    I played Interblock Roulette for the first time last night. I have always pooh-poohed the game, and never took it seriously. My wife and I were returning from Phoenix to our home in northern AZ and my wife had remembered she had some Free play at our local casino, Cliff Castle, and it would expire if we didn't use it. We usually play there twice a week. My wife plays slots and I normally play penny multi-hand poker. They have an electronic Roulette machine but no Craps.

    My wife had mentioned it the night before. We had just spent 3 days at 3 casinos and I was looking forward to getting home. To be honest, I usually got bored at Cliff, especially if the penny machines were all taken, as is usually the case. So I hopped on the Internet and searched for a simple Roulette strategy that would allow me to pass the time without spending a lot of money. I found one.The betting was simple, bet $1 on the Middle at 2:1 and $1 on Black at even money. Seemed easy enough.

    We stopped at Cliff and after checking my account I headed for the IB Roulette machine. It was only a 6 seater but there were 4 chairs open when I sat down and bought in for $20. I placed by bets and Black won 4 in a row, then Zero, then 3 middle Black numbers wining $3 each. I was up $10 and started getting serious.

    The IB Roulette machine has the Repeat and Double buttons just like IB Craps. I pressed Repeat and Double and the ball landed on a Middle, Black again. I pressed again until an uncovered Red number won. I went back to my initial bet. I then noticed the display. I could see that Black was dominating 57% over Red at 43%. And three of the Middle numbers were in the top 5.

    I continued betting and pressing if a Middle Black won. After about an hour and half I cashed out $61, up $41. I took a break and came back. Had the same chair. Bought in for $20. Same strategy and cashed out $40 when my wife was ready to go. Won $61 overall.

    I was excited and now I can't wait for our next visit to Cliff, usually Wednesdays and Fridays. Sunday is Twin Arrows and IB Craps. I love retirement!

    I also found an inexpensive betting strategy on the internet that didn't require a big bank roll but TR31 would love it because it showed a lot of money in play.
    So now I'm known to my sons friend as a dollar at a time cause that's all I was winning.

    Towards the end of the evening I was sitting next to an older woman and her son. I was amazed to see that she was betting at least 12 numbers at a time. They didn't appear to be that wealthy to me. I then noticed the chip denomination was 25c. Mystery solved.

    I could bet a quarter but I have to bet at least 4 to meet the $1 minimum. I'll give it a try next time. Maybe bet the hot numbers once I'm ahead.

    Jacob ran a Roulette Forum when he first got into the forum business. You may not be aware of it since Jacob shut it down before you joined here. Unfortunately the search feature doesn't work any more, at least for me, but if you don't mind slogging through the various sections and checking the threads individually there were plenty of systems discussed there.

    Thanks. I started going that way and thought I would simply post a new thread under Other games. I am also searching the web. My Twin Arrows Craps buddy switches between Roulette and Craps. I noticed he plays both games the same way. Has a hunch and bets the number.

    The lucky bastard won a $100 making a $4 Horn bet every time a 3 was rolled. Each time the next roll was a 2/3/11 or 12. I dropped a $100 trying to follow some reasonable betting strategy.

    Someones favorite saying on here is "got a hunch, bet a bunch"

    Once in a great while I'll play on the interblock machine that shows the results for the last 50 decisions. I like to run a D’Alembert on the even money bets when one of them gets below 40% as long as the 0 and double 0 aren't distorting the numbers too much.

    It's called street bet strategy.
    The street bet covers six numbers.
    You would place a bet at the end of the 2 rows that have.
    123
    456
    That's just an example of the bet. It requires tracking numbers and those numbers are the ones you would street bet.
    If a 14 was rolled then your next bet would be a street bet of the numbers
    10 11 12
    13 14 15

    Last night was Senior night at Cliff Castle Casino and yours truly spent the day in anticipation of playing Roulette once again (no Craps at this casino). After researching several betting systems (Martingale, D'Alembert. Oscar's Grind, The Column King, etc) I decided to keep my strategy which is based on The Column King with progression.

    I start with a buy in of $20. My initial bet is $1 on a 2-1 column and $1 on a color. If the bet loses then I Repeat the bet. For each win I press the bet by 1 press unit. The press unit starts with a minimum amount (25c) and progresses by 1 unit as I reach a certain plateau. When I am up $10 my press unit becomes 50c, up $20 then $1. I press a maximum of 4 times within a plateau. No plans to change my initial betting amount of $1 (maybe if I am up a $100 or more).

    It seems like a good "streak" strategy and after playing for 3 hours I walked away up $20. The strategy simplifies the betting amounts for me. The tough decision is which column and what color? I use the machine statistics to resolve that. If Black is dominating then Black it is. If Red goes on a streak then I switch to Red. I use the "Hot" numbers to choose the Column. The column containing 2 or more hot numbers, out of 5, gets the bet. At one point there were 4 hot numbers in the same column.

    Interesting note. When I sat down there was only 1 other player. This guy was standing, playing 3 machines and betting $35 (maximum bet) on 1 of the top 3 hot numbers. If a hot number won, the payout was $1225. During the 3 hours I played he had at least 5 payouts. I know because they were hand pays. I don't know how long he had been there, and he was still there when I left.

    Grrrrr!

    My last 3 outings have not been good. I have given back my winnings from my earlier trips. I am not discouraged. My next outing will be Wednesday and I am going to change up my betting strategy.

    I am going to change my betting as follows:

    $1 on hot Column or Street (both pay 2:1). Press by 25c when win up to 3x. Then revert back to original bet.

    Increase initial bet on Even Money propositions to $1.5. Press by .50 up to 5x. Then revert back to original bet.

    Always revert back to original after loss, no progression.

    Switch Even/Money bet based on % of 55 or higher.​

    Let you know how it turns out. I still prefer this over Video Poker, although at Cliff Castle I cannot use Free Play or Points on the Roulette machine.

    I used to play Roulette a little but rarely do know. Any system you feel will work on Roulette will work as well or better on craps bets.

    If I do play, it's only electronic versions and I only play when the 0 and 00 have been occurring more than probability hoping that trend is over with.

    Hey AZ, have you tried this using a combination of Street and Column?
    Betting 2 streets or columns is mutually exclusive, you can only win on 1, although you do profit if one does win. Betting a street and column does makes for a larger payout if a number in the intersection wins.

    I am toying with this idea, versus going with a street/column and Even Money bet. I chose this strategy because of the dual win possibility but the even money bet doesn't seem to be very profitable if it's the lone winner, unless you bet different amounts or add a pressing strategy.

    Do you ever use the 0/00 as a hedge? For example throw a quarter between them? It would pay $4.50 and possibly cover your bet. Just curious.

    :confused: A street and a column, both pay 2/1? A street should pay better. :cool:

    I never hedge on any of the casino games. Only exception is I will take insurance once in a great while on Blackjack if the conditions are right

    Just personal preference.

    My mistake I am new at this. I mean dozens instead of columns and columns instead of streets. I don’t know what’s worse. Making a mistake on the forum or having a prostrate exam which is where I am.

    So this proctologist is rushing down the hallway...and a nurse approaches him wth a clipboard. "Doctor, doctor " she says..."I need for you to sign these forms.".

    He reaches in his breast pocket and pulls out a rectal thermometer......" Son of a bitch" , he says,.." some asshole has my pen."
