====Strategy and probabilities====
Because the payouts are calculated based on an empty board, the odds favor the player as
the more balls fill the roulette wheel. For example, on an empty board, the payout of a single space (×12) matches its probability (1/12). After five spins, the payout remains the same, but the probability of a win increases to 1/7, giving the player a 71% edge on the final spin. This advantage (30.64% on average) in odds favors the player in the long run, but the small bet amounts inhibit winning fortunes quickly.
