You will always feel a rush of adrenaline when the roulette wheel is spinning. With just sheer luck to depend on, players can have a truly thrilling experince with the high stakes and risks coupled with the huge rewards that they could win.
Without any skill needed, some players are inclined to take the adrenaline rush even further by thinking that there are other ways to beat the roulette table. This resulted in a range of myths designed not to profit at roulette but to earn the casino more easy money.
Roulette is an exciting game, but people need to have sensible minds 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.
People people who say roulette wheels are all the same are in for a big surprise. There are two versions of roulette wheels. You have the European Roulette wheel and the American Roulette wheel. 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 ‘due’ has higher odds of appearing.
Another common roulette fallacy 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.
Many gamblers and even dealers think that a dealer can actually make the ball land in a particular region of the wheel by controlling the way the roulette wheel is turned. There is no prove for this fallacy, but there are factors that affect the wheels turn, including friction, air pressure and motion, wheel balance, etc.
There is a mathematical system can help you win at roulette.
Roulette is purely a game of chance, and no style of betting, money management, or careful observation can make you win every time. Many have tried it, and many have failed. You must not forget that the roulette wheel is completely random.
