Casinos are not just to be found in Monte Carlo or Las Vegas. They can be found all over the world and can provide a useful even lucrative form of generating money for anyone of any legal gambling age.

Two of the most popular games are Roulette and Blackjack. Both have regular followers, including professional gamblers who owe their livelihood to gambling. Most importantly for newcomers, betting in casinos should only be for fun. Remember it can be addictive and not all visits to the casino will be profitable. Try to go with friends and make it a social event rather than a gambling session.

Take It Easy

Get to know your game – by watching others; learn what you can in order to increase your chances of winning. Plan your visit. Decide on a stop loss – the figure at which you have lost a certain amount and if you reach that figure – STOP and call it a day. Here are a few systems used by professional gamblers:

Oppose the Colours

Long runs of consecutive colours do happen. But they do not always run for long.

  1. Wait for a colour to occur five times in a run.
  2. Bet one chip on the opposite colour.
  3. If it wins, start again.
  4. If it loses, double up and bet on the same colour again until you win or reach you

Stop Loss.

Oppose the Table

As above – but use the system with odd and even numbers.


The law of probability tells us that each number on the roulette table should occur the same number of times as all of the others. However, this does not always happen in practice. Some numbers occur regularly and others rarely.

By studying the frequency with which certain numbers appear, you may be able to predict quite accurately which numbers are due and those that are not due. Count the times numbers appear.

If one number or its close neighbours are appearing on a regular basis, consider whether the croupier might be allowing his / her spins to become predictable. If so, bet one chip on each of the three numbers, to the left and the right of the most frequent number and the number itself.
