Experiencing an adrenaline rush is almost always a part of every roulette spin. With nothing but pure luck to depend on, players can have a really exciting experience with the high stakes and risks coupled with the huge rewards that they could win.
Without any skill whatsoever to take into account, some gamblers are inclined to take the adrenaline rush a little bit further by believing that there are other ways to beat the roulette table. This resulted in a mix of myths created not to profit at roulette but to earn the casino more easy money.
Roulette is a wonderful game, but gamblers need to not get carried away if they want to enjoy their roulette game. Here are a few of the most pervasive fallacies you should ignore.
All roulette wheels are the same.
Those people who insist that 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 more chances of appearing.
Another popular 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.
A number of players and even dealers think that a dealer can actually make the ball fall in a particular segment of the wheel by controlling how the roulette wheel is turned. There is no basis for this fallacy, but there are elements that affect the wheels turn, like air pressure, fiction, wheel balance, etc.
There is a mathematical system that helps you win at roulette.
Roulette is solely a game of chance, and no style of betting, money management, or careful observation can help you win every single time. Many have tried it, and many have failed. You must not forget that the roulette wheel is 100% random.
