Most online casino players will play roulette at some point, whether that is because they enjoy playing the game or it could be that they have received a reload offer which invites them to try their luck at online roulette with some free chips.
I sometimes play online roulette without a bonus for the sole reason that I enjoy playing the game, if lady luck is on your side, it is not unusual to see your winnings accumulate over a relatively short period of time.
Before we look at 5 reasons why you should play roulette online, please allow me to start with a warning.
The Martingale system!
If I had a pound for every person who has told me that they have found a sure-fire way to win money playing online roulette using the Martingale system, I would be a rich man.
The only problem is, by using this system you can basically end up going broke, so let me explain to you how it works.
Let’s say you have a target of making £10 per day from playing online roulette.
Not a great deal of money but a nice £300 per month.
You place a £10 bet on red, if the bet wins you have made your £10 and that’s you finished for the day, not bad for a few seconds of ‘work’.
If the bet loses, no problem, just place a £20 bet on red again, if it wins, you have won back the initial £10 which you lost on the first spin along with winning your £10 target for the day.
Do you get the picture?
Before long, you are placing a bet of a few hundred quid just to get back your losses along with your target of £10 for the day.
If you point this fact out to whoever is explaining this system to you, the usual response it that it is very rare for the ball to land on the same colour enough times for you to incur big losses.
I have played roulette on more than one occasion and witnessed the ball land on the same colour ten times or more.
If anyone as much as mentions the Martingale system to you, do yourself a favour and run a mile.
OK, now I’ve got that of my chest, let’s look at why you should play online roulette.
5 reasons why you should consider playing live roulette online
1. Even though it is more or less impossible to find an online casino which will allow wagering requirements on roulette to count towards a welcome bonus, you will find that some reload bonuses involve roulette in some way.
Casumo casino for example sometimes offer free chips if you spend £10 on roulette with other casinos such as Mr Play Casino and Casino Gods having similar deals.
2. As mentioned earlier, roulette is an enjoyable game to play, and it is more than possible to win without a bonus.
I enjoy playing with 50p chips and covering several different numbers, but it would be fair to say that everyone has their own favourite way of playing.
3. The rule of the various forms of roulette are very easy to understand so there is no learning curve involved, what you see is what you get.
4. Roulette is one of the games which is usually included as a live dealer game.
If you have never played live dealer games before, especially roulette, you are in for a real treat as the croupier is talking and spinning the wheel in real time which really adds to the enjoyment of the game.
You will also find that online casino sometimes offer bonuses which can be played on the live dealer games.
Bear in mind that the t and c’s of these bonuses don’t allow you to cover over a certain percentage of the numbers with your bets.
5. Just as with a roulette wheel at your local offline casino, wherever the ball lands is completely random which means that you don’t have to worry about anything untoward going on.
I know this is common knowledge, but I thought I’d better mention it just in case anyone was wondering.
Know your limits
Just as with any online casino game, it is always a good idea to know when you are going to call it a day, whether that is after winning a certain amount or losing.
Even though roulette doesn’t have the background soundtracks and flashing lights of slot games, it can still be addictive, and it is easy to carry on playing for longer than you initially intended.
As long as you keep within your limits and enjoy your roulette playing experience, it is a game which will bring you lots of entertainment but please remember…
Stay away from Martingale system!!
