Best Live Roulette Strategy

When it comes to playing roulette online, there are three main different types of the game available, so it’s good to understand the differences between each game on offer. It’s vital that you have enough time at the table and are not easily distracted if you want to win.

Buy your chips

The first task is to buy your chips, once you have your chips the next thing is to break them down into stacks. Its important to cover as many numbers as possible if you want to win, so spread your chips out across the table. If you want to increase your chances of winning by covering more numbers, it will cost you more, so bare that in mind.

Best Roulette Strategies

The most common roulette strategy out there is the ‘Martingale Strategy’. This relies on doubling bets after a loss in a 50/50 chance game. The first win will recover the previous losses plus a small profit for the player. When it comes to basic roulette gameplay, you bet on a colour and it either wins or it doesn’t, but f you bet on a single colour and keep doubling your bet until you win – providing you continue doubling losing bets, as soon as you come up with a win you will recover your losses. Like all strategies, the ‘Martingale’ has disadvantages, the first being the gamblers fallacy – just because red has won the last 20 times, maybe even 100 times, doesn’t mean that black is going to come out next time. Every spin has a 50/50 chance. Another disadvantage is that when you’ve reached your maximum bet (or run out of money) after consecutive losses, you need to bet large to recoup your losses.


Reverse Martingale strategy’ is a system where you increase your bets when you win and decrease them when you lose. This way, if you go on to hot streaks, you will increase your winnings and if you lose you will be limiting your losses.

D’Alembert Strategy’ is a safer bet than the two previously mentioned as it involves using arithmetic factors rather than geometric ones. Instead of doubling your bet when you lose, you increase your bet by 1.

Fibonacci Strategy’ is named after the Italian mathematician; Leonardo Pisano Bigollo, who discovered a sequence of numbers, the sequence is as follows with numbers generated by adding the last two digits together; 1-1-2-3-5-8-13-21-34-55-89-144-233-377-610. Betting by using this strategy involves betting by adding the last two bets together, this way you can generate a profit by losing more than you win. Big disadvantage is the further you go down this sequence, the more you lose so bet sensibly and with your head – not your heart!

James Bond Strategy’ is where you need at least £200 n this column bet system. The author of the James Bond series; Ian Fleming claimed it is a fool proof system that could get you the ‘Price of a good dinner’ if you play using this strategy. You simply place £140 on high numbers (19-36), place £50 on six numbers 13-18 and £10 on 0 for insurance. If the ball lands in any number between 1 and 12, you have lost your money and should go back to the ‘Martingale Strategy’ but if you win you will have a tidy little profit;

  • If 19-36 wins you have won £80
  • If 1318 wins you have won £100
  • If 0 wins you have won £160

Nice little wins I’m sure you’d agree.


Roulette Tips

  • It’s a good idea to look for a roulette table with a small minimum bet and high maximum bet. Start small if you want the opportunity to double your losing bets.
  • Bet small to start with, if you win – increase your bets.
  • If you win, it’s a good idea to pocket your winnings and continue to bet the same small amount – to stay at the table longer you should budget your bets until you have won enough to bet high.
  • If you lose, double the amount you wagered last time around and place it on the same colour again.
  • Know when enough is enough. Set yourself a limit and don’t go over it! It’s stupid to go chasing money because you are not guaranteed a win. If you think by sitting at the table you are going to win, you should stop. Ask yourself what you can afford to lose and set that as your limit. If you’re playing too much there are plenty of organisations out there that can help you.
