Multi stage betting strategy (Parachute variant)

I’m going to leave here a family of progressions based on parachute. Parachute betting charts are tools, neither good nor bad. What is important is how and when you use the tool. We change from parachute to parachute when balance tell us, or if we want to lose less because we are losing, or win more because we are winning. You should use these progressions according to your bankroll fluctuations. When you are in profit, you can try Parachute 5 or 6 to accelerate your profit. When you are losing you may go to Parachute 1 or 2 to preserve your bankroll.


The Parachute method comes from the pivot system, and Manrique took it from there and used it on his own strategy. The parachute betting method is based on the idea to make a progression without increasing the bets, but increasing the bet payouts instead.

Delayed Parachute strategy: Huge wins!

This is a surprising and relatively safe roulette strategy created by Victor many years ago. It is an nice little modification of the classic Parachutte betting strategy, but produces quite different results than the original. In some respects it is more conservative and in some other aspects it is more aggressive. In any case it is worth a lot of thought and consideration.

The ladder

The original parachute is a progression in risk, simply going to the next location of the following ladder:

  • Even chance
  • Dozen/Column
  • Double-street
  • Quad/Corner
  • Street
  • Split

For the system we will describe here we bet each level for the duration of its cycle, which is equal to its payout.

  • Even chance: 2 spins
  • Dozen/Column: 3 spins
  • Double-street: 6 spins
  • Quad/Corner: 9 spins
  • Street: 12 spins
  • Split: 18 spins 

The simple rules

  • Rise unit +1 on a hit.
  • Use the next higher-paying location on a hit.
  • Go back to the previous lower-paying location ON A MISSED CYCLE.
  • If your last hit gives you a profit or makes you break even, you reset to the even chance level (i.e start over).

The rationale of the delayed parachute is that if it goes poorly, you will be covering locations with more numbers, giving yourself a better chance to getting some hits and “fluctuating” until the tide turns so you can maximize the chances to “be there”. i.e. bankroll preservation. On the other hand, you will catch the good streaks naturally covering higher-paying locations to increase your chances of a recovery and a successful session-end or reset point.

Betting example

You start at the even chance level. Using one (1) as your base unit, and stay there until you get a hit.
When you get a hit, you check your balance.
If your hit makes you a profit or breaks even, then you call it a reset and stay at the even-chance level.
If after your hit you are below your starting balance, then rise the betting unit +1, to 2 units, and move your bets to the dozens/column level.
If you miss 3 spins (a full dozen’s cycle) you regress and take your bets back to the even chance level.
If you hit while betting the cycle, you check your bankroll balance.
If your hit makes you break even on the initial balance or makes you any profit, then it’s time for a reset.
If -on the contrary- you are still below your initial balance, then rise +1 (to 3 units) and move your bets to the double-street level.
And there the same procedure for each level goes again.
If you miss 6 spins (a full double-street cycle) then regress your bets back to the dozens level.
If you hit, check your balance. If breaking even or in any profit, then it’s time to reset.
If on the contrary you are still holding a deficit, then rise your unit +1 (to 4 units) and move your bets to the corner/quad level.
Repeat the procedure for the level.
If you miss 9 spins without a hit, go back to double-street level.
If you hit, check your bankroll balance for a break even or profit.
If it’s a deficit, then rise +1 and move to the next higher-paying location level.

Same procedure for the rest of locations. Always using the cycle = payout to know how many spins to hold your bet on a location.

Comments

This strategy will definitely offer you some big, huge wins, but it is a bit on the aggressive, risky side!

Effectively this is a totally different method than the original and produces very unique results. Overall it is indeed a method worth studying, testing and maybe applying on the roulette tables. It has some weaknesses too though. It gets too aggressive on the splits level. See the betting example above. There is no need to spend 6 chips every spin, in order to hit a huge win. Betting 5 units on the split would give us a very nice profit with less risk.

