Gambling is simply a matter of mathematics. There are (in my humble opinion) only two ways to be successful at gambling long term: (and it’s made me a millionaire) To cheat in someway, inside knowledge in a horse race, card counting in blackjack, or one of the numerous other methods that have been tried to rip off bookmakers, casino owners and the like.

The second way is to get the maths in your favour. Gambling and odds will always be against you no matter what form of gambling you choose. Casinos, be it on or offline will always have the odds in their favour and a “house edge” and devising systems to beat this edge has become an industry in itself Yes you may lower the edge but you cannot beat it.

A bookmaker will set his book in the same way. All the odds values will represent a percentage and the percentage of the book
will always add up to more than 100%, the figure over 100 being the bookmakers profit margin.

As a professional gambler I have dedicated my career to getting the maths in my favour. It is not easy but with the
right research and the right sports and the right circumstances it is achievable.

What is not achievable is devising systems that beat roulette, or software systems that can beat horse racing.

My life on the internet has bought me in touch with lots of gambling systems. I am sent a new horse racing system,
or roulette betting strategy daily. In my position I am asked to use and recommend them. I have never once found
one that worked long term. But these products sell by the thousands. Lay horse systems where you pick and
bet on a horse to lose the race (or a piece of software does it for you). It all sounds easy doesn’t it. Think
about the maths of the strike rate required. if you are laying horses at 2 or 3-1 you need 2 or 3 losers out of 3 races.
The higher the odds go you lay out the more the liability and just one loser will dent your bankroll. Of course
studying form lowers the advantage and being able now via betting exchanges to just pick one horse may make it
simple but you try it!

Roulette systems – don’t get me started. Look at Vegas. Where do you think the money comes from to build
billion dollar casinos. The house know every time they spin the wheel they will win. Yes you may get lucky
an hit your number, but there is no system that you can adopt, which will afford you regular play and profit.
It is quite simply impossible.

The message of this article. The maths are against you. If you gamble think of the mathematical odds and see if you
can shorten them more in your favour. If you buy a system, make sure it gets the maths in your favour!
