One method that is popular in roulette with operators such as maria.com when it comes to selecting individual numbers is to choose a sector of the wheel to play with.
Before you place your chips on the table you will need to carefully analyse the wheel and highlight an area of interest. For example, you may decide you would like to play around the number 0. If this is the case, you would write down all the numbers that neighbour green 0, both to the left and right.
The good thing about playing a section of the wheel is that if you see the ball dropping into this zone, you know there is a very strong chance you are going to be a winner. It also avoids the disappointment of the ball landing next door to your favourite number.
Once you decide on your area, you then need to consider how many numbers you would like to play. This is the most important decision you have to make because you somehow have to come up with a balance between choosing enough numbers to give yourself a good chance of winning and keeping your total stake down. If you choose too big of a sector, you are reducing your potential profit because your cost will be high. It is normally advised not to go beyond eight numbers on the table when you spin the wheel.
Like all methods for choosing your numbers, unfortunately sector betting doesn’t give you an edge in the game. The odds of winning still remain exactly the same. There will be days where it will work really well and others with little success.
