The system you use to beat the wheel at roulette cannot beat the house edge. The house edge is built into the rules of the game deliberately. Still many people search and try to find a system to beat the game whilst others stick with using their own roulette strategy. Let’s look at both of these options individually.

### Systems

Yes you read that right, you can’t beat the house edge with any roulette system. This is the house edge. A system is a pattern or a mathematical formula, that allows you to predict the pocket a ball will land in the wheel. However the house edge is built in, as you can’t predict the pocket, so why bother trying?

Roulette systems are usually based on the fact that roulette is a game of chance and you may have heard this before, but it’s still a bit of a shocker to use it as a system when you play at the casino. If the wheel was actually Random, then the chances of you winning the game would be exactly the same as if you were throwing a coin into a hat.

Over time a series of changes have been made to the roulette wheel, making it harder to beat the game, however there are strategies used to make it easier. The most famous of these changes is the addition of double zero roulette wheels. Double zero wheels decrease the advantage the house has when you have roulette and also increase the odds evenly.

There are two parts to roulette, the table and the wheel. The table is where you sit and place your bets. The wheel is where the ball eventually lands. When you call out certain numbers or lines, you are hoping the ball lands on or near those numbers.

Other than the outcome of the ball falling on a particular number and color, there are other outcomes that are possible. If the ball falls on a zero, you may have an automatic win, profit, or loss, depending on the casino rules. Some casinos have a rule that the player may have to show his or her bet to the croupier or dealer of the table in order to be counted.

Regardless of whether you win, lose, cashing, or stand, the game continues. The wheel spins again and the ball is again set loose in the hopes that it will eventually fall on the same number and color.

The notion of the game of roulette is both simple and fun. Still it is sometimes misleading to say that the only goal of roulette is to go from rags to riches, but the contrary is always the case. The false perception that the sole objective of the game is to cash may cause many players to never achieving their goal of rags to riches.

The best advice that can be offered to any potential roulette player is that, before you develop a gambling strategy, quit playing for short or long terms. Playing for long periods, increases the house edge significantly, which is bad news for anyone that wants to cash in big time.
