# Can you cheat on roulette?

Sure, you can cheat on this. For example, you can play roulette while drunk. If the probability of getting a good result is high, you will cheat. However, this doesn’t make it cheating. So let’s look at the roulette table again:
The probability that you will win is 1/24. So we can say the probability of beating is 1/5, even though the table is completely random, so your hand cannot be guaranteed to be as good as or as bad as the hand you picked. Your best chance of winning is 1/4 (1/8 as bad luck). However, if you get lucky here, then the 1/9 chance that you win will result in someone else winning the coin flip instead. So in the above example, a successful attempt to cheat on a roulette table results in another person getting the better of you.

In a gambling game, if a card is worth 3, you bet 5. If you win by that amount, you get 1, then you give 2 back to your opponent, and keep 1, then you give 2 to your opponent, and keep a third. But if you take a lucky chance and take the card with a value of 1, you would have won without your opponent even making it into the game. In a roulette game, if you’re lucky, the odds are much lower – you have a 99.99% chance of getting a good result. But if you fail the odds are still much lower – the odds are 99.99%. And by taking a lucky chance, you will never get unlucky. The odds are still 99.99%. This means in a roulette game, you need to have a lot of luck! But you can still cheat. The question isn’t the probability of winning; the question is the probability of succeeding. If you’re doing something really, really stupid, with a probability of 1/5 of coming out on top, you will not get anywhere with that card. But if you’re doing something really, really stupid with a probability of 1/4 of getting the right card, you will. You have a 95% chance of getting the first card on a roulette table.
Roulette table can have various shapes (square, diamond, octagon, etc…) So to get somewhere with a straight line you need to choose a curve to go along.  You have the option of choosing a square or a circle, and a choice can’t be taken without breaking the rule of choosing a
