How to Calculate Probabilities at the Roulette Table
Roulette is a casino game named after the French word meaning little wheel. In the game, players may choose to place bets on either a single number, various groupings of numbers, the colors red or black, whether the number is odd or even, or if the numbers are high 19—36 or low 1— To determine the winning number and color, a croupier spins a wheel in one direction, then spins a ball in the opposite direction around a tilted circular track running around the outer edge of the wheel.
The first form of roulette was devised in 18th century France. Many historians believe Blaise Pascal introduced a primitive form of roulette in the 17th century in his search for a perpetual motion machine. The game has been played in its present form since as early as in Paris. An early description of the roulette game in its current form is found in a French novel La Roulette, ou le Jour by Jaques Lablee, which describes a roulette wheel in the Palais Royal in Paris in The description included the house pockets, "There are exactly two slots reserved for the bank, whence it derives its sole mathematical advantage.
The book was published in The roulette wheels used in the casinos of Paris in the late s had red for the single zero and black for the double zero. To avoid confusion, the color green was selected for the zeros in roulette wheels starting in the s. In some forms of early American roulette wheels, there were numbers 1 through 28, plus a single zero, a double zero, and an American Eagle.
The Eagle slot, which was a symbol of American liberty, was a house slot that brought the casino extra edge. Soon, the tradition vanished and since then the wheel features only numbered slots. According to Hoyle "the single 0, the double 0, and eagle are never bars; but when the ball falls into either of them, the banker sweeps every thing upon the table, except what may happen to be bet on either one of them, when he pays twenty-seven for one, which is the amount paid for all sums bet upon any single figure".

If one understands the basics of probability theory, then in roulette especially it is very easy to test betting systems mathematically. Here is the step by step logic of applying probability in roulette to the possible outcomes.
First, all the mathematics used here is based on a European single 0 wheel since the house edge is half the American version.
We know that the probability of an event happening is the chances of that event compared to all the possible events. For instance, when you flip a coin there are 2 possible outcomes: If you want to know what is the probability that the coin will come up heads, then that would be: Likewise when playing an even money bet at roulette, that option covers 18 of the 37 possible outcomes: To find out the effect the odds have on a measurable outcome, we can apply that outcome to all possible results.
This shows the house advantage on any single spin applied to your bankroll. This is valuable when looking at more complicated betting within the layout of the table. For instance, if you consider on the thirds position that the return is 2: If you place a bet on one of the three options, then you are obviously playing against probability: We know that roulette is an independently random game where the results of one action does not affect the odds of a second action, so presented like this one might see this a winning system of finding a way to shift the odds in your favor.
However if we analyze all the possible outcomes we see that the proposition is a losing one. So we plug in our formula: This is even worse than playing even money odds. Now we come full circle. Almost all systems are based on the premise that the likelihood of an event happening repeatedly gets exponentially smaller the more times in a row one seeks that option. Probability will never rule out a roulette table showing the number 36 times in a row, but it will tell us exactly how unlikely it is.

It was only after the dinner that he told Clarke to get rid of Sagan as a potential advisor to his film Apparently Sagan offered some critical remarks about the film's story which irked Kubrick, and he decided not to use him on the film just as he decided not to use many people whose input he did not find helpful.
Nothing very extraordinary about that. And yet later, when Kubrick was contemplating adding a documentary prologue to consisting of black-and-white footage of a couple of dozen scientist discussing the possibilities of contact with extraterrestrials, he contacted Segan to participate in the interviews. Unfortunately Sagan insisted upon editorial control of his interview AND a percentage of the film's net profits.
Consequently, Kubrick didn't use him. Again, not very shocking. Clarke didn't get a percentage of the film. Kubrick eventually did shoot the prologue but wisely decided to discard it, as he did the film's narration and a great deal of the dialogue, which some consider a foolish decision and others a stroke of genius, depending on what you think of the final result. Alex - Thursday, May 17 Can anyone provide me with an anecdote where Carl Sagan has people come to his home and he tells the guest who brought someone "to get rid of him, I don't care how"?
My suspicion is that no such anecdotes exist.
