Publishers don't publish books because they're "good" or legitimate or anything of the sort. They publish them for one reason alone: they will sell.

So if they happen to appeal to enough gullible morons out there in today's world, and there are plenty, then they'll publish it.

First off, you'll hit the table limit before you get to that point, so you'll bottom out more often than .25% of the time.

But there will be times when you'll win, but you can't win big by betting $5 at a time on either red or black. The only way to win big that way is to play long enough. But if you play long enough, the chances increase that you're going to run into one of those bad streaks, hit the table limit as you try to double your bets, and take a HUGE loss.

There's no way to beat the system over the long haul. It's mathematically impossible.

It doesn't mean playing roulette isn't fun. But if you play, you should realize the odds are stacked against you.

That is not to say that it will happen, but what if.
Good idea. Stick to religion. It's something you actually know something about.

Why are we assuming that God would be mad at spreading the word that He doesn't exist? If I tell my friend that God doesn't exist, you think God's going to be mad at me? Why?

And that should be the only reason to gamble. I think people who gamble to strike it rich are exactly the people that "Vegas" thrives off of. Gambling can be fun recreation as long as you're conscious of how easy it is to get caught up in the illusion of easy money.

Ok, you didnt call him a con artist, but you still state as if it were fact that anyone who writes such a thing as how to beat roulette to be a "modern day snake oil salesmen". Which is still only YOUR opinion...

And keep in mind, no one tried my full blown system. It's a lot of PAGES of instructions, not the blurp I left here. But it doesn't matter what I say to certain people, they won't listen anyway.
There are systems to things, people figure these loop holes out every day.

Scneed
ps- not EVERY table has a limit. I am sure you heard of the guy that sold all his possessions and took the money to vegas, and put it all on black...right?

Yes I did hear about that. If you remember the story, the Casino decided to waive the table limit for him in order to get the publicity; because he brought TV crews along with him. That's free advertising for the casino. They'd never tell that guy "no, you can't play one hand for that amount of money here, it's above our table limit". Not when news crews were following him. If you're going to walk into a casino, or especially a cruise boat like you tend to do, you're going to bump up against the table limit if you're just there betting a system. Unless of course you're willing to bet everything on one spin and bring news crews with you. But I didn't see that as part of your system.

Re: Civil Discussion About Religion

Speaking of taking a foolish risk with regards to gambling. BAck in 1996 at Cripple Creek in Colorado, a friend of mine won $15,000 in a $.25 slot machine pull. He goes out a few days later and pays for a brand new....Kia Sephia! We were all like what the f*ck were you thinking? Afterwards the Sephia spent more time in the shop than he did in the car. Whatever could go wrong with that car, did go wrong.
