Some might think Roulette is all about throwing money in the drain, but in reality, this game can entrap you with its spinny charm.

Physics combined with a little bit of luck makes this game so alluring that it has kept the gamblers hooked from time immemorial. Roulette is a popular game that is quite old, having its roots in 18th century France.


If you are a novice and want to enjoy this game to the fullest, try to understand the nitty-gritty of the game.

Before understanding European Roulette in a nutshell, go through the 7 online roulette tips for beginners:



  1. Roulette is a game in which a wheel is spun. It has 37 or 38 pockets. 18 pockets are red, 18 more black, and the remaining green. Half the number is even, and the remaining odd. A metal ball is put on the edge, and you bet on which numbered hole it will land. You win if you get it right and lose if you are wrong.
  2. The slots are numbered 0, 00, and 1 to 36 for American Roulette. In European Roulette, there are no 00 and 37 pockets. You can bet straight up for a single number or column bets on any vertical column. Other bets include a dozen bets or betting on color. Every type of bet will give you winning odds in numbers like 35 to 1 for straight up or 1.11 to 1 when betting on color.
  3. Inside bets are more volatile so avoiding them is advisable. When you have a fixed amount you want to spend, you want to be on the table for as long as possible. So avoid certain volatile bids to last longer on the table. Like Straight or Single bet has odds of winning of 35 to 1. Split bids on two adjacent numbers like 14/17 or 8/9 have odds of 17 to 1. Street bids of betting on three consecutive numbers in a horizontal line have odds of 11 to 1, and so on.
  4. Outside bets are less volatile, so using them can help you spend more time at the table. Please remember that these bets lose if a 0 comes. High (19-36) or Low (1-18), Red or Black, and Even Odds all have better odds of a win.
  5.  Avoid betting systems altogether because they sound good in theory but do not work the same in reality. One most common is the Martingale System which asks to double the bet after every loss. Suppose you lose twice betting on red. First, $5 and then $10. You win a $20 bet on red the third time. However, you do not have infinite money to spend. Otherwise, you will run into the betting limits of the table. Even if you have a lot of money to spend.
  6. Find a European Roulette table as it does not have 00. You have one less pocket to worry about, which increases your odds of winning.
  7. The last and most vital suggestion is to plan a budget. Never exceed the budget. In gambling, you will lose more than you win, a proven fact in probability. So, take only that much money that you afford to lose.
