Online Roulette:

One of the tactics that some online gamblers use to good effect at the roulette wheel is to look for streaks.
Theoretically, of course, any one of the 37 (including zero) numbers can come up one any spin, so there’s no way of predicting where you should place your chips.

But you’d be surprised how many times, if you play for long enough, certain patterns start to emerge. One thing you’ve no doubt experienced yourself in an “offline” casino is the phenomenon of the repeat winner. Let’s say you’ve covered 14 and 16, but 15 comes up. You’re frustrated, but it happens. Next spin, you cover your lucky numbers of 14 and 16 once again. And guess what? Fifteen…

As a long-term strategy, it’s not a bad option to place a chip on the number that’s just won. The next time, it’ll be someone else who has covered 14 and 16, and you’ll be the one smiling. Online, you’ll be able to see what numbers have come up, and it’s a good idea to keep a note of them. The display on screen will probably show the last dozen or so winning numbers, then they will disappear off the screen. Make a note of the numbers, and you’ll see that there are streaks that occur. Statistically, for example, red and black should come up 50 per cent of the time each – give or take a little bit to allow for the zero. But you’ll often see that there are five or six red numbers that win in a row, say, or that even numbers come up seven successive times.

You can take two views on this. On the one hand, you might think that if six blacks have won in a row, it’s a great idea to put a few chips on red – just has to happen, right?

On the other hand, there are many people who love riding streaks. As soon as there have been three or four black winners in a row, they will be placing their chips on black and seeing just how long this statistical oddity lasts.

If you fancy something different when you’re playing roulette, you could go European and get involved in announced bets.
Maybe you’ve stood round a roulette table and heard people say strange words to the croupiers like “voisins” or “tiers” and wondered what on earth was going on?

Those players were using a European system to cover certain numbers that correspond to areas of the roulette wheel.
Most players fall into two categories: those who use “lucky” numbers or random ones.
The third category is when a player picks a sector of the wheel where he thinks the ball will land, and there are several options.

These are commonly known as “French bets”, and most casinos offer them. Voisins (called Grand Voisins du Zero in full) covers the 17 numbers lying between 22 and 25 on the wheel, including those two numbers.
Rather than placing 17 separate single bets covering those numbers, a player bets nine chips (or multiples of nine). The croupier will place the chips on the following: two chips on the 0,2,3 trio; 1 on the 4/7 split, one on 12/15, one on 18/21, one on 19/22, two on the 25/26/28/29 corner and one on 32/35.

Another bet, the “zero spiel” covers the numbers closest to zero. They are zero itself and 12, 35, 3, 26, 32 and 15.
This is a popular bet in Europe, and many gamblers who believe the ball gravitates towards the zero section will be tempted by it. It involves four chips (or multiples) and covers the 0/3 split, 12/15 split, 26 straight up and the 32/35 split.
The opposite of this is the tiers bet (literally le tiers du cylinder or “third of the wheel”). These are the 12 numbers which are on the opposite side of the wheel between 27 and 33.


This is the most popular of the announced bets in British casinos, and consists of six chips or multiples thereof. The chips are placed on the splits of 5/8, 10/11, 13/16, 23/24, 27/30 and 33/36.
