Have You Ever Tried A Half Roll Strategy?

No, this is not some offering from your neighborhood Chinese restaurant. This is all about a wagering strategy you can use today.

First up, a quick review on some betting basics. You know that it doesn’t even matter where you end up; your favorite online casino, the land based casino, whatever, the reality is that in the long run, the House always has the edge.

But you see, that is the trick. Read that again. The House has the edge in the long run. In the short run you could in fact beat the house and walk away with a small fortune. Yet, as you know, virtually every casino works very hard to keep you in place. They know the house advantage will work in its favor time and time again, if you stay put and keep wagering your money.

Here’s an extreme example of how you could play this to your favor. Suppose you log into your favorite online casino and for the purposes of this illustration suppose you wager on a single low-edge even money bet, say a Baccarat hand. Now here is the thing. After the game is over, you walk away. That’s right, win or lose the power in this strategy is to walk away after a single play. That way you are playing your short term advantage to it’s maximum effect.

Now admittedly, that probably won’t be a whole lot of fun. After all, who can realistically play a single game? Okay, that’s true. The point of the above illustration is to demonstrate how you can play against the House Edge and try to tweak it in your favor.

However, you can still use this strategy with the half roll. Half roll means only every wagering one half of your bankroll. Here, you take your bankroll and divide into two equal amounts. Then you make two bets, each with half of your bankroll. The key is that each time you make a wager, you are only ever betting with one half of your bankroll.

There are a couple of ways to play this. You could make only the single wager as outlined above. Then you either win or lose. Alternatively, you could make two wagers. This could result in a break even on the first half of the roll wager followed by a double win or lose all on the second wager.

Obviously this system could be expanded. However, keep in mind the whole point is that the more bets you make, the closer you get to being overwhelmed by the house edge.
