Strategies to Win at Roulette
Roulette is strictly a game of chance, and there’s nothing you can do to influence or to predict where the ball will land. However, there are strategies you can use for your betting that will increase your chances of overall success.
Martingale Roulette Strategy
Under this strategy, each time you lose a bet, you double your next bet. You may lose again, but when you finally do win, your gain will be so big that it will offset your losses. You just need to be careful with your starting bet. Otherwise, you might run out of money before you can ever reach the win.
Reverse Martingale Strategy
As the name suggests, this strategy asks you to do the opposite of the Martingale strategy: Instead of doubling your bet after each loss, you double your bet after each win. When you lose, restart your bet to the lowest point.
This strategy is similar to the Martingale strategy, but it does not aggressively double the bet. Instead, it gradually increases the bet each time you lose and then decreases each time you win. You would increase or decrease by one “unit,” which could be a $1 chip or a $10 chip, for example. The key is to decide on the unit you will use and be consistent.
This strategy is also applied to “even” bets, which have a 1-to-1 payout. These bets include red/black, odd/even, and 1-18/19-36.
Fibonacci Roulette Strategy
Like the D’Alembert strategy, the Fibonacci strategy works best with even bets that have a higher chance of winning. This strategy takes its name from the Fibonacci number sequence, which builds on the sum of the previous two numbers. Starting from 0, the next number is 1. You add those two together and you get 1. You add 1 and 1 together and get two. A portion of the sequence goes like this:
0 – 1 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 13 – 21 – 34 – 55 – 89 – 144 – 233 – 377 – 610
Under the Fibonacci strategy, you would start with one betting unit, and if you lose, go up by the next number in the sequence. You keep increasing your bet in this way until you win. Then you go back two places from where you were when you won. Therefore, if you won at 8 units, you would make your next bet at 3 units.
James Bond Strategy
The famous spy developed this strategy in the movies, and fans everywhere have been using it. With this strategy, you bet $140 on the 19-36 space, $50 on the six line for numbers 13-18, and $10 on the number 0. You can bet different amounts in the same proportions.
Bankroll Management for Roulette
As with any casino game, the best bankroll strategy is to identify at the outset what you are willing to lose and then not to spend more than that. You have to know when to walk away, or else your losses will multiply exponentially. Sure, you always may win big on the next spin, but you can also lose big.
When you win, it’s a good idea to bank what you brought in so that eventually, you are just playing with the casino’s money. When that runs out, you’re done playing for the day, and you leave with what you brought in.
The betting strategy can get repetitive since you’re betting on the same numbers every time, but it can help you win big if the numbers are right.
Tips to Win at Roulette
Choose the Right Table
Every table has a minimum bet. Make sure you are playing at a table that can accommodate your bank roll and your betting strategy. Otherwise, you’ll lose your money fast, when playing at a smaller table could have kept you going longer to make wins and make gains.
Benefits of Using a Betting System
Roulette is a game of chance, so there aren’t a lot of rules or strategies to keep you focused. As a result, you can get lost in the “feeling” of betting and make emotional and irrational choices. Using a betting system can help you stay focused and can help you improve your odds.
Don’t get carried away or swayed by “what if”s. You can easily keep betting and losing money long past when you should have walked away. Know how much you want to risk, and stick to your plan. Then you’ll have enough to return for more fun gaming another day.
