Roulette’s a fascinating game. Coming from the French for “little wheel”, the first form of roulette is thought to have originated in 18th century France. Incredibly, many historians believe Blaise Pascal introduced the first primitive form of roulette wheel in search of a perpetual motion machine. The rest, as they say, is history.
Nowadays, it forms one of the core games at any online or traditional casino, and millions of people play it all around the world.
It’s so simple, and anyone can pick up the rules to play. You guess whether the ball will land on black or red on the spinning roulette wheel and if you’re right, you’ll win some money. If you’re not, that’s it.
There are more rules where you can specify even numbers or odd numbers, but it’s really not complicated. That’s probably what makes it so addictive.
But for such a simple game, are there any best roulette strategy ever invented that you can follow to win?
The Fibonacci Strategy
This roulette strategy is known to be one of the safest. If you prefer conservative tactics over high risk, this could be the best strategy for you to implement. The Fibonacci roulette strategy is based on the Fibonacci sequence. If you’re unsure as to what this is, it’s essentially a sequence of numbers that is the sum of the two numbers before it:
1 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 13 – 21 – 34 – 55 – 89 – 144 – 233 – 377 – 610
If you do decide to go for this system, make sure you only use it on even-number bets. These bets have a 50% chance of winning each time, and you will need to wait for your first win before moving on to the next number in the sequence.
Once you win, increase by one. If you win again, increase the stake by two, and so on. When you lose a hand, you start over at the minimum bet and go from there.
The 007 Strategy
This strategy is best implemented when you don’t plan on playing for too long. Each round, you will need to play by multiples of a certain amount – take £200 as an example. First, place a bet for £140 on a number from 19-36. Then, £50 on a number from 13-18. Finally, put a tenner on the single zero.
This strategy works well because it guarantees a win 66% of the time, though it’s not sustainable for long periods. If you’re going to try and bet like James Bond, it’s best in quick bursts.
The All-in Strategy
If you’re the opposite of a conservative gambler and the Fibonacci strategy doesn’t appeal, you make like something more in the fast lane.
The “all-in” strategy is best employed as a final push for some quick cash on the night, and will get the adrenaline flowing. There’s no real secret to the strategy, other than betting your whole bankroll on one number. If you win, the takings are lucrative and you can keep going until you’re bust.
It’s impressive to watch so expect people to gather round the table in admiration!
