American Roulette Rules and Strategy

American Roulette is an immensely popular casino game created by Switch Studios for Microgaming that involves a spinning wheel divided into 38 numbered pockets, including numbers 1 to 36, as well as a single zero (0) and a double zero (00) in an online and mobile casino format. The objective of the game is simple: to predict which pocket the ball will land in after the wheel is spun. Players place their bets by selecting chips and “placing” them on the desired areas of the betting table using the device that they are playing on. American Roulette Strategy is straightforward and as such is easy to understand for beginner players.

  • Understand the Odds: Players must familiarise themselves with the odds and payouts associated with different types of bets. Inside bets typically have higher payouts but lower odds of winning, while outside bets offer lower payouts but higher odds.
  • Manage the Bankroll: Set a budget for gameplay and stick to it. Avoid chasing losses and know when to stop playing at all times. It is important to remember that responsible betting is smart betting!
  • Mix Bet Types: Consider combining inside and outside bets to diversify strategy. This approach can provide a good balance between possible high payouts and chances of winning.
  • Practice with Free Games: Before wagering real money, players should use the demo mode to get a better understanding of the game and test which strategies and betting levels best suit them.
  • Play Responsibly: Remember that American Roulette, like all casino games, relies heavily on luck. All players need to set realistic betting and winning expectations and enjoy the game for its entertainment value rather than solely focusing on winning.

Note that American Roulette has a higher house edge compared to European Roulette due to the additional double zero (00) pocket.

American Roulette Betting Expert Techniques

Expert techniques used when playing American Roulette revolve around strategic betting approaches which aim to optimise any potential winnings and manage the risk of loss. Below are a few popular betting techniques utilised by experienced American Roulette players:

Martingale System: This involves doubling a bet after each loss. The idea is that eventually, a win will occur, and it will recover previous losses while generating a small profit. However, this technique requires a substantial bankroll to sustain potential losses during losing streaks and is not recommended for the average player.

Fibonacci System: This is based on the Fibonacci sequence, where each number is the sum of the two preceding numbers (e.g., 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, etc.). In this approach, players increase their bets following a loss based on the Fibonacci sequence. If a win occurs, they go back two steps in the sequence. This technique aims to recoup losses gradually and protect bankrolls.

Labouchere System: Also known as the cancellation system, this involves creating a sequence of numbers that represents the desired winnings. Each bet consists of the sum of the first and last numbers in the sequence. If the bet wins, those numbers are crossed off the sequence. If the bet loses, the sum of the bet amount is added to the end of the sequence. The goal is to cross off all numbers in the sequence, resulting in the desired profit.

D'Alembert System: This is a more conservative approach to Roulette betting and involves increasing the bet by one unit after a loss and decreasing it by one unit after a win. The idea is to balance out losses and wins over time, gradually making a profit.

Sector Betting: This technique involves betting on specific sectors of the roulette wheel, such as betting on a range of numbers or sections of the wheel (e.g., betting on all the black numbers or the first 12 numbers). Sector betting provides broader coverage and slightly higher odds of winning, albeit with lower payouts.
