Five Common Roulette Mistakes to Avoid When Betting Online


You might assume that having a crack at high stakes online roulette would be as straightforward as throwing down a bet and hoping for the best. Some of the time, that may be the case. However, if you want to win, there’s more to it than that. Sometimes it is not about what you do when you play roulette but what you don’t do. Here then, are five common roulette mistakes to avoid when betting online.

Playing Any Old Roulette Games

Firstly, don’t just sit down and play any old roulette games. Each title has its own pros and cons. For instance, American Roulette has double the house edge of European Roulette, which in turn has double the house edge of French Roulette, where La Partage or En Prison rules are in play. Learn about each variant and pick the one that suits your style.

Not Setting Your Balance

Don’t start playing roulette before you have set your balance. Setting a bankroll is important in roulette. Without a proper bankroll, you’re effectively playing blind. You could end up losing immense sums of cash here, and that just isn’t worth it. Be sure to budget before you bet. There are plenty of tips online to help you understand the basics here.

Failing to Understand the Bets

You should never fail to understand the different types of bets in roulette. Take the time to learn about inside bets and outside bets. Discover what racetrack bets do and how they can impact your game. Moreover, learn about those that have the best odds of success and those that don’t. Finally, we’d recommend studying how to cover the wheel.

Trusting Roulette Betting Systems Unconditionally

Don’t put all your trust in roulette betting systems. Yes, some of these can help you manage your finances, and they may even ensure that you break even. However, some are disastrous systems to use if you go on losing streaks and can actually terminate your session faster if things go wrong. We don’t put any stock in roulette betting systems because they are so unreliable. As for so-called guaranteed roulette strategies, don’t believe them, as roulette is a game of chance at best.

And Finally…Chasing Losses

Finally, and this should go without saying – don’t chase your roulette losses. It may be tempting to have one more spin, one more crack at the table. Don’t do it, though. Your chances of recovering everything you’ve lost aren’t remotely good in roulette. Unless you string together a couple of straight-up bets (which can only be done with the very best of luck), you’re not going to recoup what you’ve lost. It is not even worth trying. Instead, it is far better to make an exit strategy before you bet so that when you reach a certain figure (of wins or losses), you call it a day.
