Roulette Strategy: Knowing When It’s Time To Quit 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.

Reasons To Play Blackjack

Reasons To Play Blackjack

By: Ryan D.

Blackjack is by far the most popular table game at online casinos. The reason for this is that if blackjack is played to a correct strategy, the house edge is less than one percent. This is the lowest house edge of any table game. However, most casinos plan based on a house edge of around two per cent. This is simply because they know that most people will not play a correct strategy. Many players give the house a massive advantage by playing erratically (“I know the blackjack has to come right now!”). So, betting decisions made by the player actually affect the advantage that the house holds. In games like roulette, the house edge is 5.26%. Each spin is a completely independent event. The house edge therefore does not change, and cannot be influenced by the player.

In blackjack, events are dependent. This is because as each card is drawn, the possible outcomes of future draws change, as the deck has changes. The more big cards remain in the deck, the more the player is favored. Advantage constantly shifts back and forth between the player and the dealer. Herein lies the basis of card counting. Successful card counters know when the odds favor them, but card counting is a subject all on its own. The issue is that you do not need to be a card counter to bring the house edge down to near one percent.

A mathematically strategy is possible because the dealer and the player are constrained to a set of rules. Basic blackjack strategy has been known for years and many simulations have been run by experts to devise a strategy. With a basic strategy, the player will decide the action to take based on the exposed cards. This will involve hitting or standing on that basis.

In blackjack you want to beat the dealer and get as close as possible to 21. As the player always acts first, you want to sometimes stand on a lower hand in the hope that the dealer will draw a card that will result in a bust. Even if the dealers bust, players who have already bust always lose. Therefore, players have to learn how to play a hand correctly to insure the best outcome based on the mathematically correct strategy.

Blackjack is fun and allows for a correct mathematical strategy, and it is not hard to learn. The great thing about online blackjack is that you can play with the strategy chart right next to you, and make correct decisions on that basis.
