Roulette is clearly one of the most popular games of chance in the world. There is no casino on the globe that doesn’t have a roulette wheel. Could a virtual casino be found that fails to offer roulette? Consider it extremely doubtful such a venue exists. Roulette is a really easy game to play. That has helped roulette and all its variation remain popular through the centuries. (Yes, the history of roulette dates back far earlier than the 19th or 20th centuries) Easy rules make any game of chance appealing to casino denizens.

The wagers are pretty easy to follow. There are longshot bets with huge payouts and then there are games with modest payoffs and easier odds. Depending upon the player’s comfort level, the preferred bet could be selected. Not surprisingly, there are those who might be interested in finding a way to make wins more likely. Systems have emerged over the years and one that has gained some popularity is the Pivot System. Some do swear by the value of the Pivot System. Is it really as good as some think? One way to answer this is to take a closer look at the system and ponders the pros and cons.

The Pivot System, by all accounts, is considered fairly easy to grasp. Take that as a basic positive assessment of the system. Complex, difficult to follow, convoluted systems are usually not very workable. With so many different rules and components to try and make sense of, players falter with the system and have a tough time making it work. An easy-to-follow system is almost going to be universally much more easy to follow.

Based on research into the game of roulette, it has been determined numbers have a tendency to repeat themselves. It would be hard for the numbers not to do this. After all, there are only so many numbers on the table. Roulette does not go on into infinity.

Relying on the repetition of numbers, the players opts to wager on a single number and do so for 35 spins. Is the number selected in a random manner? No, the way this is done is through picking a number that has repeated itself. Again, the notion here is certain numbers in the game of roulette have a tendency to repeat, ones that are showing up as repeating during recent spins may come up and repeat again within the 35 spin threshold.

A critical, important point does have to be stressed here. No one is suggesting that the system is foolproof and is going to guarantee a victory. Working with a system is designed to help reduce the chances of losing and increase the chances of winning within a set timeframe. The Pivot System is rooted in math and probability, which are better than pure guesswork to be sure.

The player does have a little bit of work to do when opting to take advantage of the Pivot System. The previous 35 spins have to be examined for what numbers have been repeated. In a brick-and-mortar casino and some online venues, a list of the previous numbers that have come out on the table are listed. A quick look at the table automatically reveals what the previous numbers are. That is what the table is there for. When no table is present, well, the player has to examine the next 35 spins on his or her own. Memorizing what came out is not exactly easy so writing (or typing) down the results is going to be necessary. Never look at such steps as tedious. Just consider them a time investment in trying to get a system to work.

For what it is worth, about two-thirds of the numbers in a number of sample spins will repeat during the 35 spins. About a third don’t repeat. Could this change from sample 35 spin to sample 35 spin? The repeating numbers are likely to change, but the notion that two-thirds repeat probably won’t. The laws of mathematics don’t exactly fade away. They are going to remain in play forever.

The number selected is supposed to be the first one that repeats. Some may deviate from this rule. That is up to them. Regardless, the payout on Roulette is 35 to 1. How good the system turns out to be is going to be based on when the number comes out (if the number comes out) earlier during the 35 spins. If the player wagers $1 and the number comes out on the 6th spin, the payout will be $35. $5 was lost during the first five spins though.

So, the amount really won is $30. If the number comes out at the 35th spin, the player has broken even. The player is in money-losing territory at 36 spins and beyond. Yet, the number turning up on the 50th spin means the $35 win cuts losses down to $15. Of course, all of this is predicated on the notion the number has come out. Never assume anything is guaranteed. That has to be repeated time and time again!

What number is to be picked? The player does have more to worry about when no table is presented to read. A solution does exist here.

With online casinos, those worried about losing money during the initial 35 logging spins have the option of playing less-risky wagers. The less-risky wagers come in a few forms. One could play the solid colors red or black; even or odd numbers; a sequence of numbers in a block bet; and so on. A positive point here is the player may very well end up winning a few dollars with these wagers. Now, more money is available to wager on the Pivot System once it has commenced.

The Pivot System is appealing because it is a fairly simple concept. Do not assume, however, the system provides the long-lost secret to winning at every session at the Roulette table. No system is foolproof and comes with a 100% guarantee of winning 10% of the time.
