There are many roulette strategies out there that people employ in an attempt
to unlock the key to roulette riches. Some people swear by these strategies.
Some people avoid them at all costs after just one try.
The fact remains that these strategies exist. There are pros and cons against
them all. The only way to see if a strategy works for you is by trying it out.
You may be shaking your head and thinking that this is just a waste of money.
Just keep in mind that free online blackjack works on the same rules as online
blackjack for real money so you can apply the same strategies - for free.
One of the most interesting strategies is the Martingale roulette strategy.
Whether the system works or not is entirely up to how you apply it. This will
just give you an overview of what the strategy is about and how it works. It is
then up to you to see if you want to give it a try.
The Martingale System in its Simplest Form
The rule itself is quite simple. Each time you lose a bet, you should double
the next one. For example, if your first bet is €10 and you lose then your next
bet should be €20. If you lose again then you should bet €40. If you lose again
then you should bet €80. Then €160.
However, if you win the next bet you make must be equal to your first bet -
At first glance, you may think that this system is designed to throw your
money away. This is because there is no way to ascertain when the "losing
streak" will end. If you do not have a big bankroll then you could find yourself
completely broke without the chance at turning your fortune around.
The Martingale systemhas been extensively tested over the years by a
number of professional gamblers. The results show that the system does in fact
work. However, the system only really works for people who have deep pockets -
or high stacks in their bankrolls. Secondly, the system also only works properly
when there is no limits to the betting at the roulette table.
Where the System Works Best
The Martingale system works best with even-paying bets. Using the system, you
bet €1 on Red/Black. You lose. You then bet €2 on Red/Black. You lose again. You
then bet €4 on Red/Black. You win. You have lost €3 and won €4, with a total
profit of €1 - even though you have lost two out of three spins on something
that should be decimally below 50/50 (taking the zero into account).
If you keep it as simple as this then you could be successful with the
Martingale system. As your roulette knowledge improves, you can try this
strategy out on more complex bets.