There is also another important weakness, that in some way defies the purpose of the original parachute bet selection. In the original version you aim at a single number and close down to it. Whenever this number (or split) hit, you recouped your losses and were in profit. In this version we explain here this is not true. You are closing down to your split when the area is hot, but you go further away when their area is cold. The problem with this is that if your split hits while you are “away”, betting Even Chances (High Low) or Dozens, which will not make up your losses. So there is the bad scenario of your split hitting when you are away from it.

Anyway, it is a very interesting method, very different from most other systems out there and thanks to Victor (VLS) for sharing it.

Here is a demo of the strategy on real play with great commentary

The betting method of the original Parachute

 

The Russian slot machine trick

This case is believed to be connected with individuals in Russia and begins some eight years ago back in 2009. It is alleged that a team of four working in tandem could net upwards of $250,000 in a single week and all through playing slot machines in various Casinos all over the world.

The trick was reportedly first noticed back in June in 2014 at the Lumiere Place Casino in St. Louis. Bosses discovered that more had been paid out than should have been possible and this was despite the fact no-one had won any jackpots. Cue an inquiry, which found that one individual – eventually identified through car rental records as Murat Bliev, a Russian native – had been discreetly holding an electronic device, an iPhone, close to the game’s screen.

Initially he’d wouldn’t be so fortunate, before then leaving and returning a short time later to the same machine, where he would win over $1000 having invested less than $60, and sometimes as little as $20. Over two days he had amassed winnings totally around $20,000. When the results of the inquiry were communicated to the Missouri Gaming Commission and shared, other casinos discovered they had also been affected and all with the same slot machine, the Aristocrat Mark VI.

Origins
When Russia shut all its casinos back in 2009, at least 300,000 people were made unemployed, casinos claimed at the time.

While official figures from the Kremlin said that figure was exaggerated and no-more than 15,000, it did leave a lot of infrastructure – and a lot of slot machines – gathering dust. Some made their way to those who were eager to learn their secrets. Slot machines may have evolved and become more complex over the years, but they are still far from non-hackable.

Indeed the pseudo random number generators, as the name ‘pseudo’ itself suggests, isn’t that random at all and through some clever reverse engineering they were able to de-code the secret algorithms. It meant that when Bliev recorded two-dozen spins on the slot machines with his i-Phone, that information was then sent back to St. Petersburg where it was analysed and cracked. Timing markers would then be sent back to Bliev’s i-Phone and it would vibrate 0.25secs before he should hit the spin button – a very clever trick!

FBI
When Bliev returned to the United States on 3rd December 2014, he linked up with three others’ – Ivan Gudalov, Igor Larenov, and Yevgeniy Nazarov – playing in at least 10 casinos in Missouri, California, and Illinois. Bliev, however, was recognized a week or so later by security at the Hollywood Casino in St. Louis with the FBI later announcing it had indicted all four.

Today
Despite what happened, however, the ‘trick’ is still used and in June 2016, Czech national Radoslav Skubnik was detained in Singapore for the same reason and apparently working for the same Russian organization. Winnings recovered amounted to around $120,000, although this time he didn’t have to hold the iPhone to the slot machine, instead it was concealed in his shirt pocket. The trick had evolved and the goal posts had been moved. My question is how will they move on next? I think it will be interesting to see – and it will be fascinating to see how the casinos respond.

The Consistent Profit Roulette system (CPR)

Chuck Sutton claims this to be the most consistently profitable betting method ever invented for roulette. Here are the simple, fast and dirty rules of the CPR system published in 1997. This strategy has 3 modes.

Wait mode

1. Each partner bets one unit, or a “table minimum” Bet, whichever is greater. One bets on “red”, And the other on “black”, while waiting for The “coast mode” to develop. Your bets will Cancel each other out, minus the occasional Bet lost to a “green” hit (“0” or “00”).
Suggestions for the “single player wait mode” include possible 2-to-l bets, like columns or dozens.

Record all “decisions” on the score sheet in the correct column for the winning number.
Be sure they are in the correct section.

  • watch the score sheet.
  • look for a developing “starving” section, i. e. the requisite number of misses in a row, in a single column.

