Roulette Betting Strategies

Do you know that you cannot predict the outcome of the roulette game? Do you know that there are tons of betting systems, which are made for “winning?” Well, if you don’t know either of these facts, I am to open your eyes a bit.
Roulette wheel has 37 pockets, if it is European, or 38 pockets, if it is American. You have 1 chance in 37 to win, if you make a straight bet. And you cannot predict the pocket the ball will land in, as every spin is an independent event.

But still there are people, who try to prove opposite. They invent betting systems, which fail in a long run. It means, if you follow them, you will win for a while and then you will lose everything at once. Let us consider some of roulette systems.
I should mention that the systems are developed for the equal money bets. It means that you should bet on colors, high/low numbers, or even/odd numbers, if you follow one of the systems.

Oscar’s Grind
According to a legend, this system was called after the gambler, named Oscar. Its point is in betting with units (let us take \$10 as 1 unit). You can take a bank roll of 10 units. You take a unit and make an even-money bet. If you win, you raise the next bet by one unit, and if you lose, you bet the same. Why this roulette winning strategy is good? The reason is simple – it does not take all your cash fast. Guess, why is it called Grind?

Gambler’s Fallacy
If you still think that roulette outcome can be predicted, you should know about the following fact. On August, 18, 1913 one casino in Monte Carlo devastated the pocket of the players. In one of the tables black came up 26 times consecutively. Can you imagine those people, who were betting according to the Martingale system? It says that you have to double your bets. People lost tons of cash that day.
But at the same time this event proves that roulette spins are completely independent events from each other so you should think twice before choosing your favorite strategy among many roulette systems.
