Subj: Shouldn't Roulette be completly winnable?
Posted: Wed Jan 09, 2019 at 04:12:41 pm CST (Viewed 313 times)



Assuming a fair table, with just the inherrant mathematical edge to the house.

I walk in with £2,000.

I bet £100 Red. approx 49% that red comes up. It comes up black.I lose £100.

I bet £250 on Red. It comes up Green. I'm now down £350.

I bet £500 on Red. It eventually comes up Red. I'm up £150.

The above is 2 losses to my 1 win. A dangerous game to play, but even with more losses, I should still win, as long as I have the capital to keep playing and I know when to quit.
