In casino gambling, sometimes even the most knowledgeable players turn to blind luck to make it through their day. Of course, luck can never be relied on; Either things will go the right way for you or they won’t. The great thing about casino gambling is that luck has to be with you only for a moment to make a difference in what could easily be a bad day.
Roulette is, in my opinion, the best game to play where you can turn blind luck into a great casino story to tell your friends.
Recently, my family dragged me to the Atlantic City casino.
I’m not going to lie to you – I’m not feeling very lucky and would rather stay at home. Since I was ‘forced’ to leave, my goal was to hide, play slow and steady, pass the time and grind it until my parents are ready to return home. I thought I had everything covered.
Well, I spent a little time at the table crap $ 10, but mostly I played $ 20 pie gow and then some $ 15 blackjack. I can’t get my whole life getting anything and instead of stepping on water, I’m bleeding money all afternoon. After about 4 hours I was down $ 435, which could have been worse but was definitely far from my desired result.
I was almost broke and ready to go home when I was reunited with my family. Suddenly I have a crazy idea. “I have to do one more thing before we go. I have to go to the roulette table. My family gave me an indifferent voice and followed, because they are mostly slot players and all table games are Greek to them.
The plan is to throw in a few more bucks and try to get back all the money lost in one shot. I go to math in my head as I walk over to the roulette table. I’m down $ 435, so I know a $ 40 bet on 11-1 can get me back to even. Hopefully.
I found the roulette table and gave the dealer $ 40, where he handed me 8 nickel red. I reached and put all the chips on ’28 Street ‘. (This is a three-point bet – either 28, 29 or 30 will win for me.) The dealer spins, I stand by the roulette wheel, and pray!
The ball slowed and bounced around the wheel for a few tense seconds as I rooted for one of my three points. It comes up to number 2 and stays there for a moment – and then goes down to slot number two.
Number 28, black, even.
I’m really crazy! I screamed and pumped my fists, screamed and ran up and down the aisle as the dealer paid me $ 440 on my $ 40 bet – eleven to one – and the floor supervisor tried in vain to keep me calm. My family was in as much disbelief as me that I had such a dramatic comeback.
Just like that, I got my money back! I got a $ 5 dealer tip leaving me with exactly as much cash as I came up with. I’ll take the draws of defeat every day! On that note, we left and went home. I was eating dinner that night.
It would be irresponsible of me to recommend that you try something like this on a regular basis. American roulette has a 5.26% house edge, so over the long run this move will lose more money than you would win – theoretically 5.26% of what you wager. Roulette isn’t the best game to play if you plan on hanging around the table for hours because of this house advantage. However, for one spin, that’s pretty much it considering that you’re counting on luck, so the house edge really doesn’t matter that much.
If you choose to try this the next time your back is against the wall, here are some recommendations:
Better to bet in a way so that you get enough to be even for the day as opposed to trying to hit a home run, so to speak. If you drop $ 350, try betting $ 10 on a straight-up number for a 35-1 chance, or $ 45 on a corner bet (4-number) that will pay out 8-1. Sure, you could win a lot more if you bet, say, $ 25 straight up on one number and it hits, but chances are it happens a little on the long side, and you’ll drop that more cash if drama doesn’t hit.
Consider this type of play a last resort. If it doesn’t work the first time, don’t try again! If you do, you can easily get caught in the trap of chasing your bankroll, where your stakes will get bigger and bigger with nutrition.pan hit only once. Rarely does a bank-chase situation have a happy ending.
A game of blind-luck roulette could very well get you through the next day at the casino, but here’s hoping it doesn’t come down to all of that.
