# Roulette Betting Systems

There are many betting systems used for the game of roulette that many people will claim are guaranteed to make you money… they are lying. The fact is that there is simply no system that is guaranteed to win you money in roulette. The reason for this is because the odds are the same with every spin of the wheel. Just because a red number has hit the last three or four spins does not mean there is any better chance that it will hit black on the next spin. Statistically speaking, you won’t often see the same color hit that many times in a row, however, statistics are not always right.

However, these systems can save you some money, they do have a certain logical sense to them that can, at very least decrease your losses over time allowing you to play longer with the amount of money you have to gamble with. You may find people selling information about guaranteed systems that will always win you money on the roulette tables, these are scam artists out to get your money. We will show you the same systems they are trying to sell you, and we won’t charge you a penny.

## The Martingale System

The Martingale betting system is an easy system to learn. The concept is simple; you start with a base bet, for this example we’ll say your base bet is $1. If you win, you bet the same amount again. If you lose, you double your bet. If you win on the second spin, you will have won back your original dollar, plus an extra dollar. If you lose a second time, you double up your bet again. So bet number one is $1, if you lose, bet number two is $2. If you lose again, bet number three is $4, and if you lose yet again you double the bet again to $8, and so on. The main problem with this system is that all roulette tables have a maximum betting limit, so if you reach that limit before you win, the system fails and you have lost a lot of money in the process.

## The d’Alembert System

The law of equilibrium, which was developed by the 18th century mathematician, Jean Le Rond d’Alembert, governs the d’Alembert system. The idea to this system is just as simple as the Martingale, but almost exactly the opposite. For every bet you win, you increase your bet by one, and every time you lose, you decrease your bet by one. This system seems to work better than the Martingale because it is not so easy to hit the table’s betting cap.

## The Fibonacci System

For those of you familiar with the Fibonacci sequence, you will be able to pick this system up easily. I is based on the famous mathematical sequence developed by the mathematician Fibonacci. The idea with this system is to increase your bets according to the Fibonacci sequence every time you lose, then as soon as you win, start from the beginning of the sequence again. For those of you unfamiliar with the Fibonacci sequence, it is simple. The next number in the sequence is the sum of the previous two number. So, starting from 1, the sum of 1 and nothing is 1, therefore the first two numbers in the sequence are 1, 1. The next number is the sum of the previous two, 1 + 1 = 2. So the first three numbers in the sequence are 1, 1, 2. Again, the sum of the previous two numbers 1 + 2 = 3, so 1, 1, 2, 3 and so on – 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, ect. This system has the same problem as the Martingale, but does allow for more bets before reaching the bet cap of the table.
