How To Win At The Casino Roulette Wheel - Joe's Cat Website


So you want to learn how to win at roulette - and you want proof with examples too!

This is page 2. If you arrived here from another website, then you will want to start with Page 1.


IMPROVE YOUR ODDS

To give yourself the best chance of winning, you have to reduce your chances of losing, so, here are some steps to follow:

  1. Play the European Casino Roulette Wheel and avoid the American Roulette Wheel.

    The European Roulette Wheel has a 1-in-37 (2.7%) possible chance of landing on "0", but the American Roulette Wheel has 2-in-38 (5.3%) possible chances of landing on "0" or "00".

    If you are at an American Casino, ask if the European Wheel is available because some Casinos have them. 5.3% may seem small, but it means that about one out of twenty spins are likely going to land on "0" or "00" with the American Wheel, while about one out of forty spins are likely going to land on"0" for the European Wheel.

  2. Play the bets that have the best chance of winning.

    As mentioned on Page 1, you should choose a 50:50 type bet instead of choosing one of the other types of bets, and you should do this for two reasons:

    1. Every time you spin the roulette wheel, you have a 1-in-37 (2.7%) or a 2-in-38 (5.3%) chance of losing your bet to the casino house if the ball lands on "0" or "00", therefore, the fewer times you spin the wheel to win, the better it is for you.
    2. Every time you lose, you need to double your bet to recover your loses. This is easier done when you have a very good chance of winning, but very difficult to do if the odds are higher against you because you need to bet many times more often, and your bet doubles in size rapidly.

    With the American Wheel you can choose any of the 50:50 type bets such as Back:Red or Even:Odd, but with the European Wheel, you should choose the "Even" bet because you have an extra advantage of "Partir" or of "Prison" in your favour. Either of these methods more or less reduce your risk of losing - which is good for you.

    If you play "Even" on the European Wheel, and the Casino uses the rule of "Partir", then you share your bet between You and the Casino if the ball lands on "0" (because "0" is also "Even"). Half of your bet goes to the Casino, and you recover your other half of your bet. If you play this method of Roulette, you will need to play half plus one on your next spin if you are going to keep yourself from losing, so, if your last spin was a bet of 2, the Casino takes 1 and you keep 1, so your next spin, you should bet 1+1=2. If your last spin was a bet of 8, the Casino takes 4 and you keep 4, so your next spin, you should bet 4+1=5. You can watch this if you run the simulator below one roll at a time.

    If you play "Even" on the European Wheel, and the Casino uses the rule of "Prison", then (because "0" is also "Even"), your bet is held on the table until the next spin, which then decides if you win or lose this bet. If the next spin is not "Even", the Casino keeps your bet. If the next spin is "Even", then the bet is returned back to you.

    You can more or less treat this method of roulette like miss-a-turn, or skip-a-turn.


SPIN THE WHEELS

Below we have a simulation for four types of Roulette Wheels so that you can compare one with another. We do this by making one random number that is then given to all four wheels at the same time, or in other words, the ball lands on the exact same spot for all four wheels so that you can compare one with another. The American wheel is divided into 38 slots, while the European wheel is divided into 37 slots where the ball can land.

American and European Roulette Wheel Example Simulations
Even bets only so that we can also watch and compare the gradual effects of "Partir" and "Prison" for the European Wheels.
Most of the time, most spins will appear the same since there are 18 even and 18 odd numbers for both American and European wheels. Occasionally, you will see the American wheel hit an extra "0 or 00" since it has a 38th slot holding "00".

The First European wheel shown in the top right is not using the advantage of "Partir" or "Prison". It is playing similar to Black/Red or another 50:50 method so that you can compare the advantage to the American Roulette Wheel (you can see the gradual difference as the European Wheel wins more often than the American Wheel).

When the European wheels land on "0", you can compare the effects of "Partir" and "Prison" (these are best seen when you do one spin at a time).

The Second European Wheel shown in the bottom left is using the advantage of "Partir", where you share half the win with the house if you spin a zero.

The Third European wheel shown in the bottom right is playing "Prison", which is more or less like playing miss-a-turn.
