I won 100 bucks playing roulette then lost it.

Then won it
Then lost it.

Then I won like 400 playing blackjack.

Anyways if you have lots and lots of money to spend go for it and bet random numbers on the board .


But if you are a middle class joe like me then bet red black or play black jack

It has another purpose. I'll bet red/black for hours and drink free Scotch. If you count the value of the booze, I usually come out ahead.

Gambling like that, completely mindless, is much more fun to me than overthinking games like blackjack.

i saw a show on the history channel chronicling casino/gambling cheats. this one group of people figured out that wheel's can developed a bias. they arent properly aligned or something and certain numbers can come up more often. they would record all the numbers from a particular wheel, enter them into a program and figure out the best group of numbers to bet on. however, since they were discovered some casinos started moving the wheels around to different tables, rebalancing the wheels, etc.

I was in tahoe in the waning winter months, and my drink friend started playing roulette, this other guy was there and he had a notebook with all these numbers and writing something with every spin, 2 hours later my now drunker friend decides to leave with around $900 and this dude had lost everything.
I said to my friend so the guy could hear, so that's how you win you just put money on all the numbers. ehh it was funnier at the time.

Agreed. Roulette, of all the casino games, have the least chance of winning. BlackJack is the only game where you can even come close to evening the odds, however no game is 50/50... in the end, the house always wins.


actually roulette has the best odds of any game at casinos. if youre playing red/black youre just under a 50% favorite to win. not gonna find those odds anywhere else.

Acutally, roulette has the worst odds of any house game (that's of course assuming you know every percentage play in blackjack, craps, bacarat, paigow, etc...)...at least in the states...over in Europe I think there is only a 0...no 00...so your odds are closer to 50/50. ;-D

I've heard that; and I've also heard there are other places out there that have random roulette tables with just a 0... those are the only ones worth trying. Roulette is just a quick lottery; you throw your money away, but you find out instantly that you lost.

Last time I was at the Stratosphere (5 yrs ago?) they had roulette tables with only one 0.