When a column has enough misses to begin play, shift immediately into the “coast mode.”

Coast mode

Immediately, on the very next spin, place one unit bets on all the numbers in the “qualified” section (9 numbers for single player or 12 numbers for partner play). Always assume you will lose the current
Spin, therefore prepare bet-stacks in the amount shown for the next level on your “b. P.” chart for all numbers in the “active” section.

If you lose, continue to place your bets according to the “b. P.” chart until you get the first “hit” in your section. When the ball makes its first “decision” in your section, shift immediately into the “attack mode.”

Attack mode

Place one unit bets on all the numbers in the same section you were playing in the “coast mode.” Follow the conservative or aggressive “attack mode” b. P. Chart (your choice) until a “miss” occurs.
When a miss comes, look for another qualified section. If there is no qualified section then switch back to the “wait mode,” red and black bets.

CPR summary

1. Divide the wheel into 3 or 4 pie-shaped sections, depending on partner or single play.
2. Wait for 7 or 9 consecutive misses in one section, depending on partner or single play.
3. Then shift to the “coast mode” and bet that section until it hits.
4. Shift to the “attack mode” and keep on betting the same section until it misses.
5. Shift back to the “wait mode” until you find another section that has missed the requisite number (7 or 9) times in a row
Then repeat the process.
This is all there is to CPR method!!

What NOT to do

We must make a few points about what we DO NOT DO in this system. We play roulette quite differently than the other players at our table. This is probably what Art meant about “…not having any bad habits to break.” If you have played roulette previously then you will be especially interested in the following differences about the CPR method of play.

  1. We never “split” our bets between two or more numbers. We play all numbers”on the nose”, or “straight up”, never on the line between numbers. When we WIN we want to be paid the full odds of 35-to-one, not 17-to-l . . or worse yet . . only 11, 8, 6, or 5-to-l.
  2. We play more number spots per wheel-spin than most other players.
  3. We do not play “in the center” on the numbers on every spin.
  4. We don’t begin to play on the center numbers until we get a “POSITIVE INDICATION” to begin. In other words, NOT when we first sit down at the table.
  5. We play on the exact same numbers repeatedly.
  6. Do not be confused by the way others may play at your table.

Great Universal Theory (G.U.T.) system by Winkel

G.U.T. strategy in a Nutshell

This is one of the most talked about and cryptic roulette strategies and it is based on the law of the third – meaning that, on average, in 36 spins one third of the numbers hits once, one third hits more than once and one third doesn’t hit.

Method: Basically GUT revolves around one major bet. Smaller bets are also available.
In a nutshell, (the major bet) you have un-hit and hit once (or more) numbers.

Un-hit  //   Hit
36 0 (when you start playing)

Main bet

As the numbers come in, the unhit numbers will decrease and the hit numbers will increase.
(You have to keep track of the unhit ones (which ones they are)

Unhit   //  Hit (example)
15 15
or
16 15

Now, when the unhit numbers equal total hit numbers (preferably 18 numbers or less) it is time to bet all of the un-hit numbers one time.

Smaller bets

Of the hit numbers, you can wager when once hit, twice hit or more equal each other…
Example:

Once hit   //   Twice Hit
8 8

You would bet the 8 once hit numbers (one time)

Winkel wrote (in 2008):

This is one of my ultimate systems that win flat bet, no progression needed.

With pink are the sleepers (cold numbers), with yellow the numbers that hit once, with Blue the numbers tat hit twice, with Magenda the numbers that hit 3 times and with green all the numbers that hit

As you see in this graph there is one thing for sure: The Lines have to cross!

to play that is very simple.
You can start at any point, at any casino, at any table.

First the basics:
We know at the first spin there has to appear one number, so we count:
36 not appeared – 1 appeared
35 – 2
34 – 3 etc.

then we might come to this point:
19 – 18
now we bet the 19 numbers that not appeared because the statistic has to change to 18 – 19
during the spins we bet when the following combinations appear:
19 – 18
18 – 17
17 – 17
17 – 16
16 – 16
16 – 15
15 – 15
15 – 14
14 – 14
14 – 13
etc.

