Many stumble on the American roulette wheel expecting to have fun. The reality is that you can’t gamble for fun alone. Most casino games appear harmless at first, but that is what lures players. Keep playing the game and you will realize soon enough that it is addicting. Roulette is an easy game since betting is easy. Winning is a different matter.

Self-proclaimed gambling gurus have developed their own systems and then share it with others. The reality is that these strategies are not exactly foolproof. Most times, they don’t work at all. If you still want to crack the system and come up with your own strategy, make sure you have the basics down from the following branches of science.

**Physics**

If you want to calculate the ending position of the ball in roulette, you have to determine the wheel’s speed and the ball’s relative time of release. You would also need a camera to capture these values, which is a no-no. To beat the odds using physics, you need a razor sharp memory in observing ball and wheel patterns. If that is too much work, then try gravity.

You can still use physics to win against the American roulette wheel if you bet on a table with a slight slant. The only setback you will face is casino precision. You might not be able to find a slew of casinos that maintain slanted tables unless they want the players to win, which is rare.

**Mathematics**

Math, particularly statistics, presents the use of probability in roulette to measure possible outcomes. You can use math alongside by having basic knowledge of analytical formulas, division, and multiplication. A crucial understanding of the probability theory can help you find a winning system in a seemingly random game.

Probability makes use of expected value or a process that shows how many times a number comes up or is unlikely to come up. Roulette is a game of negative expected value, meaning the house always wins. If playing for the long haul, then that would prove true. For a short-term game, you might win some money and playing the math card can help you.

**Psychology**

If you run to psychology to explain people’s manner or behavior, people like croupiers for instance, then you just might win at roulette. Skilled dealers can spin the ball in many directions, making it impossible to secure mathematical values. The chances of finding a predictable croupier are almost equivalent to finding a 95% effective system in winning at roulette. If you happen to find the right dealer, know that it can boost your chances of winning by a few points compared to using betting strategies.

Having a basic understanding of the different branches of science to beat the American roulette wheel is just half the battle. Making your own strategy depends on other factors or values. Sometimes you are lucky and most times, the table is not so hot. You can choose to apply what you learned in school to predict a game of chance, but it is always better to play randomly and allow the chips, or ball in this case, to fall where it may.
