Albert Einstein once said “beat the roulette table, you have to take some money from it. ”
Nevertheless, various equal money bets in roulette have encouraged many players over the years to try and undo the game by using more than one version of the martingale betting system. As discussions of the martingale system states, there are many fundamental flaws in its performance and that inevitably the result will lead to huge monetary losses. Still, another technique including the Fibonacci method, where bets are calculated according to the order of Fibonacci, was presented. Despite the particular order, this system proved futile as well.
A roulette betting system has been described by Andres Martinez, a New York Times editor. In his book entitled “24/7”, he used the term “amazed experience”. The idea is to cut your session money into 35 units which is based on a specific good number for 35 consecutive rounds of the wheel. Therefore, if the number is hit on the specified number of times, the player gains back his original money and can make more spins with casino money.
There is a false impression that green numbers are “casino numbers” and that placing bets on them can get some home advantage. It is a fact that the edge of the house are derived from the presence of green numbers but they are roughly possible to be minted as all other numbers.
Various attempts have been made by engineers to undo the house advantage by means of predicting the mechanical operation of the wheel, most significantly by Joseph Jagger, credited with breaking a bank of Monte Carlo in 1873. These systems were effective in a sense that they have determined in what number the ball is likely to land. In 1961, Claude Shannon, credited with contributing to the field of information theory, devised the first laptop to have successfully determined what the number would be hit by the ball.
In order to avoid anything of the sort, the casinos maintain their wheels, balancing and realigning them on a regular basis to maintain the results of random rotations.
A computer to replicate roulette wheel trends at one of the casinos in Madrid was designed by Gonzalo Garcia-Pelayo during the early years of the 1990s. He placed a bet on the most possible numbers. At the same time as family members, he bagged more than millions of dollars over the course of several years. The legitimacy of his technique was questioned by the casino but the court favored his claims.
In 2004, a technique known as sector optimization was reportedly used by a certain group of people in London. With the use of mobile camera phones, the path of the ball has been planned. In December of that year, the court claimed no fraud was involved because camera phones like fleas did not have an effect on the ball. The group earned a total of 1.3 million British pounds.
