If you enjoy gambling chances are at some point you’ll have visited casinos. They are places I really enjoy and have visited them all over the world. Online roulette gambling now attempts to bring this experience into the comfort of you home.
Now to be honest the experience of an online casino doesn’t really compare in my eyes – the glitzy glamour of a casino can’t be replaced by a monitor and some terrible background music piped through your speakers. Nevertheless it can be an extremely fun experience.
A note about odds and chance
When you visit a casino and play real roulette – there are certain things that you take for granted.
For instance you know you will be at a disadvantage because the zero on the wheel ensures the bank has the advantage but remember the more slots the bigger your disadvantage – American roulette wheels generally have two ’0′s as well.
The main advantage though is your game is completely at the whim to the fickle finger of chance and luck. The spin of a roulette wheel is subject to so many random factors that the result (if not tampered with obviously) is completely unknown to both bank and player. You can use the stupidest casino system in the world but if you’re lucky – you’ll win !
The online casino though is operated through computer software and complicated algorithms – they will never be as completely random as real-life casinos. That’s not to say it should affect the player – the pseudo random numbers that are generated are pretty close to being completely random. Your success still ultimately depends on the virtual spin of a wheel. If you pick a large respected online casino you’ll be fine – an honest casino always makes money anyway whereas the merest sniff of a suspect algorithm can send an online casino out of business.
Watch out for suspicious tactics like a free play mode where you always seem to win though.
There are many people who make their living nowadays in online roulette gambling – although I’m not sure it’s a lifestyle I’d enjoy. The simple fact that online roulette is governed by a computer algorithm has led people to investigate weaknesses in algorithms that allows the player some advantages.
I am currently checking one such product that analyses and predicts the most profitable bets. It only works on outside bets – that is unfortunately it won’t predict specific numbers. It is very simple to use with any online casino though.
