As mentioned earlier (Game Systems), there is no mathematically grounded system that allows you to consistently win at roulette. This is a gamble, a game of chances, of luck, and the theory of probability will not help you here.
Do not trust people who claim to have mastered the magic of numbers and know how to win day by day. Breshut, dogs. There are other options as well:
- They are crooks
- They are crazy
- They are crazy crooks
Einstein seems to have said that: “The only way to consistently win at roulette is to steal money from the table.”
All we can do, using Probability Theory, is to calculate the probability of each outcome and the mathematical expectation, otherwise the casino advantage.
And the only working system that allows you to consistently make money on roulette was invented back in the 19th century and is still successfully used. It’s very simple – open your own casino and shovel money.
Roulette systems should not be taken seriously. Systems give results in other games – for example, in Blackjack or Video Poker, where by playing based on basic systems (strategies) the player can even gain an advantage over the casino.
Roulette is a game of luck and fun.
But if we reject all systems, what can we suggest for the game?
First of all, in gambling, the outcome mainly depends on LUCK! But it is also useful to know the rules that can improve your chances.
It is the same when playing Roulette, where the best strategy for the game will be the correct choice of the rules by which the game is played.
Play European Roulette!
The advantage of the casino when playing American roulette is 5.26%, in the European version – 2.63%. This is one of the reasons why roulette has not become as popular in America as it is in Europe, where the roulette wheel is a symbol of excitement.
Although recently, with the growth in the number of Internet Casinos, European roulette has become more accessible.
Regarding Russian casinos, they mainly play European roulette, calling it American. The main feature of the game that determines the odds is a wheel with one (European) or two zeros (American).
Avoid betting on five numbers
If the walkie-talkie, as the tank says, and you still prefer the Double Zero Wheel, don’t bet on five numbers. The mathematical expectation here is 7.89% versus 5.26% at other rates.
Look for a roulette wheel with the “En Prison” and “Surrender” (“La Partage”) rules that lower the house edge to 2.63% and 1.35% when betting on even odds.
We now know the best rules. The next step is to determine the size of the bets.
It’s no secret that many players risk more than they can afford. This is either pathology or just nonsense.
If you follow a few simple rules, you can avoid some unpleasant situations and increase your chances of success:
- Before you go to the gaming table, decide how much you are willing to lose.
- It is also reasonable to determine the amount of the win, after which you should stop, and thus save it.
- Determine the size of the bet based on the available cash, and do not exceed it.
- A good option to control your cash supply is to set aside some or all of your winnings. But just not in your pocket – the dealer may misunderstand you.
If you follow these simple rules, you will significantly increase your chances of winning, or at least be able to stay at the gaming table for longer. Or maybe a taxi ride home is enough.
Any strategy implies discipline – if you do not follow the chosen plan, then you simply do not have a plan!
