Roulette Strategy

There are more gambling systems devised to beat the roulette wheel than any other game.

A system may give you an edge, but don’t expect to systematically play your way to riches off the casinos. For one thing, everything considered, it is a very difficult task. For another thing, it’s unlikely that the casinos will sit back and do nothing about it.

Simply aiming to win and stay ahead at all times as a primary objective, even by a small margin, is a more realistic goal and a great achievement. In a game of chance using a system is no guarantee of winning, but a well-devised roulette system can streamline your losses, control your winnings and have a strategy that will give you an opportunity to be a winner.

Which outcome has a higher probability after eight successive Blacks, Black again or Red?
The probable answer is Red.
Wrong! After eight successive Blacks, a Black is as likely to come up as a Red. The roulette wheel has no memory and it does not keep the record of previous results. This is what many gamblers find hard to believe. This misconception has been around for many years and will probably be around for as many more years. It is known as the gambler’s fallacy.

In theory, roulette may be looked at as a game of probability and that the casino advantage of 5.26% with a double zero wheel (2.7% with a single zero wheel) makes the player a definite loser. In practice, as far as the player is concerned, roulette is a game of luck and the player has a chance to win.

If you were to bet $5 on Black for 38 spins on a double zero wheel, in theory you would win and lose every other spin and after 38 spins (which is about an hour of play at a busy roulette table) you would lose $10 for twice the zero outcomes.

In practice, during an hour of play, at some stage, if you were lucky you would be up and if you were unlucky you would be down by more than $10, and deciding when to quit will determine a number of your winnings or losses.

Consider this:
If there was no casino advantage and you were paid 37 to 1 (36 to 1 for a single zero wheel) instead of 35 to 1 on numbers and didn’t lose on the outside bets when the outcome was zero, during the past several times that you have played the roulette, would you now be even with your money? Chances are it would not make much difference. You would still be either winning or losing and by much more than 5.26%.

The reason is that at roulette by far the two major factors that determine how much you win or lose are:
1.Your luck on the day
2.Deciding when is the best time to quit.

Therefore, for a roulette system to have a degree of success it has to be linked to luck and tell you exactly when to quit.

No system tester has ever produced a conclusive positive result for a roulette system – not once. That’s because the luck factor will always be missing. If you devise your own system, try it out for real in actual play and don’t rely on collected lists of decisions. The free online and off-line casino games are used to carry out preliminary tests. Remember, luck cannot be quantified or spread evenly and recorded lists of decisions will never reoccur again in that order. The probability of a sequence of just four numbers coming up again in the same order is 1/38 x 1/38 x 1/38 x 1/38 = 1/2,085,136. That’s one in two million. If your priority is to play for pleasure, probably any system will do. If you aim to win to stay ahead at all times as a primary objective, then “Gambler’s Luck” roulette system is the answer.
