Online slot games may be in the spotlight but many players still flock towards the classic card and table games.  

Games such as roulette have been played for centuries and to this day players still can’t seem to tire of the thrill it brings.  
 

There has been many myths about Roulette, one of the first games of chance, and we’re taking a look at the top 5.
 

Top 5 Online Roulette Myths 
 

Equal House Edge 

One of the first things many players believe is that all online Roulette variants have the same house edge. This is not true. There are different versions of Roulette namely American, French and European Roulette and each offer a different house edge. Of the three variants American Roulette has the highest house edge of up to 5.26% at some casinos as it comes with two 0 green slots. Thanks to the La Partage rule in French Roulette this variant can often offer a lower house edge.  
 

The Variants are the same 

Many players believe that the French Roulette and European Roulette variants are identical apart from having different names. While they might seem identical the big difference lies in the outside betting features. As mentioned above French Roulette offers an outside bet known as La Partage. With this bet you’ll be eligible to get back half the value of your bet if the ball lands on zero.  
 

Predicting which numbers will hit next 

One of the biggest mistakes many Roulette players make is to place their belief in this myth. Roulette is and always will be a game of chance where the outcome is random. Identifying numbers that haven’t hit in a while and are due to hit soon (cold numbers) are a waste of time. There is no order to winning numbers produced in the outcome of the wheel spin. With each spin the odds of any number being hit is 37 if you play a single zero roulette variant. Always keep in mind that Roulette is a game of chance and there is no strategy to increasing your winning probability.  
 

Winning streaks and increased bets  

Another big myth many online casino players believe in when it comes to online roulette is the Winning Streak. First you play and experience a few wins and losses and then all of a sudden you start hitting one win after another. In this time you manage to double, triple or even quadruple your bankroll and for many the first thought is to increase their bets to take advantage of the winning streak. In reality it all comes down to Lady Luck and your next spin could be a loss. Always play at a bet amount that is safe and reasonable. Never chase your wins even if you feel you might be on a winning streak.  
 

Beating the house is possible 

And then there is the big one that will probably remain a myth no matter how many times it has been debunked. Many players believe that there is some way to beat the house edge and achieve an advantage in the long run exactly like the casino has managed to do. Some players believe the trick is to make bets that pay 50/50 and tricks the casino into making balancing bets. The reality is that the casino will always have the advantage over players. Without the house edge online casinos will cease to exist. The only way to decrease the house edge a little is by playing variants that offer a lower house edge. French Roulette is most popular for this thanks to the La Partage and En Prison rules but in the long run you are still at a disadvantage.  

Roulette is and will always be one of the most exciting games of chance offering players thrilling payouts. You can try different variants of online roulette at the top rated online casinos today.
