A couple of days ago I won $5 roulette bonus on the 888 wheel.Roulette is not really a game I enjoy so instead of just wasting the bonus I thought why not get some tips on the best way to use it.
I think the bonus has a playthrough of 2.5 status points per $1 so quite high.
Should I just pick 5 numbers at $1 each and hope one hits in 1 spin or is there a more tactical way to do this.? Smile

The bonus must be wagered Dollar 200 35-1 if hits on the number. Only way by building this bonus slowly is by betting on black or red odd even 2-1 odds on 1-12 13-24 25-36. A system can work also the same 5 numbers every spin sometimes the same number hits 2 spins in a row good luck Blink

well you will need some luck here, not sure what the min stake is, but what you should be doing is covering at least half of numbers (odd/even, red/black, 1-18/19/36) or a couple of columns with the min stake and hope that you will not lose your fiver too quickly. no skill required, only luck. if $200 must be wagered before a cashout, then not much hope to make anything in the long run. with 2.7% house edge you will be losing 2.7 cents on average on every $1 bet, so after you wager $200 you can expect to lose $5.40.

best of luck at the tables,under the tables and in between the tables.

Online roulette is rigged and probably tricky not worth even if it's free money as with the wagering stuff it's quite impossible...

...It is rigged, but only in the same way a real roulette wheel is rigged.

Basically Klash, you'll be very lucky to clear the bonus and have anything left... If you were to bet $2.50 red, $2.50 black each time... you would have to dodge 0 forty times in a row to clear the bonus... Which is roughly a 25-30% chance. Your best bet is to try and get lucky betting $1 each on 5 separate numbers to begin with...

Thanks guys....as I figured. Smile
I think minimum stake is $1 a spin,the wagering is quite high and to be honest the thought of slowly building up a stack and then just getting unlucky and losing it all sounds really annoying,so I will just go for it in the first couple of spins and see how it goes. Smile

Not much you can do with 5$ only in roulette. You will need to be extremely lucky.
Depending on the minimum bet, pick a couple of numbers and go all in for it.
Not much to think of here Smile Good luck with it.

My advice would be that you should not play roulette. Or any other game where the house has this much edge. But since this was a token, just wait two or three dozen numbers without staking and try to catch the next time when the zero is going to be rolled out.
tl;dr = just put the bonus one by one on zero after a couple long zeroless series

Yeah, I guess drinking has an effect on the enjoyment of things. Next time you will be luckier. Thumbs Up

Roulette has a fairly high house edge. So just grinding through a wagering requirement is usualy not a good idea. Put your bonus money on one or a few numbers, and hope for the best. Most of the time, it will be over fast, but if you should hit, you should be able to switch to grinding it out for the rest of the wagering.

a few mobbit dudes say that roulette has a high house edge... really? do you think that 2.7% (single zero) is a big house edge? what about poker then- you get similar percentages only when playing hyper turbo's or anything similar with two chip stack on offer. usual rake is 5-10% and yet people think that 2.7% on roulette is big?

When you have a wagering requirement of 40x to 60x, that is quite common nowadays, of cause a house edge of 2.7% is huge. Just do the math. Good games have a house edge of less than 1%, or maybe slightly above.

I think the main problem with this bonus was that the min bet was $1 a bet so couldn't even spread the betting around with only $5.Next time I will just put the whole $5 on one number and hope for the best. Smile

The famous "Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo" was an English engineer, Charles Jagger, who discovered a biased wheel.
Jagger and his associates recorded all the numbers that came up on the wheels at the Beaux-Arts Casino Monte Carlo for several days in 1873. Jagger waded through the statistics until he found a bias on one wheel. Over several days, he continually played the biased numbers, along with others to throw casino personnel off the track. Jagger won more than $400,000.
Finally the casino discovered that the bias was caused by the frets, or walls, between numbers. The problem was corrected, and Jagger began to lose, but still left Monte Carlo, never to return, with more than $300,000 Dollar Dollar Dollar

You compare apples with oranges here based on that both of them are fruit.

fair point. lets compare casino games with casino games- sure there are casino games with lower house edge BUT all of those require you to play "perfect strategy" in one way or another (blackjack, baccarat, video poker, a few bets on craps. crap craps sounds so cool) meanwhile roulette can be played by a drunk monkey (maybe that's the reason i'm advocating for it) without any impact on house edge.

i put all $5 on one bet i won $about 7 on first spin and then it give me the $5 to play any game i wanted after that. i did $2 red/black and $1 2nd 3rd. so i would say play safe on first $5 because you can only win a max of $5

I really do not know much about roullette and this has a a reason: roullette is a pure game of luck and has absolutely nothing to do with skill. So if you like and are willing to gamble then play, but if not the best tip from me is: do not play!
