Roulette Strategy - Luck or Skill?

by ReadyBetGo Editor

The roulette table has long been a favourite of casino goers the world over and one of the favourite entries on mobile casinos too - largely in part due to how random the table you can be, you mayReadyBetGo EditorThere are occasions when we here at ReadyBetGo want to bring you interesting facts about the gambling industry  When something catches our eye, we will publish it for your enjoyment. Roulette table

  win, you may lose, but it never feels like something falling outside of just good or back luck which is why it’s so addictive and exciting to many players. But for the discerning players there may be some roulette strategy to integrate to your game to improve your results.

    Martingale System - This system has players double down on their bet after each loss - it’s a simple and straightforward betting method that works for newer players but not something you’d find an experienced player do, this is a high risk, high reward strategy that may only work in the short term.

    Paroli System - Often known as the reverse Martingale, doubling down on a bet every time you win. This is considered to be a bit safer than the previous strategy as it may feel like you’re only betting with the casino's money, but this often isn’t the case.

Both strategies are considered steep progression strategies - they work well in a 50/50 situation as you’re able to make up your losses relatively quickly, but they also run the risk of running the table limit or your total pot before you do compensate those losses.

There are a number of other progression strategies, essentially increasing your bet through wins or losses depending on the strategy, but there are also non progressive strategies;

    James Bond Strategy - Exactly what it sounds like, a strategy popularised by Ian Fleming's novel character James Bond. This method has the player cover half the table in bets to turn the odds in the favour of the player, not at all recommended however as you’ll often lose much more than you win.

    Betting on neighbouring numbers - This is a strategy often implemented in French Roulette - this strategy has players splitting their bet on neighbouring numbers as the name would suggest - if the ball misses one pocket you’ve chosen, then you may be fortunate enough to have it land in one of the others in the pocket. 

There are a number of other strategies that fall in to both the progression and non progressive list of strategies and the best way to find one that you feel works for you is try the strategy out - although it may be wise to avoid some of the higher risk, higher reward strategies, you can of course tweak the method to match your own pot or the table limit for wherever you may be playing. There is no sure fire strategy that will work 100% of the time, after all as mentioned roulette is still a luck based game, and part of the reason fans are so attracted to it.
