my system is to get really, really good at guessing

Dang it, Mosca, you stole my system! I forgive you though. I gave up on that system some years ago when I started to lose money. I must have gotten rusty or careless with my guessing the roulette numbers, so I changed over to guessing the dice faces, and now I'm using it as a winning strategy at craps.

Hey, there are some guys who are really good at it. Warren Buffett. I think you have to be better than 1 in 10, though. I'm not that good a guesser, so I stick to the easy stuff, like roulette, where it's more relaxing. Just sit there and take the free drinks and the free money. No necktie, no government regulation.

Can someone play roulette without losing?
Of course!! Just ask anyone who is hawking a sure-fire system. They will tell you "yes".

Secrecy?
Yep, gotta have that. I mean it ain't like ya plan to go into a casino and in full view of cameras and experienced personnel who are paid to be keen observers actually use the system under bright lights. You just want to sell it. Of course one wonders how you were able to develop this system unless you did it in a casino. And one wonders how you tested it, unless it was in a casino. So what do you think? Its some super secret still?

FleaStiff, talk about asking a stupid question, duh.

They use invisible ink in the casino when jotting down their notes. To read these notes requires special x-ray glasses which of course they hold the patent on and only 1 pair was ever made. Sheez.

How much are you willing to pay if you lose the challenge? What are the odds?
Or are you looking only for free rolls?

I've held it in so long, I just can't stand it.

I, too, have been winning at roulette for years. My system is, I guess which number is going to come up, and then I bet on it. Sometimes I bet a little, sometimes I bet a lot. I don't always win, but I win about one out of ten; I'm a good guesser. I've been guessing and winning for about 15 years now.

So, my system is to get really, really good at guessing, then go to a casino and rake in the big bux. It really is that easy.



It's not even necessary to do that. All you really have to do is find someone else who's really really good at guessing, and then follow them around the casino. If they take a break, you should grab and eat their sandwich or drink their beer so they get back to playing.

The above strategy also works if you can find someone who is really really BAD at guessing.

There's a book in here somewhere. $24.95 at fine retailers everywhere.

At 5-10 picking in the NFL... you could always fade me for football...

Exactly! A 66% rate is hard to achieve!

Many years ago, there was a weekly newsletter in Vegas that was the precursor of Gaming Today, and every week during the football season they posted their "Lock of the Week!!" in bold headlines on page one. One year they started off 0-12. We were starting to use it as a reliable indicator, when dammit, they got the next two weeks right. Bastards.

If I had 750 million dollars and the tables had no maximum with a minimum of $5, I could bet on a single 3rd 27 times in a row, and my profit would be $5+my final bet amount.

This system can be beaten, however very rare.

And that folks, is why there are table maximums...
