# Improving Your Odds on Roulette

Posted by Nick Niesen on October 26th, 2010

When I play at roulette I choose only the best bets (you win less money but you have more low risk than at the other bets).

Be careful to only play at European Roulette because the American one has an extra double zero and this gives the house and edge of the European one, which has a house edge of just 2.70%. On American wheel, the house has an advantage of 5.26% so don?t even try ;).

I?ll now show you what the best ones to choose:

The Column Bet
If you look at the roulette table you will easily see three columns with 12 numbers each. These are known in
European Roulette as dozens.
The best method is to bet on two of the three columns so now you have 24 numbers covered and converted in a 2:1 bet. Statistically you have 63,16% of changes to win using this method.
Example: you bet \$20 on each of the two columns. If you win, you will be receiving \$40, so you have a profit of \$20.
On the other hand, the probability of winning in 10 spins is at least 50%.
ATTENTION: house odds are known to increase if you play too much time. If you are winning, walk away with your profits ;).

En Prison European Roulette Rule
This rule (only available in European Roulette) reduces the house edge and it is a good bet spot to bet on, but this rule only works on even-money bets: high/low (or 1-18/19-36) bets, even/odd bets and red/black bets. Basically the rule states that if comes out a zero, you receive back half of the bet or you can leave the whole bet for the next spin.
This method reduces the casino edge down to 1.35%. That?s a good method to try ;).

Situation Bets
Situation bets have the odds highly against you (that?s the reason of the payout being high.
However, if you study the numbers that come out during some spins (100 or more) you can have a clear idea of numbers that never showed up and then you can bet some into that. For me it worked sometimes and as the payout is very high I use it too and keep tracking the numbers that come out all the time.
I have found a great and FREE software that can help you with the tracking and analysis of the numbers that came out that is called ?Realtime Roulettemaster? and is very simple to use.

Do not play for too much long periods of time.
Always remember that it?s a luck game we can just improve the odds of winning, and in bad days we can lose so don?t get greedy this is making money for fun?
In my website I have some more tips to you to play casino games and increase your odds. Try it out, if you want to win of course!
Be aware that those games are addictive. Play Smart ;)
