John Patrick's Roulette: A Pro's Guide to Managing Your Money and Beating the Wheel
by John Patrick
A Common Sense Way to Play, February 1, 2000
Reviewer: Nicholas W. Dedi (Philadelphia, PA)
Patrick's book has helped me in a major way to quit throwing money around the layout, and play in a controlled manner that's still fun -- because I've won 7 of 9 casino visits since! I don't break the bank -- but I don't lose my usual $300-$400 anymore either. This book is far superior to Scoblete's, offering actual inside numbers to play in order to spread numbers around the wheel, excellent suggestions on outside bets, pros and cons of betting systems, regression bets, money management, discipline -- highly recommended for those who see that Scoblete's riff -- "biased" wheels -- is something only those looking for a ridiculous "angle" will believe.

Reviewer: A reader
Roulette, contrary to popular belief, is a game that offers various opportunities to win despite the house edge of (ugh) at least 5%. There are two reasons for this. One, the number of options for betting open to the customer offer great hedge opportunities and two, it is a streaky game. Furthermore, if you can find a wheel with just one zero (and there are some in both Reno and Vegas), you cut that house edge in half on the outside bets. Learn to beat this game with the Regression system in conjunction with hedges or with the Action-Number system, a system that spreads your money around the entire wheel, giving you the best chance to win. This knowledge alone is great, but it is Patrick's philosophy that is the real meat and potatoes of being competitive. There is simply the most logical approach to beating this game written in this book. There are critcisms that this book is redundant in terms of the philosophy that Mr. Patrick teaches. I have a reply to these silly criticisms. Winning isn't complicated,
it's just real hard to do. Get this book and open up another opportunity for yourself to be a winner during your next trip to the casinos.
