Sigh. Yes, I agree. But thank you. Some people need it spelled out for them.
Just a thought... humor me.
Regarding roullette, there is a strategy I am interested in trying out. There are many tables that display the results last several spins- such as the number of times the ball has landed on red, black, or green; odd or even numbers; first 12, second 12, third 12, zero, or double zero; first column, second column, or third column; and so on.
Based on these results, for example, if the ball has landed on red 5 out of the last 6 spins, the odds are the next number it lands on will be black. The odds of the ball landing on green exist, but it seems the odds for black are greater.
Anyway. Using the above example, the player bets $10 on black. The ball lands on red. The player loses. Now the ball has landed on red 6 out of the last 7 times. Odds are the ball will land on black. The player then doubles the last bet and bets $20 on black. Again, red. Now 7 out of 8 times. The player then doubles the last bet and bets $40 on black. Finally the ball lands on black. The player has won a total of $10.
I suppose this could be expanded to include looking at color, columns, odd or even numbers, etc. I don't imagine one could get rich on one spin, but over the course of several spins and very deep pockets, I think the end result would be that the player would come out winning.
Actually... I am not sure what the return is on just placing a bet on odd or even... so perhaps the amount won is greater than $10.
