Roulette is a popular mainstay in most casinos the world over, and more can be more recently found in a lot of online casinos on the Internet.
If you didn’t already know, the classic European-originated table betting game involves a spinning wheel and a small ball, as well as a table of betting options ranging from numbers to colours to even/odds. The dealer then spins the wheel and flicks the ball on to the wheel, and wherever the ball lands will be the result of that particular round of betting.
And although much of the game involves luck and prediction, there are actually several things that you may do to increase your chances of winning when it comes to playing roulette.
So how do you win in roulette? Furthermore, what is the best roulette strategy to ensure your success in the tables? This piece aims to shed light on the various facets of the seemingly simple yet intricate game of roulette.
How To Win In Roulette
Without further ado, here are some of the best ways to come out on top when it comes to playing the gentlemanly game of roulette.
The Martingale Roulette Betting Strategy
This is by far one of the most popular and well-known roulette strategies out there.
The Martingale betting strategy plays off the fact that you will eventually win when playing in a casino, regardless if it’s an online casino or a physical one.
This betting system is easily expressed in the form of this phrase, “I have to win sooner or later, right?” — a dangerous statement to those who do not have self-restraint, but a legit strategy in any other case.
The Martingale betting strategy is simple enough: Each time you lose a bet, double it the next round. This should eventually lead to a payout that is significant enough for you to at least break even.
Here’s an example: If a player bets $10 and loses, he/she now bets $20 and if it turns out to be a winning bet, the player has recouped their original $10 loss. But do not make the mistake of thinking that your next big win is just around the corner as you may easily go on a long string of losses as well.
In the above scenario, if the $20 bet loses, the player will double that to $40. If that bet loses again, they’ll go up to $80 and so on and so forth. In short, the exponential growth of your bets might be unmanageable quite quickly if you do not win a game within a few spins.
But if you do insist on adopting this roulette strategy, the best thing for you to do is to find a table which allows a low minimum bet. In addition, make sure the table’s maximum bet is large enough for the amount you want to start with to be equitable in the long term.
The Grand Martingale Roulette Betting Strategy
Working on the same principle as the standard Martingale betting strategy, the grand version operates on a bigger scale — as in, a bigger bet if you happen to lose each round.
In the Grand Martingale betting strategy, each time you lose a hand, double the next bet plus an extra amount equal to your original stake. Taking the abovementioned bet as an example, if you happen to lose a $10 bet, then using the Grand Martingale strategy you should bet $30 on the next spin.
This roulette betting strategy is perfect for those who have a cushy bankroll to spend. It can be quite profitable in relatively quick fashion, meaning you may walk away with a huge windfall with just a few wins. On the other hand, if you get stuck in the unfortunate scenario of losing, you must be able to weather the storm until you start winning again if you hope to come out with a profit.
The James Bond Roulette Betting Strategy
This is another betting strategy best suited for beginners. The James Bond betting strategy follows a combination of bets which gives you the best odds of winning in roulette. It should also be noted that this strategy works best when used over a short period of (betting) time.
For each round, you will need to play by multiples of $200. Utilising this betting strategy, a player will only bet on three options. First, place a bet for $140 on a number in between 19 to 36. The second bet will be $50 on a number from 13 to 18. Lastly, the final bet is $10 on a single zero.
This strategy works for most in that it essentially guarantees a win almost ⅔ of the time. And you’ll only lose if the ball drops on a number between 1 and 12 — which accounts for a ⅓ losing chance.
The Fibonacci Roulette Strategy
For players who are not inclined to doubling their bets often, the Fibonacci roulette betting strategy is an excellent alternative. This strategy offers a significantly lower risk of losing massively as compared to the other options — perfect for the conservative player.
The strategy is based on the famous Fibonacci numbers which entail a sequence of numbers that is the sum of the two numbers before it. For instance, the Fibonacci number sequence will look like this:
1 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 13 – 21 – 34 – 55 – 89 – 144 – 233 – 377 – 610 – 987
It is important to note that you should focus on betting only on even numbers only when you adopt this betting system. These bets will have a 50% chance of winning each round.
Start with the smallest bet possible. If you lose the first bet, increase the count by one. If you continue to lose again, increase the stake by two, and so on. However, once you win a hand, you move down two places in the sequence and go from there. And if you do manage to break even, restart the sequence.
As an example, a string of roulette rounds could possibly look like this:
|Round no.||Stake ($)||Win||Lose||Net Result ($)|
In this particular example, after 10 spins the player has only lost $1 even after hitting a staggering seven-round losing streak. In part due to the negative progression format, the winning $13 has wiped out most of the losses in a single round.
