Playing Online Roulette

When most people think of playing casino games online, they automatically think of poker or blackjack. However, there are those that play Roulette online and they find that this is just as enjoyable as if they were playing at a regular table in a land based casino. Playing online once required that you had a Flash player in order to get this game to work properly and this could be downloaded for free. Nowadays modern technologies, and specifically HTML5, allow to play without the need of any additional software. Anyway having a fast internet connection is still helpful as this can decrease the lag time between spinning the wheel and seeing the results.

You can choose to play Roulette online for free or you can play the game for real and put actual money at stake. However, for those that are just starting to play online, it is a good idea to start with a free game in order to get used to the technology and the way the game works. In games that offer this feature, you will have to simply pick the number and the colour that you want to bet on. You can choose to bet on evens, odds, a particular number or a particular combination when placing your bets. Then, you hit the button that says ‘SPIN’, and then hope for the best. The negative side is that you can certainly win, but, unfortunately, no real money will end up in your account.

It is important to note that until you get use to the game and learn how to really master roulette, the free games are the best option. Otherwise, you could end up losing a lot of money that you cannot really afford. Playing for money usually requires that you have a credit card on file which will be charged for the money that you spend. For those having a gambling problem, this could be a huge issue to definitely avoid. Playing online just for fun is also a great way to understand the basics of the game before playing the game in a live casino environment, since you at least get down the fundamentals and learn the dos and don’ts of the game.

An interesting feature when playing online is that you can find yourself playing against a number of people that are from all over the world, especially during casino tournaments. This can open up a whole new world for people who may have never played in such settings before.

Overall, the amount of online play when it comes to Roulette has increased exponentially in recent years thanks to technology advancements which enable a better graphics and faster play, together with the possibility to play at your own best convenience, even directly on your mobile device, whether it is a smartphone or a tablet.

Gambling Secrets

Yes, there ARE a few gambling secrets that can help you beat the casino. In the nine years I worked at the Leelanau Sands Casino near Suttons Bay, Michigan, I saw a lot of hopeful schemes and ideas. Some of them even worked. Here are a couple examples.

Card Counting Secrets

Card counting is a technique for beating the house at the blackjack tables. If the deck is “rich” enough in face cards (10,J,Q,K), the odds tilt slightly in favor of the player. This has been proven statistically. The idea then, is to monitor the cards as they come out, and when the deck has many face cards left in it, bet more. If you bet less when the house has the edge, and more when you do, you can make money in the long run.
