For newcomers it is all about enjoying the game in the beginning, however experts of roulette sometimes employ many strategies to maximize their winnings. There are many roulette betting systems that can be used. However, you need to get into the game a bit before you can start using them.
For newcomers to the game of roulette it is best to use the Cuban betting system. In this system equal bets are placed on the third column and on any one of the black numbers in columns one and two. The third column has four blacks and eight reds. By placing bets like this you can reduce the chance of your loss.
A slightly riskier betting system is the Labouchere betting system. Here you prepare a succession of numbers and bet by adding the first and the last numbers in the sequence. For a sequence of 1-2-3-4-5-6 the first bet is $7. For a loss 7 has to be added to the sequence by taking off the first number and the next bet should be $9 (2+7). For a win the numbers (1 and 6) are crossed off and the next bet is $7 (2+5).
The Fibonacci betting system involves betting in the Fibonacci Sequence (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13…). For a loss the next number in the sequence is bet and for a win the last two numbers are removed and the remaining number is bet.
The D’Alembert betting system is slightly more risky. Here for every loss the bet amount is increased by a unit and for every win the bet amount is reduced by the same unit. For $1 bet and a loss the next bet could be $2. For another loss the next bet should be $3 and then $4 and so on. For a win on a bet of $5 the next bet is $4.
The Contra-D’Alembert System is the opposite of the D’Alembert System and is very risky.
The Martingale System is the riskiest where one doubles the initial bet amount for a loss and goes back to the first betting amount for a win. So, loss on $1 means $2 bet. Another loss means $4 bet. A win now means $1 bet again.
But remember that all these systems have their faults and you may end up losing still. It is important to manage your money well so that you don’t end up losing all of it in a hurry. And remember that you need some experience of roulette before you start using these systems.
