Make Sure You Pay Attention To The Frets When Playing Roulette Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Share on Tumblr When playing roulette, it’s important to pay attention to the “frets”. The frets are the tiny walls that separate the pockets. Normally, these are “springy” and allow the ball a higher bounce into a further pocket. But, if they are loose, the ball will bounce less and land in certain pockets more frequently. If one can identify these, there is a greater chance of winning! Also, when the wheel isn’t “seated” properly, the ball will land in a certain section more often. By the way, the ball itself is made of ivory or plastic.
