The most commonly played single number in roulette happens to be 17 because it is the favorite of a certain James Bond. While you pick up the numbers for the game, make sure that you strive to turn the odds in your favor through some intelligent betting. The ultimate aim of any player would be to increase the winning chances by incorporating the maximum possible betting options. It is a comparatively safer bet where the odds in the favor of the player would be as high as 63-16 in American Roulette game.
Playing the numbers 7-12, 13-18, 19-24, 25-30 in all or any of these four lines could be a winning strategy as you run a fair chance of winning in this approach. Roulette is one of the most popular money spinners in the gambling world and being a simple game of chance it draws numerous novices as well as pros. Though it offers an amazing array of irresistible betting options, the catch is that almost all odds are placed in favor of the house.
In the American Roulette Wheel with 38 numbers (numbers 0, 00, 1-36), your winning chances would be minimal if you place bets on a straight or a split bet involving single and double numbers respectively. With other bets such as a dozen bet or an odd or even bet (which covers eighteen numbers), you would be covering eighteen numbers out of a possible 38 that you can turn the tide in your favor to some extent. It carries a comparatively low risk of losing your bet amount so in case you have the money to bet for 12 or 18 numbers at one go, it would be a safer option.
Make sure to have combinations that can be wagered to cover them all. If you are a greenhorn, single bets like red or black, even or odd, could be the simplest possible options to net a fair chance of winning.
Opting for even-money wagers and to play a small progressive wagering set would be a sensible option. For instance bet on black four times in a row after it has missed continuously for four times in a row and slowly increasing each bet as you go by. Though this is a very old fashioned approach, it will anyway ensure that your losses are kept within reasonable limits apart from promising a fair chance of winning at the end of the session.
Having said and done all these, the safest option would be to place two Dozen bets of equal amounts. This would allow you to cover 24 numbers which makes up around 60% of all the numbers on the wheel. It means that chances of losing the bet are only around 35% that is comparatively lower than a Column bet or Colored bet. If the winning number falls in any of these 24 numbers, then the player will get three credits for the wagered two credits.
