Roulette Inside Bet System

french_rouletteAs we already discussed, inside bets are those made directly on the main area of numbers. This bet category features straight-up bets (one number) paying 35 to 1 through line bets (six numbers) paying 5 to 1. Column bets, dozens bets and any bets paying even money are not encompassed.

Overdue Numbers

Many systems, which rely on inside bets, have as their basis the notion of the ”awakening sleeper”, or we may call it the concept of overdue numbers. Players using inside bet systems believe that in case a specific number has not been a winner for a while, it is ”overdue”. As the probability of success for any number on the roulette wheel is 1/38 (1 chance out of 38), it is commonly anticipated that every number will win on average once every 38 ball spins. In case a specific number has not won in 80 spins, for instance, it is overdue and may emerge as a winner soon enough, in order to conform with the ”law of averages”. However, one may put his/her trust in this ”law”, only if taking into account a long stretch of time. In terms of roulette, a long stretch may refer to thousands or even tens of thousands of ball spins.

Roulette Wheel Randomness

It is worth noting that if a certain number wins in rare cases or not at all, the reason for such an occurrence may probably be the following – the roulette wheel’s randomness is in question. It takes not much of an effort to make a roulette wheel, deliberately or by accident, favor or not particular numbers. In case the number 33 has not been a winner for a while, the possible reason for it may lie in routine maintenance, which led to the replacement of the pad at the bottom of the pocket. In case the replacement material is of different resilience, the ball may now jump out of that pocket more readily compared to other pockets on the wheel. As a result of this, the probability of success for number 33 could be considerably diminished. Therefore, it would be a lost cause to place a bet on this number, regardless of that the latter may always seem overdue.

Another important moment, which we noted earlier, is that a roulette wheel has no memory of past events. Each ball spin is an event, which has nothing to do with the past. If the roulette wheel is indeed random, the probability of success for a specific number still remains 1 out of 38, regardless of how long it has been since the last time this particular number emerged as a winner. If the number 33 won six times in the past 38 ball spins, that would be six times what was anticipated. However, the probability of the number 33 winning on the 39th ball spin remains precisely 1 out of 38, given that the roulette wheel has no bias.

One may ask what has become with the so called ”law of averages”. Does it still work? Let us presume that a month later the number 33 may not win for over 200 ball spins. After the first 90 spins have taken place, some players may begin placing bets on 33, as it seems overdue to them. It happens so, that 110 spins later the number 33 emerges as a winner. However, by that time all those players have already gone bankrupt. Thus, the ”law of averages” still remains valid.

So, what conclusion can be drawn? That every reasonable player will abstain from basing his/her inside bet system on the concept of overdue numbers.

Playing the System

Let us examine a betting method, which ”stretches” a player’s bankroll as far as possible and provides a better coverage than the constant 1-unit bet placement on one and the same number. The betting sequence is as follows: first, a player makes a dozens bet (which belongs to the outside bet category), then he/she places line bets, corner bets, split bets and straight-up bets. The progression is shown in the table below:

Bet Number Type of Bet Payout Bet Amount(Units) Net Loss Net Win
1 dozens 2 1 1 2
2 dozens 2 1 2 1
3 line 5 1 3 3
4 line 5 1 4 2
5 line 5 1 5 1
6 corner 8 1 6 3
7 corner 8 1 7 2
8 corner 8 1 8 1
9 split 17 1 9 9
10 split 17 1 10 8
11 split 17 1 11 7
12 split 17 1 12 6
13 split 17 1 13 5
14 split 17 1 14 4
15 split 17 1 15 3
16 split 17 1 16 2
17 split 17 1 17 1
18 straight-up 35 1 18 18
19 straight-up 35 1 19 17
20 straight-up 35 1 20 16
21 straight-up 35 1 21 15
. . . . . .
. . . . . .
34 straight-up 35 1 34 2
35 straight-up 35 1 35 1
36 straight-up 70 2 37 35
37 straight-up 70 2 39 33
38 straight-up 70 2 41 31
39 straight-up 70 2 43 29
40 straight-up 70 2 45 27

The line bet should be within the span of the dozens bet, the corner bet should be within the span of the line bet, the split bet should be within the span of the corner bet and finally, the straight-up bet should be on one of the two numbers in the split bet. This way the first straight-up bet (bet No.18) is included from the start. In case the player selects a particular number, but it does not win soon, this method would boost his/her chance to register a certain profit during the first 17 ball spins. As soon as the first win is scored, the betting sequence should be initiated again from the beginning. This method will eventually lead to a profit, no matter that it may be as modest as 1 unit. After every 35 spins the bet size should be doubled, as shown in the table. The player may modify the betting sequence by deleting lines, which pay one or two units. However, by doing this, he/she will need to begin placing 2-unit bets sooner. Last but not least, it is important to note that no matter what action a player may take, the overall odds remain unchanged.
