      Strategies based on statistics and observations of the table almost never work; the odds are massively stacked against them. Besides, they are redundant (and actually have been for years). Why? Custom-built computers using Netwonian physics algorithms can now be purchased. True, you can't take them into casinos (at least, not openly), but they do offer up to 44% over chance.

      For the whole story, read 'The Eudaemonic Pie' (a.k.a.  'The Newtonian Casino) by Thomas Bass, ISBN 0-595-14236-2. This is the book that inspired my own lottery method based on recurrence analysis.

        Roulette is the only game in a casino I'll play, besides blackjack.  The only way I'll play Roulette is when I'm at a blackjack table and hear a sustained lot of noise coming from a Roulette table indicating some one is on a major run.

        I pick up my chips and mosey over to where the action is, then when I've confirmed what's happening I begin topping the bets of the person who can't lose for this little while.

        When his run dies off I go back to the blackjack table.

            There's a good excuse for 18 year olds not to play casino games.... they aren't at the minimum legal age. 

            The rest of us, mostly, would be a lot better served using the same excuse if we had it.

            The only casino game you stand a middling chance of winning at over the long haul (besides those rare events I described in my last post involving roulette) is blackjack.  But it takes thousands of hands to learn the game well enough to have a hope of winning at it..... thousands more of losing a lot before you're likely to develop an understanding that sidesteps what the 'experts' on every table will  tell you about how to win.  Then you have to put up with being at a table most of the time with a lot of people who think it's funny to ask if they can double down on a blackjack, who flip verbal dung at the dealer, who generally just aren't the sort of people you take joy at being around unless you're willing to work at that, also.

            Get yourself a Millenium Gamepack at the walmart store, comp usa, office depot, the one with animated blackjack on it..... and play until you can win enough to break even.  That's what I'd suggest if I was making suggestions, which I ain't, and I'd follow it with a suggestion that you stay the hell out of any casino until you can win on the computer.

            Just my old gambler viewpoint talking.
