A story is told of a man who was banned from casinos across Britain after winning around $37,000. He used a secret betting pattern that he spent years perfecting. This is an interesting story since getting banned in one country didn't stop him relocating to another jurisdiction and using the same system.

Well, I wouldn't mind being banned with that amount of money in my custody. I would then go on to popularize my book and aim to make good sales. The problem with being famous in such a way is that every casino in the world would probably not allow you into their premises. They'd flag you up in their systems.

I think this man was a genius who decided to take his time and test the system. Who knows, perhaps he'd have gone on to lose all that money hadn't he been banned. I'm just wondering if people will still win after reading his book. I have my doubts.

Isn't this Balvinder Sambhi, who was banned from the Grosvenor casino chain and went on to sell a book about how to beat roulette? There are some really bad reviews of his strategy on Roulette Strategy (read them here). By all accounts his system doesn't work long term. It's based on Martingale and available on the web for free.

I think the whole story now makes sense. After winning, he didn't want to share his method of winning. It could have been that he was just lucky to apply his 'strategy' once or twice. Why then would he be banned if his trick wasn't going to work for long?

He's quite happy to share his strategy for £100 a time on Amazon, and maybe not-so-happy that it is online for free. It involves waiting until a set of numbers have not appeared for a number of spins, then placing bets Martingale-style until you win. There's a few people suggesting that his system worked for him because of a biased roulette wheel, because it doesn't work for anyone else.

I have his system. It isn't even close to anything that works.
When certain of the roulette system and teaching sites have large text on their page disassociating themselves from Balvinder Sambhi, that tells you how well his system (doesn't) work!

I think he was banned from the casino for trying to sell his system to casino punters! Not a very clever move ...

It's actually interesting that he won that much using a 'secret' strategy. @purple, why would he banned across Britain for wanting to sell system? Wouldn't he have been banned from just a few casinos?

I don't know.
There are at least two questions here:
1)Has he actually been banned across ALL casinos, or just a few? (Some casino chains are closely linked)
2)Did he actually win all that money, as he claims?

1) He was banned from the Grosvenor Casino chain, not every casino in the UK. They sent him a letter about it which he used.
2) It seems he did win the money.
The best comment I've seen on it is that if he sat at a roulette table taking comps for entire days while placing only one or two small bets, a casino is going to bar him whether he was winning or losing.

Is this a common thing whereby casinos ban people for winning or does it only happen when they suspect cheating or using systems that tip the odds in the player's favor as in this case?

Casinos are out to make a profit and because most of them are private enterprises they can ban you for no reason at all. They can even say to you things like: "You are free to play any other game except for ... (blackjack or roulette for instance).
I read somewhere that in some state casinos they can't ban you unless you are cheating, but if that were the case you could use a computer openly! (This of course would never be allowed).
If they don't like you for any reason, they can make your life so difficult and create losing conditions so that you are forced to leave or stop playing. So never create animosity with the casino staff or pit bosses.
That's my take on it anyway.

So what his strategy really wins is several months worth of free drinks and food for the price of two bets a day? I could get behind that!

I feel that that is such a waste of valuable time and effort. If someone's dreams are so small, then they really shouldn't be wasting their time in casinos and risking lifetime bans just for a few drinks. There are less risky ways of achieving the same.

Well, money isn't always the only thing that motivates people to play or gamble in the casinos. Sometimes it's more about the thrill and the excitement than it is about the financial reward.

I mean, he created a system for himself that works, something we all try to do, therefore I applaud him. I can't blame the casino for banning him, they don't like when someone has cracked the system.
