For the first time in roulette they began to play in the XVIII century, when this entertainment appeared in the Parisian casino. Since then, with the help of such a game of chance, millions of people experience the destiny, everyone certainly has his own philosophy and strategy.
Over the years, roulette has acquired many myths. Although some of them can only be smiled, these misconceptions have seriously harmed players, forcing them to part with money.
The wheel hides the “sleeping numbers”.
There are 37 numbers in the European roulette version. It is logical that many of them can not fall out for a long time. That number on which the ball for a long time did not fall and is called “sleeping.” Many roulette players, after seeing such numbers, begin to focus on betting on them. It seems that these numbers are about to fall out. But the rules of the casino say that past results have no effect on the future. So missing a ball on certain numbers does not guarantee that he will be there soon.
You must bet on your own, lucky numbers.
Many people believe that there are some personally their lucky numbers. It seems that the bet on them in the casino will certainly bring good luck and money. In the Western world, the number “7” is considered lucky. Often put on the numbers of players or simply favorite numbers. But we must understand that “their” numbers do not guarantee a win. This is just a hobby that can not be taken seriously.
All wheels for roulette are the same.
It turns out that roulette has its own varieties, which differ at least in rings. For example, American roulette has 38 sectors, and European – only 37. This causes different chances of winning.
On all types of roulette the player has the same chances.
This is a fairly common myth. In fact, each roulette version has its own level of the institution’s advantage. In the American version, it is 5.26%, and in the European – only 2.7%. But the most liberal is the French version, in which the casino advantage is only 1.35%.
You can win at roulette using the betting system.
Many people in the pursuit of winning tend to get some advantage. It seems that a proven betting system will help to win. The simplest is the Martingale system, which consists in a constant doubling of the subsequent rates. In reality, such a system in the case of a lingering, loser-free series can completely destroy the player’s bank. So there is no system that would be able to level the advantages of the casino.
There are roulette curves.
Players romanticize the image of roulette specialists and, like them, look for wheels with a displaced center. It seems that there is an opportunity to guess which sectors the ball will hit more often. In reality, it is almost impossible to find such wheels – we need to study the results of tens of thousands of face-offs to determine the possible displacement of the wheel. So do not waste time on such searches, this is nothing but disappointment, will not bring.
If you continue the game, then sooner or later you will win it.
When a person constantly loses, he goes into a stressful state. Then it’s better to stop to come back in the casino another time. But there are stubborn people who can not stop putting and betting, expecting a big win. In fact, this is a problem, because a prolonged losing series can destroy the entire player’s bank. So this myth is dangerous, it is possible not to recoup as a result of a long game.
You can win with the help of talismans.
It’s hard to take this humor without humor. Sometimes players sit at the table with their talismans. Someone has a rabbit’s foot, and someone has chosen a happy coin, a four-leafed clover, or just a happy object. And although from the mathematical point of view the chances of gaining from this do not increase at all, it looks funny from the outside.
The dealer can affect the loss of certain numbers.
In fact, even an experienced dealer can not force the ball to fall into a certain hole. After all, the roulette wheel rotates in one direction, and the ball is thrown into the other. The ball flies towards the holes with numbers at different speeds, so that the dealer can only guess about the dropped number, along with other players.
Rotating the roulette wheel has its own sequence.
One of the most common myths about roulette says that the rotation of the wheel is subject to a certain logic, therefore, the history of the combinations that have fallen out earlier determines the next set of figures. In fact, with each rotation, the player has absolutely the same chances of winning as before. Sometimes blind stakes are why they bring more solid winnings than the game “on the system.”
You can always win using mathematical calculations.
Some players believe that using mathematics you can win not only in blackjack, but also in roulette. But in this game, such schemes do not work. The player simply can not accumulate enough data needed for calculations. That is why roulette is rightly called the “wheel of Fortune”.
There is no difference what stake to make.
In fact, it is very important what kind of bet. Depending on it will change and win. And there will be more chances of success if you bet on even / odd or black / red. If you bet on a single number, then the win will be much more difficult.
