Hello Everyone!

I went through most of common games listed under WoO's page "Alphabetical List of Games" and dotted down returns of each game with at LEAST 25 payout...and to my surprise if my math is correct, European roulette straight up bet is one of highest return???

Payout: 35
Probability: 0.027027
Return: 0.9459459

Is this true?

Probably. Don't forget to factor into your return, the return of your stake making it 97.3%
Take care out there. Spare a thought for the newly poor who were happy in their world just a few days ago, but whose whole way of life just collapsed..

Yes, true! That's why the game is almost nonexistent in United States casinos: not enough edge for the house.

I wonder since it is harder to find vp at or above 100% and bj's tightened rules along with CSM, why is European roulette not well received at this forum even if its return is high compared to many games?

I think the best roulette you can find in the USA is with like 1.35% HE and its uncommon. Common BJ and VP games still have a better return.
Assume the worst, believe no one, and make your move only when you are certain that you are unbeatable or have, at worst, exceptionally good odds in your favor.
