I also agree there is no such thing as a strategy, alltho i do play in a style that suits me by backing sections, such as

£10 on 13-24
£10 on 25-36
£1 on 0

in that spin you have about a 66% chance of winning somthing, problem comes when it loses, when i play roulette i like quick wins then bailing as obviosly the longer you play, more chance of losing due to house edge.

But i disagree that there is "no" strategy for rouletter, TECHNICALLY, if you had a wheel that had no table limit, and an infinate bankroll, you couldnt lose, as even if you bet red 100 times, you can just keep doubling up. As for the martangle system in general, Just avoid it, if you must use it, use the reverse martangle, so you bet £10 on black, if you lose you lower the bet rather than doubling it, to minimise losses and profit from streaks, but genrally avoid anything claiming to be a system.

Not my game but wouldn't the house edge just scale in the same proportion, just a question I've not done the maths?

Technically, if you had an infinite bankroll you'd have to train your pet spider monkey to place your bets and you'd be too drunk to know if you were winning or not.

to be fair, if we all had an infinate amount of money, there would be no gambling, i read somewhere bill gates, when he goes to vegas sticks to $5 a hand and only plays for like 30 mins, and to be fair you can understand why, when you have a bankroll of, 72,000,000,000 winning a few thousand would probly take longer than just sitting watching paint dry as ure intrest will be astronomical.

I do want a monkey tho.

Using the Martingale system, starting with a 1 dollar hand, he might not last 38 hands. It wouldn't take many consecutive losing hands to suddenly become very interesting.

The martingale theory whilst sounds great for a short time analysis it doesn’t account for factors like the coin landing on its edge, and ultimate wear on the coin where the atoms from migration from the surface it has landing upon and that surface having been dispersed to lead to no coin, with no heads or no tails.

You could add a new coin but the results would be the same, eventually there would be no coin to definitely prove the theory.

i will give you for free The best roulette strategy by far

1. Consider how much you want to win?, do you have £50 and want to win £500?

2. Do spins that will mean you will reach your desired cashout level in one spin, ie for £500, you should do a £14 spin on 1 number or £28 spin on a single

The reason why, is because most gamblers recycle huge amounts of cash until the HE has effectively wiped out there bankroll


The above way means you will lose most of the time, but when you win, you will WIN BIG ( and lets not forget the amount of times 2 numbers repeat within 16 spins on roulette FOBT)

this strategy means you will only give £13 ish pound out of 10 visits of £50 to the bookmaker, and so in the long run, you dont really lose that much( About a 1-2 fag packets if you smoke) a week. But have all the added benifits of the adrenaline rush....

if you want to recycle

cut your bankroll by 10 and use £5 and try get it up to £50

This is an interesting thread. I was under the impression that there is really no strategy in Roulette. Its pure luck if the ball lands on your number and you have no way of predicting it. I guess you could bet on black or red and that would probably reduce your exposure. But in the end its all down to pure luck. Am I wrong in thinking this way?

Most games have a "strategy" but a strategy will only help you to minimise your losses, it won't help you win long-term. There is a subtle difference between a "strategy" and a "system" with the latter purportedly helping a gambler to win in the long term. What is certain is that if a game has a house edge or it is a game of chance, no system or strategy can guarantee you will win long term. That is still down to good old "luck" :)

Thanks Simmo for clearing that up! I have only played roulette a few times and ended up coming out even which I felt was a positive result since I had no clue what I was doing. I do remember though I either chose 1-18 or 19-35, black or red (not all at the same time of course). I was bored after about 2 minutes though. I might have a small go in the future but for me I would only play roulette after cashing out if I had a spare few euro to play with.

My personal experince with roulette is a good one. I win more than I lose. Played 20 bucks on a cruise ship walked away with 600. 25 in vegas left with 1200. 120 at resorts world in queens and left with 400. I have my own strategies. Yes there is no way to beat a random system but you can improve your chances

I was reading the payment rules for the NO ZERO casino when:

"If a player plays on equal odds casino games, a 10% house fee will be taken from the player's net winnings at the end of the game session or upon a withdrawal of net winnings from the table through the cashier. The duration of the game session cannot exceed 24 hours. The house fee and restrictions are only in regards to equal odds games."

Don't even waste your time discussing roulette strategy on this forum go join a roulette forum .......I did. You can argue til your blue in the face betting 11 streets gives you an advantage, Most here will say nope it don't, YOu can argue betting 35 numbers is a pretty sure bet you'll win 1 or 2 times easy they'll say no you won't you can argue common sense cover 66 % of the board and triple up if you lose most times you'll win 3rd spin max and again you'll get a nope there's no winning strategy in roulette response. Trust me keeping roulette strategy discussions to a roulette forum is much more enjoyable and less frustrating. Do what works for you and makes it fun Most of the posters here love the slots.
As roulette players I hear you we like to design different strategies and methods of play in an attempt to beat the wheel I'll say this once It is super easy to put into practice a winning roulette strategy time and time again what kills you is time at the wheel. GET IN , WIN, GET OUT! I can do this time after time after time, So yeah put your definition on what's long term I consider winning short term repeatedly for the long term to be a long term strategy. But over here ...........Nope black is white and you ain't gonna change it.
Common sense dictates if you play a certain way and do it back to back constantly your gonna have a bad run if you employ progression it's gonna hurt so like I said take small wins and quit forget about winning all day every day cause it won't work. But you can win 1 or 2 times a day every day pretty easy.

The gambler's fallacy, also known as the Monte Carlo fallacy or the fallacy of the maturity of chances, is the mistaken belief that, if something happens more frequently than normal during some period, it will happen less frequently in the future, or that, if something happens less frequently than normal during some period, it will happen more frequently in the future (presumably as a means of balancing nature)

^^ Every single roulette "strategy" is based on the above afaik . Your "safe" systems are no different than going to the bookies and betting on Roger Federer beating his unknown 1st round opponent in tennis . Yes you win nearly all the time but the oddsmakers will build in an edge so when you DO finally lose you will lose more than you have built up in winnings . Roulette has a built in edge and there's no way of getting around that . The systems you describe above are just banking on the hope that a longshot won't come in TODAY or before you hit your target winnings but the longshots (like losing 3 times in a row when you have 2/3rds of the board covered) DO come in sometimes , unfortunately slightly more often than the odds you are getting paid for them not to

The only working roulette strategy is to decide what your bankroll is and what your goal is. Then you either quit when you lose everything or cash out when you reach your goal.
