best roulette strategy is not to play.
 
1) Craps bet on pass or no pass line
2) Baccarat bet on the banker
3) Blackjack is another won.

Zoo, I am glad someone responded to rhis post. I need to come up with a strategy for
my next trip to Macau. I had never played roulette before and it cleaned me out. To
my surprise, there are though strategies in roulette. I would very much like to try
them and wonder if anyone here has already experimented with them. Most if not all
depend on betting on Red/Black since your chances are the best: almost 50/50. 
 
For example, there is the Martingale stratey:
 
'Originally, martingale referred to a class of betting strategies popular in 18th
century France. The simplest of these strategies was designed for a game in which
the gambler wins his stake if a coin comes up heads and loses it if the coin comes
up tails. The strategy had the gambler double his bet after every loss, so that the
first win would recover all previous losses plus win a profit equal to the original
stake. Since a gambler with infinite wealth will with probability 1 eventually flip
heads, the Martingale betting strategy was seen as a sure thing by those who
advocated it.' (Wiki)
So all i have to do is to double the bet until i win! Easy money! has anyone ever tried this?

Roulette wheels without a zero are fair to both player casino. Good luck in trying to find one though.
 
Wheels with a zero give a statistical advantage to the bank. Over the long term, the bank always wins. Therefore all casinos use wheels with a zero.

Very true, Heorot, but the 'little wheel' has been beaten before:
 
  • "In 1873, the Englishman Joseph Jaggers made the first famous roulette biased wheel attack. Mr. Jaggers with a team of six clerks, clocked all the wheels at the Monte Carlo casino and found one wheel to show significant bias. In their attack exploiting this flaw they won over $325,000, an astronomical sum in 1873. [14]
  • In the summer of 1891 at the Monte Carlo casino, a part-time swindler and petty crook from London named Charles Wells, broke the bank at each table he played over a period of several days. Breaking the bank meant he won all the available money in the table bank that day, and a black cloth would be placed over the table until the bank was replenished. In song and life he was celebrated as "The Man That Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo."

 

 

At least in the 1930s, some professional gamblers were able to consistently gain an edge in roulette by seeking out rigged wheels (not difficult to find at that time) and betting opposite the largest bets.

In 1982, several casinos in England began to lose large sums of money at their roulette tables to teams of gamblers from the USA. Upon investigation by the police, it was discovered they were using a legal system of biased wheel-section betting. 
 In 1986, when a professional gambling team headed by Billy Walters won $3.8 million using the system on an old wheel at the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City, every casino in the world took notice, and within one year had switched to the new low-profile wheel.

Thomas Bass, in his book The Eudaemonic Pie 1991 (published as The Newtonian Casino in Britain), has claimed to be able to predict wheel performance in real time. The book describes the exploits of a group of computer hackers, who called themselves the Eudaemons, who in the late 1970s used computers in their shoes to win at roulette by predicting where the ball would fall.

In the early 1990s, Gonzalo Garcia-Pelayo believed that casino roulette wheels were not perfectly random, and that by recording the results and analysing them with a computer, he could gain an edge on the house by predicting that certain numbers were more likely to occur next than the 1-in-36 odds offered by the house suggested. This he did at the Casino de Madrid in Madrid, Spain, winning 600,000 euros in a single day, and one million euros in total. Legal action against him by the casino was unsuccessful, it being ruled that the casino should fix its wheel. [8][9]." (wiki)
