Why Roulette?

Roulette is an appealing games ranging from the tense anticipation as the ball finds its number to the prospect of winning fantastic cash. It’s a game combine of luck and a good deal of strategy when hedging bets. Furthermore, with beginners of online casino gaming to get started, it seems that roulette is so much more approachable and easy to understand than almost any other table game.

Common Roulette Misconceptions

In order to understand the game of roulette as deeply as possible for enjoyment and certain winning, you should acknowledge certain misconceptions. For instance, players might assume that the odds of winning is 50-50 when betting on either a single colour or evens/odds. In fact, the odd is a little lower than 50% when there is a green section on the roulette wheel, giving the house a slightly higher advantage.

Another misconception is falling into the trap of blinded assuming that if several spins have produced a black result, chances are that the next spin will be red. In fact, one result does not in any way have any bearing or influence over the next when tossing. The actual odds of the ball landing in red or black space are reset after each spin which means that the possibility that the ball will land on a black number 100 times in a row is the same as it will land on an even spread of 50 reds and 50 blacks. 

Lastly, the biggest misconception and even accusation that online roulette is some kind of a scam and offers much lower odds than real life roulette. In fact, it simply isn’t the case. Online casinos are subject to independent verification and testing to ensure all odds are fair, realistic and clearly communicated in order to receive and retain full licensing and permission to operate.
