Roulette is a mythical game. Everyone who has ever tried the game dreams of breaking the bank. A sea of books have been written on the subject, films have been made and lots of “online scams” are about roulette.
We have gathered everything we could find about Roulette and also reviewed all the casinos we have on the site to find out what kind of selection they can perform.
The number of roulette systems is staggering. In an attempt to form an overview, we have chosen to focus on the 10 most popular roulette systems. These can be divided into 3 categories:
Progressive betting system
Most systems in this category have been around for over 100 years. Overall for these is the concept that the size of the effort is based on the result of the previous efforts; gains, losses and the size of the bet. See the selection of systems below.
Some of these systems involve playing on several contiguous sections in order to optimize one’s odds and at the same time increase the chances of winning regardless of where the ball lands. Other systems in this category are based on betting on several numbers at once, again to ensure a win, or at least optimize the chances of winning as much as possible. See the selection of systems below.
There are 2 popular systems in the prediction category. One is based on exploiting any errors in the mechanics or nature of the roulette table – Bias wheel system. The second on deficiencies or irregularities at the dealer – dealer signature system.
Bias wheel systems based on a theory that some roulette tables have a mechanical error that causes a non-random outcome of which numbers the ball lands on, and thus an opportunity to choose numbers on which the ball has a statistical tendency to land more often.
Dealer signature system – starts from the dealer and the way the individual dealer consciously or unconsciously throws the ball so that the ball lands in a certain section more often than others, statistically speaking. The latter is known as the “dealer’s signature” and has been developed to try to exploit these irregularities. See the selection of systems below.
Let’s take a closer look at some popular roulette game systems:
- Roulette System No. 1 – Martingale Roulette
- Roulette System No. 2 – Grand Martingale Roulette
- Roulette system no. 3 – Laboucher Roulette also known as the cancellation system
- Roulette system no. 4 – d’Alembert Roulette
- Roulette system no. 5 – Oscars Grind Roulette
- Roulette system no. 6 – The Paroli Roulette
- Roulette system no. 7 – Shotwell Systemet Roulette
- Roulette system no. 8 – The Red System roulette
- Roulette system no. 9 – Betting on a based Wheel Roulette
- Roulette System No. 10 – Dealers Signature Roulette
There is no strategy that can beat the casino advantage in roulette on a flawless and calibrated roulette wheel. If you find a system that simply cannot lose in the long term, you might want to take up Michael Shackelford’s offer to appear on the front page of www.wizardofodds.com to define the laws of mathematics. For a small fee, he will test your system on 100 million spins. If your system proves to be profitable, he will refund your fee and give you column space on the front page of the Wizard Of Odds website.
The only way to beat the casino’s edge is to either find a roulette wheel that has a physical defect or find a dealer with a significant and consistent imprint in the way the ball is thrown and the wheel is spun. Although some experienced roulette rats have managed to beat the casion’s advantage to some extent with these methods, it is much more difficult today to find these irregularities. You can always try – it will never go worse than losing between 2.7% and 5.26%.
Just in case, it should be mentioned that there is another system that calculates where the ball will land. The calculations are made based on the speed of the ball and the rotation of the wheel and use different equations to calculate the outcome (laws of physics) It requires a fast computer to do the calculations and it is not allowed in casinos, so unfortunately it is not possible (yet)
