Roulette is a game played by one to seven individuals. Bets are placed by positioning chips on a certain number that they would want to win. These chips are only for roulette and can not be used for any other game. Each player have a different color of chips, in order for the dealer to recognize who the chip belongs to, making it easier for him to do the payouts later. With this, a rule is set that hands are to be kept out of the table as soon as all the betting is done. The dealer then, spins the wheel.

Here are betting strategies to help you a winner at roulette:
- “Martingdale” is a betting strategy that is the most used by players. This works in such a way that a player begins with a fixed bet, which is doubled when a player loses. The doubling of the money continues until such time that one wins a hand. With this, one automatically gain all loses. One thus begins again, with a fixed bet.
- “reverse Martingdale” is a betting strategy which is basically has the same concept as the “Martingdale” betting technique but is a reversal of such strategy.
- “Progressive Betting”. This is applied in such a way that a player begins with a fixed initial bet, and every time one wins the bet, he increases the present bet by that initial amount. Whereas each time a player loses, the bet will be, betting the current amount but the initial fixed bet is taken away. This works well since as long as a player is winning continuously, the bet is also raising in such a pattern. If a player is losing, the bet will be also in a descending pattern.
- “D’Alembert” Raising ones bet according to a fixed amount when losing and lowering the bet when winning.
- “Reverse D’Alembert” works the same as D’Alembert type of betting, but a reversed method.
