Out of all regular casino games, Roulette is definitely one of the most successful ones. That is the main reason why so many players have devised a lot of systems meant to beat Roulette. You can also attribute this to the fact that the game generally goes at a rather leisurely pace so players have plenty of time to make bets between the spins.Here are some of the biggest systems out there:
- The Martingale system
This is one of the oldest betting systems for Roulette. A lot of novice players will give this one a try first because it is rather simple. The Martingale is a double-up-after-you-lose progressive betting system. What this means is that after every bet you lose you will double the size of your next bet. This tactic assumes the fact that if you keep doubling your bet after every loss, an eventual win will recoup your losses and also give you a profit.
- The Laboucher or Cancellation System
To start using this system you will first have to pick a sequence of numbers, for example 1-2-3-4-5. Each of these numbers will represent a unit of betting and the sum of numbers will represent the win goal.
You will start by making your first bet the sum of the first and last numbers in the sequence you have selected. If you lose this best, the amount of that bet will be added to the end of the sequence. Your next bet will yet again be the sum of the first and last numbers in the new sequence.
This system is pretty straightforward. Every time you win a bet you will cross off the first and last numbers in the sequence and each time you lose a bet you will add the amount lost to the end of your sequence of numbers.
- The d’Alembert System
The basis for this system is that you will decrease your bet by one unit after a win and increase your bet by one unit after a loss. A lot of people say that this system is based on the “Law of Equilibrium”. Sadly for them the Roulette wheel is not aware of such a law so things will probably not level out in the long run.
- The Paroli System
This style of betting system is designed to take advantage of hot streaks a player might have. It has a very aggressive up-as-you-win betting progression. You will start off by making an initial one unit bet and as long as you keep losing you will only bet 1 unit. As soon as you get a win you will make your next bet double the first plus one unit. If you win again you will double again and add another unit. The only real problem that this system faces is that you never know when you will get a win streak so you can’t always capitalize properly with it.
