All this talk of roulette systems have got me excited about my trip at the end of this month. I'm thinking of trying the "100 pieces complete bet" that I have tried a few times in the past. I tried to find something online to link to about it, but surprisingly had no luck. I could only find the wiki on complete bets for individual numbers. Let me explain the bet first, It is 100 pieces (obviously) bet on 1/3 section of the european (single 0) roulette table. What it means is that if you bet $10,000 per spin, it will be in units of $100. If you bet $1000, it will be in units of $10. When you verbally declare the bet, they take your $ and put a 100 pieces complete marker over it and put it in the 1/3 where you want to bet it. The place where normal bets get paid 2 to 1. What it means is that you have a complete bet on every single number in that 1/3 section. Remember that line borders that go outside of 1/3 doesn't count. So for example the number 13 in my $10k example would have 100 on 13, 200 on the 13/14 split, 200 on the 13/16 split, 300 on the 13/14/15 street, 400 on the 13/14/16/17 corner, and 600 on the 13/14/15/16/17/18 6-way. The best numbers will still be 17 and 20, where you have full completes by 100. So if 17,20 hits, you will get paid 43.2k, minus your original 10k. If 14,16,18,19,21,23 hits, you will get paid 32.4k minus your original 10k. If 13,15,22,24 hits, you will get paid 18k minus your original 10k. So is this bet better than just putting 10k for the 2 to 1 payout? Perhaps better is not a good term since it just shifts more winnings from the corners to the center, whereas you get 2 to 1 for any number hit in the middle if you just put 10k on the 1/3. The one good thing about this bet is that it allows you to control your bets a little more, so that you play with a fix amount of money instead of throwing chips and complete bets everywhere....so it mainly helps with money management. It also allows low rollers to bet a 1k complete bet, which is still exciting when it hits. Comments appreciated...although I know that roulette is a negative expectation game, stay away from it, etc etc....it is just really fun!
