European Roulette or American Roulette

Ok lets get straight down to business, the casinos edge in Roulette is basically the 0 or 00.

In American Roulette there are 38 possible places for the ball to stop and 2 zeros there is a 0 and a 00 (both green) this decreases your odds and reduces the effectiveness of the roulette system we describe one our roulette system page. So as much as we love America when it comes to roulette we have to go with the math and say you have better chances of winning buy playing European Roulette.

In European Roulette there is only one '0' so you have a almost evens odds of red or black or odds or evens coming up. We see almost evens as the actual odds are not quite 1-1 but 1.014-1 in the favor of the casino (because of that 0). With these odds it is possible to make alot of money using the roulette system as described on our Roulette System page. Of course casinos always have a maximum and a minimum bet this this is the casinos defence against systems such as the one we have shown. For example at the time of writing at Jackpot City Casino the minimum bet on European Roulette is $1 and the Maximum bet is $80 so lets see how the system pans out

Here you can practice totally free european roulette at your own leisure. The site also offers lots of informaion on roulette strategies.

European Roulette Strategy Examples

Example 1

Bearing in mind you have an almost 1 to 1 or as we often say 50:50 chance of a red or a black (same applies to odds or evens and highs or lows) The table below shows what would happen if the laws of 1 to 1 probabiltiy panned out.

As you can see After ten bets at $1 or $2 you would be $4 up!

Example 2

Lets just say you get a bit of bad luck and the house's edge (thats the 0 for the purpose of this system) comes up. Below we see what would happen using this system.

Your Bet
What comes up
Win or Lose
Winnings / Loses
$1 on Red
Black

As you can see even when you lose 7 out of ten bets you still come out with a $4 profit over ten bets using this system.

As you can see above over 10 bets if you lose 7 in a row you have some what of a problem we have shown 8 loses in a row to emphasise our point. We know this looks bad but although possible it is unlikely. This being said it can and does happen we have seen Blacks appear up to 12 times in a row before. It should be remembered that this does not spell the end of the game, provided you have the nerve and a big enough pot you can of course win it all back below we show what could happen if this game was to be continued.

You will notice we put in another losing streak of 9 losses in a row! Even with that if you stick to the system as shown you would come out with $101 at the end of 37 bets. You will also notice that we used 37 bets and you won just under half of them (18 to be exact) and the Casino won 19 of them (its that 0 advantage of theirs again).

We cannot and do not in any way guarantee that you will win using the above system. We suggest you take full advantage of the casinos play for free facility and try the system out for yourself and only bet real money when you are happy with it yourself.
