# Roulette Tips

Posted by Nick Niesen on October 26th, 2010

Roulette casino game, like slot machines, is a game of plain luck where no skill or strategy is able to influence its outcome. Every spin of the casino roulette wheel is totally independent of all previous spins. No mathematical formula can be applied to explain and to predict the unpredictable behavior of the ball on the casino roulette wheel. Do not expect one of the numerous "roulette winning strategies" would work for you simply because there is none!

But there is one strong theory that a a roulette player can increase his chances by playing the single zero roulette. The European or French roulette casino game table has 37 numbers including zero, while the American roulette table has 38 numbers including zero and double zero. Casinos almost always have both types of roulette casino game tables. According to this theory, which some people claim has been mathematically proven, players should only play the French roulette gambling game with a single zero.

It should make their chances better by a few percent comparing to the American roulette casino game.

When you are going to play the French roulette casino game, ask if the casino uses the "En prison" rule which increases a player's odds. According to the rule, an even money bet (Red, Black, Odd, Even, 1?18, 19?36) that results in a spin of zero gets "imprisoned". If this imprisoned bet wins on the next spin, the original bet is released and returned to the player.

Casinos with the American roulette casino game sometimes use a version of the "En prison" rule called "Surrender". With this rule in use, player placing even bets only loses half of his bet on a spin of 0 or 00.

Try your luck, hope for the best and have fun!
