Roulette is the popular game played in casinos. In roulette, there is a wheel with slots which is spun. The wheel is designed depending on the type of Roulette. The popular variations are French roulette and American roulette. The player place bet on the layout which is the betting area, bets can be placed on the single number or range of numbers, it can also be placed on the colours red or black or even in some cases whether the number is odd or even and the outcome is found as the ball that rolls on the wheel stops.
What is column bet?
The column bet is when the player bets on the column of the roulette layout. The player can bet on any column of the area, there is no such restriction, but most players choose the columns which have their last numbers for example if your last number is 35 then the column with number 35 can be your first bet.
The numbers in the columns of the roulette layouts are,
First column: 1, 4, 7, 10, 13, 16, 19, 22, 25, 28, 31, 34
Second column: 2, 5, 8, 11, 14, 17, 20, 23, 26, 29, 32, 35
Third column: 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30, 33, 36
How to play column bet?
It is not as difficult as it sounds. When you go for a column bet you choose a column from the three, there is no such reason or specification of which column to choose, you can choose any column and then you spin the wheel and if the number from the column that you had chosen appears then you win the bet. When you lose the bet you raise the next bet by 2 unit and if you win you lower the bet by 2 unit. The player continues to bet till the zero units. If you lose at 4 unit and do not add anything after that then you win 8 dollars and if you add something and play for 5 unit then, in that case, your win will be 10 dollars.
What the chances for the players who choose column bets to win? Well then the chances of winning the column bet are 32.43% on a European table and 31.58% on the American table. In some cases, players have increased their chances of winning by adapting the martingale system. The martingale system says that the player needs to choose one column and stick with for the rest of the time where the player plays column bet. In the martingale system, you cannot change the column after every bet. If the player wins the bet then he matches it with the units and if he loses the bet then the next bet is doubled. The martingale system works in casinos only if they impose the maximum bet. So what tends to happen is unless massive luck exists the player’s losses compensates his wins. The best strategy for a beginner placing column bets is to first set a financial limit and second not to chase any losses.
There are chances of you not winning every time, but this system of column bet helps you to offset some of your losses and maximise your chances to win by covering a large portion of the wheel and even when you lose your column bet, you have a decent chance of getting your colour to bet back. So it is never a whole and sole loss when you choose column bet.
