Everyone with at least three IQ points knows that the odds are in favor of the house in any casino anywhere in the world.
Smart people approach a casino in one of two ways:
- to have some fun amp; let lady luck do what she may, or
- reduce the house advantage as much as possible in an effort to actually leave the casino ahead.
Then there are the fools. The system players at games of true chance.
Blackjack and craps can have the best odds if you really really understand the games and can bet serious money. You have to be ready to lose serious money, too. Remember, you can reduce the odds against you, but they will always be against you.
Also, betting is no child’s play and you need to be careful what you’re playing for, especially in blackjack, where you stand to lose more than to gain and not any regular judi bola where you can bet regular items. Only an expert gambler is competent enough to sail through this comfortably.
There is an old adage that the easier a game is to play, the worse the odds are for the player. Slots are a good example of that. But what about roulette?
Let’s look: there are thirty six numbers plus a zero and double zero. That makes thirty eight in total which will pay you thirty five to one if you win. Odds in favor of the house, as always.
And the odds favor the house (casino) for any bet you wish to make. No surprise.
But the gambling meccas should erect a statue to the unsung hero who placed the first history display!
Next to most roulette tables is a display that shows the last few spins of the wheel: what number, red or black, odd or even! Just pure information.
The casino will even give you a pad and pencil to record these numbers … and encourage those who are willing to try to divine the next spin of the wheel from these past spins.
But, come on. On a honest roulette wheel, which are where you will be playing, the chance of any spin is the same as any other. Each is a unique event that has no memory of whatever happened just before.
So, it matters not if there were ten ‘blacks’ in a row. The next spin could be black or red. The past has no link to the future.
But this display helps those who think that there is a pattern to ‘random’ in their effort to find one!
An honest wheel will have a result that has no relationship to the last spin. Could one predict the outcome based on bad information? One could also guess with the same results!
So, play Roulette if you want to. It can be a fun game. Just know that you will never be able to predict the next spin….. but, of course, that is part of the fun! But be aware when the Casino tries to ‘help’ you win!
