If you’ve already read the article entitled How to Save Money at Roulette, you should understand that there is no proven method to “beat” roulette. Albert Einstein himself said, “No one can possibly win at roulette unless he steals money from the table.” Even though the common bets of red and black have higher probability (or chance) of coming in on each spin, the house maintains its edge of a little over 5% on every bet on the table. This is because every spin of the wheel has absolutely no bearing on the spins that come after it, even though it might seem that way sometimes. Of course, this hasn’t prevented countless people from claiming that they have invented winning systems of their own, some of which are disingenuously sold to unsuspecting novices. Below, I have outlined the most common betting system practiced by roulette players on the ufabet and some of its variations. Although none of these methods can make you a winner, they may enhance your enjoyment of the game or allow you to dissuade a delusional gambler of his madness (as if you would ever want to).
The most frequently used roulette method is known as the Martingale betting strategy. In this system, the bettor starts by placing a minimum bet on one of the even-money bets (red/black, odd/even, or 1-18/19-36). If the bet is won, the profit is placed into a pile separate from the bettor’s bankroll. If the bet is lost, a new bet of double the amount of the original bet is placed on the same area of the board. By repeatedly doubling the value of the bet, a win will cover all previous losses while providing a profit equal to the amount of the minimum bet. Although this method may sound intriguing – and certainly has given rise to numerous copycat methods – people do not realize how quickly their bankrolls can get depleted. For instance, on a $5 table, you would be betting $40 on your fourth bet, at which point you will already be in the hole an additional $35 from the first three bets ($5, $10, and $20). In order for the Martingale strategy to work in theory, you would need an unlimited bankroll, and if you had such resources, you most likely wouldn’t spend your time playing roulette (or betting the minimum on red, in any case).
Other systems are basically offshoots of the Martingale method or techniques where you “cover” your bets, such as the one outlined in How to Save Money at Roulette. For example, you could bet two different even money bets – such as the red bet and the even bet – and then apply the Martingale system to these bets individually. However, this once again requires an infinite supply of wealth for it to work, although it may allow you to play at the table longer since you have an additional 9 numbers that you can win on. Another variation of the covering strategy would be to bet the first and third columns as well as the black, covering most of the numbers on the board, although even on spins where you don’t lose outright, your wins don’t end up being enough to cover your losses. With these facts in mind, you should realize that there are numerous strategies to employ at the roulette table, but at best they will only extend your time at the table. Your best chance of winning remains getting lucky and walking away before you give the money back.
