The classic single zero game may offer better odds to the gambler, but the casino maintains an edge all the same; all roulette players will lose given enough time.

The lack of a double-zero space is why European Roulette wheels are far superior to American ones: having one space fewer means the house edge is significantly lower, and statistically speaking, you should win more often on European Roulette wheels.

- Experience this different, but great format of roulette

For wagers on single numbers, American Roulette wheels offer a 38-1 chance of winning. European Roulette wheels give you a 37-1 chance thanks to the lack of the double-zero spot.

Since the game’s actual payout for individual number bets is 35-1, we can quickly calculate the house edge at 5.26% and 2.63% for the American and European games respectively.

Playing roulette with no zero or double-zero slot drops the house advantage to 0.0%. The result is that you can expect what experienced gamblers call ‘straight’ or ‘true’ odds.

Math tells us that playing no zero roulette indefinitely would result in you breaking even. The appeal of the online roulette no zero wheel is hitting that elusive winning streak, which (combined with a 0% house edge) could really put cash in your bankroll.

It’s worth saying that not many Internet casinos offer roulette with no zero in 2018, and at time of writing, no land-based casinos offer the game either.

If you place a wager on red, you can expect an even payout should the wheel produce a red number. Since the odds of the ball landing on red are a little less than average, over the long run the house edge means (mathematically speaking) that roulette players will always lose out.

But in roulette with no zero, the math shifts a little. No zero spaces means any bets on red have a 50% chance of winning. That means given infinite time and money, you will break even playing on an online roulette no zero wheel.

That’s why more casinos don’t host no zero games; they’re simply not as profitable. Casinos that do have zero-free roulette tend to place extreme limits on your maximum bet size in order to protect their interests.

Another reason zero free roulette doesn’t scare some casinos is a concept called “the risk of ruin”.

Let’s pretend two people are flipping a coin and are betting on the outcome: 50/50 odds, just like with no zero online roulette wheels.

Every time the coin comes up heads, one player pays the other $1, while every time the coin comes up tails the other player gets paid $1 by the loser. Assuming the game is being played with a real coin and not a loaded or trick coin, neither of them will have an edge over the other, unless one has more money than the other. If player 1 has $10,000 in his pocket and player 2 has only $10, player 2 will be out of money long before player 1, and player 1 will have made money on the proposition.

American Roulette and European Roulette wheels are negative expectation games. Wheels without a zero aren’t negative expectation games, but thanks to limited bet sizes and the ‘risk of ruin’ concept, it isn’t possible to drain a casino of all its cash, thanks mostly to your limited wallet.

]]>Since it is a near-memory-less system (unless it is rigged; however, in theory every electro-mechanically built system is not perfectly memory-less; but that’s a story for another day) and therefore causality cannot be expressed.

]]>- The probability that the ball eventually ends up in one of the slots depends on how many slots there are: They are 37 (in French/European roulette) or 38 (in American roulette) colored and numbered pockets on the wheel.
- If you were simply betting on red, and if there were only black or red slots, then you would be winning with a 50% chance.
- You can run a simulation. Starting with 100 dollars, if you put 10 dollars on only red, then your 10 will become 20 if the ball goes in a red slot, and becomes zero if it goes in the black.
- Keep playing this way, and eventually you would actually run out of all the cash. You can certainly double your money, if you were lucky.
- There was once I was playing this way, and was only randomly choosing red or black, and ten times in a row I won. My cash went from about 100 to 270. In one or two of the attempts, I had also put some money on first 12. Then eventually I lost 10 dollars, and walked away from the table. But it was purely luck, and there was absolutely no strategy.

- There can actually be absolutely no strategy on Roulette. The odds are only against you.
- Some people try to come up with strategies like these: Every time it has hit three blacks, I will put money on red. That is meaningless.
- Some others try to come up with strategies like: bet in geometric progression: That is also meaningless. First, they will not allow you to do it, and second, the table is always capped with an upper limit.

- There was once I was in Vegas, and I talked to a person who was on a roulette table. It was late night and I was in no mood to play. I asked him to tell me his best stories. Usually people love to share their life’s best stories.
- He told me following (you should read with a pinch of salt, but these can be true):
- There was once in his life time he had seen the ball going to different red spots 49 times in a row. They were all different and random, but they were all red. A lot of people lost some serious cash on that table that day, because every time it would go to one more red, they would put some serious money on the blacks, and they kept losing.
- There was once a guy was doing series bets with geometric betting. It goes like this:
- Put 10 dollars.
- Win? Put 10 dollars again. Repeat.
- Lose?
- Put 20 dollars. Win? Put 10 dollars again and repeat.
- Keep doing this all the way as 10 → 20 → 40 →80→ 160. But note that Roulette tables are capped, so you cannot keep going like this. They will simply say no. And what is one of your losing bets is on 160? All that cash is gone. That happened with the guy. He kept winning for almost 3 hours in a row, but eventually it hit the green slot, and he lost a major bet. Then he just walked away.

*Words of caution: *The odds are against you. You are far better off not playing it to double your money. You can play it for fun, and you can win a little sometimes Sure it does give some adrenaline rush.

Also, you would learn more in your life, if you actually take a probability class in your school, work out some probability numbers, simulations in Python, and developing your own version of digital roulette, than to actually ever play roulette.

