ROULETTE STRATEGIES

How to Win at Roulette

Contrary to popular belief, there are no sure fired strategies that will give a player an edge over the casino in roulette (European or American). Every new spin of the wheel is a isolated event of chance, and every possible bet associated with each spin carries a casino edge. Bearing this in mind, here are a couple of popular systems which some punters have found useful in the past.

Red/Black Roulette System

The red/black system is a form of Martingale (double up on successive bets) system and is one of the better known roulette systems around. Your bets for this system are on either red or black, with your pay out 1 to 1 (i.e. double your money for a win). It is worth bearing in mind that your chances of winning each bet are just under 50/50 (remember the 0 and 00 that gives the casino its advantage).

You begin by choosing a colour and placing your bet on either red or black. Be sure to make your first bet a small one. If you win, keep your winnings and place your starting bet again. If you lose, double your stake and place a bet on the same colour again. If this bet wins, your net result after two bets is the same as if you had one you initial bet. Keep your winnings and begin with your starting stake again. If your second bet loses, double your stake again, and continue doing this until your colour does come up, at which point your net win from the string of bets will be the same as if you won your starting bet.

Now you know why it is important to start with a small bet. It doesn’t take too many losing bets in a row for your bet amount to climb to quite a big number. But keep your nerve, the key is being prepared to continue to double up until you have a win. Also be very aware of the table bet limit - if you reach this before you have a win then you stand to lose a considerable amount.

5 Numbers Roulette System

This strategy calls for straight-up inside bets where you get paid 35 to 1 if you win. You will place your bets on five individual numbers. Don’t forget 0 and 00 are part of the inside numbers you can wager on. Pick any five numbers, they all have the exact same chance of winning. Find a game where the minimum bet is no more than $5 and buy forty $1 chips ($40). If you limit yourself to relatively small stakes you can’t get badly hurt. With this system you hope to get lucky two consecutive times.

Start by placing one chip on each of your five chosen numbers. Repeat this same wager until you win - you have enough chips for eight tries. When the ball comes to rest on one of your numbers, you win 35 chips. Divide the 35 chips over your five number fields, seven on each. If you hit again the pay off will be 7 x 35 = $245. No matter what the outcome, this was your last spin. Smart gamblers know when to quit.

D'Alembert or Cancellation System

This one requires a bit of practice. The logic behind it that over time, two events with the same probability will happen approximately the same number of times (think of flipping a coin), but this system counts on this happening sooner than later.

The system works on even-money bets, like black/white or odd/even. The goal is to win 10 units in a game – what a "unit" means is up to you. Start by making 10 marks on a piece of paper – each mark represents one unit. Add the first number and the last number, then wager that many units. If you win, cross off both numbers. If you lose, add how many units you lost to the right hand side.

Keep going until all numbers have been marked off. Mathematically, there are only two outcomes: you either win 10 units, or you lose your entire bankroll. Because a losing streak can rack up numbers very quickly, requiring ever higher bets, it is somewhat risky. Naturally, the higher your starting bankroll is the more rounds you will be able to play, and the more likely it is you will win 10 units.

Five Quad

This strategy involves placing five corner/quad bets plus a single straight up number bet. Select a number that is not included in the corner bets so that you cover a total of 21 numbers per round. Bet one chip for each – a total of 6 chips per round.

Since quad bets pay 8:1, winning one of these means a profit of three chips. Winning the straight up bet is a profit of 30 chips. These small profits won’t make you rich, but they will make good use of your bankroll, and will extend your time at the table.

Double Street Quad

This strategy involves wagering six chips per spin: two chips each on two double streets, one chip on a quad, and one chip on a straight up number. This pattern will cover 17 numbers across the board, and it will cover the wheel very well, ensuring that there are never more than 5 adjacent slots on the wheel that are not ready to pay out.

Since double street bets pay 5:1 and you have 2 chips on each one, landing one of these numbers means a profit of 4 chips. Quad bets pay 8:1, offering a profit of 3 chips. Finally, the straight up bet pays 35:1, giving a nice 30-chip profit. Like the Five Quad system, the Double Street Quad is designed to help players bet wisely, and while it can pay out over time, it is best used for casual play.

The Dopey Experiment

This system was invented by Andres Martinez, a lawyer and Wall Street Journal Reporter. He first described it in his book 24/7: Living It Up and Doubling Down in the New Las Vegas. It does not claim to work – instead, it just offers a way to manage your funds and have a good time playing roulette.

First, take your bankroll and divide it into 35 equal units. Then, pick a single number, and keep betting on that same spot 35 times in a row. If you win (chances are good that you will), just keep playing using the casino’s money. If you lose – well, that’s life. Needless to say, this system is not recommended for serious players.
