Hey! To my eye it appears there's really something to this! Were there some 38 spoke carriage wheels around on the streets of Paris in 17th century France?



The original roulette wheel has no
zero, just 36 pockets.

Zeroes aren't needed. Just short pay winners.

Hmmm. Maybe all the more practical for a 17th century carriage wheel. But not so much for paying the kerosene bill in a Parisian casino without some arithmetic monkeying.

How do you feasibly pay a red or black winner? At 36 to 37?

Even with 1 or 2 zeroes on the wheel, youd be surprised how many people think they have a 50% chance of winning a red or black bet.

I think they're placed the same way you'd tighten lug nuts on a 38 lug wheel?



This makes some sense. When putting on a spare tire I have always just worked my around the wheel, tightening the lug nuts one after another around the circle, but I was probably doing it wrong.

I'm trying to find a pattern in the single-zero wheel, but am coming up with very little.

Two consecutive numbers are often 11 to 18 positions apart on the wheel, but that isn't saying much. There are also many exceptions, like the 28 and 29 are only two positions apart.

Thats why the really smart roullete players will tell you they bet on black/red AND green. Thus negating the house edge 😉

Yes, that is incorrect. It matters not where you start, but you tighten one most way then jump across and do that one halfway, then keep repeating, tightening the whole way the second time on each lug.

Unless you have a LeCar.

In the wheel pictured a few posts back,
the R/B and H/L are staggered around
the wheel, O/E seems to be ignored. I
still say this is to placate customers
that they will get a 'fair' spin, even
though it matters not where the numbers
are placed on the wheel, the outcome
will still be random.
