Roulette is a casino game that is loved by just about everyone. One of the most iconic casino games around, it mixes glamour, sophistication and simplicity in just the right proportions, whilst also offering players a decent chance to win and even win big. Roulette has featured in countless movies over the years and it has also been written about a great deal. Whilst there is less strategy or mathematical interest in roulette when compared to other online casino games such as blackjack or poker, there is still plenty to write about and here we take a look at our favorite three roulette books.
Get the Edge at Roulette by Christopher Pawlicki
There are fewer books about roulette than other casino games because there is, seemingly, no real way to beat the house edge that the odds of the game creates. However, if there is any way at all of beating the wheel, it simply has to come from being able to spot wheel bias or dealer predictability and this book is the most authoritative tome on the matter.
Whether you think its ideas are truly practicable or not, for anyone wanting to beat the game of roulette this is a must-read and it certainly has far more credibility than just about any so-called system that you may find for sale on the internet at a far bigger price than this book will set you back.
Gamble to Win Roulette by R. D. Ellison
This book has loads of information on various betting strategies and is also a good companion to the game because it offers really good explanations of various forms of roulette and the rule differences and impact on the house edge. It’s very clearly written and is a good option for a relative beginner to the game of roulette and is also equally valid for both online and offline roulette.
How to Win at Roulette by Norman Squire
As with Gamble to Win, this book is really well written and explains the differences between roulette variations but the main focus of Squire’s work is progressive betting systems, including the infamous Martingale. Of course, no such system can beat roulette in the long term but it’s nice to know why, as well as how these systems work.
