In online roulette, you can do something that you cannot do in other online casino games such as slot machine games. You can make multiple bets that all have different levels of risk and different layouts. So each round, you must carefully think where you want to put your money to maximize potential pay outs and minimize risks. It is not a game to play when there are lots of distractions around. You need to play in a controlled area where you can surround yourself with things that will help you maintain calm and avoid distractions. If you own a cat, by all means play with the cat on your lap. Petting the cat while you play will help. When you pet a cat, it naturally relaxes both the mind and the body and helps you focus on the game. This has been proven over and over again by veterans players who are also cat owners. It has to do with chemicals (all natural) released by the brain when you pet a cat. You can simulate the effect by stroking a soft cloth, but it will not produce exactly the same results. You need the live animal to really get the benefit.
