1. Martingales

Information: The Martingale strategy, also known as the doubling trick, is the most popular roulette system. The strategy is based on negative progression so you only bet on single chances and always increase your stakes after you suffer a loss.

Expert evaluation: We do not recommend using the Martingale strategy. Even if you choose the optimal stake of 1% of your budget, a series of seven losses in a row could consume your entire budget and you suffer a total loss.

2. D’Alembert

Information: A particularly simple and beginner-friendly roulette strategy is the D’Alembert system. This way of playing follows a progression system, with both losses and winnings affecting your next bet. You start with a basic stake on an easy chance and if you lose, you place an extra stake, and if you win, you place one stake less.

Expert evaluation: Similar to the Martingale system, the D’Alembert strategy also has the big problem that there is a negative progression and thus there is the risk of suffering a total loss of the budget. Overall, however, this variant of the game is significantly less risky than Martingale.

3. Paroli

Information: Paroli is the reverse Martingale strategy, i.e. a positive progression strategy. If you win, you double your stakes. So you are forcing the bank into the Martingale and trying to exploit the weakness of the system in your favor.

Expert rating: The risk with this roulette system is minimal, as you only risk your basic stake per game run. So you have a good overview of your finances and are not exposed to the risk of a total loss. However, the Paroli strategy requires a lot of patience and great self-discipline. In a winning streak, it is important to find the right time to pay out the winnings during a run, or you will lose them completely back to the bank.

4. Parlay

Information: The Parlay Roulette strategy is a positive progression with bets on easy odds. You set a series of numbers and follow it to the end in order to be able to achieve a guaranteed profit.

Expert Rating: The Parlay System is the safest and most promising of the progressive roulette strategies. If you follow the guidelines of your series of numbers in a disciplined manner and have chosen the numbers wisely, you have a good chance of leaving the casino with a profit at the end of the day.

5. Labouchere

Information: Like some other betting systems, the Labouchere system refers to wagers on simple odds that follow a series of numbers. The numbers in the row describe your bets and you always add the first and last number in the row to determine the total amount of your bet. If you have managed to cross out all the numbers in the series, you have made a sure win.

Expert Rating: The Labouchere System is a very interesting roulette strategy that can bring you sure winnings. However, Labouchere also harbors the risk that in the event of several losses in a row you will blow your personal budget or reach the maximum table limit and end up with nothing. The selection of the series of numbers and the determination of the value of a unit should therefore be carefully considered.

6. Fibonacci

Information: The Fibonacci system follows a mathematical formula and, like all roulette strategies presented so far, is a progressive betting system. In the Fibonacci strategy you play with a series of numbers in which the following number is always calculated from the sum of the two preceding numbers (1-1-2-3-5-8-13-21-34-55-89 etc.) . The 1 is a basic stake, the 8 is eight basic stakes, etc. It is therefore important that you do not set your basic stake too high (max. 2% of your total budget).

Expert rating: this system by the mathematician Fibonacci works! You only need to win a third of your bets to successfully complete a game round and collect a stake as a profit. The weakness of the system is again the negative progression, which can cause you to reach your budget limit after a bad run of many defeats one after the other and suffer a total loss.

7. Oscar’s Grind

Information: How this roulette strategy got its name is not known, but it was first introduced in the book “The Casino Gambler’s Guide” by Allan Wilson. Again, it is a progressive betting system. Whenever you win you bet one more unit, when you lose you bet the same amount again. So with the following bet you always make up for the loss from the previous bet and one unit of profit. If you have won a unit, i.e. your basic stake, you can start again with the basic stake in order to secure the guaranteed profit (example: bet 6) or continue and increase your bet in order to increase your profit (example: bet 8) .

Expert Rating: While this roulette progression system can bring you a lot of fun and excitement, it is difficult to make a big profit here. If you expect too much, your hard-won profit can quickly disappear again. On the other hand, if you pursue this strategy, you only enjoy a relatively low risk of high losses.

8. Shotwell

Information: The Shotwell system focuses on number bets and therefore, unlike most other roulette strategies, does not pursue any negative or positive progression of the bet. You bet on a total of 10 numbers and you need five bets. A bet is made on a double straight (six numbers) and four individual numbers, so that at least every fourth number in the wheel gives you a profit. Theoretically, you would either win back your stake every fourth playthrough if one of the six numbers on the double straight falls, or get your 36-fold stake back if one of the four individual numbers is hit.

Expert rating: The Shotwell strategy is an interesting roulette system that can bring you hours of excitement and fun. Even if this way of playing brings you some nice winnings with a bit of luck, it does not reduce the house edge of the casino and so you ultimately have exactly the same chances of winning as if you were to bet any 10 numbers with 5 tokens.

9. Red

Information: The Red System wants to take advantage of the fact that the third column of the roulette table comprises eight red numbers and only four black fields. With a bet on black and a bet on the third column, you can cover 26 whole numbers and thus two more than if you were, for example, betting on the first column and black. The red system also works as a black system with a bet on the middle column and red.

Expert evaluation: The Red strategy puts you in a favorable starting position in order to achieve a small profit with many rounds of the game. So you only lose your stake with 11 numbers, with 8 numbers you do not lose or profit from the game and with 18 numbers you make a profit. Even with this roulette strategy, the house advantage of the game remains, which means that you will make small losses in the long run, even with this strategy, if you do not catch a lucky streak. Using the Red system in La Partage Roulette, which freezes the stakes on outside bets when the zero drops, further increases your chances of winning.

10. Hidden Dozen

Information: The strategy of the hidden dozen is one of many roulette systems that was developed by an online roulette player who offers the trick and the associated software for purchase on the Internet. Since the software offered only makes your work easier, you can also use the system at no cost. The inventor of the strategy is based on the assumption that the roulette ball in a casino has no memory, but the automatic roulette online games controlled by the random generator do. When 27 different numbers have come down, there are a dozen numbers left that you should focus your game on, as these, according to the developer of Hidden Dozen, will now fall preferentially.

Expert rating: Even if the basic assumption is correct that the ball in online roulette has a memory because of the random generator, this refers more to hundreds or thousands of game runs and not to the 30 to 40 games that are played in the course of a single game the hidden dozen strategy can be played. So you should keep your hands off this game system, just like most other online roulette strategies that are offered for sale on the Internet.
