Not literally, of course; if you wanted this type of advice, you’d either be attending a Gambler’s Anonymous meeting or poring over the issue with a hyper-religious relative. Instead, you are reading a publication with gambling content provided by www.ufabet and the title of this article caught your eye, so I assume that you want some advice that can actually help you protect your bankroll at the roulette table.
The first thing you probably noticed is that this is about saving money at roulette, not winning. Due to the casinos’ vig—which comes from them paying off less than your expected odds—you are technically losing money each time you place a bet on the board (although the red and black wagers on a roulette table do offer one of the best player percentages at the casino). There is only one proven way to win money at roulette – get lucky on your first bet, walk away, and never come back.
Unfortunately, many people would find this method unsatisfying for two reasons. For one, it is predicated on an awfully large amount of luck and therefore rather unlikely to happen. Two, gambling is oftentimes more about entertainment than it is about winning money, and a “one and done” deal would fail to satisfy this desire. With this in mind, let’s look at how you can extend your time at the roulette table without frequent trips to the ATM.
The key to my money-saving technique is “covering” your bets, which usually results in a series of small losses with a large win occasionally tossed in for good measure. You start by setting an amount for a fixed bet; this amount is the maximum you are willing to lose on one spin of the wheel. Then, half of this bet is apportioned to either red or black, another 30% goes onto a 2-1 proposition and the final 20% is spent on covering several numbers. For example, let’s say that you want to bet $10 on each spin – you would place $5 on one of the colors, $3 on one of the columns or the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd twelve boxes, and $2 on anything from individual numbers up to rows of three (I find that it often works best to divide this amount into two $1 bets). If your color comes in, you win your entire bet back; if one of the columns comes in, you only lose $1; and on the rare occasion you actually hit one of your numbers, you actually get a nice boost to your bankroll that should at least cover your losses for a while longer if it doesn’t put you ahead outright. It should also be noted that it is possible to win a combination of bets at once, which also helps you out in the win column. I find that this technique works best on the automated-betting Rapid Roulette game that can now be found in many casinos, but for those with higher bankrolls, it can work just as well on standard tables.
