Roulette may look like a very simple game in a casino but it may surprise you to know that among all of the games hosted in a casino or online gambling site, more gambling systems are formulated to try to beat the roulette wheel than any other game.
It is true that an established gambling system will help you gain an advantage when playing roulette but don’t think that there is a system that can guarantee that you will become a multi-millionaire playing roulette in a casino or online gambling site.
A far more realistic goal is to stay ahead in the game even if by a small margin.
One must realize that in a game of chance like roulette, you can never be sure of winning. But employing a system will mean that you can make the losses a little more manageable and grant you a chance to actually win a significant amount of spins. A winning system should be one that has a good strategy that will allow you to win and concurrently keep you ahead for the duration of your game.
Based on the experience of professional gamblers and gambling systems makers, roulette systems in which the foundation is on sequential or conditional probability does not work in real-world applications giving very inconsistent results. The reason for this is that roulette is not a game of probability.
It must be pointed out that each spin of the roulette wheel is considered a new spin and the outcome cannot be predicted by any of the previous spins — the same applies to online roulette games. What this means is that the chance of a particular result in each roulette spin remains the same and a probability advantage cannot possibly be formulated.
Even after nine successive roulette results of black there is still no higher probability that the next result will be Red. As gambling systems experts reveal, a roulette wheel does not have a memory nor does it keep a record of the prior results of past roulette spins. It is a “popular” fallacy for gamblers to think that probability plays a big role in establishing or following a system in playing roulette.
Of course, in theory, roulette is perceived as a game of probability. With the casino advantage of 5.26 per cent for American roulette (2.7 per cent for European roulette) it is believed that ultimately players are sure losers. But in practice, players actually think of roulette as a game of chance and thus they have a good chance of actually winning.
For example, if I decided to bet $3 on Red for 40 spins on an American roulette wheel, the theory would be that I will alternately win and lose every other spin and that after the total spins, I will lose $6 for two times the zero outcome.
But in actual real-world practice, during the total number of hours you will play the 40 spins, you will, depending on your luck be up or down by more than $6 and making a decision of when to stop playing roulette will ultimately determine how much you will win or lose.
