So you make a living playing roulette?
« on: February 13, 2018, 12:40:37 AM »

How long do you spend, research included, trying to make that money.

And is it comparable, better, or worse to another job that would only require you to be at 8 hours a day, and then the rest of the day you spend doing anything else you want.

Very good question!
Especially for hardcore players/researchers.

Expect a period longer than a decade.

Prepare to live in casinos.

Prepare to lose a lot - >= £50,000.

Prepare to lose forever.

If you are not up for that,  don't start.

If you have started,  then stop today.

Another strange post cht.

"Prepare to lose forever...". I suppose this statement excludes AP?

There are plenty who are forever net losers that finance the industry's billion dollar profit worldwide.

The casualty among APers are equally large.

Some lose their lives - they don't publish such news.

I think of all the types of play AP is the hardest to master. I can understand the disillusionment of those who try. AP is presented as a HG, a big money maker, the only way to the pot of gold. AP brag about making several times their bankroll on a single visit to the casino. Is this just a carrot on a stick to lure AP wannabes into purchasing roulette computers and other devices?

System/strategy players have a more realistic win goal per casino visit. In most cases it's less than half of their bankroll. Even with these seemingly realistic targets, disillusion prevails.

So you are right, if it's failed you after endless attempts it's best to withdraw from cash play. Circumstances differ from person to person and roulette brings stress into possibly an already stressful household.

I've been playing around with roulette for 20 years or more.

I spent the first 5 years pretty much scratching my head and never put a single chip on the table. The next 5 years I did extensive researching and testing, also playing occasionally for recreation and experience.

The next 5 years I was playing at B&M casino at least 3 or 4 times a week for at least 4 to 6 hours a day winning on average $400 per day with a $4200 lifetime bankroll. The lifetime bankroll never changed because I always spent any winnings. My longest winning stretch lasted 14 weeks, which was weird because my system was designed around the number 14, not in a numeralogical way though.

Over the final 5 years I have stopped the "full time thing" for many reasons. I now only play as I did 10 years ago, for recreation and experience.

One reason being that I have little desire to accumulate wealth in this manner anymore. I much prefer to invest my available time and funds elsewhere.

Funny thing is I feel I'm a much better player, and have vastly more knowledge than I did when I was playing for keeps.

Playing for keeps is stressful and if a player is on a winning streak he carries on playing believing that the winning will prevail. That's when the losses occur.

I too feel and believe I am a much better player after the years of ups and downs. What keeps me secure in my game is discipline more than new found knowledge.

The odds that we lose is very high.
If you play regularly(>=2times every week) at b&m casino,  you stand to lose upward of £10,000 and more depending on your bet size and how regular you play. Even if you have a winning system it will require hard work. There's no guarantee you will win. AP or systems play is the same. So be prepared to lose. If you are not careful you can lose more than you can afford. Whales normally can afford the losses - they play as a hobby risking millions. Winning or losing means nothing to them. You recognise a whale when they place their chips in boxes. The pitbosses are especially nice to them managing their chips, accomodation. They play for the fun. I think this caution about losing large sums of money is necessary for newbies who may not appreciate the risk of gambling - it's not a rosy get rich quick scheme. Lets disseminate accurate info responsibly.

(Don't what happened , but my post went awry - post from phone)

Making a living in the casino is wasting your valuable time. There is much more than a roulette.Beating the roulette is a hard work. If you can realize an edge of about 0,5% you are a very good player. Compute how much you have to wager for a living income. Roulette must be a game for pleasure.
Roulette is one of my hobbies next to many others as mounting climbing, catamaran sailing on sea and chess.
