Although the traditional rooms of physical casinos continue to be a fixed entertainment space, online casino games have grown a lot in recent times. It is undeniable that digital operators will continue to renew their offers, achieving the adhesion of new users.

Online casinos offer a wide variety of entertainment for all player profiles. Both for those who opt for chance, and for players who are more fond of strategy. Lately many have decided to try their luck playing online Spanish roulette for real money.

Roulette is one of the games with the longest history in the world of casinos. Everyone knows that when it comes to chance, this easy-to-learn game is top of the list. Roulette and its variants always make it entertaining. And its social nature, given the call it has, provides the game with a unique element of fun.

What is the gambler’s fallacy?

A fallacy is understood as an argument that may seem valid, but in reality is not. It is directly related to logic and the biases that may appear in certain circumstances. In the casino industry, the “gambler’s fallacy” is a term widely used in relation to gambling. This is so because of the enormous losses that this belief has generated and that has led many players to their ruin.

It is based on the conviction that if a certain number comes up in one round, it will most likely not be repeated in a second. This is a misconception since, in reality, the probabilities are exactly the same. The characteristic random factor of games of chance conditions the players, who tend to bet convinced of this argumentative logic that contains an error.

Games of chance are a simple and fast way to bet because they do not require complex methodologies. Which is why players end up being victims of this fallacy that leads them to lose large sums of money, or even property. However, it is worth mentioning the distinction that exists when it comes to random terms when it comes to online games.

Chance in online games

The randomness that characterizes gambling does not affect the gaming process in the same way when it comes to online casinos. In the case of roulette, those who attend the face-to-face rooms can confirm that the bet is affected by one hundred percent luck. Chance has a real component and is in full view of the players who are present at the table.

When betting on a digital platform there are other factors that can alter luck. The advancement of technology in social networks has brought previously unknown words to our vocabulary. Today all users know what an algorithm is, and how it affects or directs the results that are played in the virtual field.

In online casino games this is no exception. The players place their bets behind a screen and are unaware of the operator’s procedure that alters the procedures so that the result is one or the other. Algorithms intercede by biasing bettors’ planning to estimate their winnings or control monetary losses.

In the case of roulette, the term RTP (Return To Player or in Spanish Retorno Al Jugador) is used very regularly among regular players. Refers to the amount of money, in percentage terms, that a casino game is expected to return to its customers. The RTP percentage is usually indicated in the game rules. However, unlike land-based casinos, it cannot be guaranteed that each spin will return the indicated percentage. Online players should be aware that this percentage is awarded randomly.

There are studies whose purpose is based on validating the randomness conditions of online roulette wheels. From these, strategies are usually developed to improve the chances of winning at roulette. Finally, this strategy is simulated through the use of computer programs and the results are analyzed.

Beyond the methodologies that can be carried out to plan possible profits, roulette is one of the games that most attracts players because it has the advantage of being able to make money quickly, without the need to plan the play. Users enjoy being able to access entertainment without rigorous analytics involved. However, it is advisable to be aware of the differences that online gambling presents to physical casinos in order to choose more carefully.
