On this trip I spent a bulk of my gambling time playing roulette. This was also my first time playing roulette. My parents ended up meeting me in Vegas and my Dad taught me all about the game.
Most of the people who came over to play would utilize a simple, and often failing, “strategy” – put a stack of chips on a number. When you do this, you have 1/36th chance of winning. More often than not, they lost. Then, after that happened a couple times, they quit and walk away. This usually happened after 10-15 minutes.
I learned how to stay in the game. The way to do this is to bet in zones and on the lines and corners. When you do this, you’re increasing the odds of winning. Even though the payoffs can be smaller, there’s a greater likelihood of winning thus keeping you in the game longer through incremental wins.
