Jackscracked roullette play

I've seen a number of instagram posts in my discovery feed of this guy @jackscracked who apparently "crushes" the game with the usual story of pics of nothing but winning sessions. Example: https://www.instagram.com/p/BSXo05_AI15/

On one post, he did post his little system.

I know the bare minimum when it comes to the game. Is there an easy way to calculate what the EV is of this betting pattern? I'm assuming it's obviously -EV but I'm curious what the actual math is.

All the number bets are the same, EV is just amount on the table * -5.26%.

Re: Jackscracked roullette play

Right, but wouldn't the side bets and corners effect the EV as well? I can't imagine a corner or edge is -5.26. (Sorry if my terms are incorrect)

Re: Jackscracked roullette play

Everything he could put a chip on in that picture is -5.26 (ok I'm assuming a chip on the edge between a number and 2nd 12 is, not familiar with that, but it doesn't matter)

Be careful though - he says it's for American roulette only!

Don't use it on European roulette where you'll go broke half as quickly.

The only way to beat roulette is trying to scientifically demonstrate its flawed randomness.

But there's no point to publicly divulge this discovery other than selling it for millions of bucks.

Agreed. Youtube "Derren Brown Roulette" for an interesting set of videos.

This excerpt taken from one of the above videos comments is quite interesting:

...The only guy I know who beat a roulette table sat and counted ball spins for 3 weeks until he had 20,000 draws, went back and ran them through custom software to determine the table was not level, then wrote a trading simulator to prove he could play a sequence and beat the house, and he did getting kicked out of casino after casino but making a mil before suffering a 'heart attack' at a Vegas Casino ..
