While roulette is a game that most of us are familiar with from television and films and the concept and how it works are known by most people, there are still some information that you should be aware of if you are going to play the game online.

The single most important piece of information regarding roulette that every player must understand is that the game is based entirely on chance. There is no way to influence the outcome of the bet. The wheel spins, the ball drops and bounces around before landing in one of the many spaces on the wheel. There is no skill involved whatsoever in the game, it all comes down to luck. Bear this in mind when reading anything which promises to give you tips regarding the game and take any advice you receive with a pinch of salt.

Strategies exist for those players who want to better manage their betting and several of these are explained in greater detail in other sites. It is important to know that these strategies are used for gambling purposes only. Perhaps the most famous of these betting systems is the Martingale system. The idea behind the Martingale system is that when a player makes a losing bet, he doubles up and if he makes a winning bet, he goes back to his original one. Another system, which reverses the Martingale one, is known as the Paroli system. In the Paroli system, you double after every win and return to your original bet after every loss.

As with all gambling, it is important to decide on an amount you are able to lose before you get started. This is your bankroll and this will be all the money you are able to spend, win or lose. Once your bankroll is gone, the game is over. Your bankroll should be an amount that you are able to lose.

One simple tip which can have an effect on your chances of winning at roulette is choosing between the American or the European variations. The key difference is the 00 number that is added to the American wheel. While it may be one extra number, it slightly decreases your chances of winning so, statistically, however slight it might be, you have a better chance of winning with European roulette.
