Knowing the Wheel When you walk up to a roulette table and put money down, you are basically throwing it away to chance and most of the players I see do just that, throw their money away. Roulette is not a race, it is a marathon, and cramming as much money on the board as you can is a doomsday invitation to lose it all quickly. The first step in your knowledge base for roulette is to know the wheel. I am only going to speak about the American style wheel, because it is what I have tested and proven my method with. Memorizing the wheel is not the easiest thing in the world to do, but if accomplished can give you one of the biggest advantages you can get playing this game. In the first figure are both versions of the wheel. Let us look more in depth at the American style wheel.
I am not going to discuss the European wheel but as you can see it has only one zero improving your odds slightly. We will use the 0 and double 00 as reference for our roulette strategy. We also need the table to get a grasp of what I am referring to in regards to the numbers.
Starting from the 00 on the top of the American wheel and make your way counter clock wise number by number. This is what you will see. Left side of the wheel: Top of the
Middle of the
Bottom of the
Looking at the table you think duhhhh but what you did not see is that when I was building this table I filled the middle portion first, because there is a heavy middle section on the wheel starting from thirteen on Page 6
the left side and continuing counter clockwise to twenty. The same is true on the right side of the wheel. Starting from 14 moving counter clockwise until 19 the wheel is heavy middle of the board. Below are the numbers shown for you and this will become important later. On the left side of the wheel, starting from 13 and going until 20 the numbers are like this: Middle=6 (this is 2/3 of this wheel section) Top=2 Bottom=3 Other numbers on the left side…from 7 to 28 Top=3….Middle=3 and that pesky 1 next to the 00=Top. The same is true for the right side of the wheel starting from 14 counterclockwise to 19. Here are the numbers: Middle=6 (this is 2/3 of this wheel section) Top=2 Bottom=3
Other numbers on the right side are 8 to 27 once again equaling 3 to 3 for the Top and Bottom, with that pesky 2 next to the 0. As you can see knowing the wheel can go in your favor if you can put together a couple of different concepts. Know the wheel and later watching the croupier’s habits.
Knowing the Table Knowing the table is a lot easier because it is staring you in the face and not hiding behind the croupier and the glass. Let’s look at it again. As you can see, 1-12 are on the top third of the board 13-24 are on the middle section of the board and 25-36 are on the bottom section of the board. Very obvious you say. This is true but now that
you know where the middle is heavy in the wheel, you can make a better decision later on how to bet.
Watch the Croupier Now let us integrate some ideas. You know where the wheel is heavy and you know what number is located where on the board. It is time to study the croupier. Often times the croupier changes every 15 minutes to an hour so it is important to catch his or her habits early. Many people play this game by odds, but seriously, this game is the chaos theory put to use very well so odds are useless unless you broke the equation of Murphyâ€™s Law and should now rule the world. Numbers can often be deceiving and betting on something not happening again may work at times, but looking for habits is the best way of all to catch some distinct rolling patterns. What you want to do is find the weakness of the game
and that weakness is human just like any other game or system. Croupiers throw that little pearl around the wheel hundreds of times per day and have developed (in most cases) muscle memory often times not even paying attention to how they roll. When you step up to a table you will see to the left or right of the wheel the number board telling you what number and colors have hit for the past 20 or so. This is your first reference point. Does the croupier hit randomly or does he have a pattern of left to right on the wheel or every 15 numbers around the wheel per turn. That is what memorizing the wheel does for you. Study these numbers intently and do not bet until you think you have an idea of what you want to do. I will tell you the best ways to bet later, but first you must understand the concept of the bet. Before you bet, you must be smart about the cost and the take. I will also associate this method of croupier understanding with a very intense and fun way to test your mind and betting skill later as a finally.
