Basic Roulette Strategies

Far too many people have the belief that in order to do well at roulette, you must have an advanced and complex system in place, which will guarantee a profitable return. Luckily, this is not the case; there are a great deal of simple roulette strategies which are easy to memorise and do not require a mastery of the numerical arts. Some of those strategies can be used on other free casino games.  One such simple, yet extremely effective strategy, is the Martingale Roulette Betting System…

The Martingale system is among the most well-known of all roulette betting systems; it works by a very simple method of negative progression, which takes very little time to become familiar with.

The basic premise behind the Martingale system is a simple, yet ingenious, one: for every bet you lose on the roulette table, you double the value of the loss – using this method, you will have recovered all your losses when the wheel finally spins in your favour. In doing this, you are effectively resetting the roulette wheel and are able to start spinning again with a refreshed bankroll. This method is repeated until you finally turn a profit.

Unfortunately, this method of playing roulette has proved to be so fool-proof, that a vast-majority of online and land-based casinos have had to bring in regulations and measures to ensure that players are not able to use it.

Nowadays, many roulette tables have maximum betting limits imposed on them which will not allow a player to double up their bet on more than five or six consecutive spins of the roulette wheel.

A similar system that has not been banned (although it is slightly more complex to keep track of), is the D’Alembert Roulette Betting System. This system dictates that you notch up your bets by small increments when you lose, and by the same vale when you win – all in all, this method serves to drastically cut down a total loss-rate at the roulette wheel.
