How to win at roulette

Probably the most frequent question asked by fans of this fantastic world is the following: "Is roulette beatable, is it possible to win at roulette or are we all deluded?"


The answer is in my opinion unambiguous: at roulette it is possible to win but it is not easy.


If many agree regarding the end, the same cannot be said regarding the means.


Roulette can be beaten, according to the conception of official science, only in two ways:


Instrumental physical prediction

The search for faulty roulette wheels.

Instrumental physical prediction is perhaps the only technique for winning at roulette feared by owners. It comes into play when the ball has already been thrown.


In the moment following the launch, the result (number drawn) ceases to be random but becomes causal: in fact, there is a close cause-effect relationship between the forces that are applied to the boule and rotor and the number resulted.


Obviously there will be so many variations (rotational components of the bowl, humidity, temperature, dirt, condition of the croupier's hands, microscopic imperfections of the wheel and the bowl, etc.), as to make it impossible, even in the laboratory, to effectively predict a single number. The presence of the lozenges (diamonds) and the "impact" effect of the rotor with the ball further complicate the situation (the lozenges could actually make some physical roulette prediction techniques simpler). The operators of this strategy will target a sector (usually no less than 1/3 of the wheel). To carry out the instrumental prediction, a series of techniques are adopted which, with appropriate instruments (chronometers, cameras or the most disparate types of scanners) are able to calculate the speed of the boule and the rotor. An appropriate computerized algorithm would allow, starting from the aforementioned data, to calculate the falling sector of the ball with a good margin of success and therefore to win at roulette.


The instrumental prediction is an indisputable reality: Thorp himself, father (not founder) of the modern BlackJack, with the help of a world-class computer scientist, Shannon, managed to demonstrate the feasibility of the thing.

The path of defective roulette to win at roulette (biased) arises from the following maxim: "nothing that is made by man is perfect". According to this theory, the use of the wheel could lead in some conditions to imperfections, such as to favor the sorting of some numbers.

The aforementioned weapons are not the only ones present in the speculator's arsenal. Many swear by the effectiveness of visual ballistic physical prediction. This path is very controversial: many accredited scholars do not consider it feasible. In my opinion this is possible but it is necessary to find "optimal conditions" (increasingly rare in today's casinos) and the operator must necessarily be, I won't say "a phenomenon" but very "awake".

Over the last century in Europe, especially in Italy and France, thousands of techniques have been developed aimed at winning at roulette and therefore ensuring a profit for the player. Scholars such as Sadia, Marigny, D'Alost, to name a few, have proclaimed that they have beaten roulette. The vast majority of techniques developed by these scholars were based on one or both of the following techniques:


Shot selection

Financial maneuver

The selection of the shot to win at roulette claims, using various techniques (delays, frequencies, compensations, various closures, search for harmonies, cyclometry, cabala, etc.), to be able to trace some situations in which a chance has a greater value than that predicted by the calculation of probabilities or which, at least, is a harbinger of producing limited waste. The classic phrase:  “every shot is a new shot,” dismisses these techniques.

The maneuver, to win at roulette, claims, by increasing or decreasing the stake based on various factors (cash, waste, etc.) to have profits. The symmetry and negative EV make any uppercut useless. Please refer to the dedicated page for more information
