European roulette is a little different than roulette found in America. The small difference is that the European roulette wheel has 37 pockets that are both colored and numbered, whereas the American roulette wheel has 38 colored and numbered pockets. As for the premise of the game, the rules do remain the same.
Even Einstein said, “You cannot beat a roulette table unless you steal money from it.” This statement rings true with the fact that it is difficult to know where the ball is going to land on the wheel. That is why the true strategy of roulette is in the betting and not so much as to where the ball is going to land.
Some try to utilize various betting strategies such as the Martingale betting strategy where the player doubles their bet after each loss. That way, the first win will recover all of the previous losses and also win back the betted amount that was put down on the bet that won. Some prefer this particular strategy, but others feel it is rather flawed and yields long-term loss.
Another system that some feel is a good betting system is the Fibonacci system where the bets are calculated based on what is called the Fibonacci sequence. This sequence is a mathematical sequence that some feel will get them the advantage they need over the roulette wheel.
Regardless of any specific progression or strategy, the European roulette wheel holds mysteries that not even the savviest of players can unravel. But one can take comfort in the fact that through various betting strategies, roulette players have gained a greater edge than if they had never had any specific strategy at all. Yet you always want to spread out the bankroll and have fun doing it.
