Here’s an interesting, relatively conservative, “slow and steady” betting strategy to try out with No-Zero Roulette at BlockStamp Games!

We call it “slow and steady” because you won’t get big payoffs here. In fact, you can expect to lose! But you’re also expecting to win at the same time — and come out ahead when you do.

With this roulette betting strategy, you’re going to be placing bets on the dozens of numbers, i.e. the first dozen (1–12), the second dozen (13–24), or the third dozen (14–36).

If the ball lands on any number within the dozen you bet on, you win. At BlockStamp Games, your odds of winning a bet on a single dozen is an even 12 / 36, or 1 / 3.

A win in a given dozen pays out 2:1 odds, i.e. if you bet 10 BST on the first dozen, you’ll get back your 10 BST plus 20 BST more, for a total of 30 BST coming back to you.

If you lose, you lose the 10 BST you put down.

But things get more interesting when you bet on two dozens simultaneously.

Make two simultaneous bets on two dozen raises your odds of a win to 24 / 36 or 2 / 3.

Nice, huh?

But note that when you win one of these bets, you will obviously lose the other one… but still come out ahead overall.

Here’s an example:

Let’s say you bet 10 BST on the first dozen and 10 BST on the second dozen, and the roulette ball lands on the number 15.

You winning bet (on the second dozen) is going to give you back your original 10 BST and .

Your losing bet (on the first dozen) is going to .

That’s why we think of it as taking one step and two steps forward.

Not bad!

Just don’t forget that you also have 1 / 3 chance of losing 20 BST. Fair is fair!

But don’t try it on roulette wheel with a zero!

When there’s a zero on the wheel, it means betting on a dozen gives you a 12 / 37 chance of winning, or slightly less than 1 / 3. That small difference is going to chip away at your winnings over time. That zero is there to make you lose!

And if there are two zeroes, well even worse.

That’s why No-Zero Roulette at BlockStamp Games…. doesn’t have a zero, obviously!

Straight up odds and what you see is what you get!

It’s perfect for trying out this two dozen strategy. Let us know how you do!
