There is a good description of the dealers'
preferences to spin zeros. If you say that the spinning and throwing the ball is completely uncontrollable, it is sad, but you are wrong. Why? Because there are the experienced dealers with many-many years of the spinning the wheel, which they turn hundreds of times during the working day.
The main disadvantage is that there is no bankroll management chapter or at least some good mentioning, which is really important especially for the gambling activities.
They become wonderful experts and spin the roulette the way that the ball will land where they want it to. However some of them are still playing online pokies through this link. We are not talking about the exact pocket but the sector. And if the dealer likes to spin the zeros, it means that they kill the outside bets. Although they are not the best choice to bet on, but still. And in this case we are talking about American roulette, where there is no La Partage or en Prison rule, because they are in French roulette.
What else is interesting and important is that the author tells the readers and the future or current gamblers not to lose your mind and not to follow 'I almost won' the call. What does it mean? Almost my bet won, but in reality the neighboring bet was the winning one. Almost my color (but actually there can be only one winning color of two), almost my dozen (Oh, yeah, right, but there are only three dozens to bet on).
This is a good point, as nobody says 'He almost won the Olympic gold.' They say, 'Second place,' but, unfortunately there cannot be two winners in the roulette game (I do not mean betting on the same number, but betting close to the winning number).
Everybody wants to find the Holy Grail of the roulette game, to find the only roulette secret. But there is none. There is luck and there are rules and strategies to follow. Full stop.
Enjoy the book and be successful!
