# 4 Roulette Betting Tactics

Roulette can be easily won, if not for its high house advantage. This characteristic, apart from the simplistic and fast-paced game design, is what drives many to play roulette. Many, in fact, play roulette solely for the sake of winning instead of mere enjoyment, thanks to the few who made their names by “breaking the bank”, or winning all the money in the table.

As such, many can’t help but ask about what should be done in order to win roulette. Some may argue that one should just do nothing but rely on luck. Others meanwhile, think that the roulette wheel can produce a certain pattern of spin results, and the player can win if he can figure it out. Still, some advocate that one can win by predicting the results through the laws of physics.

### What Should Really Be Done to Win?

With a bit of thinking however, the most logical conclusion on the problem of winning – that is, making profits – in roulette lies in no other than the way one places his or her bets on the table. That’s not where or what, but how, and here’s why: relying on luck won’t do anything at all, the theory of roulette wheel patterns is no more than fallacious baloney, and roulette wheel prediction is extremely hard to put to practice and only works on paper.

### Betting Tactics to Win Roulette

So what roulette betting tactics will give the best possibility of winning in roulette? These are the following:

1. Put your stakes on even-money bets.
Even-money bets are those exclusive pairs of bets wherein one can win while the other loses – in other words, bets with fifty-fifty chances of winning. Well that’s not exactly the probability of winning outside bets in roulette, which comes at a little over 73%, thanks to the presence of the zero which is never covered by roulette’s even-money bets. Still, this is the highest you can get from the game and something you just can’t take for granted. Such bets are the red, black, even, odd, high numbers, and low numbers slots.

2. Bet on dozens and columns.
Dozens, which refer to horizontal groups of twelve bets, and columns, referring to a dozen bets arranged vertically, are also recommended bets. This is mainly because they cover a lot of space in the table, which is also the point of even-money bets.

3. Place bets on numbers within certain sectors of the wheel.
Wheels in European and some American casinos are often divided into certain sectors within which the ball may land. Betting on most or all numbers within these sectors will likely give your chances of winning a boost, especially since your bets aren’t that scattered all over the wheel.

4. Use a roulette betting system.
Roulette systems, though still dependent on chance, are built upon mathematical calculations that ensures profit if their relatively simple conditions are fulfilled. For instance, you’ll only be required to win once with the more aggressive strategies, or a set of times for slower ones. In any case, you get better hopes of making profit, provided that you are lucky enough.

True, you can’t beat chance when playing roulette. However, you can take advantage of the probabilities involved and increase the possibility of winning roulette.
