A small white ball determines which number wins, depending on where it lands after spinning several times passed the numbers. French and European roulettes have 37 numbers and colored pockets while American roulette wheels have 38.
Here are some easy and helpful tips for you, before you go and place your bets:
Place your bet on the outside.
Consider placing your bets on the outside chances. You may get marginal results but there is a higher chance of you winning the game. Try to start with a $5 wager first. This is a reasonable amount if you decided to place a single wager on each spin. Go ahead and increase the number of your wager once you start winning.
Reserve your winnings.
Whether you start with a small amount or not, always reserve some of your winnings. It is better to leave the casino with a bit more rather than leaving with only a breakeven or worse, losing all your money. Try to control your temptation with placing your bets, and make sure to make some deposits on your bank. Always keep this strategy in mind because you do not want to bet everything in knowing that there is a fifty percent chance of losing it all.
Set a budget and a limit for your loss.
Never play more than what you are prepared to lose for the night. You may have a good night and will continue winning but there are times that Lady Luck is not with you. If you arrived on a table with only $100 on your pocket, make sure that you still get to keep that on your pocket. Money will come and go and always be prepared to accept your defeat.
