You will always feel a rush of adrenaline when the roulette wheel is spinning. With no more than sheer luck to rely on, players can have the ride of their lives with the high stakes, high risks and huge prizes that they could be winning.
With no skill necessary, some players like to take the adrenaline rush somewhat further as some think there are other means to beat the roulette table. This results in a number of myths designed not to win at roulette but to earn the casino some easy money.
Roulette is a fun game, but gamblers need to not get carried away if they want to enjoy their roulette game. Here are several of the most common myths you should avoid.
There is little difference between all roulette wheels.
People people who believe that roulette wheels are all the same are in for a huge surprise. There are 2 kinds of roulette wheels. One is used in European Roulette, while the other is used in American Roulette. Their primary difference is 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 combination that is ‘hot’ has higher odds of appearing.
Another popular roulette myth 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 players and even dealers think that a dealer can actually cause the ball to land in a specific region of the wheel by controlling the way the roulette wheel is turned. There is no prove for this myth, but there are considerations that affect the wheels turn, for example, friction, air pressure and motion, wheel balance, etc.
There is a mathematical system can help you win in roulette.
Roulette is nothing more than a game of chance, and no method of betting, money management, or careful observation can let you win every time. Many have tried it, and many have failed. You must not forget that the roulette wheel is completely random.
