Roulette Strategy at All Star Slots

Roulette is a game that's known for being really easy to learn how to play. However, a lot of players mistakenly think that the very basics that they learn are all that the game has to offer. While this is an easy mistake to make, we're here to show you that there's a lot more depth to roulette than you probably realize, and we're going to show you just how deep the rabbit hole goes with this game. It'll require a very minimal amount of math to learn (simple division and the ability to subtract one from a number), but it'll give you a lot more command over this classic.

Game Selection

There are a few different types of roulette out there, and each of them have slightly different rules and table layouts. American roulette has both the green 0 and 00. On the other hand, European and French roulette only have the single 0. There's also a version of roulette available in a few places called mini roulette that uses a single green zero, but it only has the numbers 1-12. Regardless of which type of roulette you choose to play, you should be familiar with the payouts, and we're going to show you exactly how to do that with a simple shortcut.   

Learning the Payouts

One of the problems that people have with learning to play roulette on a deeper level is that there are a lot of payouts to remember, and they're not usually posted up anywhere on the tables. There's a simple way around this, however, and we're going to teach it to you here. You can use this mental shortcut to figure out the payout of any individual wager in European roulette, American roulette or French roulette. You will need a simple adjustment to use it for mini roulette.

Start by figuring out how many spots will win for your bet. Once you know that value, the shortcut is to divide 36 by that number, and then subtract 1. That's all you need to do to find the payout of the game. For a quick example, if you were to make a corner bet on 1, 2, 4 and 5, then what you could do is divide 36 by 4 (since you win on 4 spots) to get 9, and then subtract 1 to get your payout of 8x. It's pretty simple, and it's the one tool you need to get deeper into the game.

For mini roulette, use 12 as your base number instead of 36. That's all you have to do to adjust.

Creating Betting Tiers

One of the most popular strategies in roulette, and this is much easier once you understand the shortcut above, is to create betting tiers. You do this by making two or more wagers that "overlap" in a way that there are more payout tiers than the two typical "win" and "lose" results. For example, you could combine a column bet that pays 2:1 with a bet on red that pays 1:1 to create four different possible results for your bet. This adds a lot more excitement to the game and opens up a whole new degree of depth that most players do not realize is there.
