Good and Ugly

Later in this lesson, you will find the good roulette
strategies based on
dealer signatures, however I begin with the ugly or losing methods,
known as Roulette’s Ugly Seven:

On a perfectly balanced roulette wheel, not one of the Ugly Seven is
a winning strategy. Each will lose the percentage the house
them on the total amount of money a player bets in the long run.
roulette, that edge is
2.7 percent on the inside bets and 1.35 percent on the outside
bets when the casino has an option called “en prison.”
the American double-zero roulette wheel that edge is a
frightening 5.26 percent on the inside bets and, in some casinos, a
edge on the outside “even-money” bets where the “surrender” option is
So, if over the course of a lifetime of playing
roulette, a player
bets one hundred million dollars on a combination of inside and outside
he or she can expect to lose between $1,350,000 and $2,700,000. An
expect to lose between $2,630,000 and $5,260,000 on those same wagers.
The math is merciless.
However, over the years ingenious roulette players have
figured out ways to beat the physical wheel, as opposed to the
underpinnings of the theoretical game, by locating wheels that were
biased in favor of certain numbers.
These roulette wheels may have
had design flaws, or usage flaws that
over time caused the ball to favor some numbers or sections over
Players call such strategies “biased-wheel play” and
just such “play” that was used by the few individuals who were able to
the bank” at Monte Carlo several
decades ago. They
recorded tens of thousands of spins and when they found a roulette
was obviously “off” -- they came on with big bets and battered the
casino to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
So while the math of roulette might be merciless,
of the game just might be beatable if you have the time, discipline,
some cases, the talent to put into practice.
Take the example of a dealer
. For years gambling
writers have speculated that some dealers might be able to influence
of the ball because they get into a “rhythm” where they pick the ball
certain way, wait a given beat, then release the ball with the same
and every time. So a dealer might spin in such a way that more than
of the time the ball lands within ten to twenty pockets of the last
hit. See lesson–Roulette
If you know such a
dealer, money can be made on them, often a lot of money.
In a similar way, some dealers have consciously
developed the ability to hit sectors of the wheel. These dealers are
“sector shooters” and they too can be exploited if you understand their
abilities and psychology.
The “wheel clocker” is an entirely different animal. A
player can develop the ability to analyze the trajectory of the ball
approximate where it will land when it finishes its orbit. This is the
difficult roulette method to learn and to put into practice in a
casino. It requires
practice to perfect and then tremendous concentration to perform in the
These advantage-play roulette methods are all perfectly
course, casinos might not want you to play these systems and,
players, there are simple ways for casinos to thwart each and every
method, if they know a player is using such a roulette method,
We realize that most casino players are obviously
that interested in putting in the time and the practice to master most
advantage-play methods. It’s a lot of time and practice.
But for those of you who would like a chance to turn the
tables on the casinos, these are the only roulette methods that can
work to do
just that. They are concrete attacks on where the casino game of
It is fun to know that for just about every game the casinos
come up with, some players, some times, can come up with ways to beat
games -- legally!
The casinos have created ingenious
environments for players
to enjoy playing games where the house usually has the edge, but some
players have invented roulette methods for surviving those environments
on top in those games.
