To date, Roulette is still one of the most popular games to play when players visit a casino. It is really easy to play as it just revolves around guessing where a little ball will land when dropped onto a spinning wheel. Believe it or not, there is a science behind placing bets in this game and there are many roulette strategies out there that player can use. When playing roulette it is worth remembering that the house edge is against you and it can range anywhere between 2.7% to 5.2% depending on which version of roulette you intend to play.

The only ever way a roulette strategy could be successful and guarantee you a payout is if you were able to take the house edge percentage entirely out of the equation. Sadly that is not possible with casinos so there is no optimal roulette strategy you can use to give a guaranteed win. Having said that, there are quite a few strategies that may yield some success for you. We decided to take a look at some of the best ones you can use while playing this game.

Martingale


This is often viewed as a high-risk strategy as it involves increasing your bets after each loss until you get a win. Players typically bet on Red or Black with this system until they are in profit. One thing you should definitely do before testing out this strategy is to set yourself a stop loss limit so you will walk away with money in your pocket rather than a big hole!

Reverse Martingale


This strategy is also called the Paroli system. As the name implies, it’s a completely opposite version of the Martingale strategy as it revolves around increasing your bets after a win. This is known as a positive progression system. To get the best use out of this system, you need to keep increasing your bets, stay on a winning streak as long as possible, and then walk way with a handsome profit. Always stick to a quitting point when using this system otherwise you will accumulate lots of small losses that will creep up on you quite quickly!

D’Alembert


This is one of the safest systems to implement in roulette and it is extremely popular with amateur and professional players. It is quite similar to the Martingale strategy as it involves increasing your bets after a loss but at a much smaller rate. It is an even chance betting system which means you can use it on Red/Black, Odd/Even, and 1-18/19-36. To use this strategy optimally, you should have a low bankroll and try to avoid going on a losing streak. If this happens, it can be quite difficult to recover your money as you will need to go on an equal winning streak in order to recoup your losses.

Fibonacci


This system is based on the popular Mathematical formula where you start with one number and then add the two previous numbers together to give you the next number e.g. 1-1-2-3-5-8-13-21 and so on. You use this system until you get a win and when you do then you move back two numbers in your betting sequence and then place a bet on that number. You need to be patient when using this strategy and it is worth noting that it is not immune to losing streaks either. When using this system, make sure to set yourself a stop loss limit and stick to it just like the other strategies mentioned here.
