Die besten Roulette-Strategien

Wie man das Spiel genießt und gute Chancen auf einen großen Gewinn hat

If you’ve already tried to find the best roulette strategy on the Internet, you’ve probably encountered sites that tell you about magic strategies that guarantee winnings at online casinos. But these strategies don’t really work, and if you use them in the long run, you’re likely to lose the whole bankroll.

I call these strategies fraudulent, and I’ve devoted an entire article to them, which I called them fraudulent roulette strategies. Read it to find out which strategies I have in mind and why they don’t work. All of the statements in the article are supported by the results of modeling the game.

The same article covers other strategies. I am not claiming that you will use them to turn roulette into a money-making machine. Unfortunately, this is not possible, because at the casino roulette is always a statistical advantage over the players. Statistically, you lose money with every bet you make, so with the exception of some of the cases described in the articleHow to beat roulette, you cannot systematically win at roulette.

However, this does not mean that you cannot play roulette effectively, having a real chance to win, while enjoying the game. Read this article and find out which strategies I think are the best.

Why is volatility important when playing roulette?


Before we move on to strategies, I would like to talk about one important aspect. If you have already read other articles on this site, you know that I always draw readers’ attention to the importance of volatility (also called variance). Roulette is a pretty simple game that clearly shows why volatility is important.

First I will tell you what volatility (dispersion) is. This term is used to describe the frequency of possible winnings in gambling and the size of individual winnings.

Details on volatility can be found in my article RTP Indicator and Dispersion, but in general the following knowledge will suffice:
  • High volatility means that you will not win very often, but the size of the winnings will be larger.
  • With low volatility, everything happens exactly the opposite. You win more often, but the size of the winnings is usually small.
  • The average volatility, respectively, is something between high and low volatility.

The most volatile bet in roulette is the one number bet (Straight Up). Its payout ratio is 1 to 36, and statistically you’ll win only once for 37 spins (roulette with one zero). In fact, it doesn’t have as much volatility as slots, for example. But if you consider only a roulette game, then such indicators can be considered as characterising “high volatility” or at least the highest possible volatility for a single spin.

If we talk about low volatility, the least volatile “standard” bets are those on equal chances. If you win, your initial bet is doubled and your chances of winning are 18 to 37. These bets are on red/black, odd/even or big/small numbers. Of course, you can reduce the volatility by simply filling in many sectors with chips, but as an example of low volatility we will use equal odds bets.

You may already know that all roulette bets have the same payout percentage to the player (RTP). The percentage of payouts at American roulette is 94.74%, while at European roulette it’s 97.3%. This means that you statistically get the same percentage of money back, regardless of the type of bet placed.

In fact, however, all bets are different. For example, in American roulette there is a top-line bet with RTP only 92.1%, but it’s not about it. You would not want to place chips on this bet anyway. If you are interested in learning more about the different types of bets, read my article on rules, bets, odds of winning and payouts at roulette.

Conclusions and recommendations

Like I said, there’s no strategy that works for everyone. Each player has his own roulette strategy with his own strengths and weaknesses. I could just advise you to read the individual articles and learn more about strategies, but I decided to summarize all the information and provide my recommendations for those who do not want to go deep into nuances.

I have come to the following conclusions:

  • A fixed bet strategy is suitable for all situations. It is very flexible and very simple, but will not bring you really big winnings. The opportunity to make a profit also threatens high chances for a quick loss of the bankroll.
  • The fixed ratio strategy is more balanced with a self-adjusting betting mechanism, but it is also more complex as you will have to calculate the betting amount for each round. Over time, however, you will get used to it and it will not be difficult to make these calculations.
  • A “va-bank” strategy has the potential to generate very large winnings, but it is very risky and too volatile. Most likely, you will play only one or two spins, which is too little, and such a game is unlikely to be fun.
  • The “reverse martingale” strategy is the best strategy in my personal opinion. It has predictable game time, a decent chance of a really big win and a great expected return. However, it is not suitable for a live game as the base bet is too small (unless you have a huge budget of course), which is a problem due to limited betting in traditional casinos.
  • A progressive betting strategy is also a great option, especially for those who don’t want to bet all the winnings from the last round every time, but want to keep their chances of winning big. You need to find the right options to do this, so make sure you read the whole article to learn more about them.

Whichever strategy you choose, remember that Roulette is a game with a negative average value for players. This means that you will always lose money over a long game. My strategies will not be able to remove the casino’s advantage from the game, but they will help minimize its impact on your bankroll.

If you find any strategies particularly interesting, be sure to read the relevant detailed article to learn all about them before trying them out in action. And if you want to try them out in real casinos, good luck at the table!

How to beat roulette at a casino

Can I beat the casino by playing roulette by the rules of these strategies and systems? This is how beginners usually formulate the question, without specifying other important and significant conditions of the game, on which depends the option of the correct answer.

There is no purely mathematical roulette strategy, which would allow the player to completely exclude losses. In addition, no betting strategy can influence the mathematical profitability of the game.

