There isn’t only one roulette strategy to win. So, which strategy do you choose?
It all depends on the time you have to spare, the money you want to wager, and a little bit of a gut feeling.
Like with most things in life, knowledge is power, so the more you know about each strategy, the better equipped you will be to choose the right strategy.
Below are explanations of the 5 best roulette strategies available.
Probably the best-known strategy, the Martingale, is popular due to its simplicity. The idea is that you double your roulette bet every time you lose.
To effectively use the Martingale roulette strategy, you are best off placing even money outside bets. Ideally, start with the minimum bet.
Your bet progression would look as follows:
1 – 2 – 4 – 8 – 16 – 32 – 64 – 128 – 256 – 512
This isn’t the most successful roulette strategy of all because at some point you will hit the maximum table limit, possibly without a win.
Who wouldn’t want to try out a strategy named after 007 himself? As opposed to most other strategies, the James Bond system requires you to wager the same amount on every betting round.
The idea behind this strategy is to place very specific bets across the roulette board. This system requires you to be able to split your bet stake into 20 units, and should be placed as follows:
- 14 units on 19-36
- 5 units on the Line Bet 13-14-15-16-17-18
- 1 unit on 0
Named for the famed Italian mathematician Leonardo of Pisa, this betting sequence mirrors the sequence often known as the golden ratio.
With this system each number is made up of the sum of the previous two numbers in the sequence:
1 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 13 – 21 – 34 – 55
The Fibonacci strategy only works on even-money bets, such as Odd/Even or Red/Black.
Often seen as one of the most successful roulette strategies because of the possibility of exponential wins. Of course, it’s not foolproof, as at some point your funds might run out, or you might hit the maximum table limit.
One of the more complex but also possibly the most successful roulette strategy. With this strategy, the first step is to decide exactly how much you will bet and for how long you will play.
The first part requires you to decide on a sequence of numbers. This can be any sequence.
Labouchere, like Fibonacci and Martingale, is also an even betting system.
The basic idea behind it is to increase your stake after losing bets. In doing so, you should theoretically slowly recoup your losses over several smaller bets.
Another even number betting strategy, D’Alembert has a much flatter progression than its counterparts. Winning back your losses might be a little slower, but your losses will also be much less over the same amount of time.
You can argue this is the most successful roulette strategy as it is one of the safest and easiest to play.
To use this system, you gradually increase your bet after losing a game, and gradually decrease your bet after winning.