The difference between appeared and not appeared numbers has to be 0 or 1.
The second bet situation:
we have numbers that appeared once and numbers that appeared more than once:
every time there is a difference of 0 or 1, we bet the numbers that appeared once.
The third situation to bet:
We have numbers that appeared twice and numbers that appeared more than twice.
every time there is a difference of 0 or 1, we bet the numbers that appeared twice.

if we have to bet 19 or 18, we just bet once
if we have to bet less than 18, then we bet as often as there is a win or 0 possible:
17 to 13 numbers – we bet twice
12 to 10 – we bet three times
9 to 8 – we bet four times

One example
0x 1x >1x
19 13 5 bet 19numbers
19 12 6 loss -19
19 11 7
18 12 7
18 12 7
17 13 7
17 13 7
17 13 7
16 14 7
15 15 7 bet 15 numbers
14 16 7 win -15+36-19=+2
14 15 8
14 14 9 bet 14 numbers
14 14 9 loss -14 +2 = -12 and bet again
13 15 9 win -14 +36 -12 = +10
12 16 9
12 15 10

Wildcard’s reply

Sam, from what I can gather, you don´t really need to add…

You are under the (false) impression that you need to sum the 1x and the >1 together. On the 1st example it happens to be true, however, the NOT APPEARED count keeps decreasing as the other two keep increasing, so there will be a point from which one on-wards you will never get that sum to be equal or lower to the NOT APPEARED value.

Forget about adding, concentrate on subtracting.

Here you have : (10) 19 11 7

19- (11 + 7) = 1 = betting opportunity …….. Now we are at school 🙂 On this example the sum is fine because 19 numbers that did not appear minus the sum of the numbers that appeared once and those that appeared more than once is one (1).

But then you wish to do the same about (31) 13 12 12 … In this case, the sum would be worthless.
The idea here is relating 13 and 12…… betting the 13 (numbers) left un-hit.
WHY ? Because you have 13 minus 12 = 1 = betting opportunity, as per the rules.
Capice ?

Now, the question here is what to do about the 12 12 since I believe it might be considered a trigger also. Either that or I am also lost here. HELP winkel

Winkel’s reply

Now, the question here is what to do about the 12 12 since I believe it might be considered a trigger also.

That is a problem that sometimes appears.
It is a law that the numbers that are in the game go straight to Zero (see the diagram in first post “red line)
So we play the Non-appearers at first.

On the other hand:
If you would have decided to play the 12 once-appearers (numbers that appeared once) what would have happened?:
31 13 12 12
25 12 13 12 loss -12
27 12 13 12 loss -12
17 11 14 12 loss -12 and now the difference is “2” so stop playing and look for another “crossing-situation”
27 11 14 12

This is a build-in stop-loss
If there is no other crossing in sight, just start collecting new numbers starting with 37 – 0!

Same if we have continued playing the 13 N – 12 F
25 12 13 12 betting 13 once-app.
27 12 13 12 loss -13
17 11 14 12 loss -13 stop playing because we play 13 only twice!

Should you have a Stop Loss?

What is stop loss?

Stop loss is the absolute or relative (as percentage of some other parameter) limit you pose on your losses. After the specified amount of loss is reached you stop. The point of stop loss is to minimize your losses or (in special cases) to preserve your profits. There are various opinions about the use and value of the use of stop loss, ranging from that it is the secret to success to being totally useless. We present the main points of view so you can make up your mind.

use stop loss

Don’t use stop loss

Stop-loss is nonsense and shouldn’t be worked into a method/system.

Almost some sort of fallacy – If you’re in a relay race and you tell yourself that “if I get to 4th place in the race I’ll stop running” Then obviously you will never win that race. You theoretically could still have won – but you stopped running because some made up rule forced you to stop the race when you reached a certain place.

Investors may use it – because investing is not ‘random’. There is also not a house edge with investing – you don’t start in some uphill battle for profit. Anyway – laughs. No one wants to hear that.

