I went absolutely crazy! I screamed and pumped my fists, hollering and running up and down aisle as dealer paid me $440 on my $40 bet - eleven to one - and floor supervisor tried in vain to get me to calm down. My family was in as much disbelief as I was that I had such a dramatic comeback.
Just like that, I got my money back! I tipped dealer $5 leaving me with exactly as much money as I came with. I'll take a draw over a loss any day! On that note, we left and headed home. Dinner that night was on me.
It'd be irresponsible of me to recommend you try something like this on a regular basis. American roulette has a house edge of 5.26%, so over long run this move will lose you more money than you'll win - theoretically 5.26% of what you bet. Roulette's not best game to play if you plan on sticking around table for hours and hours because of this house advantage. For a single spin, however, it's pretty much a given that you're relying on luck, so house edge really doesn't matter as much.
If you do choose to try this out next time your back's against wall, here are some recommendations:
It's better to bet in a way so that you get just enough to be even for day as opposed to trying to hit a home run, so to speak. If you're down $350, try betting $10 on a number straight up for a possible 35-1, or $45 on a corner (4-number) bet which would pay 8-1. Sure, you could win more if you bet, say, $25 straight up on one number and it hits, but odds of it happening are a bit on long side, and you'd be down that much more money if play didn't hit.
Consider this type of play a last resort. If it doesn't work first time, don't try it again! If you do, you could easily be caught in trap of chasing your money, where your bets would get bigger and bigger with hopes of hitting just once. Rarely does a bank-chasing situation have a happy ending.
A blind-luck roulette play could very well get you through your next day at casino, but here hoping it doesn't come down to all that.
Until next time, take care and good luck in casino!...Read More:Roulette: The Game of Remarkable Comebacks
