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 needed, some gamblers like to take the adrenaline rush somewhat further by thinking that there are other means to win at roulette. This results in a variety of myths designed not to win in roulette but to give the casino some easy money.
Roulette is a fun game, but players need to have sensible minds if they want to play roulette. Here are a couple of the most popular myths you should ignore.
It doesn’t matter which version of roulette you play.
Those people who believe that roulette wheels are all the same are in for a huge surprise. There are 2 kinds 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 combination that is ‘hot’ 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.
some players and even dealers think that a dealer can actually make the ball land in a specific region of the wheel by determining how the roulette wheel is turned. There is no prove for this belief, but there are factors that affect the wheels turn, like friction, air pressure and motion, wheel balance, among others.
There is a mathematical system that helps you win at roulette.
Roulette is purely a game of chance, and no way of betting, money management, or careful observation can help you win all the time. Many have tried it, and many have failed. You must remember that the roulette wheel is completely random.
