One of these statements:
What a lot of rubbish...

Is it possible?
Where is Great Yarmouth? What's roulette?
For all I know, you may have had all of those thoughts in that order. Mumbo jumbo, hey. We all know that you can't win playing roulette, hey? You can't beat fixed odds because the casino is guaranteed to win long term.
I can't see how you can win playing roulette. It's the truth. However, it's a fact that I have been to the Grosvenor Casino at Great Yarmouth at least 10 times in the last few years and I am well in profit. So why is that? What is the reason? Have I just got lucky? I think, for the most part, I have been lucky. But there may be some reason why I have increased my chances.
Compared with all other games you can play at any UK casino, roulette gives you the best odds of winning. I think the casino edge is 2.7% which compared with the likes of pair plus on three-card poker you are a winner without trying. I think pair plus takes about 6%, which is hard work.
Anyway, let's get back to roulette.
I figure the only way you can win at playing roulette is by using these three variables (if you can actually call them variable):
- Playing for a couple of hours
- Betting on a single number and corner
- Betting level stake
Yes, you need to be lucky to win. If you are unlucky you will play and not see a number come up once.
My approach is simple. I look to see which number has come up a couple of times in the last hour or so and bet on that religiously. There is no logic to why the number should come up again but for whatever reason it often does.
In addition to the single number, I will bet on a corner which includes the single number. This helps to give a few wins along the way (if you are lucky).
Bet for a couple of hours. If you bet all day and all night the casino rake will gradually take its toll and you are sure to lose. But short term your odds are not that different from the casino. In fact, they often give free bets, drinks vouchers and incentives to get you through the door which can mean when betting £20 - £50 you are pretty much betting on a level playing field.
Just keep betting on your single number and corner and hope you get lucky.
