Playing Online Roulette Game – Strategies and Tips

by Olivia Lee

Playing an SG online roulette game is an exciting and challenging experience. You can play for free or wager money. The game’s goal is to predict where the ball will land on the wheel, which has 38 pockets numbered 1-36 and a green pocket numbered 0 (zero). Then, to make your prediction, place bets on one or more numbers you think are likely to come up with chips.

When playing roulette, you have two options:

1) Place your bet before the ball starts spinning

2) Place your bet after it begins to spin

Strategies and Tips

The first option is called “inside” betting because it’s placed before the ball starts spinning. The second option is called “outside” betting because it’s placed after the ball starts spinning.

-After choosing your bet type, choose how many chips to place on each bet – you can play up to 12 bets at once

-Your betting options include:

  • Straight Up (betting that one number will come out)
  • Split Bet (betting that two numbers in a row or column of numbers will come out)
  • Street Bet (the same as split but for three consecutive numbers)

Some other Betting Options

  • Corner Bet (same as a street but for four contiguous corner spaces). You’ll need $20/$40 worth of chips per corner wager if playing with American roulette rules. If playing European Roulette, where there are only one 0 pockets, this is reduced to $15/$30)
  • Line Bet (betting that a group of numbers in the same row will come out). There are three types of line bets: Odd/Even, Red/Black, and High/Low. You’ll need to have at least 30 chips per number bet if playing with American roulette rules or 25 for European Roulette.

-You’re also able to place “outside” betting on more than just single numbers by trying your luck with combinations or permutations. All you have to do is choose how many chips you want to play – typically between 20–25 worth of chips each time – then click on one of these options under outside bets:

o D’Alembert Bet – placed after the ball is released, this bet increases your chances of winning after a loss and decreases them after a win.

o La Partage Bet – also placed after the ball is released; this bet gives you half your stake back if the ball lands in zero (0) during the game.

o Labouchere Betting System – similar to d’Alembert but with increasing stakes that cancel out previous losses until you eventually win something – or until you go bust!


Other less common bets can be made, such as neighbors (betting on two numbers next to each other), basket (covering four numbers with one chip), snake (a zigzag pattern over three rows of numbers), or top line.