It sounds better to call it some safety net that protects your bankroll – because that’s appealing
to someone who doesn’t want to lose what they have.

When you’re losing and hit that imaginary point and get up from the table – the next spin your “bet” would have won and put you into profit again… think to yourself how that ‘stop loss’ exit point helped. At least you’ll have something in your pocket ? That’s not how winners think.

To pick some predetermined point to stop and then starting again some other day does absolutely nothing to change the outcome, it just delays it – which might ‘seem’ like winning?

Advantage Play

Reasons for the stop loss in games where the player may have the advantage:

  1. The player perceives a change in the playing conditions that may effect his ability to win.
  2. The X factor, a change that may have an effect but that’s currently unknown. Stopping enables the player to step back, and track in order to see if the current draw down is the result of a physical change or possibly just variance.

In the random game where the player doesn’t have the edge:

  1. The stop loss has no value because there is no “right time to quit”
  2. Nothing happens in between sessions that will enable the player to magically return and win.
  3. It’s not possible to side step variance by watching on the sidelines.
  4. Money management/ stop losses don’t have an effect on the house edge.

Bankroll Stop loss

There are two types of bankroll related stop-loss:

  1. one that follows a trend in the “market”
  2. one that follows a trend in your “equity” (bankroll)

Long story short, for “stop loss” to make sense, you have to come up with trend following scenarios for roulette, or what might be called variance following scenarios. Either your opinion about direction has to change, or the size of your bet has to change in order for there to be a “stop loss”.

In flat-betting, you can only stop betting and observe what happens when you are stopped. Ideally then, changing conditions (triggers) might call for you to start flat-betting again. The main thing here is the size of your base-unit relative to your bankroll. You would be STOPPED if your base-unit size was too large to begin with. Otherwise, you would not really stop.

Determining a base-unit size depends on looking at a lot of data, and again, only makes sense if you somehow stand a chance over the long haul, somehow defying the house edge.

Again, determining stop loss limits depends on looking at a lot of data given a positive outcome scenario. I doubt the size of a stop loss could be the difference between winning and losing (a lot of data could determine that), but could well increase performance if you have a winning way of following trends (which may also include a winning way of leveraging or avoiding “chop”).

Experience

Out of experience and practice comes this: talking about average events (most frequent events that happen) before comes a certain loss there is a chance of recovering it during a session. After this limit is over, and you get loss again there is most likely no chance to recover it, you will go down deeper and deeper almost for sure. You have to figure it out with practice and experience, you have to get feeling of it to know. It takes time and patience. And you don’t always have to play real money.

Best roulette bets, odds and table layouts

Roulette table types

First let’s get an idea of the roulette table variations. The differences between the different types of tables are not huge, so I will avoid confusing you with details.

European roulette table 

The European roulette table has only one zero (0) and offers better payouts than the American roulette, which has two zeroes (0, 00).

European table layout

American roulette table

As you can see the American roulette table is like the European with the main difference being the additional double zero (00). Although American roulette has one extra number (double zero), the payouts are the same as in the European version. This means that the player who plays American has a bigger disadvantage (-5,4%) versus the European game (-2,7%) because he plays against more numbers/possibilities and his probability of win is a bit lower.

French roulette table

French roulette table layout

In the image above you can see that the French roulette table has a different layout for the bets. Maybe the biggest difference is that the place for the dozen bets is the lower left and right parts of the table (see: P12, M12, D12). P12 is the bet for the first dozen numbers (1-12). M12 is the bet for the second dozen numbers (13-24) and D12 is the bet for the third dozen numbers (25-36).

Payout wise the French roulette is the same as the European roulette, since it only has one zero and 37 numbers in total. In some casinos French roulette can be even more advantageous for the player than the European type. Some French roulette games offer one of the two following rules, which partially protect the player when “zero” (0) comes:

  • La Partage rule: The player loses only half his bet when he has bet Red, Black, High, Low, Odd or Even (Even Chance Bets) and zero (0) has come.
  • En prison rule: The player bet stays intact when he has bet Red, Black, High, Low, Odd or Even (Even Chance Bets) and zero (0) has come. The outcome of the next spin will decide if the player wins or loses the bet.

