Roulette Machine Tips

Roulette machines have been in the U.K. since the early 2000’s, in that time they have caused a massive growth in the amount of betting shops on the High Street, with most towns having at least two bookies, with four roulette machines per shop.

There are two main suppliers of roulette machines; Inspired Gaming who provide Betfred and William Hill with their machines, and SG-Gaming who supply Coral and Ladbrokes.

Following on from the FOBT Cheats article, I have written the best ways to play these games, and suggested methods to avoid.

Roulette Machine Betting Tips

No one likes to lose, which is why people bet ‘safe’, but safe betting just results in a gradual loss with very little prospect of a large win.

So what is safe betting? Safe betting is where you cover all of, or nearly the entire roulette table with chips. This will ensure that there are no total losses, but the wins will also be very low.

This type of betting will almost always result in a gradual lose, and very little real prospect of any significant profit, or any profit at all in the majority of cases.

People tend to bet like this when they may have only £10 or £20 to spend, but as you are pretty much certain to lose anyway, why not up your stakes?

Use your money to put £1 or £2 on a single number, and spread the rest around. At least that way, when you do hit a good number, you’ll actually have a good win.

Of course, you can bet in any way to suit you, but I wouldn’t recommend covering more than 60% of the table, that way when you win you’ll be making money, and a winning streak may result in a good profit.

Bonus Roulette

Only play the bonus roulette games if you are actually playing for the bonus. If you are using it as a standard roulette game, the odds are slightly worse because bonus roulette will often have one or two extra slots to activate the bonus. So stick to standard roulette if you are wanting to play a traditional roulette game.

Using Past History

As the roulette machines are random, the past history is meaningless. Zero goes a hundred or more spins plenty of times with been hit, and a number is certainly never due.

In this regard, bet how you want to bet, not by how the roulette machine is suggesting you to play.

Constantly Losing?

There is a reason people lose a lot more on roulette machines than they do in say a real world or internet casino, and that is mainly due to the speed at which the bets can be placed, as well as the betting limits put in place on the roulette machines.

If you were in a real world casino using real chips, there is no repeat bet button. The spins also take around two minutes, and not the twenty seconds as they do on the roulette machines.

So how can you combat this?

Well, if you really want to gamble, visit your local casino for better odds and a nicer environment. Or play online for different stakes. Sky Casino (owned by the famous Sky brand), uses live dealers, and some of their roulette games can be played for just 1p per spin. There are also very high betting limits for those that want a high limit game. Sky Casino also offer £20 free just for registering, so they are worth a look.

In summary, to enhance your game, change your betting pattern or betting location.

If you are playing just to pass the time, ask a member of staff if you can play in demo mode.
