Don't think you need a 'system' to play roulette - roulette is a game of chance and you can't beat the game with a magical mathematical formula. There is no such thing as a biased game, and the casinos are watching their dealers like a hawk for any signs of corruption. Develop the best roulette strategy for you, forget about systems.
The best roulette strategy to improve your odds is to look for European or French roulette.
Find tables that allow the En prison rule or the La partage rule. These rules reduce the house edge by 50% on even-money bets.
Find a game that offers the surrender rule. The surrender rule gives players slightly better overall odds on the American roulette.
Start out with even money bets, such as red/black or low/high bets. Straight up bets may allure you with their 35/1 payouts, but you'll probably lose your stack of money before hitting one.
Never bet the five number bet, it has the worst odds on the table.
Always take into account the two major factors that determine how much you win or lose at roulette are: 1) your luck on the day and 2) deciding when is the best time to quit.
Don't let your brain scam you into thinking that the roulette wheel has a memory. The outcome of any given spin is completely independent of the previous spins.
Always manage your money. Don't blow it all in one bet, split your money into smaller chunks so that you can last a longer amount of time and have more fun. Decrease your bets when you are on a losing streak, and increase your bets when you are winning.
In roulette playing with patience and discipline eliminates the need to make large bets to recover previous losses.
Try to win more money with fewer spins.
Statistically speaking, previous outcomes are no indication of future outcomes. Each and every spin holds the exact same probability (odds) for an outcome. However, if you're one to believe that previous outcomes indicate probable future outcomes, bet with the flow, otherwise known as streaks. Just remember that over the long haul, probability rules.
Above all, have fun. Roulette is a social game, so put on your suit, get some free drinks and have a good time at the table.
