It is sometimes difficult to explain to Irish casino players that simply because there have been 7 or 8 consecutive red numbers on the roulette wheel there is no better chance of the next one being black than any other spin of the wheel. Roulette remains one of the most popular of all casino games at online casinos and the reason is probably because it is very simple to play but it is amazing to see how many roulette players play “cold” numbers. The online casino will often list what they call “hot” and “cold” numbers meaning those have come up with the most or least frequency over a number of spins and casinos.ie knows that if this information was likely to help you win they would not show it. You stand just as much chance by betting on the “hot” numbers as you do by betting on the “cold” numbers or indeed none of them. It is of course true that over time there will be just as many red numbers as black numbers that come up as winners but the difficulty arises in defining what “over time” means. The real definition is what is known as infinity but realistically perhaps a time period of ten years might achieve the result of 50/50 but a time period of one or two hours most certainly will not. All of this theory of how to play roulette is actually not needed as online casinos use a random number generator to determine the winning number and there is absolutely no skill at all involved in picking the winning number; there is as much chance of the number which has just won repeating itself as there is of any other number coming up so simply enjoy roulette, spread your bets around and hope that it is your lucky day.
