Representational Image

Roulette has been around since the late 1700s in some shape or form, before a combined effort between the French and Italians eventually saw it become one of the most popular games ever to hit casinos across the world. Nowadays it can be played anywhere, even online through online Roulette and Live Roulette (where you and several others are broadcasted a live wheel spinning somewhere in the world in real time).
Despite its rampant popularity, however, Roulette can also be one of the least forgiving games around. Put it this way; you do not really want to be making many errors whilst playing Roulette, and it can be surprisingly easy to do so. Never fear though, we are on hand to help you with this, so read on for a few of the most common errors to avoid whilst indulging in a bit of Roulette.
Stay Away From American Roulette

Okay look, we don’t want to be badmouthing are transatlantic neighbours here, but American Roulette is actually a lot worse for the gambler than its European counterpart. This is largely because of one simple reason – there is an extra 0 on the American wheel, something that in turn decreases the odds in relation to the European one.
And you know what that means don’t you? You are a lot less likely to make a win on the American version of Roulette than the European one. So there you have it, one of the most common errors in the game of Roulette is simply choosing the wrong version. And of course, at the end of the day this is all down to personal preference as well, however one thing you cannot deny are the worst odds associated with American Roulette.
Keeping The Same Bet

Something that many beginners fall into when playing Roulette for the first time is sticking with one “lucky number” and betting on it consistently. Yes, at some point probability dictates that you will eventually land a win with this method, but at what cost would it have come? You could lose 50 wheel spins before you win, and even then that would only be a fraction of your overall money back.
Another problem with keeping the same bet on a number is that there are different pay-outs relating to different kinds of bets. In particular the distinction between Inside and Outside bets, with the latter paying less but giving a better chance of a win. What you really want to be doing is mixing up your bets on each round, not keeping them constantly the same.

Getting Carried Away

Roulette is one of the most popular games in casino for a reason – it is incredibly exciting. This can come at somewhat of a cost, however, because the more exciting a game the easier it is to get carried away. “Just one more spin” is a common refrain whilst playing Roulette, but just think about what it could do to your bank account.
In fact, many beginners do not play Roulette again after their first time, simply because they do not have the money to do so!
