Two Simple Roulette Betting Strategies

Roulette is a popular casino game which involves players making bets on where they think that the ball will land in a roulette wheel. Players can bet on a roulette board which has numbers that correspond to those in the roulette wheel.

American roulette wheels typically have 38 colored and numbered pockets on the wheel, whereas in Europe there are usually 37 numbers on the wheel. There are several systems which may help to give players an edge when playing roulette either online or on a casino. We reveal two simple roulette strategies and what they entail.

The James Bond Strategy

Ian Fleming, the famous author who wrote the Bond series, said that this strategy would earn him the price of a good dinner when he used it everyday.

To start you will need the equivalent of $200 worth of chips. You will place $140 as a column bet onto the numbers 19-36. Then place $50 on numbers 13 – 18 and the remaining $10 worth of chips onto 0. Although this theory is certainly not foolproof (as Fleming proclaims), if the ball lands between 13 – 36 or on 0 you will enjoy a tidy profit.

Odd or Even Bets

This is one of the most simple betting strategies out there. It works by watching a game until several odd or even number have come up consecutively. When you spot a pattern you are ready to place a bet onto odd or even (the opposite of the winning streak that has happened).

Try out the above strategies for yourself and see how they work out for you. You never know, you could get lucky!
