Do strategies really work in a game of Roulette?


Roulette first made an appearance on casino establishment floors in the 18th century, and since then, the game has taken the world by storm, with millions of players over the years seeking a wheel to spin – hoping they correctly predict the outcome.

Even more so, thanks to the advancements in technology and the digital world we live in, players can now access a Roulette wheel and play online table games with the tap of an app or a click of a mouse.

With its popularity growing throughout its time on both the physical and virtual casino floors, Roulette has seen many players claim there’s a strategy or two to winning big when spinning the wheel – so, do strategies really work?

Read on to find out more.

Martingale System

Proving to be more popular with online players, the Martingale System is based on the theory of doubling your wagering amount each time you encounter a loss, resulting in a bigger win whenever you do encounter one.

Players say, for this to work at its most effective, you’ll need to wager on even money bets only. These are bets such as red / black, odd / even. 

The idea of this system is to essentially bet on even money bet types, doubling each time you lose, however, when you do correctly predict the outcome of a spin of the wheel you drop back to your original starting wager amount. 

So, for example, if you started your wagering amount at 1.00 credits, and you encountered a loss, you’re next wagering amount would be 2.00 credits. If you lost again, it would rise to 4.00 credits. If on this turn you won, your wagering amount would drop back down to 1.00 credits.

d’Alembert System

Just like the Martingale System, the d’Alembert System is also a strategy that’s based on placing wagers on even money bets. However, your wagering amount doesn’t double with each loss, instead the starting wager amount it added. Plus, if you win, your wagering amount decreases by the original wagering amount, instead of resetting back to the starting amount.

An example of this in action:

You start with a wager of 1.00 credits.

You lose the game.

Your next wager amount is 2.00 credits.

You lose this game too.

Your next wager amount is 3.00 credits.

You win the game.

Your next wager amount is 2.00 credits.

You lose the game.

Your next wager amount is 3.00 credits.

And so on.

Many players see this as a good way to try out a Roulette strategy, as you can stop at any time, and in the short term, you can keep an eye on your win and loss rate.

These are just two of the many strategies floating around the Roulette chatter-sphere, claiming to be the key to winning big. However, we believe that Roulette is a game of chance and prediction – no strategy will help you guess the outcome of each spin of the wheel.
