Is There a Strategy for Online Roulette?


There is just something hypnotizing about the red and black wheel spinning next to that grid of numbers on green felt. It is pleasant and cathartic. Unlike black jack or poker where reading tells and making odds calculations require constant attention and action, roulette is a relatively passive game. Once your chips are down, the wheel does all the work.


Many people play this game in real life and online. Sometimes they are successful. Are there certain strategies or tricks one can use when playing online roulette to help turn this diversion into an ATM? What about those people keeping notes of every number the marble ‘chooses’, are they on to something? In fact, they are on to something, but significantly increased online roulette winnings are probably not one of them. In fact, other than relatively simple profit and loss calculations there is not much to roulette other than the physics of that marble which we can only understand as luck.


It does not matter how many times out of 100 the marble lands on a certain number. Assuming an unlimited number of spins, the number of times the marble lands on any particular number will be equal to the number of times it landed on every other number. Mathematically, no single number on the grid is a better bet.


Above it was stated that online roulette is really about profit and loss calculations. There are a number of bets one can make in online roulette, and the most successful way to play roulette is with both temperance, a hearty dose of patience, and knowing which types of bets to avoid. Since winnings accrue over time, one must spread and minimize the necessary losses incurred along the way. This means two things.


First, you must learn to play in controlled sessions. Base the length of an online roulette session on both your betting bank and your level of acceptable losses. Establish a winnings goal. It is important here to be reasonable and to not grow greedy when your goal is met. The goal should really not be more than 5% to 10% of your bank. If your betting bank is $100, then $5 to $10 in winnings is a good goal. If you reinvest your winnings into your betting bank, the 5%-10% becomes a larger figure over time. On good nights where you might want to press your luck, try restricting your play to betting on pure winnings so that if and when luck runs out you close the session even at the least.


Why such a modest goal? The goal is modest because the number one mistake people make at online roulette is that they spend too long there. If you avoid the outrageous bets there is a good chance you’ll be up at some point. A lot of people who are up, however, walk away with a loss in the end because they pushed the probability of success too far. A modest 5% - 10% goal keeps your expectations of reward modest and under control. Save those dramatic bets for the poker room re-raises where they actually do help!


In addition to a betting bank, and because there will be tough sessions, decide on a maximum loss. Of the $100 in your betting bank, how much are you willing to lose to online roulette? Determine the limit before you are at the wheel and stick to it. Losing any more than half is not suggested. If you set your limit at 50% and then hit that limit, take a break and use the remaining 50% to win the bank back another, perhaps luckier time.
