The American roulette
wheel has all the numbers from 1 to 36 on it, plus a 0 and a 00 slot. The main difference between American and European or French wheels is the extra 00 slot. But because of this extra slot the house advantage on American wheels is double than the house advantage of European wheels. When playing an American wheel the house advantage is a high 5.26%.
The European roulette
wheel is also known as a French wheel. It has all the numbers from 1 to 36 on it, and a 0 slot. The house advantage is 2.70%.
You are advised to seek out and play European wheels because they have the lowest house edge.
No matter what roulette system you use you will never be able to lower the house advantage. Roulette is based on pure luck and that is why the house will always have the edge.
Most roulette systems claim to be able to predict what number will come up by analyzing the previous spins. But all the spins are independent from previous spins. The outcome of a previous spin will never influence the outcome of the current spin. All the numbers have the same chances of coming up regardless what number has come up in the previous spin.
Let's say that for the last 10 spins the winning number was red. You might be tempted to think that the next winning number will be black. The truth of the matter is that the next winning number has 50-50 chances of being red or black. The only one that remembers the outcome of the previous spin is you, the player. It doesn't matter if for the last 100 spins the winning number was red. The next spin is independent from the previous one. Unfortunately there's just no convincing some people of this simple fact.
Taking all of these facts into consideration we can come to one conclusion. Mathematical roulette systems do not work and do not influence the house advantage in any way.
So what should you do when coming up with a working roulette system of your own? Just follow these quick steps:
- Always seek out and play European wheels.
