7 Tips on How to Win at Roulette
Few casino games give you that glamorous feel like roulette. For decades, it’s been a staple of casinos from Las Vegas to Devol, Oklahoma and everywhere in between. But don’t let its glitzy reputation fool you. The game of roulette is incredibly easy to learn, play — and yes, win.
Here at Kiowa Casino & Hotel, high rollers and beginners alike adore playing this high-excitement table game. The premise is simple. Place a bet on what number you wager the ball will whir around the wheel and land on. If the ball lands on the space you placed your chips, it’s payday, baby. Easy as that.
If you’re wondering how to win at roulette, casinos in Oklahoma are a great place to give it a go. And if you’re reading this, you already know that playing smart has its perks. Here are seven lucky tips to up your odds of a roulette win next time you find yourself at Kiowa Casino.
1. Learn the Game Before You Play
This advice goes for any casino game. Before placing your first bet, make sure you understand the basics of how to play roulette. Though the game is simple, knowing what you’re doing can be the difference between a big payout and an aching wallet.
Every game begins by placing your chips on a space on the roulette table, either on the inside or the outside. Outside bets win more often at lower payouts, but the riskier inside bets have higher rewards. After the dealer has closed the window for bets, the wheel is spun and the ball lands where it may. If you’re lucky, it might land where you wagered.
For beginners, it’s a good idea to start at the table minimum and focus on playing the outside bets until you get the hang of things. At Kiowa, the minimum bet for both inside and outside spaces is $5, but players can spread the $5 out on multiple numbers for inside bets. If you have questions while playing, no worries. Our friendly dealers are always happy to teach you a thing or two.
2. Diversify Your Bets
The game of roulette is a game of luck, so it’s a good idea to play the field.
Since no two spins are usually alike, sticking only to a lucky number or a number that has paid out before isn’t always the best decision. Don’t be afraid to switch up where you place your bet on the table with each spin. To get the most for your money, also consider spreading your bet across a few numbers, both inside and outside. This will give you a better chance of winning and make the game much more enjoyable and long-lasting.
3. Stick to Your Bankroll
The excitement of roulette can make it tricky to leave the table, especially if you have a lucky spin or two. But knowing when to take your chips and cash out can save you the stress. Before you join the table, decide on a budget and don’t exceed it.
A good rule of thumb: if you can’t afford to lose it, don’t bet it.
4. Try a Roulette Strategy
Though roulette is a game of a chance, having a strategy can increase your frequency of wins. Some of the best roulette strategies include the Martingale Betting Strategy, the D’Alembert Betting Strategy, the James Bond Betting Strategy, and the All-In Strategy.
At the end of the day, how you choose to play is your choice. No matter which strategy you go with — if you go with any — make sure it’s one that works for you, your risk comfort, and your budget.
5. Bet on Red or Black
If you want a better chance of winning, go where the odds are highest. In roulette, that’s the red and black spaces.
Kiowa Casino’s wheels are American roulette wheels with 18 black spaces and 18 red spaces. These spaces yield a 1:1 payout, meaning if you bet $5 and win, you’ll take home $5. If you’re a beginner, betting red and black gives you more of a chance to learn how the game works while you play. Red or black roulette strategy is go-to for experienced players too, as the odds of leaving with cash in hand are higher.
Not looking to risk it? Leave the green spaces to high rollers. Though the payouts are much higher (35:1), the odds of winning on green are substantially less and could lead to busting your budget quicker than you meant.
6. Play to Have Fun
When you’re playing roulette at an Oklahoma casino, always remember that fun is the whole point. No matter how prepared or particular you play, the roulette ball will always land where it wants. You cannot, and will not, win every time you play a game of chance.
If you ever find yourself feeling angry or stressed at the roulette table, it’s a good idea to cash out and step away. Watching some football over a bite at the Winners Circle Cafe or going for a quick nap in your Kiowa Hotel room are great ways to wind down and try again later.
7. Pick a Great Place to Play