Being Smart Betting can be dangerous if you do not understand the limitations of the odds against you, be smart. Roulette (especially the American wheel) is heavily in favor of the house because of the 00. You must understand that continuing to gamble when you are up significantly brings your chance of winning down significantly. When you come to the table, you come with a specific amount of money to be told to you at a later time. You do not go to the ATM for more. You do not, when ahead, put more down than the predetermined plan. Set a goal, get close to it, and get out. If you lose the money that you came in with, which is of course possible because you are human, you leave and come back again another day, logging how much you lost and setting that goal again. Do not make your goal to lofty even though you lost last time, this is a cardinal mistake that leads into the greedy stay at the
table even though you are ahead, mentality. Be nice to the croupier often tipping a dollar or two when you win. This does a lot more for your winning than you would think. Sure, there is some psychology behind it, but just remember it is chaos.
Basic Strategy and Odds
The table above tells you everything you need to know about the odds. On the left side is the numbers or areas you will be betting in and on the right are the odds of winning and the take if you win. Looking at the table you can get an idea of the possibilities of breaking the odds in your favor and after reading, my proven method you may come up with something that you think may be better. I have run the numbers many, many times and have not found anything better yet. Finally, we are to the point of developing the strategy.
My Strategy and other methods When we take all the information given in this pamphlet and put them to affective use you will be successful playing roulette if you do
not get greedy. You, the croupier, the board, and the wheel have to be in harmony or this strategy and the other will not work. First, you have studied the croupier and found a pattern or maybe you think you can guess the next best number. That is up to you. Do not sit at a table with no one else on it, because you have to bet for the croupier to roll the ball. Now, you are not the only one at the table so you sit down and give him your money. You came to the casino with a minimum of 60 dollars and a max of 120, so you do not hurt your budget if you have one. If you do not, then this strategy will still work for you but on a different scale. The reason you came in with those numbers is you will be playing 12 numbers at a time, breaking the table down into 3rdâ€™s the natural way, i.e.: 1-12, 13-24, and 25-36 or a mix of top and middle or middle and bottom, that all depends on how you fill about the roll at the time. Looking at the odds table above you can see on a ten-dollar minimum table what you might or might not win.
Now give the croupier your 60 to 120 dollars and get it all in 1â€™s unless you are working with double than the standard amount or more of the starting money. Now that you have an Idea of what you want to bet on, let us look at what we should do to maximize our take. You decide either from gut instinct or from a solid croupier read, that he or she would roll a number on the middle section. I play this section often because of its large area of the wheel that it is predominant. You now take a 20 stack of your chips and set them on the table the way that is shown here.
This shape represents three chips. This represents one chip. 1.1
This will add up to twenty total chips down and that number is subtracted from the amount you win from hitting one of these numbers. You can cross-reference the Page 15
odds sheet if you like. The numbers in green represent the total win after the twenty you bet is subtracted. Add twenty to the numbers to see the total win. The numbers with decimal points next to the total capitol gained are the number of rolls you have just gone ahead after winning in that quadrant. If you keep up with that math you will all ways know how many turns you are ahead of the house. I have done multiple versions of this technique and have found that it has the best return on investment. If you do not feel good about the croupier’s roll just play minimum on the color i.e.: red or black. When playing the 3rd’s in this manor you are not obliged to play in any of the three distinct 3rd’s. You can split the thirds. Say you think the croupier is leaning toward 26 after you study his rolls. You may be better suited to split the middle 3rd with the bottom 3rd to be safe. This would mean that you put your 20 chips on the board starting from 22 to 33 or 19 through 30.
This method has brought in a 180% return on investment on roulette for me and I am sure it will do the same for you. Another method that I do not consider as safe but is very respectable is if you have a good handle on how the croupier is rolling and you have a number in your head, take the 20 and surround the number like so:
As you see, you are using five of your chips around a specific hot number of your choice. With the rest of your chips you could stack them on top of that specific bet or choose four more numbers that surround that number on the wheel. The rate of return is not as good if you miss more than you hit with this strategy, but that is your decision. Another variant of this particular strategy is the uses of 20 chips on the
board, much like my primary betting style, accept this style utilizes the wheel, and the board is just there to monitor the wheel. The table and wheel are locked in a balance of opposing forces that can be seen by the pictures below.
