Roulette systems worth knowing

Roulette is a hugely popular game online, and everyone wants to know the best roulette tips, to learn how to win consistently and beat the odds. This is where it pays to understand some of the different roulette systems. Today we are going to look at some of the most successful roulette online systems being used today.

The Martingale

This is the most famous roulette system of all time, which is also very popular with online dice games. The basic idea is that you just double you bets every time, until you win. With a big enough bankroll, this should lead to a guaranteed win every time, however in practice, most casinos have actually stopped this being a guaranteed winner by creating maximum wager limits.

The Reverse Martingale

As you would expect this is pretty much the reverse of the Martingale, where you double your wager after each win, but stop after a loss. Over the long term this is equally risky, but as with the normal Martingale, you can adapt it to create extended systems which lower the risk somewhat, usually by stretching the losses or wins.

D’Alembert Roulette Strategy

This roulette strategy is so-called after the frenchman Jean-Baptiste le Rond d’Alembert. He believed, wrongly as it turns out, that for every time a coin toss returned a head, the chance of getting a tail was increased. So for a set stake in his system, you start with, lets say £10, if you lose, you stake £20, if you lose again you stake £30, each time increasing by your original stake. In theory you should eventually cover your losses and gain a profit.

The Contra D’Alembert Roulette System

The formal name for this roulette strategy simply means The Reverse D’Alembert Roulette System. The system is as you would expect, following a loss the base bet has the base bet added, and following a loss the base bet is the previous bet minus the base bet. For example starting with £10, it would be £20, win again, £30, but then lose, £20. The reverse suits winning streaks, but is equally as fallible as the normal D’Alembert.

The Fibonacci Roulette Strategy

As you may suspect from the name, this roulette system applies the well known Fibonacci mathematical sequence, generally known for illustrating patterns in nature. The wagering sequence follows the fibonacci sequence, raising in value 1 step forward for each loss and two steps back for each win, with the wager always being the sum of the previous numbers in the sequence. There is, of course, a corresponding reverse of the system, but it will not be included in this list, as in practice, it is rarely very successful.

Labouchere Roulette Strategy

This is probably the second most famous roulette strategy, which has been named after the English aristocrat Henry Labouchere. In essence it is another negative progression, meaning wagers are increased after losses, similar to the classic Martingale. It is more balanced however, as it attempts to recoup a players losses over a number of rolls rather than all in one.

The system really needs a pen and paper as it is slightly more complicated to work out. So here goes, lets say you want to get £10 profit;

  • Divide 10 into a number sequence, we’ll say 3 numbers for this example
  • 10 = 1, 2, 3, 4 (these can be any numbers, as long as they add up to 10)
  • Bet the first and last, so 1+4 = 5
  • If it losses add the 5 to the end to make 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
  • Then bet first and last, so 1+5 = 6
  • If it wins, erase the first and last to leave 2, 3, 4
  • Bet first and last so 2+4 = 6
  • If it wins erase the first and last which just leaves 3
  • Bet 3, if it wins, total profit will be 6

Each win the first and last numbers are erased, each loss the wager is added to the set of numbers. This continues until the set is complete, and desired profit is earned, at which point another set of numbers is chosen it starts again.

These are a few of the most famous roulette systems to help you play roulette online, but always remember only bet money you can afford to lose.
