What is a fair game?  Is the game of roulette as played in American casinos a fair game?  Why?

Oct 8th, 2015

A fair game is a game which is unbiased towards any player and also offers a fair amount of probability for each player, indeterminate of skill. Despite the initial perception, casino roulette is considered a fair game because it is not geared toward a specific player and the odds of winning although low are given equally.

However, are you sure that roulette is fair - not biased?  You might do a little more research on this.

Yes i'm sure mainly because there is not a bias towards a specific player regardless of the low odds or raw chance. Also many times I noticed when discussing fair games in statistics casino games are also often mentioned due to this aspect.
