While browsing on to the internet we came upon a very interesting article. It said that a roulette player can gain an advantage if he pays attention to the way the dealer spins the ball. Can this be true? Can the way the dealer spins the ball really give you and edge?
How are you supposed to make use of this new found knowledge? The article claims that if you analyze the way a dealer spins the ball you will get a rough idea of what number will come up. Your chances of guessing if the winning number will be even for example are slightly better than 50%. Depending on how many times the ball will spin you will get an approximate idea of what number will come up. Then all you have to do is place a spread bet in the area where you think the winning number will be. If you win, the payout will cover your spread bet and you will even make a profit.
Here are the "wholes" in the theory presented in this article. First of all you will never be able to count how many times the ball spins. It is so little and it spins so fast that you cannot get an accurate count.
Why do you think the casinos put the results of the previous 20 spins up on computer displays for? It is because they know for a fact that no matter what method, system or strategy you use you will never be able to predict which will be the winning number. And we all know how much casinos love money, so they would never give this information away if it would actually help someone predict the winning number.
This theory is complete nonsense. The only thing that you should concern yourself with is playing a smart game and having fun. Strategies are for other casino games like blackjack or poker. So if you want to use a strategy, then we recommend that you try one out while playing blackjack or poker, not roulette. There is nothing you can do to influence the outcome of the game when playing roulette. This is not the case when playing blackjack or poker.
