Roulette strategiesOn November 10, 2022 by Katherine Little
Roulette is an extremely popular game that dates back to the 18th century. It is among the most popular casino games and is available in virtual versions, in Live Casino versions, in physical casinos, and other casino gaming venues.
Since the game was created, several people have tried to invent unique strategies to beat the house. Many of these strategies are still used to this day, and some even believe it is possible to beat the house with them. Unfortunately, this is not possible, as all the strategies have their weaknesses, which ultimately give the house the advantage. However, there are still good reasons to use these strategies. They can help make the experience of playing the many different versions of roulette more fun and interesting. Read on for a closer look at these strategies, where we will also look at what the advantages and disadvantages are.
Martingale is one of the most popular strategies, which in theory can beat the house. In this strategy, you have to double the bet every time you lose, and reset it every time you win. In theory, this is a bulletproof strategy, but there are limitations that make it fail. Find out what those limitations are and learn all about Martingale in this section.
The Paroli strategy is also known as the Reverse Martingale, since the purpose of this strategy is to double the bet on every win and reset it to the original on every loss. The strategy is based on the assumption that wins and losses come in streaks. With this assumption, this strategy will maximize wins when the table is hot and minimize losses when the table is cold. How many times should you double your bet? That’s the important question with Paroli, which you can read all about in this section.
D’Alembert is a very simple strategy, where for every win and every loss you have to change the bet by one unit. On losses you increase it by one unit, whereas on wins you decrease it by one unit. The aim of this strategy is that you will be guaranteed profit when you have achieved as many winning rounds as losing ones. How does this work in reality? Find out this and much more in this section.
Tier et Tout
In this strategy, you are supposed to win within two betting rounds. The amount you have must always be divided into three. Here, the first third should be placed as a bet, followed by the next third if you lose the first bet. When the amount cannot be divided by three, you split the highest possible amount and put the rest aside as profit. As long as a win is achieved within two rounds, Tier One Tout works perfectly. The question is how long will it work? In this section we’ll explain it to you.
Labouchere is a particularly interesting and different strategy. In this strategy, you are supposed to write down a series of numbers. Your bets are then based on the outer numbers, and with each loss you have to add another number to the row, whereas with each win you have to remove two. The goal is to get all numbers removed. If successful, this will result in a win equal to the sum of the first row. Sound exciting? Read this section where we will explain it all to you.
The Hollandish strategy is similar to Martingale, with the advantage that the risk is less. In this strategy, you always bet in a sequence of three. If you have lost after the shoe has finished playing, you start a new shoe with a higher stake. This is repeated until your initial balance is higher than it was at the start, after which the bet is reset to the original. In this section you will learn how much to increase the bet by, and all other essential details about Hollandish.
Like the Paroli strategy, Oscar’s Grind is based on the assumption that wins and losses come in streaks. In this strategy, wins are achieved by increasing the bet on a win if you don’t have a profit. On a loss, the bet will always remain unchanged. When a total profit is made, the bet is reset to the original. However, there is an important exception to the rule of increasing the bet, which you will learn more about in this section.
Kavouras Bet is a unique strategy with a number of differences from the others. This strategy has often been described as chaotic, in that you have to play from a large bet pattern across the table. There can be many bets that need to be placed. However, one advantage of Kavouras Bet is that wins happen more often than with the other strategies, as more than half of the table’s numbers are covered. What the pattern looks like and how much to bet is revealed in this section.
