. Cool off, clear your head, then maybe come back later in the day or preferably the next day.

Roulette gambling systems

Roulette may look like a very simple game in a casino but it may surprise you to know that among all of the games hosted in a casino or online gambling site, more gambling systems are formulated to try to beat the roulette wheel than any other game.

It is true that an established gambling system will help you gain an advantage when playing roulette but don’t think that there is a system that can guarantee that you will become a multi-millionaire playing roulette in a casino or online gambling site.

A far more realistic goal is to stay ahead in the game even if by a small margin.

One must realize that in a game of chance like roulette, you can never be sure of winning. But employing a system will mean that you can make the losses a little more manageable and grant you a chance to actually win a significant amount of spins. A winning system should be one that has a good strategy that will allow you to win and concurrently keep you ahead for the duration of your game.

Based on the experience of professional gamblers and gambling systems makers, roulette systems in which the foundation is on sequential or conditional probability does not work in real-world applications giving very inconsistent results. The reason for this is that roulette is not a game of probability.

It must be pointed out that each spin of the roulette wheel is considered a new spin and the outcome cannot be predicted by any of the previous spins — the same applies to online roulette games. What this means is that the chance of a particular result in each roulette spin remains the same and a probability advantage cannot possibly be formulated.

Even after nine successive roulette results of black there is still no higher probability that the next result will be Red. As gambling systems experts reveal, a roulette wheel does not have a memory nor does it keep a record of the prior results of past roulette spins. It is a “popular” fallacy for gamblers to think that probability plays a big role in establishing or following a system in playing roulette.

Of course, in theory, roulette is perceived as a game of probability. With the casino advantage of 5.26 per cent for American roulette (2.7 per cent for European roulette) it is believed that ultimately players are sure losers. But in practice, players actually think of roulette as a game of chance and thus they have a good chance of actually winning.

For example, if I decided to bet $3 on Red for 40 spins on an American roulette wheel, the theory would be that I will alternately win and lose every other spin and that after the total spins, I will lose $6 for two times the zero outcome.

But in actual real-world practice, during the total number of hours you will play the 40 spins, you will, depending on your luck be up or down by more than $6 and making a decision of when to stop playing roulette will ultimately determine how much you will win or lose.
