A Bad Day in Las Vegas.....

A lady was having a bad day at the roulette tables in Vegas. Down to her last $100 and completely exasperated, she cried, "What rotten luck! What in the world should I do now?"
-
A man next to her, trying to calm her down a bit, suggested, "I don't know, why don't you play your age?"
-
He walked away. Moments later, he heard a big commotion at the roulette table. Maybe, she won!
-
He rushed back to the table and pushed his way through the crowd. When he got there he was stunned to see the lady lying on the floor, with the table operator kneeling over her.
-
He asked, "What happened? Is she all right?"
-
The operator replied, "I don't know, buddy. She put all her money on 29 and when 36 came up she fainted!"

I don't know how to play roulette -so pardon the dumb question...but how high do the numbers on the wheel go? I will admit I am mid-50's and I would play my number all day long!

I'm not sure without checking with a web site so I checked, Wikpedia and one other site (Wizard of odds) Wizard said the odds on a single zero wheel are 1 in 37 so the numbers go from zero through 36 inclusive

Wiki says "The pockets of the roulette wheel are numbered from 1 to 36." which of course is wrong, cause there is that zero and zero-zero to contend with

if the ball falls on your number you get 36x what you bet

Of course the odds of that happening are one in 38 on a 00 wheel. so YOU LOOSE given enough time.. The house always wins.

My daughter found out how to play blackjack 8 hours a day and always come away a winner..... She's the dealer.
