When it comes to gambling, Roulette is a firm favourite amongst players of all sorts. While some gamblers believe that the game is purely luck-based, others disagree. Many players enjoy trying to win or ‘beat’ the game using a host of different strategies. With so many different techniques out there, though, it can be difficult to know which one to go for. In this article, we explore the most popular Roulette strategies to increase your winnings.
One of the most popular strategies of all time is the D’Alembert. While other techniques may increase your chances of winning big, they also increase your chances of losing a large sum of cash. The D’Alembert is one of the safest strategies you can use because you only increase your bets at a small rate. The strategy is categorised as an even chance betting system; this means that it can be used on Odd-Even, Red-Black, and 1-18/19-36. Unfortunately, the theory behind the technique makes it unsuitable to used on the Columns and inside bets.
To use the D’Alembert, you must begin by choosing a starting bet. As the game plays out, you must increase your bets by one after each loss, and decrease them by one after a win. To explain the theory simply, once you have won as many times as you’ve lost, you will be in profit.
Reverse D’Alembert Strategy
If you know how to use the D’Alembert, using the Reverse D’Alembert is easy. In the original technique, you bet on any of the even chance bets, and increase your bet by one after each loss and decrease it after a win. Though this strategy can work well, if you’re on a losing streak it can be hard to turn the game around. With the Reverse D’Alembert, you do the exact opposite. Instead of increasing your bets after each loss and decreasing after a win, you increase by one after each win and decrease after a loss.
The Fibonacci is another popular strategy amongst gamblers. One of the great things about this technique is that you have the potential to win big without putting large amounts of cash on the line. When the Fibonacci first came about, it wasn’t designed to be used in Roulette. Instead, the technique was used as a mathematical theory where you begin with a set number, then add the two previous numbers in the sequence together to give you the next number. Over time, gamblers realised that this could work well in Roulette.
When using the Fibonacci, many players like to start at 1. However, you don’t have to start at 1 if you’d rather not. As long as you’re adding the two previous numbers in the sequence together, the strategy should work fine. The good thing about starting at 1, though, is that it is the safest bet to place. If you don’t have large amounts of spare cash to gamble, starting with smaller bets is always the safest option.
Again, if you know how to use the Fibonacci, applying the Reverse Fibonacci should be fairly simple. Instead of moving forward one number in the sequence after a loss, you move forward after a win. Many gamblers believe that the Reverse Fibonacci is the key to a winning streak.
Covering the table
This strategy is a little different to the previous four, as it can be achieved in a variety of ways. When playing roulette, many gamblers believe that covering a large amount of the roulette table will increase your chances of getting a win. However, it’s virtually impossible to win on every spin if you’ve got multiple bets placed over the table. Due to the odds of the game, many players believe that you would lose more often than you would win; therefore, gamblers would rarely make a profit by using this method. However, covering ‘most’ of the table is becoming a popular strategy. To do this, there are a variety of different techniques you can use. Below, we discuss some of the most popular.
Betting on 35 numbers
To cover ‘most’ of the table, some players choose to bet on 35 numbers. While this technique is a little risky, you have the potential to win big if luck is on your side. If you bet £2 on 35 different numbers, you are spending an initial cost of £70. On average, you’ll win more bets than you lose; however, for each win you will receive £2 in profit, but for each loss, you will lose £70. Winning big on this technique certainly requires an element of luck.
Bet on 17 Splits
Betting on 17 Splits is another technique used to cover ‘most’ of the table. In Roulette, a Split is a bet placed between two numbers that are next to each other on the table. By betting on 17 Splits, you’re essentially covering 34 different numbers – only one less than the technique above. While this strategy is similar to betting on 35 numbers, you’re only forking out an initial £34, rather than £70.
Bet on 5 Double Streets
The final way to cover ‘most’ of the table is by betting on 5 Double Streets. In Roulette, a Double Street is also known as a Line. By betting on 5 Double Streets at the same time, you’re covering 30 numbers in total.
Whether you’re an avid gambler or a complete beginner, Roulette can be enjoyed by players of all sorts. While some people firmly believe that the game is luck based, there is no harm in playing around with different Roulette strategies to test the outcome. You never know, you might just win big.
