In a perfect world, everything would be logical. But that’s not our reality, and it’s something you can use to your advantage in online casinos. Most people have some awareness of statistics, even if the last time they studied it was years ago at school.
It’s pretty common knowledge, for example, that the chances of a spinning coin landing on heads is exactly 50 per cent, the same as for tails. We know, though, that if a coin comes up heads one time, the law of averages doesn’t instantly kick in to force it to be tails the next time. It’s only over a longer period that we can see the two options coming out at around 50 per cent. If we spin a coin 1000 times, say, we can pretty confidently predict it will come up heads very close to 500 times.
The way to make this work in our favour in an online casino is to think counter-intuitively.
It’s something that works best on a roulette table, where you get options that are as near as dammit 50 per cent. That’s odds, evens, 1-18, 19-36, red, black. The only fly in the ointment as far as making it a true 50 per cent shot is the presence of the zero (and double zero on American tables, which I would personally avoid). The statistics here state that out of every 37 spins, 18 should be red, 18 should be black and one should be zero.
There are two areas to concentrate on and use reverse logic. Firstly, the law of averages suggests that if 22 comes up on one spin, it won’t come up again for a long while. But anyone who has spent any time playing roulette knows that’s not the reality. It’s always worth putting a chip on the number that has just won because although it defies logic it pays off more times than not.
The other tactic to use is to ride streaks. If black has come up five times in a row, the law of averages almost demands it should be red next time. But sometimes a table has its own logic and it can be worth sticking with black in that situation.
Roulette is possibly one of the most standout games played in a casino because of its unique spinning wheel. It's also one of the loudest. The way the game of Roulette is played is by throwing a metal ball into the spinning wheel and placing bets on the numbers in which the ball will land on.
