Many people believe it is impossible to win at online roulette – however there are people making lots of money in online casino. There are some basic ideas to remember if you are going to play roulette strictly for profit and not just as entertainment.

Remember for example that the more pockets the roulette wheel the worse odds you face. In fact the original French Roulette wheels didn’t have a ‘0’ on them until some bright spark decided it would make the house more money. These roulette wheels with a single 0 are generally found in Europe and have 37 pockets – in USA you’ll generally find that the standard wheel has two ‘0’s and 38 pockets. So if you have the choice pick the 37 pockets wheel every time.

Roulette is meant to be a game of chance so technically there will never be a single strategy that will make you money every time. You may have heard of some of them but they are generally based on mathematical misunderstandings. One of the more often touted is that known as the ‘gamblers fallacy’ – which comes from the false belief that if you see a deviation from expected behaviour then these deviations will be evened out by opposite deviations in the future. There if you believed this to win at online roulette you would just wait for a strange sequence and then consistently bet against it – i.e. wait for a long series of reds then start betting on black.

This strategy if often combined with other selected betting strategies like the Martingale method which involves doubling your bet up each time. Remember though it’s not called the ‘gamblers fallacy’ for nothing – the fact is that it has no mathematical basis even if it does sound compelling.

But these statistical fallacies aside – many people do make huge amounts of money gambling with roulette – maybe they’re just lucky. Online roulette though is slightly different – the difficult comes in creating a truly random spin – there are thousands of factors at play when playing real roulette however online roulette requires creating true random numbers from a computer. A computer is simply not the best machine to provide this as ultimately any random event has been programmed – the nearest we can get are pseudo random numbers.
