# Can You Really Cheat At Roulette?

Let’s get one thing out of the way – it isn’t really possible to cheat at roulette. Each spin of the wheel is unique and does not predict what the next colour is going to be. For example, a red slot won’t occur just because the wheel has landed on a succession of black numbers.

Neither can you win by betting on ‘sleeping numbers’. If a number has not appeared for a while, then its odds of being landed on are not increased in this manner.

If you want to play a game with better odds of winning, then play the European game which can be found at many online casino gaming sites including Golden Palace Online Casino. Playing European roulette substantially reduces the house advantage of winning by almost a half. The American version of the game has both a ‘0’ and a ‘00’ slot on the wheel, increasing your chance of having your bet imprisoned on the wheel until the next round. That is a pretty big difference between the two games!

An English mathematician published a paper in the seventies telling the world that he had found a way to predict the movement of the ball to some extent – looking at the movements of the ball as it bounces and then rolls into a slot. Using very complex calculations on air resistance, Doyne Farmer made some headway into ‘predicting’ the outcome of roulette. He kept his research secret for a long time after the publication of the paper, explaining that he did not want to impede people’s chance of beating the casinos. His revelation was prompted when young students in the nineties made a similar attempt to predict the movements of the ball using rim friction.

Another study found that in order to be successful at roulette, you must first think like a physicist. The key, the conductors found, was knowing the speeds of the ball and the wheel when the croupier spins the wheel in motion and releases the ball. By working out the initial conditions and the precise location of the ball, will give the player an increases success rate, and in some cases beat them quite significantly. So get your calculator out.

Overall, ff you enjoy a game of pure chance, then roulette is the one for you. It’s a game to play when you’re enjoying a few drinks perhaps – depending on what stakes you’re willing to play with!
