Many people talk about different roulette strategies and there are players that follows these systems as well. In fact there are thousands of TV roulette strategies that you will come across as you go online. There are three roulette betting strategies that are more famous than the others.
Probably the oldest among these strategies is the Martingale System. You place an even-money bet and if you win you place the same bet for the next spin and if you lose you bet double the initial bet for the next spin. When you finally win after losing a series of hands you emerge the winner.
For example, you start off by betting ?1. If you win you bet ?1 again but if you lose you bet ?2. You lose the hand and you bet ?4. You lose again and you bet ?8. Now you win and hence you ultimately win ?1.
But this is a very risky system and you could go bankrupt on a really bad day. And you may also reach the table limit as you keep on increasing your bet amount. Hence, it is best to use it in short term.
The next strategy is the DAlembert System. This also involves increasing and decreasing your bet amount but it is less risky than the Martingale System. This strategy works when you bet on a color.
So, you start off by betting ?1 on black. If you win you bet ?1 again and if you lose you bet ?2 on black again. If you lose you bet ?3 on black. If you lose again you bet ?4 on black. If you win now you bet ?3 on black. This can continue for about 10 rounds and you should then start again.
The Labouchre System is the third betting strategy and it is often called the Split Martingale System. It can be used on close and even bets but is most popular on even-money bets. Here the player writes down numbers that add up to the amount he has planned to win. So, for a sequence of 1 to 5, your first bet is ?6 (1+5). If you win you cross these numbers and bet ?6 (2+4) and if you lose you add 6 to the sequence and your new bet is ?8 (2+6). This goes on till all the numbers are gone and then you start again. Bankruptcy and table limit are drawbacks of this strategy.
