When gamblers decide to take things more seriously they generally turn to strategy guides. This is the right move, since even the most basic strategies can have enormous benefits. It may not seem like it but a strategy can be the difference between winning and losing. Of course no strategy is infallible, and losing is an inevitable part of gambling. But there is still enormous potential from stepping up your basic approach.
As far as Roulette is concerned there are numerous strategies. Let’s take a look at a few of the most popular. All are simple enough for anyone to use at leading play live sites.
The Martingale System
You’ve probably heard of the Martingale System given how popular it is. It is also so simple that it can be used immediately, with just a few simple rules that need to be followed. First, choose red or black, then stick with it for the entirety of the session. Let’s say black, and let’s use a basic currency unit of 5. 5 is bet on black, if the bet loses, another 5 is added, giving a total bet of 10. If the bet loses again, 10 is added, giving a total bet of 20. This process repeats, and if the bet wins, the profits are taken and the cycle starts again at 5.
This simple system is incredibly effective, but will collapse once the table betting maximum is hit. It’s perfect for beginners looking to start taking strategies seriously.
Just as simple as the Martingale, but just as effective, we have the D’Alembert System. The principals are more or less the same, except for a single unit being added or deducted based on the winning pattern. Put your betting unit on black, again let’s assume 5. If the bet loses, add 1, now we have 6. If it losses again, we add another 1 for a total of 7. If the bet loses, simply deduct a single unit.
One of the best parts of this strategy is that it has a built in failsafe system. If your bet ever hits 0 you know it’s time to probably take a break. What is most fascinating is that you’ll quickly find that the bet avoids hitting 0 for a very long time, making it very clear just how gambling works in the long term.
The Fibonacci System
This system is also relatively well known, though not as popular as the previous. The idea is simple, involving betting amounts increasing exponentially. For those unaware, the Fibonacci System is the adding of the previous 2 numbers in a sequence. So it goes like this; 1 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 13.
It may seem confusing at first, but the logic behind the system is sound. Given the exponential increase it ultimately means that profit can be made, even if more bets are lost than won. Assuming long term playing.
Regardless of the strategy, keep track of your bankroll and always bet smart.