]]>This version of roulette is only available through a select number of online casinos. To find an online casino that offers this new and exciting form of one the most popular table games around please see our pages dedicated to no zero roulette. We’ll be able to help find the right casino for you.

No zero roulette has a slightly different table layout in that at the end of the number columns you will not find a zero or a double zero. Otherwise the table layout is the same, offering single number, column, row, odd/even, red/black, and other familiar roulette bets. The payouts are still the same, including 35-1 on a single number wager.

How much you spend on a spin is dependent upon a few factors. The first is the size of your bankroll and the second are the minimum and maximum bets allowed. A rule of thumb in bankroll management is that on any one turn you should bet between 5% and 10% of your bank that’s been set aside for that betting session.

As an example, if you planned to risk up to $100 for a session at the roulette wheel and if you decide to spend 5% of your bank on any turn, you would make bets totaling no more than $5.00 on any one spin. You would then have a total of 20 spins available before you would either have to win or lose your bankroll. If you went with 10%, you’d wager $10 per spin and have 10 spins total before you would either have to win or your bankroll would be spent. The less you spend on a spin of the wheel the lower your risk on any given turn.

Roulette wheels vary as to minimums and maximum bets per turn. Common minimums are $1, $5, or $10 per spin. Due to the fact that there is no house edge for no zero roulette, maximums are lower than they are for American or European roulette. Each online casino determines both maximum and minimum bets allowed.

One of the attractions of no zero roulette is that it does not have a house edge. European roulette with one zero has a house edge of 2.68, while American roulette, which includes a zero and a double zero, comes with a house edge of 5.26. Those edges translate into casinos keeping $2.68 of every $100 bet on European roulette and $5.26 of every $100 wagered on American. Plus, the addition of one zero and of the zero and double zero respectively are in no way reflected in the single number payouts, which are 35-1 on either 37 or 38 numbers. Eliminating those green zeros, gives players a much better chance of winning any and every type of roulette bet that they can make, but it is especially helpful for players who like to wager on outside bets, which offer less risk.

Most casinos provide access to no zero through their online website via their download version. However, some Internet-based casinos offer mobile and tablet access through APPs. If the casino provides no zero online, then there’s a good chance they will have the same version of this popular game available via a mobile device or tablet.

No zero roulette is not available at any brick-and-mortar casino and it is not offered in an online live version at gambling sites. European, French, and American roulette are the types of roulette that may be played with a live dealer.

Yes, online roulette is available in free play mode. Playing in the free mode allows gamblers to get used to the game and to adjust from having played European, French, or American roulette. Take some time to play no zero online for free prior to playing for real money. When playing in the free mode set a total bankroll limit for the session, play unit bets, and track your winnings and losses. This will give you a good idea of how solid your bankroll management skills are.

]]>One of the key traits of roulette is that it is subject to the so-called **law of independent trials**. This is not the case with other iconic casino games like blackjack where each hand you play (as well as your decisions how to play it) affects the outcome of subsequent hands. For instance, imagine you are dealt two Aces in a single-deck game. The chances of receiving another Ace if you hit are somehow reduced by the fact you are already holding two out of four Aces.

This, however, is not the case in roulette where **all outcomes are actually independent of one another**. This means that each outcome is neither affected by previous results nor does it influence any results that follow. That is to say, there is no way for players to obtain any handy information from previous spins that would enable them to predict correctly the results on subsequent spins.

The randomness of outcomes in land based roulette results from the random arrangement of the numbers on the wheel, which are not ordered sequentially. Such is the case in online roulette as well. The conclusion is that each of the 37 numbers on a European roulette wheel has equal chances of being spun as the rest. The odds of hitting any individual number would always be 36 to 1 as there are 36 ways to lose the bet and only a single number which guarantees a win. Similarly, if you have won with Black on the last round, the probability of hitting black again on the very next spin will remain the same despite this – 19 to 18.

Meanwhile, it is of equally great importance for players to understand that **the spins in roulette are statistically related to a certain extent**. While it is not impossible for Black to hit a thousand times in a row, this is highly unlikely to happen from statistical point of view. It all has to do with how much you play and how many outcomes are factored in.

This is called the Law of Large Numbers (also known as the Law of Averages) and it dictates that the frequencies of events, which have the same probability of occurring, tend to even out provided that enough trials are at hand. When it comes to probability, enough trials equals millions of times, though. Thus, if you play one million spins betting on Red/Black, roughly half of the time, you will get Red while the other half, you will hit Black. This will not be the case if you play only ten spins in roulette.

Some people tend to mistakenly use an insignificant number of trials to illustrate the Law of Averages, which is known as **the Gambler’s Fallacy**. For instance, one such person would win with an Odd number bet four times in a row which would lead them to believe they are supposed to bet on Even next time because an even number is “due” to come. They falsely assume the frequencies of Odd/Even outcomes have evened out. This is far from being true because each spin of the ball is an independent event and therefore, the actual probability of the Odd/Even outcomes will remain equal for the next spin and the spins to follow.

However, if that person bets on Odd/Even enough times (say one or two million times), the Law of Averages would have its say and the number of the two outcomes will become very close to equal, but not entirely, because of the additional zero pocket. Unfortunately, one will need quite a sizeable bankroll to undertake this experiment.
