How to Beat Roulette with A Simple 3 Point System
Many players try to beat roulette by buying a "sure fire" roulette system for money. These systems promise consistent gains and to make the buyer rich and beat roulette consistently. Of course, the reality does not match the hype and these systems are ALL doomed to failure.
You can beat roulette, but it does not involve buying a system, more of that later. For now, lets look at why a mathematical roulette system cannot work.
In roulette, each spin of the roulette wheel is totally random. Let's say that the colour red has come up twice in succession. The odds of this number coming up on the next spin are no greater or worse than if the number had not come up in 100, 500 or 1,000 spins previous spins, the odds still remain 50% - 50%.
All spins of the roulette wheel are independent of each other and totally unrelated to the previous spin history. As the outcome of the spin is unrelated to any other, roulette is a game of pure chance.
A mathematical system in roulette that promises consistent gains is a contradiction in terms, because if you have no reliable historical data, mathematical formulas are useless.
In mathematics, you know what is definitely going to happen, in roulette you have the exact opposite you never know what is going to happen!
Your Own Simple 1 - 2 - 3 Roulette System!
For games of chance like roulette, the best a player can do is to wager on bets having the lowest casino advantage and to find the right type of roulette table.
Once you have done this, you have put the odds as much in your favour as possible. Here are three simple steps to help you beat roulette.
Rule 1: Play European
The European version has 37 slots with a single 0; the American version has an extra slot, a 00 to make 38.
The house advantage is 2.7% For European and 5.26% for the American table. Simple - play European!
Rule 2: Avoid These Bets
These include all single number bets, because these types of bets have large disparities between odds of success and payouts.
Always avoid the five number bet, it has the worst odds on the table.
Rule 3: Bets to Place
Use bets whose odds are near to their payouts.
These "even money" bets include betting on Even, Odd, Low, (numbers 1 through 18), High, (numbers 19 through 36), Red, or Black.
These bets pay out odds of 1 : 1. With these bets, you'll find your odds of winning win are 45% making it a very low risk way to bet.
Finally, look for a European single-zero wheel that offers a rule called 'en prison.' If you make even money bet and the ball lands on zero, you don't lose your bet. Instead, your bet is 'imprisoned', and you let it ride until the next spin. If your bet wins, you can remove it. The house edge here is cut in half and is just 1.35% making it the best bet of all.
The above simple guidelines will help you beat roulette and will outperform any mathematical system.
Keep in mind, that roulette is a game of chance and the most you can do is put the odds in your favour as much as possible and enjoy the game and maybe some healthy profits.
