Hi Jar…. its funny that we should be talking about Roulette as against the GG’s when we’ve just had another smack on the arse by the likes of Fallon. It aint just him either, they’re all bloody at it, I’ve been into the horses now for 40 years and I’ve never had as much mistrust in the game as I do now…… we are trying to compare one form of gambling with another, I would rather have to battle against a fixed 2.7% than against a fixed race,. I aint gonna say that you will WIN on Roulette, that would only start it hitting the fan again, but you will lose a lot less often. We must assume that the casinos are straight because they have independent adjudicators in, the big boys cannot afford a whiff of scandal and it must be seen to be fair, you cannot say anything so kind about horseracing. Forget the systems and the staking plans, just compare one against the other because that was what this thread started as. The fixed "mark up" to the casino of 2.7% is far better than most bookies give you on the horses, the only thing thats fixed in the GG’s is possibly the race itself, at least with Roulette you know where you stand from the very outset….. just look at the imponderables with racing….. going, weight, stall positions, A/W, Turf (Flat), N/H, over rounds, jockeys, trainers, the horses themselves…… bugger me JAR, your on a hiding to nowt before you start, and I’d want a damned sight better value than the 8%  to 12% they mark up on most races, that why the majority of punters lose, it’s terrible value. You may also get your arse kicked at Roulette but you’ve got a far better chance of winning and if you lose, you lose slower……..
