Casino Strategies – a Selection of Theories

by on

Everyone starts off with an aim in mind about where they want to reach and how they are going to reach there – the steps that need to be taken and so on and so forth. The entire process involves having a strategy in place or a plan of action. This applies whatever you plan to achieve in life – whether it’s pursuing your passion or even something as simple as playing a game you enjoy. Even when it comes to something like online gambling or online casinos, the same logic applies – if my level and knowledge increases I will be able to get better at beating the game and thus increasing the chances of winning and also ultimately earning more money.


So the ideal workable strategy says – first go through some trial runs which helps you understand the game and learning how it works. Then when you feel confident you start playing online with minimum investment, still learning and still developing your strategy on how to proceed further. As your knowledge and understanding increases, the more you are comfortable you get in increasing your bets. At the end of the day, however, in spite of all the strategies and learning that you have in place there is never a 100% win. The casino is meant to win – that’s how it works.

No matter how random are the chances of winning we play and when we do lose we come up with things like its computer and completely random and unpredictable as far as the outcome is concerned. However, some nerds or theorists would question this and wonder – how come the casino wins every time? How is that possible? How is that the probability of winning is always in the favour of the casino? Can something be done to change the odds? Thus come some new experiments, new theories and new strategies for flipping the odds in the player’s favour.

While we talk about some of the theories of different or new strategies, please understand that one theory is linked to one particular game. So theories regarding the strategies to be implemented are different from game to game. There has been one new theory or research that has been discussed and proved through simulation – how the odds are favoured in the game or roulette? This has been even recently presented in the Chaos journal. For the newbies the game of Roulette is all about having a small thrown on a spinning small numbered wheel. The number on which the ball finally stops at is the winning number and all the players playing on that number are winners. Here the first question that would come to the mind is what are the chances of the number I have selected would win? The probability would be rare. further, is there something that I can do to flip the odds in my favour? Does the person spinning the roulette or throwing the ball doing something so that the odds are in favour of the casino rather than the players playing the game?

As per the theorists of the Chaos Journal, they say that there is way of beating the house. This has been proved by them, in simulation and also by using an actual roulette wheel. The claim that they can predict the outcome of the game without precise measurements and computer simulations. The main thing about the roulette is understanding with what speed the ball spins so that the outcome can be predicted. To predict the outcome, the first thing that needs to be done is measure the time required by the ball to pass a fixed point, so that an approximate velocity of the ball can be calculated. Using these simple measurements, though not the most accurate method, the gambler or the player would be able to predict in which half of the roulette the ball would land for 59% of the times. Now by using these predictions strategically, the managed to get an 18% return on the gambling compared to the -2.7% return, while relying on the roulette to take its unpredicted course.

Also, some other Chaos researchers have suggested that — For a roulette wheel for which the ball only drops one side of the rim i.e., a crooked table. For such a table, the prediction is so much moresimpler and reliable. At the end of the day, in spite of the predictions and speculations, there is a probability of losing big with the possibility that it might be fruitful in the long run depending on the depth of your pocket.

There is also a Blackjack Chaos Theory. First let’s understand how blackjack is played. It is a dynamic game where what cards are played will affect the cards to be played in the future. Either a card adds or subtracts to the casino’s advantage. When the advantage moves in favor of the player, he can up his bets and gain an advantage.

Now to explain the Chaos theory — every game has its own set of rules that help the casino win. In Blackjack, the rules vary depending on the split off – the player can double if he wants to, after the split off. Computer simulations in billions are ran and utilized to find the conjunction of a loss per currency using a flat bet for every event and an ideal strategy. Thus the blackjack system is a dependent and not based on the law of independent trials like the Roulette strategy. For example, its very logical to say that if an Ace is drawn, then there is one less Ace in the deck and this leads us into evaluating the game better than the accepting the law of independent trials.

Finally, it’s all about winning and gaining advantage over the house and win some decent cash. All these strategies and theories have been tested either through computer simulations or by testing in a controlled environment. How these strategies and theories survive in the real world have yet to be see and implemented. Finally, the casino will always find a way to keep its earnings – that’s what the business and game is all about.
