Roulette is one of the most popular games in the world, and one of the easiest for beginners. While it is a game of chance, certain strategies can help players stay in the game longer, or even make money if they’re lucky enough.
Below are three of the most tried-and-true roulette strategies you can try out.
The Martingale strategy is the most popular casino strategy, not only in roulette but in several other games as well.
Here, players double down on their bets, which they continue to place on the same outcome following losses. For wins, they keep their bet the same.
There is another version of this strategy called the ‘Reverse Martingale’ in which bets are doubled following wins.
Based on the mathematical “Fibonacci Sequence,” this is another bankroll-management strategy. Your betting pattern is informed by the sequence: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, etc.
Following losses, you increase your bet in line with the sequence; following wins, you continue the sequence, but go back by two numbers.
The strategies mentioned above are unpredictable, but the D’Alembert strategy is much safer.
In this strategy, all you have to do is increase your bet by 1 (on the same outcome) after losing. After a win, players should decrease the bet by 1 (still on the same outcome).
Another strategy worthy of mention is the James Bond strategy. This one is only for hard-core gamblers willing to throw $200 down on a single spin of the wheel.
And if you win, you win; if you lose, you lose. Warning: you’ll need a big bankroll for this one.
All these strategies depend on bankroll management, which is a critical aspect of fast-paced casino games like roulette. Please note, however, that none of these strategies can guarantee successful outcomes, as the game remains entirely based on chance.