Due to these rules, some French roulette games offer only -1,4% disadvantage when the players bets on  Red, Black, High, Low, Odd or Even; these bets are also called Even or Simple Chance betsbecause the pay out as much as you have bet and have nearly 50% chance of winning.

Best and Worse Roulette Bets

The truth is that in general almost all bets in the roulette table are equal in terms of Average Expectation or simply put Risk/Reward ratio. Keep in mind however these small differentiations:

  • Single zero roulette is less disadvantageous for the player than European roulette: -2,7% versus -5,4%
  • French roulette with special rules can be better than European, if the player bets Red, Black, High, Low, Odd or Even: -1,4% versus 2,7%.

There is however one worst wager one can make in roulette. This bet is exclusive to American roulette and is called “Top line bet“. That is betting on 0, 00, 1, 2, 3. For this wager the player disadvantage in American roulette explodes from -5,6% to an unplayable -7,9%. This is because the casino pays you 6 times your money instead of 6,2 times your money, which is already bad enough with -5,6% disadvantage. Basically you wager 5 numbers for the price of six.

Reduced risk roulette

Roulette is one casino game that is widely considered to be a matter of pure luck and blind risk, rather than one of skill and strategy, but beginning to play while holding this belief is a sure fire way of ending up a roulette write-off. This piece is intended to serve as a basic guide to playing roulette in a more canny fashion, to give you a better chance of ending up on top.

Invented during the 18th century, the word ‘roulette’ is French for ‘little wheel’ reflecting the wheel that is at the heart of the game. The basic principle behind the different versions of the game – from American to European Roulette – is that the wheel has numbers and red and black colours and you bet on which number or colour the ball will land on when the wheel stops spinning. There are differences in the number of green ‘0’ colours on an American or European roulette wheel – with American ones having two and thus a higher house edge, while the European wheels have a single green ‘0’ pocket. The green 0 pockets are referred to as banker’s slots and the existence of two on an American Roulette wheel increases the odds in favour of the casino, at 5.26 percent, while opting for European Roulette reduces the house advantage to just 2.7 percent. Thus to begin with, you are far better off trying to find a European Roulette game to play.

The next strategy to reduce your risk of heavy losses is to restrict how much you actually bet, based on your bankroll – as you want to survive as long as possible. A lot of the commonly touted roulette strategies, notably the famed Martingale strategy, make it difficult to do this as they require you to keep upping your bet for each loss, until you eventually win. The point behind this to ensure that all of these losses are finally offset by a huge win, but it will not work as a strategy unless you have a big bankroll, as you will simply be wiped out before you get to that point. Thus, skip the Martingale strategy unless you are rich and keep the bets small while you are losing. Equally, betting on certain numbers based on the idea that they are ‘lucky’ is not a good strategy if you want to come out on top – as there simply are no lucky numbers. A number of players do deploy this sort of superstitious approach, but they are highly unlikely to be the ones walking away with winnings. A much more effective strategy is to purchase 20 £1 chips, and put five stacks of four chips onto five of the available six-line bets, spreading the chips across two rows to cover the maximum amount of numbers. This gives you a very strong chance of a win, albeit not a massive one. However it can be repeated or expanded upon by taking the 24 chips you now have and putting two stacks of 12 on a couple of the available three dozens. Again, it gives you good winning odds and would get you up to 36 chips.

In conclusion, there are strategies out there whilst trying your hand at playing online roulette, and now that you have been shown some of the available ones it is time to test them out by hitting the online roulette tables.

1. Follow a Pattern

Don’t forget to notice the pattern, if you’re playing roulette online. Though, some players believe that it is a waste of time, but the trained players analyze the pattern of the game, carefully. According to them, their experiences have taught them that there is a pattern, even in online games. All you need to do is to study that person who is winning constantly. Analyze his strategy and canvass how he’s signing the checks. In case you feel there is some specific pattern, which he is following, consciously or unconsciously, follow that pattern too; there is a huge chance that you’ll be on the course of winning as well.

