Eh, you can hit a bigger lick, but you can also lose a lot more. You can play basic blackjack strategy and get pretty close to break even (if you play basic strategy absolutely perfect). I personally don't believe that a system exists that would allow someone to be anywhere close to break even at roulette over the long haul.
But, it's a lot more fun that blackjack, lol.
