Assuming a fair table, with just the inherrant mathematical edge to the house.
Quote:I walk in with £2,000.
Quote:I bet £100 Red. approx 49% that red comes up. It comes up black.I lose £100.
Quote:I bet £250 on Red. It comes up Green. I'm now down £350.
Quote:I bet £500 on Red. It eventually comes up Red. I'm up £150.
Quote: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.
When I turned 21 my friends and I went to Reno and in our naivety we were completely convinced Roulette was "there for the taking". I think the strategy was to keep squaring the bet or something. 2, 4, 16, etc. which quickly went beyond our limited means.
The 0 & 00 make that game a House Game and there is no beating it, you might as well play Keno for all the good it will do you.
