A “hot number” is supposed to appear more often with each spin whereas a “cold number” appears least often. As the wheel spins one way and the ball the other, is there a chance the ball will land on your hot number? Statistically speaking, there is a one in 37 chance of this happening.
So is it instinct, luck or even logic that will fill your pocket with chips and cold hard cash? First of all, don’t rely entirely on luck. That’s like giving into the house before you even sit down at the table. According to some theories, there are numbers that hit more frequently. These hot numbers can be found by looking at a post of the last numbers to hit. If a number comes up three or more times, it’s a hot number. This could be a winning streak you want to join in on, although some would argue that your odds stay the same no matter what numbers you choose, hot or cold.
But hot and cold trends do exist and many roulette players swear by them. These small windows of opportunity offer the player a chance to win by closely following trends that encourage picking out hot and cold numbers. For example, when a number that has not come up for a while finally appears, it’s still considered a cold number. Watch this number to see if it comes up again and if it does, a trend could be forming. Whether you’re playing in a Vegas casino or online, roulette is a popular choice for players because of the relative ease with which the game is played. But it’s not really fun if you keep losing. Although there is no guarantee you will ever win a spin of roulette, there may still be some truth to picking hot and cold roulette numbers. It just takes discipline and self-control and lots of observation. Deciding how to bet will determine your outcome, whether you win or lose – so bet smart.
If a hot number comes up 5 or 6 times, the probability of it coming up again and again diminishes. And if a cold number suddenly starts coming up, there may be a probability it will come up 2 or 3 more times. But, the same can probably be said of your birthday or anniversary or the lucky numbers you always play at kino. This is where your smarts come in, this is where you decide between going forward and standing still, this is where you practice self-control and self-discipline. Ultimately, the best way to play roulette is to have fun with it while observing techniques, trends and luck.