2. Win a Small Amount

When it comes to playing online roulette safely, it’s better to focus on winning the small amounts, rather than the huge bets. For instance: bet on lots of numbers instead of betting on just one number. It would immensely increase your chances of winning. Unfortunately, some fresh players make a mistake of dropping money on a specific number. The hunger of winning big doesn’t allow them to perceive that this strategy can jeopardize their savings, as the ratio of winning is rather low. And, on the statistical level, it’s almost like a miracle to have jaw-dropping win.

3. Follow a winner or a pro

Especially, if it’s your first time, canvass some professional carefully. Read his strategies and discover, or ask, why he bets on the specific numbers, or change his strategy. It’s important because most professional players play according to their own specific strategy and build their bankroll through it; they’ve created it after experiencing so much high and lows in the game. And, no one knows, regarding the odds, better than them. For instance, some increase their bets when they win, while others lower them when everything goes in their favor. So, spend some time with the best to understand the strategy of the game. (Interview with Christian Kaisan – professional roulette player)

4. The Mood of Roulette

Believe it or not, but roulette has its own mood as well – it is called trend. If you would spend some time with them, you’ll feel that too. In the casino, players who rise above the head and shoulders of their competitors are often the senior players of the casino. They recognize each tad detail regarding the roulette and know how it works or favor the specific numbers or colors. This precedence facilitates them to predict the mood of the roulette and stay on top of their game. I agree, it is a tad hard to get this online, but you can if you just spend some time with it, and see which color, or numbers are earning the highest favors.

5. Don’t Cross the Deadline

If you’ve a fortune in your hands, it doesn’t mean you should try big risks. There should be a deadline that can halt you, and not allow you to spend a single penny more. If you feel, today, you’ve lost your common touch, and the luck isn’t rubbing you in a great way, control your stubborn ego and leave the table. Every day isn’t a blessing from heaven. And, sometimes, you won’t accomplish the expected results. For that reason, never ever spend more than your limit, as in roulette, it’s all about respecting your budget’s limit.

6. Keep the Profit

In case you are on a winning streak try to keep your profits. You shouldn’t put your profits on risk again. As said by the professional online roulette players, just play with a limited amount. If you’re earning something back, keep it; it’s your reward. Don’t become the victim of temptation and think that putting more money – profits – at stake would facilitate you to grab the winner’s trophy… In reality, it won’t. You could lose the profits in a single bet and trap yourself in the whirlpool of this game.

Concluding Thoughts

We aren’t the dinosaurs anymore; it’s a 21st century, and we play roulette. Therefore, before playing your next roulette game – especially online – keep these six points in mind, as they’ll guarantee your well being, and won’t allow you to drop on the ground. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a pro, or just testing this game for the first time; these rules always wear the crown, and transform you into a music that moves a million – roulette wheel.

Don't be a fool: 8 smart tips to survive at Roulette

The first step to win at roulette is to not lose. Never forget that. Because very often going for the big win can be disastrous, while staying away for the big loss can be a better attitude and can actually make you a profit.

Man, as you know is an intelligent animal. He is a crafty fellow too. Many men are on the lookout to earn a quick buck. This may make them resort to gambling as well as certain other illegal means. Gambling is in man’s blood right since his advent on Earth. It has taken different forms in different eras. Roulette is one of the oldest forms of gambling in the world. It has a history dating back several hundreds of years.

Roulette is a game based on chance. You should face the truth that the chances of winning are always lower in comparison with losing. That is the nature of the game. However, you can master certain strategies and tricks to maximize your profits and minimize your loss. We shall share with you these tips. However, we shall divide them into three categories.

best roulette tips
Make sure you follow these basic tips.

Maximize Your Profits

One way to gain at Roulette is to maximize your gains. We shall see how you can do that in the following ways.

