Honest Bender: iron_city_ap: He would wait till a streak of colors would pop up (usually 5) then bet on the opposite color.Tumunga: you have to keep playing that color...I weep for the lack of education in this country. :-(
Marcus Aurelius: Rule number 1: Never bet against the house.Rule number 2: Never bet against the house.Rule number 3: Never bet against the house.
Obama4Life: If it shows 5 red, the next ball can be either red, black, or green. There is no mathmatical law that says it has to hit a certian color
madgonad: See, while you might walk out of a casino with a few hundred dollars twenty times, on the twenty first you might lose $10k. High chance of small win, but a small chance of a big loss.
Tumunga: wildcardjack: To win at roulette own the wheel.It's pretty easy to win money at the roulette wheel. As long as you're willing to grind it out, and have deep pockets, you'll walk away winning every time. Pick a color, black or red, and for the sake of this tutorial, bet $5. The key is to just play one color, don't change. If your color comes up, take the $5 you won, put it in your pocket, and leave the original bet there on the table. Keep doing this until you lose. Here's where the deep pockets come in. When you lose, you have to double the bet you lost, then play again. Lose $5, bet $10. Lose $10, bet $20. You might hit on a losing streak with the color, but you have to keep playing that color, so doubling your bet every time you lose can start adding up. Once you win one of those big bets, you take all the money off the table, except for the original $5 bet, and put it in your pocket.If you do this, you won't lose any money (unless you leave the table on a losing streak) and grind your way to a profit. My wife and I did this in an Indiana casino, and after about 40 minutes, walked away from the table with about $60 in our pockets at a $5 minimum table. We did hit one of those losing streaks with a $160 bet on the table, and I had to make a dash for the ATM, but she hit while I was gone, and the ATM trip was for nothing.Some drunk douche was watching us, and after noticing what we were doing, hollered, "Hey! They got a system going on, look!" My wife gave him a look that I thought was reserved for me if I told her she looked fat in her jeans. He shut up.

C18H27NO3: The Eudaemons did exactly this in the late 70's.The book The Eudaemonic Pie is a good read about what they did.
Jenna Tellya: I could see this being easier to do on the Money Wheel. No chaotic bouncing, just a straightforward velocity reduction formula. It seems easy enough to determine whether the wheel will stop near the joker or not. That might be enough to overcome the horrible odds that bet offers. Maybe they don't give enough time to calculate and bet after they spin it?
Metalupis: I seem to recall watching a show on the history channel about cheating in Vegas that talked about some guys who did this years ago, they would press on a switch hidden in one shoe when the ball was passing a certain point and it would calculate likely outcomes and the part in their other shoe would signal them by prodding their foot in a particular pattern
