In roulette, if you play without having a smidget of a strategy or system, then you can be assured that your money will disappear before your very eyes faster than you can say “roulette.” The basic principle in playing roulette is that you need to start with a plan. If there is no plan, then expect it to be chaotic, nit just in the way you will play, but also in how you make decisions and place bets.Overall, a roulette game without a plan can ruin you forever. Thus, let’s get you started on a few basic roulette strategies.Have some form of bankroll management. This means that you have money, and plan to play a roulette game or two using this money. However, it does not stop there. You have to take it a notch higher.Managing your money means having decisions on how much you plan to lose, and also a decision on how much you would like to win before calling it a day. Let’s break it down for you in a simpler way. Let’s suppose you have $300 that you want to play around with. Based on this $300, how much would you be willing to lose. Let’s suppose you decide on $200. When you get to that point where you lost $200, then stop.In the same manner, if you decide your winning target is $300, then once you get to $600 (your winnings and your base fund), then stop playing. Forget the taunts and urges for you to play more. These people who do this would not want to be in your shoes, under pressure to play big time. They just want to see a good show. If you fall for their tricks, you end up the loser, and that’s what happened to many others before you, and will continue happening to anyone who’s walking away from a game with winnings tucked under his arm.If you want to be considered as a smart roulette player, you could also take it up a notch by tucking away your little by little the amount of your initial bankroll or fund. If you are starting to win, use your winnings to play more roulette games. When you have managed to raise the original fund you came in with and still have money to play around with, then keep your original fund away, and just play with your winnings. This way, win or lose, you still win because you will be leaving with the same amount you came in with.Now that’s smart bankrolling and an unbeatable roulette strategy. The beauty of doing this is that you beat the system in such a way that you leave with the same amount you came in with. You managed to control yourself, and not be tempted by the thought of greater wins. If you can manage this, you will be displaying well grounded maturity and a sense of responsibility and discipline. For many gamblers who have lost their all to the game, their main problem is not about how they played each bet, but how they managed their money, and how they handled self control.
