That story comes from a biography of Nick the Greek, in a chapter entitled ” ROULETTE for Europeans only”. It refers of course to American roulette with 2 zeros and an HE of 5.6%. Not the European game with an HE of 1.35%. The story goes on to relate that after seeing Nick win 3 times in a row Einstein asked to have his mouth washed out with soap.

Yip.

And that is what the ‘longterm’ means. Nick the Greek died a poor man playing low stake games at the end of his life.

You started it by quoting a dead man from the same era.
  Incidentally Nick was a compulsive gambler that won and lost the equivilent of Billions in todays inflated money. His last big game when he was already an old man, was against Johnny Moss, a profesional poker player of the modern school. In over a week of almost non stop play Nick lost over 2.5 million dollars. When later challenged for playing low stakes, he replied, ” It’s action isn’t it?”.
    I forget how old he was when he died but it was over 80.

    Regards     Harry
 
    That game was the forerunner of the famous World Series Of Poker which Johnny went on to win several times

The point being if you gamble, which means you do not have an edge over the house, you will end up down on the house.

Those who don’t know about biased wheels may wish to log into an article by Ed.Thorp - he of blackjack fame - who together with his friend Paul Shannon looked into biased wheels. Type in Ed Thorp in your search box -find “The Mathematics of Gambling” -and scroll down to The Wheel - then Roulette. An interesting article for roulette gamblers.

Honestly, this is my first time to encounter a professional roulette player. Seriously, a 400% return on investment??? I want to make sure first if this has a guarantee.

Online roulette is also very popular in Australia with many of the internet casino brands directly targeting Australians, resulting in a huge choice of roulette sites available to Australians. CasinoReef recommends Ruby Fortune casino as one of the top online roulette casinos available in AUD. For New Zealanders, CasinoKiwi recommends Jackpot city casino as the most popular choice for new Zealanders playing roulette online.
