Of the casino games commonly available to players, roulette is often one of the most misunderstood, especially with its many betting options and associated odds. Hoping to shed some light on the game, here are some tips and strategies to improve your roulette experience.
Avoid an Online Casino’s Five-Numbered Bets
The five-number bet in roulette is made in the hopes that the ball will land on any of 0, 00, 1, 2 or 3 (these are always the numbers used in a five-number bet). The five-number bet can only be made using an American style wheel, as European style roulette wheels do not include 00.
The reason that the five-number bet should be avoided is simple math: Online casinos only offer a payout of 6 to 1 for a win. As you are betting on 5 numbers, the return on a 6 to 1 bet would be 1.2 to 1, and that is only if you win.
For example, if you bet $1 on each of the five numbers, and win, the online casino will pay out $6 for your initial $5. Based on the probabilities, all other bets are more worthwhile.
