You will always feel an adrenaline rush when the roulette wheel is spinning. With merely sheer luck to back on to, players can have a truly thrilling experince with the high stakes, high risks and huge prizes that they could be winning.
With no skill whatsoever to take into account, some gamblers seem to take the adrenaline rush somewhat further by thinking that there are other ways to to profit from roulette. This resulted in a mix of myths designed not to profit at roulette but to give the casino some easy money.
Roulette is a fun game, but people need to think more rationally if they want to enjoy their roulette game. Here are a few of the most popular fallacies you should ignore.
It doesn’t matter which version of roulette you play.
Those people who say roulette wheels are all the same are in for a great surprise. There are 2 versions of roulette wheels. One is used in European Roulette, while the other is used in American Roulette. Their primary difference lies in the number of slots in the wheel. The European Roulette wheel has 37 slots number 1 through 36 and another slot is reserved for zero. The American version, on the other hand, has 38 sots numbered one through 36 and has two additional slots for zero and double zero. The difference may seem small, but it is not. The house edge will tell you why. In European roulette, the house edge is about 2.7%, while in American Roulette the house edge is 5.27%, meaning you lose more of your bankroll in American Roulette than in European Roulette in a given time.
A number that is ‘hot’ has higher odds of appearing.
Another pervasive roulette myth is when a number combination or a number has not yet appeared, it is said to be due and has more chances of appearing. For example, black has appeared four times in a row. The myth says that red is due and will most likely come out the next turn. This is obviously not true because the wheel simply turns, and it has no recorder of any sort to tell it that the red is due. True, there is not even one in 100 chances that the black can appear seven times in a row, but that doesn’t mean the red is due the next turn because you simply don’t measure probability of something that has already happened. The odds of getting a black in the next turn remain one in two chances.
The wheel is not 100% random.
A number of gamblers and even dealers think that a dealer can actually make the ball land in a particular region of the wheel by determining how the roulette wheel is turned. There is no basis for this belief, but there are factors that affect the wheels turn, like friction, air pressure and motion, wheel balance, among others.
There is a mathematical system can help you win in roulette.
Roulette is purely a game of chance, and no method of betting, money management, or careful observation will help you win every time. Everyone who have tried it failed. You must remember that the roulette wheel is 100% random.
