Know the complex bets
When we are talking about betting on roulette, in addition to several tips and tricks, there are bets on the game, which is are a bit more comprehensive than the simple bets - are complex betting calls. They involve bets on two or four numbers that are adjacent to each other and demand a little more strategy.
Complex bet on two simple numbers
It is a simple bet, but in two numbers, with which the likelihood of hitting is just double a normal simple bet. The only requirement to make these bets is that the two numbers are in squares of the pasted frame; That is, next to each other.
:: For example: Make your bet on 1 and 2, or 11 and 12, or 16 and 19, or 29 and 30. These two numbers that chooses for your bet may be together vertically and horizontally, thus increasing the chance of gain. To make this bet just put your bet's chips on the board line between the two chosen numbers. This is also called Split Bet.
Complex bet on a group of four numbers
With the same basic principle of the previous bet, but in this case, we will put the bets on four numbers. These groups of four numbers can be both horizontal and vertically.
:: For example: Make a bet on the group (16, 17, 19 and 20), or for the group (32, 33, 35 and 36), and so on. The only requirement of this bet is that the numbers are one next to others. To accomplish this bet, you should put your chips on the intersection between these adjacent 4 squares and the dealer, then you will see that this is your move!
Types of bets and probabilities of gain on roulette
The basic principle to understand how roulette pays profits to players, is quite simple: "The greater the difficulty, the greater the payment you receive". That is, the less chances of getting the winning number, the higher the amount paid, as we can observe in the table below:
|Bet||Bet of bet||Probability||Payment||House advantage|
|Par (even)||External||48,6%||1: 1||2,7%|
|Odd (odd)||External||48,6%||1: 1||2,7%|
|Red (red)||External||48,6%||1: 1||2,7%|
|Therefore (Black)||External||48,6%||1: 1||2,7%|
|A single number (Straight-up)||Internal||2,7%||35: 1||2,7%|
|Horse (Split)||Internal||5,4%||17: 1||2,7%|
|Street (street)||Internal||8,1%||11: 1||2,7%|
|Corner (Corner)||Internal||10,8%||8: 1||2,7%|
|Line six||Internal||16,2%||5: 1||2,7%|
Basically, the terms 'internal bets' and 'external', refer to the interior and exterior of the table, and the provisions in which the bets can be carried out. As we can see, in case of hitting the number on the ball will stop, the player wins the value bet x35! However, more realistic bets, and less risky, how to bet on lines or columns are more common because it also increases the chances of the player.
Betting systems and strategies in roulette
Roulette is one of the casino games with more strategies formulated over the years. This is because the game itself allows numerous possibilities and plays. Among the most famous, we will introduce the Martingale system, reverse martingale and Fibonacci.
Martingale is the most popular strategy of roulette online, where it consists of bending the initial bet after each loss. The goal is to gain a hand from your first bet, before losing everything to the casino.
In this strategy, instead of bending your bets after each defeat, the player must fold it after each victory. When compared to the strategy of Martingale, the chances of winning are not so great.
For the Fibonacci strategy, the use of a mathematical sequence is used. The player should start by betting the minimum value at the beginning of the game. The goal is to pass the numbers in sequence until you see a victory. When this happens, the player must return some numbers and restart the sequence.
The different types of roulette
Basically, there are three different types of roulette that you can find when it is a physical casino, or even online, and are them: European roulette, American roulette and French roulette.
It is the first model created, and continues to be the most popular, to this day. It has its origin in France at the end of the eighteenth century. Originally, had 36 houses with the corresponding numbers, alternating red and black, without zero number, which was only added to the game in 1843. The total number of houses in this game, then passed 37, with a zero at the end of the table, making the advantage of the house in this type of roulette 2,70%, slightly smaller than on American roulette, for example. You can notice that this roulette is still the most common to meet in physical or online casinos.
As soon as the first zero was added to the rolls in 1843, the European and French versions of this popular casino game were then created. At the beginning of the 19th century a new house appeared in this roulette: the green house; with two zeros (00) by your side. The call "Double zero" is usually found in front of the existing zero numeral, and was added to the roulette to give the casino more chances to win, which corresponds to 5,26%.
As in the case of European roulette, this roulette has only a zero, and both resemble well. It is the variant that presents more advantage for the player, due to its special feature known as "en prison". This roulette rule, also known for Royal wheel, determines that half of 50/50 betting money (red or black, pair or odd) is returned to players, in case of a zero, lowering the advantage of the casino to 1,35%.
