Understanding Roulette

The Game and its Numbers


Roulette wheels have been in existence for over two hundred years, and during this time many books have been published on the subject of how to beat them. Only a tiny fraction of players who take up the challenge do so though. Just why is this?

Within “Understanding Roulette", Nick Radchen examines the underlying dynamics of the game; the numbers, the probabilities, the impact of the house edge and the myths, and sets out to explain why becoming a lifetime winning player at Roulette is a tall order. "Understanding Roulette" is an ideal primer for those looking to inform themselves about the game and offers some practical pointers for playing recreationally, as well as touching on the subject of advantage play and the thorny matter of problem and compulsive gambling behaviour.

If you're going to play Roulette, even for modest amounts of money, it makes sense to understand just why you win and why you lose. This book has been written with the aim of helping you to understand just that

Nick Radchen

Nick Radchen works in the UK as a management accountant within a £100m+ turnover organisation, and crunches reams of numbers on a daily basis. Unlike so many of his counterpart authors he is not a lifetime roulette player, and didn't make his first visit to a casino until after his 46th birthday - which was for the purpose of trying out his newly learned card-counting skills at the Blackjack tables. This was something he took up as a mental challenge after seeing the movie 21 in 2008, and over the next five years he enjoyed a modicum of success applying the hi-lo count whilst playing Blackjack for low stakes in various UK casinos.

Nowadays he still occasionally plays Blackjack (usually only applying basic strategy as card-counting opportunities have become few and far between) as well as some Roulette - where he adopts a low risk approach to chancing an affordable amount from his continually ravaged disposable income.

He lives in Cambridgeshire and is married with two grown up daughters.
