Live Roulette Strategy

There are a number of ways you can meet your target win levels at live roulette, and you’ll always find it’s easier to achieve what you’re trying to do when you use a defined strategy. The methods available to you vary enormously from the blindingly simple to the highly complex. 

Fundamentally, though, there are two types of roulette strategy: Progressive and regressive.

Progressive Roulette Strategies

Progressive strategies require you to increase your bet after a losing wager on the grounds that your bad luck can’t last forever, and although this can require a large bankroll it can be rapidly effective under the right conditions. 

It’s the simplest example of a progressive strategy, though less extreme versions are available including the D’Alembert method, which requires you to increase you bet by just one unit after every losing wager. 

Regressive Roulette Strategies

Regressive strategies, as you might have guessed, involve doing the opposite: If you suffer a loss then you make a lesser bet the next time around, hoping to avoid excessive losses after a losing streak. Strategies you can use include the polar opposite of those already mentioned – the Reverse D’Alembert and Anti-Martingale. 

These, though, are very basic ideas – it gets much more refined:

The LaBouchere system is also used mainly for even bets and uses a line of custom-designed numbers, increasing in value that add up to the total amount you aim to win in any one session. 
To get started, you’ll need to devise a line of numbers, increasing in value that add up to the amount you aspire to win in any one session.

These numbers determine how much you need to bet (they have nothing to do with the numbers on the Roulette wheel). The amount you bet is the sum of the very first and last numbers. You cross these both off if you win, and insert their combined total at the end of the sequence if you lose.

The Fibonacci System falls somewhere between other well-known systems. It uses the famous mathematical progression we all vaguely remember from school but which never seemed to serve any purpose – but you’ll be pleased to hear there is a use for it. The sequence adds two consecutive numbers to make the next number in the sequence as follows:

1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144 etc

When you suffer a losing bet, you simply bet multiples based on the figures shown in turn. Once you’re winning there’s no need to worry about the sequence.

Trying out different strategies

Most roulette strategies are all about recouping losses rather than advising you on what to do if you’re winning. If you’re ahead, then all’s well and good – nobody ever felt constrained by winning, but losses eat away at your bankroll, which is a limiting factor and consequently more serious. 

You are, though, welcome to apply strategies to your wins as well. You may, for example decide that you’ve enjoyed a winning streak for long enough and therefore reduce your next wager by one unit or even by half – it’s entirely up to you. 

Other roulette strategies are concerned with how to lay your chips on to the betting grid to get maximum value for money. The Double Street Quad System and James Bond System are two such strategies, though how you deal with and losses or wins made from them can be subject to even more strategic input if you wish.
