more fun to use is reversed martingale

you come to the table with \$1, if you lose you quit.
if you win you double up until you lose

that's a ~0,5% (1 in 200) chance to get \$128 with just a \$1 initial investment every time you come to the table!
if your table has only one 0 (wth?) then your odds dramatically improve to about ~0,6%! (like 1 in 155)

[...]
9. You will start losing on the draw 72
doesn't make sense

It make sense ,

Let's say that you hit the number on 71 draw . The Calculations up to this point are :

1+2+3+...+69+70+71 =2556 Amount invested

36*71 = 2556 Amount won

Profit = 0

One step further :

1+2+3+...+70+71+72= 2628 Amount invested
36*72 = 2592 Amount won

Profit = - 36

I find it difficult to understand how someone can enjoy losing, whether they can afford it or not, but maybe that's just my personal situation and experiences showing through.

It may be possible to have fun losing at games I suppose, but surely it's more fun to win? In most cases at least

Perhaps you should look at it as paying for entertainment.

Few years ago, there was a mathematical system to use on the William Hill machines (in the booking shop I mean) and it was working as I was making a regular daily income (we say something like 10 GBP x 10 minutes); it was genuine like that

Unfortunately, I arrive just in the end (as the system was around for a while by the time I get it) and WH don't know how, get it and developed a new machine that was replace the old (lovely) machines in all the booking shop cross UK.

At today, I m not aware of any new so powerful system

Yup, that's the way. Like roulette myself but bet a little that I can afford for the fun.

Not bad a strategy. I've been trying some of these out this weekend at 888 casino... da-vinci roulette calculator, roulette number and roulette banker to be precise.

Roulette number is really bad. I lost a fair amount of cash with it. Anyone tried it?

Da-Vinci roulette calculator and roulette banker were really good though. If it wasn't for those roulette number would have totally cleaned me out lol.

Today I just bought roulette sniper so we will see how that goes Keep your fingers crossed for me lol.

Hi jessicax,

Welcome to PokerStrategy.com.

Anyone playing with the idea of playing roulette needs to read these two articles on wikipedia:
Martingale
Gambler's fallacy
Ok, you don't have to read them.
I'll sum up:

You can't win

No system, no betting strategy, no table selection no anything can ever make up for the fact that the house takes a percentage of ever spin.

In the long run, your own wins and losses will even out, but the the house percentage just keeps adding up.

Now POKER on the other hand is quite a different story.
Since YOU control the cards you play, and how you play them, you can avoid spots where the odds are against you, and bet big when they are in your favour.

That is what this site is all about -- maximizing your poker winnings.

Let's leave roulette to James Garner...

Peace,
