Do any of you have a fun system for playing Roulette? I'm always intrigued by the game, but I've never found an interesting way to play. I'm not asking for a winning strategy, of course -- there aren't any. The house always has that nice little edge. I'm talking about a certain pattern that you like to sprinkle the chips in, or a certain way that you calculate how many chips to play.
I have two requirements for this system. One, that it not be boring. I could sit there and play Red all day. Whee! No.
Two, it should have some chance of making some big bucks. If I'm just sprinkling $1 chips on 2-1 odds all the time, that's not very interesting to me. I'm up $5, down $6, up $3, down $5, etc. I want people to scream in envy when my $20 bet on 8 pays off at 35-1!
An example of a fun system would be to sometimes arrange the chips in a smiley face pattern, with the nose being the big money. Or place the chips in a straight line that hits some numbers and also the little side bets.
I'd like to just chuck the chips over my shoulder and see where they land, but I don't think they'd let me do that.
