NEW SYSTEM FOR ROULETTE

I have devised a system for playing roulette which gives a pretty chance of leaving from the table richer than you arrived. No doubt it has already been thought of and some fatal flaw discovered which my poor brain could not detect. If so, please accept my apologies for wasting your time. If not, please read through what follows and give it a try. If it works, please post here and let everyone know - that will be payment enough. If it fails, please post here and let everyone know!

Background

The game of roulette relies on the spin of a wheel bearing 37 numbers (in the French version) or 38 (American). My system does not care which version you play, so please substitute the correct details for your location. I am in France, so I use the French notation.

When the wheel is spun, a ball is introduced and eventually comes to rest on one of the numbers. In this way can the winners be determined. There are many ways to bet on the result, but my systems assumes you will bet on a single number unswervingly until you win. After winning, the system is reset and you may choose another number.

Mathematical basis

In this scenario, you have a 1/37 chance of matching the winning number. If you do so, your stake is returned to you, along with winnings of 35 times your stake. Thus in total you receive back 36 times your stake. Over time, you have a return of 36/37, that is YOU LOSE ! The trick is to win in the meantime...

The approach I have taken is to calculate at each spin of the wheel the sum of cash flows in the 2 cases - case 1, you fail to match the winning number and your money is taken; case 2, you win. In this way can we see the necessary level of stake for the next bet to ensure that when your number is eventually correct so you have made a profit during your stay at the table. If these calculations are correctly performed, you will be certain that once you have eventually won on a certain spin, then the total you have lost will at worst be equivalent in value to the pile of chips the croupier pushes towards you.

Limitations

Of course, the chances of winning on average are 1/37 - that is, if you stay at the table for more than 37 spins, you _should_ see your number come up. However, that's life: sometimes your number won't come up for a very long time.

I have assumed that you are able to play in chips of 1 currency unit and that you have a stack of 1000 currency units in front of you.

With this method, you can survive at the table 139 unsuccessful spins in succession and still make an overall profit of 19 units on the 140th play. A return on capital of <2%, but tax-free and you had a very good time.

If you only have 100 currency units, you can survive 62 unsuccessful spins in succession and still make an overall profit of 9 units on the 63rd play.

If your number doesn't come up by the 140th spin, the gods hate you and you should go home!

How it works

Let us work through the example of the first 10 spins:

A--- B---- C----- | D------ E--------- F------------

Spin Stake Spent | Paid Stake back Profit if won so far | on win on win (= D + E - C)

---- ----- ------ | ------- ---------- -------------

1 1 1 | 35 1 35

2 1 2 | 35 1 34

3 1 3 | 35 1 33

4 1 4 | 35 1 32

5 1 5 | 35 1 31

6 1 6 | 35 1 30

7 1 7 | 35 1 29

8 1 8 | 35 1 28

9 1 9 | 35 1 27

10 1 10 | 35 1 26

It can be seen that the profit diminishes by 1 each spin and then let us move ahead to the 36th spin:

A--- B---- C----- | D------ E--------- F------------

Spin Stake Spent | Paid Stake back Profit if won

so far | on win on win (= D + E - C)

---- ----- ------ | ------- ---------- -------------

36 1 36 | 35 1 0

This is break even - the stake must be increased

37 2 38 | 70 2 34

38 2 40 | 70 2 32

and then move ahead again to the 54th spin:

A--- B---- C----- | D------ E--------- F------------

Spin Stake Spent | Paid Stake back Profit if won so far | on win on win (= D + E - C)

---- ----- ------ | ------- ---------- -------------

54 2 72 | 70 2 0

This is break even - the stake must be increased

55 3 75 | 105 3 33

56 3 78 | 105 3 30 ...and so on.

Clearly, the effect of increasing the stake at periodic intervals allows the player to always have a profitable result when his number eventually comes up. The frequency table is as follows:

That's all there is to it - play well and have fun!
