I was wondering what the typical table limits and minimum bets are at roulette tables in Las Vegas casinos? I realize that there will be lots of different stakes tables but it would be interesting to know a few numbers.

The reason is this: I have been testing out a simple system with play money in one of the many online casinos and so far it has done me proud so far. I just want to know how it could pan out in practice.

Basically it is this:
The table has a minimum bet of $1 and a maximum of $200 per round if your bets are limited to the REDS and BLACKS squares. ($250 if you bet on individual numbers).

I have been betting like this:
My first bet is always $2 - either on reds or blacks - every time I loose I triple my last bet and switch to the other color. So the bets go 2,6,18,54,162 - then my winnings at each stage can be 2,4,10,28,82.

After that obviously I can either cut my losses OR try minimizing my loss by betting the full $200 (leaving me $42 in the red instead of $242).

I do realize that I am always betting against the odds but in practice this has at least proven to be a good way of racking up some good winnings before loosing out. Also I know I am probably not the first person to think of this system.

All I want to know is if I would be able to play like this for real money in Vegas or if the table limitations and/or casino policy and laws(??) would prohibit me from doing it?

Any info greatly appriciated!
