The number 32 is one of those pleasing symmetrical numbers, isn’t it? You can divide by 2, 4, 8 and 16. On the roulette wheel, it’s a red number that sits right next to 0 on a European Roulette table (and next to 15). And on an American wheel, you’ll find the number 32 in between black 17 and black 20.
It’s the 5th power of 2 – that’s why you’ll be used to seeing this number around computers which think in binary. So you’ll see Windows 32, 32 GB storage, and so on.
It also happens to be the name of one of the most roulette friendly sites out there: 32red Casino. The casino is named after the roulette number, of course. But why? We don’t know! We’re going to ask 32Red, maybe it’s Ed Ware’s lucky number- he’s the CEO.
The number 32 is also a Happy Number. Yes, really! It’s the ninth happy number. Other happy numbers on the roulette wheel are:
1, 7, 10, 13, 19, 23, 28 and 31.
What’s the definition if a happy number? Well, it hasn’t got a smile you can’t wipe off its face. A happy number is a number which can be replaced by the sum of the squares of its digits (9+4=13), and when this process is repeated (1+9=10) and repeated (1) until you arrive at 1.
If you are unable to get to 1, you started off with an unhappy number.

You can just bet on the individual number, of course, although that is not going to get you much table coverage. Incidentally, if you do want to bet on the single number and improve your odds, you could always do this by betting on the number multiple times- the Makarov system. This is easier than you might think online.
Head to a Multi-Wheel roulette game and just bet on one wheel. Choose the Auto Play option and select, say, 25 spins on turbo mode. Hey presto!

You can also increase the table coverage with any of the Inside Bets like the Split Bet (2), the Street bet (3 numbers) the Square Bet (4), or the Six Number Bet (6).
Or bet on the red for a 1:1 payout, or the even or high numbers (19-36).
You can also cover 32 on the third dozen or the middle column bet. Both wagers pay out at 2:1, plus you get your original bet back of course.
