# Find the Best Roulette Strategy

Roulette is a game where players bet on the outcome of a spinning wheel, with bets being placed on either numbers or colors. The roulette wheel has an extremely large range which covers 36 numbers, 0 to 36. A zero and double zero is included in the ranges as well, but are ignored for simplicity’s sake. All non-zero numbers are colored black while all zeros are colored red with green coming in second for most common color.

The betting is also very simple, with bets being either on numbers or colors. The winning odds are highly unfavorable for that of the players,  but there are some strategies that may help guide players toward a win.

The Martingale strategy calls for doubling down after every loss to build up profit.  For example, if a player were to place a bet of \$10 onto red and it lost, they would then double their next bet and place it on black (or vice versa depending on the color chosen). This will ensure that at least one bet wins, which can bring in large sums of money if played properly. The problem with this method is that only having one chance prevents players from gaining back any previous losses without winning.

Another popular strategy is the Fibonacci system. This one takes into account previous winnings and losses in addition to dividing bets among different sections (1/3, 2/3, 1). The idea is that since two numbers out of every three will lose, place your bet on either black or red for both sections to even out potential loses.  If a player were to place a \$10 bet on red initially and won at a payout of 3:2, they would then move their next bet onto section 2/3 with a total sum of \$20 (\$15 on first section plus \$5 from first win) divided by 3 resulting in a bet size of approximately \$6.67 on the second section. If this bet were to win, the player would follow up with a \$20 bet on section 1 and so on. The Fibonacci strategy is very automated after working through it once while ensuring that previous loses are accounted for so they don’t continue to build up.

For players looking to just bet straight on one color or number via Straight Up, there is also the D’Alembert system which evenly distributes bets depending on what has been played in recent rounds.  If a round of red wins, place your next bet entirely on black while if black wins then divide your next bet between red and black at a 2:1 ratio (i.e you will place half of your next bet onto red). This system keeps track of the most recent numbers played and ensures that equal bet sizes are placed on each of them.

Each strategy has its pros and cons, but one thing is for certain: rolling the dice means there’s a chance of losing everything. Be sure to take this into account before betting anything more than pocket change!

## Spin To Find A Biased Roulette Wheel

In the mid-20th century, mathematician William Fair used a roulette wheel simulator to investigate how many times a player needs to play the game before finding a biased wheel. After extensive testing, he found that a player can expect to win around fifty percent of games if they have enough time to test several hundred thousand spins. The key assumption in this investigation is that all bets are placed equi-probabilistically on every number. In other words, there’s no reason for one number should be played more than any other due to its likelihood of winning being equal. So what does this mean for you? It means that depending on your bankroll and gambling tolerance, it could take anywhere from minutes or months before you find an unbalanced wheel. A good rule of thumb is to build up a bankroll and bet large amounts when you find a biased wheel, but be sure to leave when your profits reach around 2-3 units (2-3 times the initial bet) per cycle after which the probability of winning decreases significantly.

## What is the mechanism behind a roulette wheel

A roulette wheel is a machine consisting of an outer wheel, inside which are mounted a smaller inner wheel and ball. The ball spins around the inner wheel while the outer wheel provides the motive force to get the ball up to speed. Once spinning, centrifugal forces push the ball outwards away from its point of origin until it reaches one of three pockets located around the edge of the inner wheel at different distances from this point. The pocket that it falls into depends on its angular momentum which can be manipulated by varying how fast or slow the ball is allowed to leave its source. Thus, if a player were to bet correctly on where it lands after being thrown, they would have a 1/38 chance of winning their bet times their original wager (38 pockets on the wheel).

It’s possible to harness these principles and create roulette alternatives for those who either can’t or don’t want to bet at a casino. The simplest type of such alternative is a rotating cylinder with various numbers painted onto its sides as well as an inner circle ranging from 0-36.  The ball placed inside would follow the same rules as if it were thrown into a stationary wheel with each number having equal odds, but since the wheel is always moving, players need only toss the ball onto whichever section they wish to bet on instead of setting up slot-like betting grids. A more complex alternative uses computers to track angular momentum through sensors embedded in the spinning device which then calculates where the ball will land. The ball is then released at a certain point to ensure that it will land in the appropriate section. These alternatives are great for those who wish to practice roulette without risking their own money, but there’s no substitute for the real thing if you want to win big!

As mentioned previously, William Fair found that players can expect around fifty percent of games to result in wins providing they have enough time to test several hundred thousand spins. Assuming an average game takes about five minutes and each spin costs \$1, this means that testing every possible combination would cost \$1/5 = \$0.20 per cycle or \$20000 for 100000 cycles which doesn’t sound so bad right? Well don’t forget about your losses! If half of games are losses then you’ll need to win \$50 per game on average just to break even. Assuming game times of five minutes each, this equates to winning \$1 every forty seconds which means if your device is not capable of outputting results faster than that, or you can’t audibly tell by listening closely enough if the ball landed in the right pocket, it’s useless for roulette! There’s also a limit to how much time you have before someone comes along and takes whatever money is in the machine so either be prepared for a fight or hide well when playing with real money.

## How do casino dealers calculate roulette winnings quickly

As mentioned previously, casinos are keen on keeping their money so they can make more of it, but there are some players who win too much for the casino’s liking. Fear not though! If you’re an honest player then they will be happy to help you figure out how much you won provided that you ask them nicely. A standard roulette wheel has thirty eight pockets numbered from 1-36 along with two zeros. This means that if a winning number was bet on and landed in one of the 36 non-zero pockets, the dealer would calculate its value by multiplying the initial bet times 36 and adding this amount to what was already won during this cycle.  If the ball lands in either of the zeros then it is a double zero and wins the same as a number with a 36 multiplier.

If you win some money from blackjack or any other casino game then it’s standard practice for dealers to pay out amounts in multiples of five dollars meaning that if you won \$27.50, they might hand you twenty five one dollar bills and two fives. In roulette however, the amount given to winners is calculated by rounding down to the nearest even number before multiplying by your bet. If catching multiple numbers on a single spin then payouts are calculated individually but if only catching one number during a cycle then calculate this number by taking away half of its value from your original bet and multiplying this by 38 after rounding down to the nearest even number beforehand.

## What system of bets gives the greatest chance of winning in Roulette

We’ve discussed the effects of betting systems in detail with regards to blackjack previously, but they can also be applied to roulette with similar results. The most basic system is known as “Red” and works by choosing numbers where the last digit is a red one. If you used this method and caught four winning numbers out of six spins for example, your winnings would be: (5 * 4) + (6 * 1) = 24 + 6 = 30 [dollars] This means that if you made ten bets using the red system then on average you’d expect to have won three times during that period giving an overall gain of thirty dollars on average per cycle which doesn’t sound too bad until we consider the fact that casino’s have an advantage of 5.26% over players meaning that they are expected to make a profit over time anyway.

Using the Martingale system, you double your bet after each loss until eventually you win back what you lost plus one unit hopefully giving you a profit in the long run if playing with perfect strategy. If we were to use this method for roulette then it would be best to set our initial wager as low as possible otherwise running out of money before succeeding is more likely than not due to the high house edge present in all forms of gambling. The only way that this could work is if there are no zeros on the wheel which can help or hinder depending on how many your previous bets were affected by so ask the dealer before sitting down if you’re not sure about the rules.

In conclusion, roulette has been compared to flipping a coin many times over the years because of its simplicity and guaranteed entertainment value but don’t be fooled into thinking that it’s all luck or that it can’t be beaten – try playing online for free right now if you don’t believe us!