  1. Spin the wheel a couple of times before playing your turn
    In case you play Roulette at a casino, you should do these tricks to eliminate the biases. Some wheels have a greater tendency to land on odd numbers. You should also look at the electronic board above. You should observe the casino croupiers spinning the wheels. The worker may be on his job for a long time and still he spins the wheel at the same force resulting in a possible bias.
  2. Practice your play at a free table
    Many online casinos have free practice tables. You should always practice there before going to play on a real table. This can increase your confidence and let you get a feel of the game. You should also talk to the dealer and study the strategies adopted by the other players.
  3. Play European Roulette and never American Roulette
    There is a basic difference between the American and the European Roulette. The American version has an extra slot (00) decreasing your chances of winning by a slight percentage. In case you have an option, go for playing the European Roulette.
  4. Be careful while playing online
    Online gambling is here to stay. However, there can be many frauds associated with online gambling. They may be ruses to make you part with your bank details allowing them to clean up your account later on. Verify the genuineness of the website before taking the plunge. Read our 6 best online casino tips for beginners.

Minimize your losses

This is a very old business adage. In case you are not able to make gains, you should try to minimize your losses. The same holds good here too. This is how you can do it.

  1. Know your limits
    You know Roulette is a gambling game. You should bet only up to the amount you can afford to lose. It would be difficult to hold yourself while playing. The normal tendency is that people would try to gain whatever they have lost by betting repeatedly. In the process, they lose more. You should know your limits. It would be better if have a friend along with you to help you out. He can have a different perspective to things and may be able to keep watch on your losses.
  2. Withdraw profits as you earn them
    This is a very old business technique. You should withdraw your profits every time you earn them. In this way, you can minimize your losses. We shall cite a small example to clarify matters. In case you start out with $ 100 and end up at $ 150, you should withdraw the gains, $ 50 and keep betting with the initial $ 100. In this way, you can ensure your losses do not go over $ 50. In case you win more, keep on withdrawing the amounts over $ 100. This would enable you to reach the break-even point soon.
  3. Stick to the outside
    The game is a funny one. By sticking to the outside, you may win less. However, it also ensures that you lose less too. We shall see a simple example. In case, you bid red/black, high/low, or odd/even, the chances of winning are slightly more. The returns may be low (1:1). It is always better to bid on two numbers rather than say five. You can have two bets such as red and odd. You can cover more numbers in this way and hence you minimize your chances of losing.

Have a clear betting strategy

You should have a clear betting strategy on hand. This would go a great way in winning at Roulette. i strongly advise you to read our full collection of free roulette systems, study them and chose the one you feel more comfortable with. there are some great strategies there including the best winning methods for dozens and columns. Anyway, here are some short and rough roulette systems just for your interest. However I definitely DO NOT advise on using them unless you really know what you are doing.

  1. Double Up: Martingale strategy
    You can use the “Martingale” strategy. This is a very simple and time-tested strategy. You can see how we do it. In case you play betting red versus black and you bet say $ 5 on red. The roulette ends on a black. You lose your $ 5. You should now continue with doubling your money, but bet on the same red color. You may lose $ 10 this time. However, you should continue doubling the bet and go for the same color. The wheels may turn in your favor eventually.
  2. James Bond Roulette Strategy
    You should split up your bets on different permutations and combinations. In this way, you might miss some whereas you may win on some too. We shall give you a small example. In case you have a budget of say $ 200, you can distribute your bets as follows. You can put $ 120 on the high numbers (19 to 36), $ 60 on the six numbers (13 to 18), and $ 20 on Zero. The only way for you to lose is if the numbers end up as between 1 to 12. In such an eventuality, you can go for the Martingale strategy.
  3. En prison and La Partage rules
    You can use this strategy on the French roulette type only. Let us assume you bet on black. The ball usually would land on zero. The house will keep the money and the ball spins again. In case it lands on a black, you get back your $ 10. In this game, you actually do not win anything. This is a rare form of Roulette.

Conclusion
You have seen some tips to help you win at Roulette. However, there is no clear formula ensuring that you win always. In case everybody starts doing it, the gambling houses would close down. You should do well to remember that.
