You will always feel an adrenaline rush when the roulette wheel is spinning. With just pure luck to depend on, players can have a really exciting experience with the high stakes, high risks and huge prizes that they could win.
Without any skill needed, some gamblers seem to take the adrenaline rush somewhat further by believing that there are alternative means to win at roulette. This results in a variety of myths designed not to profit in roulette but to give the casino some easy money.
Roulette is a fun game, but people need to not get carried away if they want to enjoy their roulette game. Here are some of the most popular myths you should ignore.
There is little difference between all roulette wheels.
Those people who think that roulette wheels are all the same are in for a great surprise. There are two types of roulette wheels. One is used in European Roulette, while the other is used in American Roulette. Their main 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 odds of appearing.
Another pervasive 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 gamblers and even dealers think that a dealer can actually make the ball fall in a specific segment 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, among others.
There is a mathematical system that helps you win in roulette.
Roulette is entirely a game of chance, and no method of betting, money management, or careful observation will let you win every time. Everyone who have tried it failed. You must not forget that the roulette wheel is completely random.
