The Martingale Strategy
The Martingale strategy is one of the most famous strategies out there and it also has variations. It involves a process of doubling the bets after meeting with a loss in a 50/50 chance game and maintaining or reducing the bet after a win, by this way, the player could compensate all the previous loses along with
small wins. Players can save the money that is won and can start again with the initial amount.
This strategy would more suit the games which have a low minimum bet and a high maximum bet. If a player follows this strategy, he might incur several winnings than the number of losses. Players must make their bets on red/black, even/odd or small/larger digits, only these provide a near 50/50 chance for winning.
Labouchere Roulette Strategy
It is probably one of the most complex strategies and the only bets which involve equal chances such as black/red, small/larger digits and even/odd bets can only be used in this strategy. The player must construct the betting line which involves the size of the bet and the length of the bet and this usually decides how long the player bets.
For example, consider 2-2-2-2-2 as a betting line and the numbers from the left end and the right end are added and the resulting number will be considered as the bet amount, in this case, it’s 4. If a win occurs, numbers used for the sum is cancelled, then the betting line becomes 2-2-2.
In case of a loss the numbers are not cancelled, instead, the total is added to the right end of the betting line, the line then becomes 2-2-2-2-2-4.
The D’Alembert Strategy
The D’Alembert strategy is safer than Martingale and Reverse Martingale strategy. This strategy involves a process of increasing and decreasing the bets by arithmetic factors instead of geometric factors. The player must increase the bet by 1 after a loss instead of doubling it such as in Martingale strategy and decreasing the bet by 1 after a win. This strategy almost creates equal wins and losses. This method can be applied using black/red, small/larger digits and even/odd bets. It cannot be applied using dozens, columns or inside bets.
Cover the Table Strategy
Covering the table is one of the popular strategies which allows the players to place more calculated bets. Some of the table covering strategies are given below:
Bet on 35 numbers
This is a highly risky method of betting as the player needs to cover a total of 35 numbers. Even if the player spends £1 for each number, still, he would lose £35 everytime he loses.
Bet on 11 streets
This involves placing the bets on 11 streets and it covers 33 numbers.
The third dozen and 1-18
If the player places £3 bet on 1-18 bet method and £2 on the third dozen. The player will win £1 if any one of them has the winning number and 30 numbers are covered by this method.
Flat betting Strategy
It the simplest of all the betting types and it involves the method of placing the same bet again and again. It is not based on any mathematical formulas or odds.
The Reverse Martingale Strategy
As the name suggests, this strategy involves the reverse procedure of martingale strategy i.e. increasing the bets when a win occurs and decreasing the wins when the bet is lost. This strategy can be only applied using black/red, small/larger digits and even/odd bets.
Reverse D’Alembert Strategy
Reverse D’Alembert strategy is also called as Contra D’Alembert betting strategy and it involves the procedure of decreasing the bets after a loss and increasing the bets after a win, which is opposite to the D’Alembert Strategy.
|Labouchere Line||Amount Bet||Win/Lose||Running Total of Winnings
|2 4 6 6 4 3||£5||Lose||-£5
|2 4 6 6 4 3 5||£7||Lose||-£12
|2 4 6 6 4 3 5 7||£9||Win||-£3
| 4 6 6 4 3 5||£9||Lose||-£12
| 4 6 6 4 3 5 9||£13||Lose||-£25
| 4 6 6 4 3 5 9 13||£17||Win||-£8
|6 6 4 3 5 9||£15||Win|| £7
|6 4 3 5 ||£11||Lose||-£4
|6 4 3 5 11||£17||Lose||-£21
|6 4 3 5 11 17||£23||Win|| £2
|4 3 5 11||£15||Lose||-£13
|4 3 5 11 15||£19||Win|| £6
|3 5 11||£14||Win|| £20
Bet on 17 splits
Instead of spending £36 to cover the table, this method involves placing 17 splits. So, the player will be spending £17 to cover 35 numbers.
Bet on 5 Double Streets
A double street which is also called as a line, covers two streets together and the players will be covering 30 numbers in this method.
4 splits and 2 columns
If the player bets £5 on any of the two columns and £1 bet on four other splits which isn’t covered by the column bet. He will get a £1 profit every time if any of the column numbers win and, he will win £4 profit if any of the split numbers wins.
If you are a new player, it is highly advised to practice the strategies in the demo version of the game before playing for real money.
Oscar’s Grind Strategy
This method shares some similarities with the D’Alembert method and only black/red, small/larger digits and even/odd bets can be applied in this method. Consider the bet sequence 1-2-3-4. When a win occurs, the player must increase the bet by 1 and this continues till 4 is achieved. When the player incurs a loss, the previous bet is maintained. The concept is to gain one-unit profit and returning to the initial bet again.
The James Bond Strategy
This is probably one of the most interesting strategies. It is created by the Ian Fleming who is the brilliant mind behind the James Bond series. This strategy is used by the secret agent in the novels.
Let’s take $200 for example, the player should bet $140 on high numbers which are 19 to 36 and then he must place a $50 bet on six numbers from 13 to 18. Also, $10 should be placed on 0 for insurance. If the ball lands on the numbers from 1 to 12 then he loses everything. If the ball lands on any number from 19-36, the player will get a profit of $80 and if the ball lands between 13-18, he gets a $100 profit and if the ball lands on “0” number the player will get a $160 pocket.
