How the Roulette 666 Strategy Can Work? By Nicholas Colon
Recently I published an article on why the 666 Strategy is not good for beating Roulette.
The conclusions in that article were that, mathematically it just doesn’t work out, and over the long term the player is destined to lose all of their money. I began thinking about it a little more to see if there could be an approach where by the player can employ the Roulette 666 Strategy and ascertain a positive expectation.
The reason it is called the 666 strategy is because the numbers on a Roulette Wheel (1-36 and 0 & 00 for the American Wheel) add up to be 666. some people see this as proof that gambling is inherently evil.
How Can You Win With the Paroli System By Frank Scoblete
In this article I am going to show you a step by step Paroli system that can be used to “up, up and away” with your wins. This Paroli system can be used at online casinos, land-based and cruise ship casinos. Prepare to win a bundle!
The Paroli is a positive betting system which means you only increase bets after a win. Most betting systems, such as the dreaded Martingale, are ones where you increase your bets after a loss hoping to recover all your money should you win a decision. These are known as negative betting systems.
The negative systems will win you many small amounts but they come crashing down on your head should you lose even short streaks of between seven and nine wagers. The house limit can’t be passed and bad streaks will wipe you out.
Why Not Mimic the Dealer's Playing Strategy? By Henry Tamburin PH.D.
A blackjack player once asked me this question: “Every time I play blackjack against the dealer, he always seems to beat me. So why shouldn’t I just mimic the dealer’s strategy?” That’s a good question and to answer it you first have to understand two things:
1. How to play blackjack 2. How the casinos get their edge in blackjack in the first place.
Advantage Player Tips: How Much of a Bankroll Do You Need? By Nicholas Colon
A common question I get from aspiring professional advantage players is how much of a starting bankroll do I need to become a professional advantage player?
Stated another way, they want to know the minimum amount of a bankroll they need to give them a good chance of success.
The simplest answer is an infinite bankroll. But since most players don’t have an infinite bankroll we have to find more reasonable answer. However, there is no straight forward answer to this question and its answer is different for each person.
There are certain things to consider when you are answering this question. In short, it depends on severable variables.
Card Counting the Super Six Baccarat Side Bet By Eliot Jacobson Ph.D.
The way baccarat usually operates, a winning Banker wager is charged a 5% commission, creating a house edge on the Banker bet of about 1.0579%. Another way of saying this is that a winning Banker wager pays 19-to-20. As commissions are collected and accounted, this challenging payout causes the game to slow down, losing profit for the house. One solution to this problem is to offer a "commission free" variation. These commission free versions work by choosing a rare winning Banker hand and not paying it full value. The two most common commission free variations (both public domain) are the following:
Commission Free Variation #1: Banker winning three card seven is a push. House edge = 1.0183%.
Commission Free Variation #2: Banker winning total of six. House edge = 1.4581%.
The first version has been known for a long time as EZ Baccarat. However, in 2013 the patent on this rule expired and other companies marketed the game under their own brands. In particular, Shuffle Master started pushing its Fortune 7 baccarat. Regardless, the big question is why any casino would want to offer a version of baccaratwith a lower house edgethan standard baccarat? By reducing the edge from 1.0579% to 1.0183%, the casino directly gives up profit. However, this profit is recouped in two ways. First, because the game is non-commission, it will move faster. Second, this version has a very popular side bet that almost always accompanies it on the table.
It’s one thing to play blackjack at an advantage. It’s quite another to indulge in the game when sitting alongside James Grosjean.
A Harvard graduate with a specialty in applied math, adeptness at computer programming and the kind of astute mind that makes him into every casino’s worst nightmare, Grosjean ranks among the world’s most successful gamblers and a living blackjack legend. He always plays with a considerable advantage, laughs at card counters who are thrilled by garnering measly two-percent edges: “They are the equivalent of salamanders and I am a fully formed human”, he once told me, getting evolutionary and a little cocky – and thrills at the act of reverse engineering seemingly unbeatable casino offerings. Employing proprietary software, he writes computer programs that play the games and aid him in figuring out how to beat them. Ultimately, Grosjean crushes gambling dens in ways that few others imagine to be possible.
Since 1996 online casinos have been growing in popularity and are now in heavy competition with their pre internet counter parts. Some like online casinos and others prefer the traditional land-based casino environment.
Each variation has their positive and negative aspects. I’ll approach the each evaluation from multiple angels; the casual player, the aspiring professional and the seasoned pro.
