Poor Artie . Wins $10,000 hitting off a female pitcher and has to make a Roulette bet with his winnings..... He could've won a boat load with a ballsy bet on green.

I hit once. But I was only betting 25. But boy was I shitting myself. It's so crazy when it goes down.

Last time at the casino I put $200 on red and it landed on green. Of course I have no actual recollection due to the fact that I was blacked-out drunk. But the large-breasted Cambodian chick I took with me made sure to remind me the next day. Also she never gave me any action.

Put a buck on every number but one, just being an ass... The number that wasn't covered came up, of course. Another time the dealer put the marker down on a different number than where the ball landed. We called her on it and she corrected her mistake. Wouldn't you know the number she marked on the previous roll came up on the next roll. Fishy shit I tell you.

I think there are 36 numbers and usually 0 and 00. So the odds of hitting a green either 0 or 00 is 1 in 38. If you split the bet on both greens, it is 1 in 19. But factor in the vig, usually a little less than 5% so your winning maybe 35 to 1 on a straight 0 or 00 bet and 15 to 1 on a split bet. If you can play the French roulette table it only has 1 zero and not the double zero, increases your odds substantially for every other number.

2 Green 18 red 18 black ------------------ 38 slots total If you bet on "00" P(win) = 1/38 P(lose) = 37/38 Pays 35 to 1 If you win.... they put $35 on your $1 If you lose they take away your $1 Expected Value (1/38)($35) - (37/38)($1) = - 0.05263 So for every $1 you are expected to lose about 5 cents ALL bets have that same expected value... try it!

I know a guy, who's a practicing MD(although he's a foreign med school grad), who is convinced that he has figured out how to beat roulette. He plays free roulette all day long on-line and takes notes on previous rolls. He says that by using statistics, the game is beatable. He fell into a trap thinking that if a number hasn't hit in a while, you must bet on it. Because, "statistics". He goes to a live casino occasionally and claims he wins. Not only does he use a pen and paper to take notes at the table, he covers 70% of the field. I told him to take the wizard of odds challenge which is basically you put up a significant sum of your own money and they run your system through a computer for a million rolls. If your system beats the odds, you win(I think it's a million dollars). Well, he won't do it. Do you know why? He doesn't want anyone else knowing his 'system'.

I listened to that Vegas trip within the past year of my re-listening to old shows. Knowing what I know now, I assume it was a fake bit.