The numbers that are covered on the table are the left side of the wheel and I call it area LM (left middle). You see how it can be easily remembered. Look at the table. The chips stack points toward the ‘X’ in the middle (‘X’ marks the spot). The same can be said for the RM section of the, wheel or right middle section, see below. Page 18
The numbers on the board point away from the center and in the center, the chips create a circle like shape. Now that you can see the LM and RM portion of the wheel on the table, let us look at what I call the top and bottom of the wheel. Looking at the wheel to the right you can see the numbers that will be on the board. The layout below is what your chips will look like if you bet on a top and bottom wheel bet.
You can split the top and bottom relatively easily by looking at the wheel diagram. As I stated earlier, utilizing around 20 chips you cover the section of the wheel you think the croupier will hit base on your analyzing their previous roles. Now on to a very dissimilar method. Many people play thirds and most utilize the 2 to 1 odds method and I do not believe the return is worth the time or money. I will explain it to you anyway. Utilizing the table minimum, you put one stack of table minimum chips on a third of your choice (left, middle, right, or top, middle, bottom) and another minimum stack on another third of your choice. If you win on one of these thirds, you are up 5 or 10 dollars depending on the table minimum. After winning the starting
amount back, (10 or 20 dollars depending on the minimum table bet), you double your bet until you have reached the second starting amount, which was either 20 or 40 dollars. People do have success utilizing this method, but it is slow and sometimes can be very boring, because you are just blindly putting money down on the 3rds. This system goes on and on until you get board or the wheel beats you. Another method I came across by a gambling pro was a percentage play that is hot and cold depending on the roll. First things first, you are playing with bigger chips. You will be getting chips in 5 dollar increments and playing three of them on one color i.e.: red or black. Utilizing 2 of your five, five dollar chips you will be choosing a number of your choice, odds (35to1), and a split of your choice, odds (17-1). You cannot change the numbers chosen or you reduce your chance of hitting them. The odds of the table have now been turned in your favor at a rate of 53% chance of winning. I personally prefer to use 6 five dollar chips, which give you around a 56% chance of winning. You come out even on the color win and you have a better chance of Page 21
winning on the board numbers. The key to this one is to not change color or numbers and get out when you hit big and try it again another day. Earlier I wrote about surrounding a number when you have an idea what the croupier might hit. That is an ok strategy, but as strategies go, they are all ways evolving and getting better. I will be updating this book until I have figured out as much as possible about this game, but on to the strategy. There is a technique called timing the croupier, that takes quite a bit of practice. I just recently found it to be an amazing and difficult way to bet. One day I was sitting at a table and a man was betting a standard minimum bet on the table. No big deal, but wait he change his bet immediately after the croupier rolled and stacked towers of chips on two or three numbers. I started to follow him around on the table and won with him. He was winning about 25 percent of the time, but when he hit, he hit really big. The key to this manâ€™s betting system was timing the croupierâ€™s roll. He and I now
watch for the best and most consistent croupier, in terms of rolling ability, and play that table. If the croupier is erratic then do not sit down at that table. What I mean by erratic is this. You have now sat down or are standing up next to the wheel, because that is where you have to be to read the croupierâ€™s roll. When the croupier roll, do they spin the wheel at the same speed every time or do they change it up? You want a croupier who spins and rolls the ball the same every time and you will know. Watch his spin, when it leaves his hand what number did it come out on? Remember that number and wait for the ball to land. Where did the ball land? Did it land directly across from his release point three out of five rolls, or was it generally in the same area relative to where it left his hand? If this is the case, you have just made your first croupier and can now begin to calculate landing positions of the ball based on where the ball was released. These techniques are the only tried and true methods that I have come across. I hope that next time you go to the casino, you go for fun,
get out when you are ahead and never be to serious, because you will not enjoy the true chaotic numbers game of the best game in the world roulette. There will be numerous updates to this manual, so be sure to register for updates to the manual.
