Roulette - An Easy MethodWritten by Tom McBroom
Here is a very simple method that gives you chance to win big if your numbers come up.
Although you cannot change odds against you in roulette, there is one way of betting that we recommend to make game a bit more exciting and perhaps increase your chances if your lucky.
Here is what you do: Bet $1 (or whatever amount you like) on each of five "action" numbers. "Action" numbers are numbers that are fairly evenly spaced around wheel. No matter where ball lands, it will be somewhere close to one of your numbers and - with a little luck - may land in one of your numbers. If it does, you lose your other four chips but win 35 chips, for a net win of 30. Not bad! If you get on a hot lucky streak, you may hit your numbers several times and end up a big winner.
