You will always feel a rush of adrenaline when the roulette wheel is spinning. With only pure luck to back on to, players can have a really exciting experience with the high stakes, high risks and huge prizes that they could be winning.
With no skill necessary, some people are inclined to take the adrenaline rush a little bit further as some think there are other means to win at the roulette game. This resulted in a range of myths created not to profit at roulette but to give the casino more easy money.
Roulette is a wonderful game, but gamblers need to not get carried away if they want to enjoy playing roulette. Here are some of the most common myths you should avoid.
It doesn’t matter which version of roulette you play.
Those people who insist that roulette wheels are all the same are in for a big surprise. There are two versions of roulette wheels. One is used in European Roulette, while the other is used in American Roulette. 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 ‘due’ has more odds of appearing.
Another pervasive 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.
Many gamblers and even dealers think that a dealer can actually cause the ball to land in a particular segment of the wheel by controlling how the roulette wheel is turned. There is no prove for this myth, but there are factors that affect the wheels turn, like wheel balance, friction, air pressure and motion, etc.
There is a mathematical system that helps you win in roulette.
Roulette is nothing more than a game of chance, and no way of betting, money management, or careful observation will let you win all the time. Everyone who have tried it failed. You must not forget that the roulette wheel is 100% random.
