Roulette is a game of probabilities where luck will always have an influence on the outcome, however, there are strategies designed to maximize these chances of making a profit. Another advantage of following a strategy is that there is a rationale behind our bets, which makes the game more interesting and less purely random.
Over the centuries, various strategies for roulette have been developed and adapted. That's why we prepared this article for you! Find out here what are the 4 most successful roulette strategies of all time.
Roulette strategies are standardized ways of playing that aim to maximize player odds against casino odds. But there are no foolproof strategies. Otherwise, the game would not be profitable for the casinos and would quickly disappear…
Even if a strategy seems to you, mathematically, infallible, the truth is that casinos have mechanisms to protect themselves from them, such as setting a maximum bet limit, for example.
Is there any Roulette strategy that will guarantee you some profit?
No, there is not.
This does not mean, however, that there are no strategies for winning at roulette that place the house edge very close to the minimum and that place the players' odds closer to the maximum.
In this article we will introduce you to the most popular strategies. Come on!
The roulette strategies that will be presented to you next are all strategies that are progressive. This means that, each time you lose, you increase the value of the next bet. The difference between them is the speed with which this increase is made, according to the risk you want to take.
This progressive approach is based on the premise that if something has a certain probability of happening, it will eventually happen, sooner or later, and that this value will compensate for previous losses.
In order to overcome short-term variance, it is essential to be consistent in following the same pattern, to let probabilities do their work in the long run.
This type of bet is placed on selections that have approximately a 50% chance of being a winner on each play.
The payout for these bets is 2x, that is, you either lose your money or you double the amount wagered (ex: in a €1 bet, you either lose €1 or you win €1 and therefore keep €2).
Like we said, this 50/50 strategy is used only on sections of the game where the odds are approximately 50/50. These bets are located on the outside of the roulette wheel and correspond to three pairs of bets:
- Red Black;
- Even / Odd;
- Low (1-18) / High (19-36).
At this point it is important to correct a misinterpretation that players usually make, which is called the gambler's fallacy.
It is common to hear people say “bet red until it comes out”, but in mathematical terms, the chance of getting it right is exactly the same in the 6 bets mentioned. Each new move is completely independent of the previous ones, so it doesn't make sense to bet on red just because "it hasn't come out for 5 moves, so now it's more likely to come out", which is incorrect reasoning. This fact is more noticeable if we think about tossing a coin, in which we instinctively know that it is random to come up with heads or tails, and that the previous result says nothing about the next one. In short, it is indifferent to bet red/red/red or red/pair/low. You can bet on any of the 6 at any time.
Did you get the basic principle behind it?
Great, let’s then move on to our favorite and most successful roulette strategies.
Also called the duplication strategy, this is undoubtedly the most famous roulette strategy.
At Martingale you will double the amount you bet with each losing bet until you win.
1 – 2 – 4 – 8 – 16 – 32 – 64 – 128 – 256 – 512 – …
With the winnings from your winning move, you will not only be compensated for the lost spins, but you will also make a profit!
It is recommended to set a very low starting value to start with this strategy. Because, whenever your bet wins, you must return to that amount in the next bet and resume the process.
So, in sum:
- If you lose, double the bet;
- If you win, start over.
La Bouchére Strategy
Like Martingale, this is a very simple strategy to implement.
There are numerous variations of this game system. Some use a lot of money, others are a little more restrained.
Let's take this line of numbers as an example: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.
Each number is a betting unit. You determine what this unit represents. The first bet adds the first number (1) with the last number (5) which gives (6). Every time you lose your bet, you add the last bet total to your column, so you will have 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. If you win the next bet (1 + 6) by 70 units, you will be ahead by 10 units. Now subtract the 1 and the 6. Instead of winning, if you lose this bet, add a 7 to the end of the number sequence.
Whenever you win a bet, you cancel the first and last number, giving you 2, 3, 4, 5. Win again and it will be 3 and 4. If you lose, you will now have 3, 4 and 5 as the straight. Now, if you win that 3+5 bet, your next bet will be the 4, and if you win, it's the jackpot, you'll own the casino, or at least you can buy a fancy dinner for two.
Our best advice is: keep your betting units low so you can withstand a long losing streak that will inevitably occur.
The D'Alembert roulette system or strategy is one of many systems developed by French mathematicians in the 18th and 19th centuries. It is a progressive method of roulette, whereby the bet size is increased when you lose and the bet size is reduced when winning.
Very similar to the Martingale strategy, but with a (much) slower progression of values. Instead of doubling the amount you bet, you will actually add 1 dollar more to the next bet. However, when you win a bet, you must take one dollar from your bet.
The D'Alembert system is based on the theory that all deviations from the mean, in the short run, tend to rebalance. Applied to roulette, the theory tells us that, for example, a sequence of consecutive red numbers only makes it more likely that a similar sequence of black numbers will happen.
Based on these premises, the D'Alembert strategy is one of the simplest to put into practice at the roulette table:
- Choose a 50/50 bet (black/red, even/odd, etc.)
- Always place your bets on the same half you chose
- Increase your bet by a unit of currency every time you lose
- Decrease your bet by one unit every time you win
Music fans may already be familiar with the Fibonacci sequence. One of the great discoveries of humanity, which helps us understand the science of practically everything! While there are some similarities with the Martingale strategy, there are also some differences.
Check out this sequence:
1 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 13 – 21 – 34 – 55 – …
As you can see, each number is formed by the sum of the previous numbers in the list.
For each losing bet, add the amount bet on the two previous moves and bet again until you win.
A winning bet only recovers a part of the losses from that cycle so far, so it is necessary to stay in that cycle. Therefore, you must go back two positions and bet the respective amount.
The cycle is complete when you win until you make one unit of profit, which is when you go back to the beginning of the sequence. At that moment, the bettor starts a new cycle with the value of the initial bet, which corresponds to the same as the previous play.
► If you lose, advance one position;
► If you win, move back two positions.
