How To Make Your Own Roulette System And Get The Best Odds.

Today too many sites, especially on Google paid listings, offers winning roulette systems for money. If you are thinking of buying, a roulette system, save your money because roulette systems sold for money don't work!

Here we will show you how to devise your own system based around reducing the house edge as much as possible and showing you the best bets to place. It's easy to make your own roulette system - here is all the information you need.

The House Advantage

There are two types of roulette wheel you can play on:
1) The American roulette wheel has 38 slots numbered from the 00, 0 to 36. Having two zero's gives the house an advantage of 5.26%.

2) The European roulette wheel has 37 slots numbered from the 0 to 36. With having only one zero the house has an advantage of just 2.70%. This is the best wheel to play.

You need to keep in mind that the house advantage cannot be taken away by roulette systems. It is there before you start playing and no matter which roulette systems you use it never goes away.

Roulette Systems and the House Advantage

The reason why the house advantage never goes away in roulette is that it is a pure game of chance. A system no matter how it is applied cannot reduce the house edge.

Roulette systems that are sold base the probability of the next spin on the spins that have gone before, i.e. they use past data to predict what will happen in the future. If however every spin is unrelated to the previous spin, it is useless trying to use past data, as it has no relevance to the future. Every roulette system sold bases its success on its mathematical ability to predict the future from past data, which is not relevant.

There will always be people who believe that if red has come up 5 times in a row the chances of black coming up next have increased. However, this is not based on mathematics - its based on luck. The chances are still the same even if red came up 50 times in a row, and no gambler ever achieved regular winnings relying on luck.

The Best Roulette System
Firstly play on the European wheel; you then need to decide what bets to place.

Bets to Place
Stick with the bets whose odds almost mirror their payouts. These "even money" bets include betting on Even, Odd, Low (numbers 1 through 18), High (numbers 19 through 36), Red, or Black. All these pay out at 1 : 1.

Look for a wheel that offers the rule 'en prison.' If you make an even money bet and the ball lands on zero, you don't lose your wager. Instead, your bet is 'imprisoned' i.e held hostage, and you let it go forward to the next spin. If your bet wins, you can remove it from the table The house edge is just 1.35% on this bet.

Reducing the House Advantage as Much as Possible
This is all you can do and as you can see from the above you can get the house edge down to just 1.35%. This gives you a chance of making money and of course, allows you to enjoy the unique thrill and excitement of roulette. Don't buy roulette systems for money; you can make your own from the above information that will work better than any you can buy.
