The world of roulette betting systems

Roulette is a well-known casino game which has adherents in all the corners of the world. The amount of roulette betting systems grows simultaneously with the number of fans of this exciting game. At the same time the roulette casino game is covered with some roulette myths.

The variety of systems

To tell the truth, every roulette gambler can create and use his or her system of placing bets. They can keep them in a secret. But nevertheless, there is a variety of betting systems which are known by every player.

Famous betting systems

Among the most famous betting systems it is indispensably to name the following: Martingale, Anti-martingale, Labouchere, Reverse Labouchere, d'Alembert, Fibonacci.


The Martingale system of betting is an interesting system when the gamblers need to double their bets in case of a loss. They double the bets till the win. Actually, not every player has a bankroll huge enough to double the bet after each unsuccessful bet. That is the negative side of this betting system.


The principle idea of the Anti-Martingale system is to double the bet after the losing bet. Before the beginning of the game it is necessary to determine the amount of spins the gambler wants to play.


To start using Labouchere system the player needs to determine the amount of desirable winning. The next step is to write down the positive numbers which in total will make the determined amount. Then the betting starts. The first bet is the sum of the first and last number in the written row. In case of a win these numbers are crossed out. In the opposite case - the wagered amount is added to the end of the Labouchere line.

Reverse Labouchere

If the players want to use Reverse Labouchere, they need to add the wagered number to the end of the Labouchere line and to cross out the numbers in the opposite case.


The main principle of this video slots system is to add one chip to the bet after the loss and to remove one in case of win.


Fibonacci numbers are the basis of this roulette betting system. The Fibonacci row is the following - 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377 etc. Every next number is a sum of two previous numbers. The idea of this system is to raise the amount of the bet according to the Fibonacci sequence after each loss. In the opposite case, after the win the gambler should cross out of the line two last numbers.

Other systems

Among other roulette betting systems it is possible to mention the Andrucci and Dozen roulette betting systems.


This system involves betting on the lucky numbers. The main idea is to observe and analyze the winning numbers and to bet on these numbers. But this system is not very popular among the gamblers as in most cases they do not believe that they can possibly win again.

Dozen betting system

The Dozen betting system is considered to be the system which can guarantee the win with a comparatively low risk. This system is a system of progression. To begin with, it is necessary to draft a chart for noting the results. It can be as the following one.

Low bets - L - first 12
Middle bets - M - second 12
High bets - H - third 12

For the first ten spins of the roulette wheels the gambler should just watch the game and record the results of each spin in the chart. The player puts the letter L, M, H after the spin. For example, after ten spins the table can look the next way:

When one of the sections did not win during five consecutive times, it is the right time to start betting. Let's suppose that high bet didn't come for 5 spins, so it is necessary to bet 1$ on high section and continue betting (increasing the bet) till the win. This betting system can't provide really great winning, but using this variant of placing bets the roulette gamblers will never lose when their numbers drop in.

The Dozen betting system necessitates patience and time from the gambler. And if one doesn't feel that this betting system is suitable, he can choose another and play with pleasure and profit, and who knows maybe become famous as Joseph Jagger.

Good luck!
