1. Introduction

Roulette is a straightforward game that can be learned without too much difficulty. Playing it in its basic form is quite simple - you are betting that a number(s) or a combination of numbers will come up on the next spin of the wheel. Because some wagers are more difficult to win than others, the various wagers have different payoffs.

One of roulette's biggest attractions is its high payoff for winning a bet on a single number - 35 to 1. If you wager 17 and it shows on the next spin, your wager will be paid off at 35 to 1 odds.

With a dollar bet, you win $35, and with $100 wagered, you win $3,500.

Although these high odds are attractive, we will find that there are even more attractive wagers to be made at roulette. Rather than trying for a single win on a long-shot wager, I have found that there are some "bread and butter" types of wagers at roulette that will pay you time after time, session after session.

Roulette is played at a much more leisurely pace than other LIVE casino games, especially craps. I enjoy playing craps and blackjack as well as roulette, but when it comes time to relax, as well as build up steady winnings, roulette is my game.

Often roulette players make wagers based on their favorite numbers, such as anniversaries and birth dates. You'll soon see why these kinds of bets are not advisable.

My approach to roulette entails using a "hit and run" strategy that piles up consistent wins. I am convinced that my "Maximum Advantage Roulette" strategy can overcome the house odds of either American (double-zero) roulette wheels or European wheels (single-zero) which offer better odds.

And, I have lots of data to back up my statement that roulette can be beaten.

If you are looking for a way to beat the game, there are many books written about roulette. These books generally fall into two broad categories. Most of the books you will find in bookstores are in category one in which the mechanics of the game are described with a simplistic betting strategy or two and many stories about the author's adventures playing the game are recounted. These books are very useful if you want to learn how to play the game, learn about roulette etiquette or just be entertained.

However, you are not likely to learn how to beat the game from these books. The systems used by the authors tend to be very similar and are typically the same old shopworn systems used by roulette players for decades.

The second category of books is usually offered at higher prices on a limited basis, as through direct mail. These books or pamphlets usually offer one system that is guaranteed to beat the game. If you ever try to return one of these "sure-fire" winners you will usually find that the system seller can't be found.

Because roulette is a game of chance, where all wagers offer some mathematical advantage to the house, mathematicians say the game can't be beaten.

Yet, I know the game can be beaten. This book will offer you a new, exciting and proven approach to beating the roulette game, that has been proven time after time in LIVE Dealer casino sessions.

The paucity of reliable published information on effective betting strategies for roulette probably is the result of the blind acceptance of most gambling experts that in the long run no system can ever overcome a game where the casino has an advantage. The crux of this issue is how we define "long term." Any system will fail at some point if it is followed blindly to the bitter end regardless of the cost. However, if we break the "long run" into a series of many short runs, over which we have substantial control, then I believe the premise is false.

In a contest between the casino and a player using a really good system, I am convinced that the player can gain a definite edge, especially if the house edge is less than 5 percent.

Characteristic of all would be reputable books on casino gambling are discussions of the so-called gambler's ruin. These discussions are used as a basis for the assertion that in the long run it is impossible to overcome a negative expectancy, meaning a game where the odds favor the house.

A puzzling aspect of all of the analyses I have seen is that any system player is assumed to continue to blindly pursue his system until he loses all of his bankroll. It is on this premise that most systems are generally dismissed as being useless.

However, the proof that any system is bound to fail is usually based on a computerized betting simulation of possible outcomes. These simulations are unrealistic in that they can't test what skillful handing of a gaming contest will entail Individuals have a number of options that simulations do not consider. A player may quit at the "right time." He may adjust or change his bet selection methods to respond to changing conditions in the game he is playing. He may raise or lower his bets as circumstances indicate. He has the option of pulling off losing tables, with only modest losses. Conversely, he may go for blood during winning sessions. He may lock up profits and limit losses.

The Maximum Advantage Roulette Strategy combines many of these "player strengths" to reduce the house edge to close to zero. Then, using specific betting strategies, the player can actually gain an advantage over the house. The result is that the player can win far higher amounts much more consistently than conventional analysis of roulette would predict.

After you learn how to use correct strategy to play the game, you will learn to apply a set of betting rules. These rules may seem a little complicated when you first read them, but they are easy to use and highly effective. Once you have absorbed how to play and what to do under different circumstances, and practiced your skills to make sure that you can play under casino conditions, you will be ready to take on the casinos.

Once you learn how to play and beat the game, there will be no holding you back. You will know how to make wagers that offer a minimum edge or "vig" to the casinos and how to set specific win targets, prevent losses and walk away from nearly all roulette sessions a net winner.

You can literally use the Maximum Advantage Roulette Strategy to get rich playing roulette. If you want to make $1,000 a day gambling, this is the strategy for you. Once you start winning at roulette, it is like coining your own money. The casino chips will pile up in front of you, and you will find that the casino personnel will even offer many comps to you.

"Comps" are casino jargon for complmentaries, and if you follow my advice and use the Maximum Advantage Roulette Strategy correctly, you will not only beat the casinos, but you will have the casino bosses fawning on you offering you free meals, free rooms, show tickets and even offering to pay your airfare.

If you want to learn to play roulette professionally, you have come to the right place. Once you learn to apply this powerful strategy, you will have a way to consistently beat the casinos. Best of all, there is nothing they can do to stop you!

Skillful blackjack players always run the risk of being barred from playing. In Nevada, card counters have been treated like card cheats or criminals in the past simply because they were applying their skill to beat a casino game.

With roulette play, you will never have to worry about being barred because of your skillful play. When you start to pull down huge wins, all the bosses can do is sweat and pay you off. If you are a high roller, you can take the casino for thousands of dollars in just a few minutes using the Maximum Advantage Roulette Strategy and there's nothing the house can do about it. If you are a low roller, I will show you how you can use your casino winnings to vault into the high roller category in a short time period.

This book will show you exactly how to become and stay a consistent winner at roulette. The process of becoming a winning roulette player was aptly described in a jewel of a book I discovered on one of my trips to Las Vegas. The Sealed Book of Roulette was published by "Billiken" in London in 1924. While some of his systems are too cumbersome to use at roulette as it is played now, his approach to beating the game has merit - There is a popular saying that figures can be made to '"prove anything." Critics usually say that mathematicians have proved over and over again that it is impossible to win at Roulette. This sweeping assertion is incorrect. The skilled mathematician invariably deals with theory, not practice, but when he develops the -nth sense, and differentiates between probability and possibility, he will discover that the player can defeat the operation of zero [the house edge] and secure a small but safe percentage of profit...

The steady player, like a good Bridge hand, controls himself and invariably wins.

In writing this book, I realize that the readers will be a diverse group. Some of you will never have played the game. Others will have played the game but may not understand all of the wagers and payoffs. Regardless of your level of play, this book will teach you how to win.

By the time you finish reading, you are going to know more about roulette than most persons involved in the game, including casino managers, pit bosses and dealers. I know that you will put this knowledge to good use.
