FAQ = Frequently Asked Questions
Online Casino Golden Palace is happy to answer your frequently asked questions about online casino roulette.
The FAQs asked and answered here are only a few of the many that can be asked, but they provide a general feeling for issues that may come up regarding online casino roulette gambling at Online Casino Golden Palace.
Is there a difference between betting on a combination of numbers and betting on the same numbers individually?
If you bet $4 on a split bet that covers four numbers, your expected outcome is equivalent to betting $1 each on the four numbers you're covering.
Splitting your bet over the numbers is only beneficial because it is convenient, and it allows you to place multiple small bets if you wish to.
If one color has been coming up a lot, are my odds better by betting with it or against it on the next round?
Your odds do not change regardless of whether you choose to bet with the color or against it. Roulette is a game of independent events, where one spin has no effect on the outcome of any other spin.
The chance of hitting red or black on any given spin is always a consistent number.
This is sometimes difficult to believe, because we have likely all experienced runs of red or black numbers on an online casino roulette wheel.
Statistically though, it is not unlikely for such a run to occur; in fact there is an expectancy to it. Runs of red or black numbers are just as likely as runs with alternating colors.
Can you beat the house by starting with a table minimum bet on an even-money spot, then doubling-up after every loss and returning to the lowest level when you win?
This is commonly referred to as the “Martingale” betting system, and has been discussed at length in many forums of gambling discussion. The flaw in the system revolves around upper table limits while playing online casinos roulette.
If you happen to start into a losing pattern where you are doubling your bet each time, the amount you are betting after a few short losses in a row grows rapidly. Eventually you reach the upper table limit and can no longer recover all of your losses with a win on the next spin.
If an online casino roulette player is unlucky enough to lose a number of times in a row, the potential losses are usually seen to greatly outweigh the potential wins.
