The Varieties of Roulette Experiences

With apologies to the great psychologist and philosopher William James (1842-1910), author of the famous book The Varieties of Religious Experience: A Study in Human Nature, I think there are a variety of powerful roulette experiences casino players feel. Some for the good and some of them for ill.

Are these roulette feelings of a religious nature? Well, some players will claim they feel warm feelings as they play the game, having nothing to do with drink.

Roulette: Time and Temperament

Casino gambling is more than just math and methods of play. So much of what players do in a casino is based on their personalities and emotions at any given time.

Hello, Roulette Ralph

Today you will meet Roulette Ralph, a part time amateur mathematician, a full time roulette fan and a man who has given the ins-and-outs of gambling a serious consideration in his over 30 years of playing in casinos.

Roulette Ralph enjoys coming up with methods of play that can keep the house edge at bay but that also give players the charge or thrill they desire. After all, players play for just such charges and thrills. If they didn’t get those I am guessing players wouldn’t play.

Idiosyncratic Roulette Strategies

You have the magic finger. You can touch anyone in a casino – actually, you can touch anyone anywhere – and tell what inner thoughts they have lurking in the depths of their minds. In the casino, mixed in with thoughts of parents, children, spouses, friends, sporting events and viruses, will be thoughts of their strategies at the various games. That’s a given in a casino.

The Lucky Roulette Rebels

I once conceived a method of playing roulette and baccarat in such a way that I thought it would be an enjoyable process for players. First, it would save the player money, always a good thing, because it required some scouting without any play involved, but it would also be interesting and perhaps an exciting betting opportunity.

The Numbers (and bets) of Roulette

Roulette is a game of numbers with three colors thrown in; red, black and green (sometimes the color blue substitutes for green). Players can bet on one number and on as many as 37 numbers in the European game and 38 numbers in the American game. They can also bet on the propositions of red or black, high or low, odd or even.
