Avoid These 4 Roulette Myths and Play Like a Pro!

Roulette is a fun exciting and simple game to play, requiring no skill. This makes it very popular.

With its popularity a number of roulette myths have grown up and players who believe them cut their chances of success dramatically. Here are the most common ones:

Roulette Myth 1: All Roulette Wheels Are the Same

The first roulette myth is that all roulette wheels are the same - they are not.

For example, you have the European and American wheels to choose from and the European is the best one to play, as your odds of success are better.

Why? Quite simply, you have 37 slots rather than 38; this means the house advantage is just 2.70% on European wheels, whereas it is 5.25% on American wheels on all bets.

So it's obvious, get the odds in your favour from the start and play European roulette wheels only.

Roulette Myth 2: Each spin of the roulette wheel is not random

The second and perhaps the most common of the roulette myths is: The history of previous spins has an affect on the outcome of the next spin.

For example, if the ball falls on red 10 times in a row players feel that black has a higher chance of coming up next - this is not true.

The odds remain 50% - 50% and this would be the same if the ball had fallen on red 20, or even 30 times. The reason for this is that every spin is an independent event and previous history is irrelevant to predicting future spins.

Many players also like to look for and bet on 'sleeping numbers' - numbers that has not been hit for a long time.

There is no logic behind such a bet as we have seen - the chances of that number coming up is 1 out of 36 numbers on every spin.

Just because one number has been 'sleeping' does not make it more likely that the number picked will come up on the next spin.

Roulette Myth 3: You can beat roulette with a mathematical system

This leads on from myth 2 and sees many people buying mathematical systems to beat roulette consistently.

They can't work by their very nature. Why? Quite simply if there is no past data that can analysed - so how can you have a mathematical system with no reliable past data? You can't!

Roulette is a game of pure chance and a system that claims to make money consistently from such a game is a contradiction in terms.

Roulette Myth 4: Money management systems

Money management cannot affect the house advantage on any bet, nor guarantee that you will win more money.

The house has an advantage before you apply a money management system and has that same advantage after you apply money management systems, the house edge does not change.

If the house always has this advantage, you cannot change it, or manage it.

So How Do You Make Money?

Well you are half way there by not falling for the above roulette myths!