In extremely rare cases, and purely for technical reasons, the roulette wheels in individual establishments – can deviate from the even distribution of dropped numbers.

This phenomenon is called the roulette wheel addiction, and there is a system of Counter-Biarritz, the most suitable for playing against the casino, which identified the roulette with a bias wheel. But even this strategy, like everyone else, does not exclude the luck factor in the game.

Each individual ball run – the player constantly risks both winning and losing – this game is not for nothing called roulette.

All mathematical systems and strategies for playing roulette, were developed by the players themselves.

The main idea and advantage of using a certain strategy in the game – is that the player gets the opportunity of his choice to control the expenditure of the game and more consciously plan his game bank.

We can consider the differences between the different systems, using three examples of game development.

Let’s say the player has been betting on red for 10 spins in a row, starting with one base bet, and changing its size according to the rules of the chosen strategy.

In the first variant, let’s analyze the least successful development for the player – this can be considered as a loss of ten consecutive black numbers, or the situation when the player suffers from 10 losses in a row.

The following table shows the current total balance of the player (in base stakes) in each of the ten spins, for the five most popular strategies:

Strategy/spin 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Martingale -1 -3 -7 -15 -15 -31 -63 -127 -255 -511 -1023
Anti-Martingale -1 -2 -3 -4 -5 -6 -7 -8 -9 -10
dalamber -1 -3 -6 -10 -15 -21 -28 -36 -45 -55
Anti-Dalamber -1 -2 -3 -4 -5 -6 -7 -8 -9 -10
Fibonacci -1 -2 -4 -7 -12 -20 -33 -54 -88 -143

As we can see, with a long series of losses, the greatest consumption of the game is obtained by the progressive systems Martingale and Fibonacci. In case of anti-progressive strategies, the bet does not increase after a loss, which, on the contrary, results in the lowest consumption of the player’s bank.

Now let’s consider the second option, when all 10 spins in a row fell only red, that is the most successful series of ten wins for the player.

Strategy/spin 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Martingale +1 +2 +3 +4 +5 +6 +7 +8 +9 +10
Anti-Martingale +1 +3 +7 +15 +31 +63 +127 +255 +511 +1023
dAlambert +1 +2 +3 +4 +5 +6 +7 +8 +9 +10
Anti-Dalamber +1 +3 +6 +10 +15 +21 +28 +36 +45 +55
Fibonacci +1 +2 +3 +4 +5 +6 +7 +8 +9 +10

It is not difficult to make sure that the maximum plus growth of the player’s balance, in the case of ten successful spins in a row, is achieved when playing by the rules of reverse, or anti-progressive strategies.

It should be clarified here that the table above shows the calculations for each of the counter-progressive strategies (Anti-Martingale and Anti-Dalamber) when a player does not take the winnings but continues to participate in the game with all 10 spins, increasing the bet progressively.

However, such long streaks of luck or loss are relatively rare in the real game. In conclusion, let’s take a third typical version of the game, when the player still bets on red every time, with red and black numbers fall out strictly in turn.

Strategy/Spin 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Martingale +1 0 +2 +1 +3 +2 +4 +3 +5 +6
Anti-Martingale +1 -1 0 -2 -1 -3 -2 -4 -3 -5
dAlamber +1 0 +2 +1 +3 +2 +4 +3 +5 +6
Anti-Dalamber +1 -1 0 -2 -1 -3 -2 -4 -3 -5
Fibonacci +1 0 +1 0 +1 0 +1 0 +1 0 +1 0 0

Obviously, the uniform distribution of the ball drop results, when the winnings alternate with the losses, leads to a slightly negative growth of the player’s balance, in the case of the game on anti-progressive (reverse) systems. Indicators of the game on the progressive systems Martingale and Dalamber – in this case, the same. This is due to the fact that the bet after the first loss in both of these systems – increases by the same amount.

Thus, each time a player makes a bet, his risks fluctuate relative not only to the game itself, but also the selected system and the size of the game bank. To be the most effective roulette player, you should know and be able to use all these important components.

Dustin’s Strategy

Before the start of the game it is necessary to divide the whole surface of the roulette wheel into 5 digital zones, as a result each zone will contain 7 digits:

Numbers 12 and 28 are not part of any digital zone.

Before entering the game, you must be an observer until at least one of the 4 digital zones falls out. Next, the user enters the game and bets on the digital zone, which has not previously dropped out on a roulette.

The probability of winning on 7 numbers – at least 1 time for 12 spins.

Example of strategy application

During the observation of the gameplay on the roulette dropped the numbers 0,13,18,3,22,23,4,6. The combinations belong to zones 1, 2, 3 and 5. Before the next back, the player must bet on the 4 digital zones, which never fell out.

When dropping out at roulette numbers 2,28,1,2,3,4 winning for the player will be already 6 spins, with the sum of the winnings will be 35 chips with a minimum bet.
