You all may see me talk about avoiding scam software often, but I rarely show examples. I found just such an example today and it appears somewhat new. It’s a piece of software called the “Easy Money Bot.” This one targets online roulette and claims to be able to win money on autopilot.
The first clue that it is a scam is that it targets roulette. As any veteran gambler will tell you, roulette is a completely unbeatable casino game. Also known as a “fixed odds” game, roulette has odds that are fixed in place. There is no room for strategy in roulette whatsoever. No matter what strategy you employ, the odds of winning any bet in roulette are always the same.
Some games allow for at least some strategy that you can use to lower the house advantage a little, but roulette doesn’t even have that. I have nothing against roulette as a fun game, but it’s just wrong to tell people that they can beat roulette with any “super-secret” winning system.
The house advantage of roulette is built into the payouts offered by each wager. In a typical roulette wheel, there are 37 possible slots that a ball can land in. Winning bets are only paid as if there were 36 slots. This results in a small house advantage that cannot be overcome by any strategy, ever.
Even the most complicated betting systems in the world cannot beat roulette. Every single wager in roulette is a –EV wager based on the payouts. So no matter how you stagger or size your wagers, you always end up with a negative expected value on those wagers. No sum of –EV wagers combines to make a +EV wager.
People are always trying to find new ways to beat roulette, but the game is unbeatable. Roulette is 400 years old and people have been trying to find a way to beat the game for centuries. And in all that time, nobody has found a proven way to beat the game.
Well, actually there is one well-noted example of a man beating roulette many years ago after discovering that the casinos in his hometown were using faulty roulette wheels. He was able to win a substantial sum of money, but eventually the casino caught on and replaced the faulty wheels. And mind you, this was an actual physical roulette wheel, not some online casino.
But back to the Easy Money Bot scam. This piece of gambling software has not found some crack in the casino’s software. Online casinos receive real-time information on all wins and losses. If a roulette game was to be beaten for any substantial sum of money, the casino would investigate and promptly fix the leak.
And think about it like this… if someone was capable enough to hack into casino software, alter the payouts and get away clean, would that person really sell the system online to the public? Of course not.
Taking that point further, the Easy Money Bot does not even claim to hack the casino software. The software only claims to use “advanced mathematical formulas” to win money every time. As explained above, there is no such thing as math-based system that can beat roulette. This is a scam.
I’m not willing to download the software to my computer, but the FAQ page on the Easy Money Bot website claims that it can win 9 times out of 10. This is indicative that it is based on some variant of the Martingale System. The Martingale System is a well-known and thoroughly debunked betting system that simply does not work.
Scammers and Enablers
There will always be unethical people who will do anything to make a quick buck. These scammers will always be there trying to take your hard-earned money. They have no qualms with packaging turds in gold wrappers and selling them to anyone who falls for their lies.
Just as bad as the scammers are the enablers. In fact, it is the enablers who annoy me the most. For example, the gambling website CasinoCheers.com recommended this system in a recent blog post. These people are worse in my opinion because they provide a platform for scammers to spread their misinformation to the general public.
Without the enablers, the scammers would have a much harder time selling their crap to unsuspecting gamblers. People who run websites such as CasinoCheers.com give the rest of us a bad name. Here we are trying to maintain the legitimacy of the industry while people who run CasinoCheers.com do everything they can to tarnish the gambling industry.
The only thing I can tell you is to avoid these people and question everything you read on the internet. Any time someone tells you they have the newest secret method for beating the casino, it’s time to put on your Skeptical Hat.
But hey, you don’t have to take my word for it. Go download the software yourself and pay €69 to unlock the software. When you realize it was a rip-off, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
