      Hello,

      today I came across a very interesting roulette strategy that I will share with you guys. If you do not want to read, you can just watch this video:


      In the beggining you choose a colour that you are going to bet on: BLACK or RED. You then bet 1€ (or $) on RED (let's say you chose red). If RED falls and you win, you bet 1€ next round again. If BLACK falls, you have to invest 2€ next round. If you lose the next round again, you invest 4€, etc.

      Example:
      Spin 1: We bet €1 on RED, ball stops on BLACK, so we lose €1 (profit - €1).

      Spin 2: We bet €2 on RED, ball stops on BLACK, so we lose €2 (profit - €3).

      Spin 3: We bet €4 on RED, ball stops on BLACK, so we lose €4 (profit - €7).

      Spin 4: We bet €8 on RED, ball stops on BLACK, so we win €8 (profit €1).

      Spin 5: We bet €1 on RED, ball stops on BLACK, so we win €1 (profit €2).

      Spin 6: We bet €1 on RED, ball stops on BLACK, so we win €1 (profit €3).

      What the heck? How can this be a losing strategy? I've been using this on William Hill for the last 15 minutes and won 30$, but afraid to keep on going because I do not have a large bankroll.

      Comment on this, guys D:

      Yeah it's foolproof. I've always wondered how online casinos even make money

      It's obvious winner if you are immortal and have unlimited resources so it's the nuts.

      Well, if you do have like 4000$ bankroll, this system is totally winnable. Looking at maths, the chances of losing 8 times in a row are 0,46% ...?

      So, you're saying that you would risk 4k$ to win 1$?

      Trust ppl who say martingale isnt going to win you money longterm. Btw, record of one color hitting is 32 in a row or something like that, I think. And those situations aren't that uncommon. There are far better progressions out there.

      Ok, I get it, it's a losing strategy, and I will not be using this anymore. Don't want to regret it.

      Let me put it another way. Every single bet in roulette is -EV. No amount of bets that are all -EV can ever collectively be +EV. :f_biggrin:

      And if something is -EV, you don't do it! :f_biggrin:

      I've beat roulette over a period of a month. You need a few requirements:

      The limits can't be capped so that you can continue to double up

      If you do it live, you'll be kicked out as soon as they know what you are doing and see you have a deep stack

      Again, you're still at a disadvantage by something stupid percentage, because of the 0. But aslong as you have the cash to double up to rouhgly 7-10 times you'll most likely win.

      Then again you could say the wheel doesn't have memory on previous rounds and therefore the results each time are not affected by past results.

      Either way, you wont do it now because casinos cap their limits, and live casinos kick you out like they did with me ;D

      My advice though:

      Roulette is mathematically unbeatable over the long term, don't bother. I got lucky. If you had billions, then that's another story, and then even the guy with billions or trillions can go broke too.

      It has happened, but that is uncommon.. how can you make such statement..

      There are thousands of casinos world wide, with roulette tables spinning hundreds to thousand times per day, not including the roulettes you can play at without a roulette spinner guy.

      Those records have been recorded overtime with millions and millions of spins per year, not so common now?

      Simply because after reading the wiki article and reading the replies, I see I would have to have a huge bankroll to keep on winning, I do not want to go on a losing streak and lose everything on roulette. I'll stick to poker, doing good enough there.
