Some FUN Facts
« on: November 18, 2017, 02:16:17 PM »
All roulette croupiers have a signature, but most times their handwriting is indecipherable.
The roulette wheel smells fear, but rewards the brave.
The real percentage against an average table of players is 66.6%.
The bias of the wheel is activated against YOU, personally, every time you place a wager.
That time the ball hit YOUR target pocket, and got smacked clean out of the bowl, and across the room, THEY did that on purpose, just to see the expression on your face.
The REAL reason that players are not allowed to wear Sunglasses in the Casino, is because of the stun-flash memory eraser  ("Men in Black) that they use when they have to move the ball away from a heavy payout position.

Hahaha, a good sense of humour you have. I enjoyed the read.

What you are actually saying is that casinos are dishonest and I disagree, especially where live wheels are concerned. Casinos get audited on a regular basis and all equipment/programmes are checked to make sure they comply with regulations. The fact that a few are dishonest and get caught out from time to time should not be held against the whole industry.

What you are also assuming is that losses or should I say big losses are never the players fault.I've seen a player calling and betting heavily on a number and the more he calls for it the bigger the bets become and the more other players begin betting on the same number/numbers. Let's face it, distractions come in many different forms and human nature is so susceptible to distractions. No matter what sort of player you are you will encounter losses. All people generally speaking have bad days. When you walk up to a table your mindset must be right. Keep your mind on your own game and manage it well. If you can't,  walk away and come back another day when you are more focused.

Please explain your statement: "The real percentage against an average table of players is 66.6%."

666 is an abundant number. It is the sum of the squares of the first seven prime numbers.

Since 36 is both square and triangular, 666 is the sixth number of the form n2(n2 + 1) / 2 (triangular squares) and the eighth number of the form n(n + 1)(n2 + n + 2) / 8 (doubly triangular numbers.)

There is no number whose value of Euler's totient function รถ is 666, making it a nontotient.

The harmonic mean of the digits of 666 is an integer: 3/(1/6 + 1/6 + 1/6) = 6. 666 is the 54th number with this property.

In base 10, 666 is a palindromic number, a repdigit and a Smith number.

A prime reciprocal magic square based on 1/149 in base 10 has a magic total of 666.

The Roman numeral representation of the number 666 (DCLXVI) uses once each the Roman numeral symbols with values under 1,000, and they occur in exact reverse order of their respective values (D = 500, C = 100, L = 50, X = 10, V = 5, I = 1).
Quote by internet user Cortan

And of course:

[16] And he shall make all, both little and great, rich and poor, freemen and bondmen, to have a character in their right hand, or on their foreheads. [17] And that no man might buy or sell, but he that hath the character, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. [18] Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding, let him count the number of the beast. For it is the number of a man: and the number of him is six hundred sixty-six.

[18] "Six hundred sixty-six": The numeral letters of his name shall make up this number.

Reyth, thank you for trying to explain or answer the question. I must be as thick as early morning pig s**t  because I was unable to relate your answer to the roulette question. Biblical verse has nothing to do with roulette.

Will you please try and explain it again in layman's terms and also in the context of the roulette game.

Its a "joke" about how we lose at roulette.  All of his examples are meant to be funny. :)

We all have our serious side that is very focused on beating roulette and I know that it is your intense focus that is at work here.

Sometimes it helps us to lighten up and unload some of our frustration?  I mean grinding can become quite difficult and a bit of humour can give us much needed strength?

The best discoveries I have ever had with roulette came after a period of complete absence from the game. :)

Or like Kav says, "My best advice?  Go out and lose some money!". :D

As contrary to MickyP, I was quite happy to find the devil's biblical reference at the end of Reyth's first post in this topic. If that wasn't in the post I would be quite disappointed. So many info about 666 and then a miss on the most important bit. That would tear me apart.
