Roulette Strategies

Following on from analyzing and breaking down the Martingale, James Bond and Paroli roulette strategies we hope that it has given you an insight into the wonderful world of roulette and that you have begun to make some profits. As mentioned at the end of part one we are now going to look at some more roulette betting strategies, some that you may not have heard of before and that will give you food for thought. So, lets continue:


This roulette betting system was designed by French mathematician Jean Baptiste le Rond d’Alembert and is one of the lower risk strategies that you will find so this may appeal to beginners or cautious gamblers. Using this system effectively will require a lot of patience as it requires small incremental changes to the stake on each spin. How it works:

This strategy is very simple, you select an even money bet on either red or black, odd or even or high or low numbers and if you win you decrease your stake by £1 and if you lose you increase it by £1.

As previously mentioned, the key to this betting system is patience, the system is not designed for players wanting to see large profits instantly. The upside to this strategy is that it is not going to bankrupt you, but the downside is that you are unlikely to make large profits either.


The Labouchere roulette strategy allows players to record their progress towards a predetermined goal. The idea is for the player to select how much money they would like to win before they begin playing, then divide that number into smaller numbers and then aim to win a portion of the total with each bet. For example, of I was looking to win £10 I might split that into 1-2-1-1-2-2-1. How it works:

To begin with select the amount that you would like to win and then divide it into smaller numbers which are more achievable and write those numbers down. Now add the two numbers from either end of your list together and stake that amount on an even money bet. If the bet wins you cross off the numbers from your list and if the bet losses add the two numbers to the right hand side of your list of numbers as you will now need to win that amount back in order to achieve your end target. Continue taking the two numbers from the left and right of the list until you have no numbers left.

The downside to this system is that it can only really be used at home to play online as casinos are unlikely to be happy with you writing things down whilst you are at the table. Also, a live dealer casino might move to quickly for you to record your numbers and do the math’s.


If you fancy yourself as a mathematician then it is likely that you have heard of the Fibonacci sequence of numbers. The sequence appeared as early as 200BC and is a list of numbers that add up to the proceeding numbers as so:


How it works:

This roulette strategy can only be used on the even money bets like red or black or odd or even. The way that it works is when you lose a bet your next bet will be the sum of the two previous bets. More simply put start of by staking the first number in the sequence above (1) and when you have a losing spin you move one step to the right. If you have a winning spin you move two steps to the left or if you are at the start you continue there.

The main flaw to this betting strategy is that when you win and had previously been losing you only get back the money from the two previous spins.

Oscar’s Grind

This roulette betting strategy was first written about by Allan Wilson in his book entitled The Casino Gamblers Guide. It was named after a chance meeting with a chap called Oscar who showed him his detailed record of consistent profits, albeit using this slow system. This is how it works:

You stake one unit on an even money bet and if you win you continue betting the same stake as before. If you have a losing spin, then you bet the same as the previous spin that has just lost. Then if you win that spin you add one unit to your next spin and continue to do so until you have a losing spin.

As previously mentioned, this system is very slow and will not show large profits.

That concludes our look at all the Progressive roulette betting strategies out there and hopefully these articles have helped you to decide which kind of player that you are. To summarize we have categorized the different systems to try and help you even further.
