Is roulette fixed?
To explain in more detail, what the above answerers haven’t told you is that casinos don’t pay true odds. They don’t need to fix or cheat at the game to win in the long run. In other words, if you had 1-36 numbers on a wheel, they should pay you 36x your bet, right? WRONG….they only pay you 35x your bet. The difference is the house edge or odds. They don’t have to cheat to win; in the long run they keep the difference between what they should pay you v. what they ACTUALLY pay you. Another example, 1/2 the numbers on the wheel are even; 1/2 are odd. 1/2 are red and 1/2 are black. So they pay you even money on your bet on any of these, right? However, because in most American casinos, there are two other numbers -0- and -00- which if the ball falls into these slots, you lose any of those four bets. So instead of having a 18/36 (even) chance of winning, you actually only have an 18/38 chance of winning, with the casino pocketing the odds/spread in their favor. Roulette is not a great ga
