Pivot : Roulette Betting System Explained

When playing a roulette game, you may assume that the numbers coming out are distributed evenly. This is wishful thinking; yes, after millions of rolls, the occurrence of each number will be even, but you're not going to sit there for millions of rolls. The random probability changes with each roll, making the whole game of roulette a disorderly process. The "Pivot" roulette system is a betting system that tries to take advantage of the disorderly process using statistics and some luck.

Determining your Pivot Number

Best applied at brick and mortar casinos, it's suggested that you watch and record the numbers that come out before making a bet. Many casinos will give you paper and pencil to do this if you ask. If you are playing at an online casino, play "even money" bets to reduce your losses, and many sites will give you a tote board that shows you what numbers have been selected. You are then looking for the first number that comes out twice, which will be your "pivot number."

The Math behind the Pivot System

Over the course of 36 spins, an average of 24 different numbers will be rolled, so in that amount of time, there's going to be numbers that are repeated. When you've established the pivot number, you place the same bet on that number until you win or until you've lost 36 spins. If you hit the pivot number, you're guaranteed to profit or break even, based on the fact that casinos pay 35/1 on any single number you hit. Obviously, the profit is greater if the number hits sooner.

You can't change your odds, but you can certainly guide them along when you use a betting system such as the Pivot Roulette system to help you be consistent in your betting patterns. It takes discipline, but having some sort of order to your betting can help you potentially maximize your profit in the end.
