First and foremost, you need to make sure you understand roulette on a deep level. It may sound obvious, but we have to start at the beginning. Roulette wheels have either 37 or 38 coloured pockets, depending on the type of game you play. Standard French roulette has 37 – 36 numbers and the 0. The American game has a 00 pocket, which is also green.
It therefore makes sense to play European-style roulette over the American game. More green pockets simply increases the house’s chances of winning – negatively affecting your own. Most online casinos will have a decent range of roulette options available to try out. So make sure you are playing one that has 37 potential pockets rather than the American 38. A change in chance from one in 37 to one in 38 may not sound like a lot. But if you are planning to spend a lot of time on virtual roulette, this difference can come into play more than you would think.
Online roulette uses a random number generator, so you do not have to worry about the casino trying things to give them an edge. However, if you prefer to see a human croupier you can also opt to play at a live casino. These are now very common all over the internet.
