I was down to $50 in my Ultimate Bet account, and after 6 years, decided I was finally sick of poker. I needed $100 to be able to cash out, so I just decided to gamble and put it all on red. That gives me something like a 48% chance of doubling my money, but would there have been a better strategy?(I lost, btw).

On the 18th, I get $10 in my account due to rakeback-what is the best way to try and turn that into $100? I know its not a lot to work with, but its all I got. Thanks a lot. A couple years ago I wouldn't have even considered this, but I'm sick and tired of poker, and at this point, I have a better chance of winning via roulette. Thanks.

I'm a huge roulette player and over the last couple of years, i've been lucky enough to be on the positive side of variance as far as that game is concerned (and yes, I realize it is temporary, I cannot beat this game over the long term.)

And even with all that, I will be the first person to tell you that if you really want to double your money, roulette is not the right game to do it with.

Its all about EV and the truth is, roulette is one of the worst EV games out there. So if you are in a bind and you need to double your money, roulette is not the game to do it with. Try bacarrat or Pai Gow

But, if you have your heart set on playing roulette in order to double your money, then putting it all on red or black or even or odd or 1-18 or 19-36 is an okay strategy and preferably do this with the European wheel if you can.

It just happens that you did this and lost. *shrug*

that is why its called gambling. You essentially flipped a coin and lost. There is no magical strategy with this sort of bet so I don't really know what you are looking for.

If you really want to do this, then a single bet is the best way.

So 18 into 100... I'd just put the lot on 1,2,3,4,5,6 corner for one spin (or $3 on each of 1,2,3,4,5,6 if you prefer).

Just do one spin, only expose yourself to the vig once.

Trust me, I know its gambling. Actually, it would have been more foolish to leave the $50 sitting in there, cause then I couldn't withdraw it. Anyways, the advice is appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to reply.
