The latest rumour circulating online is that Artificial Intelligence (AI) can predict roulette results. Can Machine Learning and roulette bots really predict the outcomes in roulette? Or is it a myth?
Find out in our Wizard Slots blog post below.
Can Roulette Be Beaten With AI?
Roulette cannot be beaten with AI.
There are many claims online stating that it is possible for AI to beat roulette. However, this is not true. This is because the outcomes in roulette are always random. How do we know it’s random? Because of the Random Number Generator (RNG).
Online roulette uses an RNG to generate the result. This complex piece of software is used by casinos to ensure roulette results are fair and random for all players. The RNG does this by generating multiple number sequences every second, with each one translating into a random outcome on the wheel. Thereby making it impossible to predict the winning result.
Another reason why roulette cannot be beaten with AI is because of the house edge. The house edge is a built-in advantage in favour of the casino that ensures their profit in the long run.
The house edge for European roulette is 2.70%, and the house edge for American roulette is 5.26%. The house edge never changes and cannot be cheated or manipulated, not even by AI. The chances of the ball landing in any given pocket are the same on every spin.
Can Machine Learning Predict Red or Black on Roulette?
AI Machine Learning is able to analyse large amounts of data and interpret it to learn from it and identify patterns.
The theory here is that they can do this with roulette results and then use what they have learned to accurately predict outcomes in roulette to increase a player’s chances of winning.
However, all claims stating AI Machine Learning can predict outcomes in roulette are completely false. This is easily explained considering machine learning requires looking at data/previous results, but in roulette, previous results have no bearing on future outcomes. Each spin is an independent event. Therefore, the information the AI learns is of no use in terms of future outcomes.
The RNG and house edge are the only things that determine outcomes in roulette. The chances of winning are the same on every spin, and the chances of landing a winning bet on red or black are just under 50%.
Why You Should Avoid AI Roulette Prediction Apps
There are so many roulette prediction apps on the market. It is a myth that AI roulette prediction apps work. Cheating and using such apps or software goes against casino terms and conditions and is more than likely to land you in trouble.
Also, AI prediction apps do not work as promised and are simply created to take advantage of players and make money off them.
