Roulette is the oldest of all the casino games. It has been Europe’s favorite gambling game since the latter part of the 18th century. Today, its popularity is worldwide. Can you imagine a casino without roulette tables? Playing roulette has become a form of entertainment for millions of people all over the globe.

For over two centuries the game has fascinated gamblers. Fortunes have been won and lost. Over the years, countless betting strategies have been devised for beating roulette.

Players intent on making a profit will do better with a good betting strategy that they feel comfortable with. You must have faith in a procedure before you can hope to be successful with it. I believe you will like and develop confidence in The Sure Roulette Method.

It is a well-known fact that roulette, and every other casino game, has a built-in house advantage that can’t be overcome. It’s true, in the long run, the house edge can’t be beaten, but in the short term those odds can often be cheated.

Proving that a roulette strategy can’t work by running it through 100,000 computer-generated spins doesn’t mean a thing, because when you go to the casino, at most, you’ll play a few hundred spins in a day. There is a big difference between long-term computer predictions and what happens in short-term real live situations.

While you hear “you can’t beat the casino in the long-run”, it doesn’t mean it can’t be done in the short-term. Over the long haul, the casino’s edge will prevail, but during controlled, relatively short playing sessions, a good betting method can produce excellent profits for the player. Knowing that a system isn’t infallible shouldn’t keep you from playing it. As long as it works more often than not, you’ll do better playing the system, than relying on hunches.

Playing winning roulette means playing systematically, playing wisely, playing patiently and with a strong determination to win. The idea of methodical play is to manipulate your bets so the probabilities are tilted in your favor. A good strategy encompasses all of the above and provides the player with a workable approach to winning.

All betting schemes are based on the laws of averages. If you flip a coin you know it’ll land heads or tails, but you can’t predict which. If you flip that coin 100 times, chances are it’ll land heads about the same number of times as tails, but in streaks and chops, not in a neatly alternating fashion.

Roulette is a mechanical game. Because no one can predict the outcome of the next spin, a systematic betting strategy will usually outperform random guessing. Methodical play eliminates guessing or emotional decisions. Your play becomes as mechanical as the game itself.

Ideally you want to maximize winnings, minimize losses and leave the casino with more money than you came in with. Multitudes of roulette systems promise to do all of this, except most of them fail for one or more reasons. Some are way too complicated, some require too large a bankroll and others are just plain boring to play.

Casinos win, not so much because of their advantage in percentages, but because they play their own version of a system. Their system is having virtually unlimited capital with which to grind down the player.

Here is a simple illustration: Let’s say you have a $500 bankroll and you bet against someone who has $100,000. If you play long enough, you will eventually hit a temporary streak of bad luck, your $500 will run out and you can’t make any more bets. Your opponent doesn’t even need a percentage advantage; you simply can’t last because you don’t have enough capital.

That’s why you have to be cautious with your money. A good betting method helps you to manage your money, so you won’t get defeated by maximum table limits or an insufficient bankroll.

Systematic play gives you two important advantages over the casino: you control your betting according to how your luck runs and you quit the moment you have reached or exceeded what you set out to win.

Too often players are defeated at the table because when they start losing they are in too much of a hurry to get their money back. Or, if they win, they stay at the table too long. They get greedy and start playing for higher stakes, and then end up losing everything. The Sure Roulette Method also involves sound money management that protects you from making those mistakes.

There are all sorts of roulette systems available. Some are layout or outside systems, others are number or inside systems. Layout systems usually involve even-money betting on Red/Black, Odd/Even or High/Low.

Some systems incorporate the Dozens and Column bets. Number or Inside systems bet on individual numbers, number patterns, or sections of the wheel.

When evaluating any gambling method or strategy, don’t be fooled by what appears nearly foolproof. Test and evaluate every scheme carefully, before you risk much money playing it.

Take, for example, a popular system involving simultaneous bets on a color (even-money) and a column (paying 2 to 1). The system is appealing because it gives the player 26 ways to win against 12 ways to lose.

Theoretically if each number came up once in 38 spins, the player would win one unit 22 times and seven units four times — for a total win of 50 units. BUT he would lose his entire bet (5 units) on each of the 12 losing rounds, producing an overall net loss of 10 units! Therefore, the player can win only if random fluctuations from the expected norm produce disproportionately more decisions that are in the player’s favor.

Before we go any further, those readers who are not too familiar with how the game is played should return here after reading Basic Roulette Rules.

Even-Money Roulette Systems

Most even-money systems involve some kind of betting progression. One method (known as “Martingale”) is to double your bet after every loss, wagering units of 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 and so on until you win a bet, at which point you’d be ahead by one unit. Then you start again at the one-unit level. This system works as long as the game is choppy, but it can lead to disaster if you hit a long losing streak.

The theory is that no losing streak lasts forever. Sooner or later you win. You get all your money back and show a one-unit profit. There are three reasons why this assumption will eventually defeat you badly:

First, you probably wouldn’t have enough capital (or the guts to wager it), should you encounter a prolonged losing streak. Ten losses in a row would require your 11th bet to be 1,024 units! Up to this point you have already wagered and lost 1,023 units!

Second, even if you were able and willing to put that much capital at risk, chances are you wouldn’t be allowed to make that big a bet because the amount would exceed the maximum table limit.

Always ascertain what a table’s minimum and maximum betting limits are before start to play. Avoid tables with a $100 maximum limit on even-money bets, if there is a chance that at some point your system-play will require a single wager of more than $100.

Third, as you can see in the above example, starting with a betting unit of only $1, the stakes can mount up very quickly. On the other hand, a $1 unit is way too small. Winning $1 at a time, you’d have to stay at the table forever in order to accumulate an appreciable amount. Besides, very few live casinos offer $1 minimum tables. You can find many $1 games on the Internet.

The opposite, and perhaps wiser approach is to increase the size of your wager as you’re winning. The statistical odds are there will be more losing than winning hands (20-18 in 38 spins) and you’ll win only if, during a particular session, you get more than your fair share of decisions that are in your favor.

One way the double-up-after-every-loss progression might work is to wait for a pattern. Example: Don’t make any bets until you see one color (red or black) come up six times in a row. Then bet on the opposite color. Even if it takes another half-dozen spins before the pattern breaks, you’d have only 63 units at stake, because you sat out the first 6 spins.

This strategy keeps your betting levels well under the maximum table limit and practically guarantees you a win, but I doubt you will play this system. Endless waiting and watching for those patterns to develop is utterly boring. Besides, they won’t let you sit at the table for too long without placing any bets.

Inside Number Systems

Most inside, or number, systems are devised around the fact that, in any cycle of 38 spins, some numbers come up more than once and others don’t come up at all. Virtually never do all the numbers appear in 38 spins. This is known as the theory of uneven distribution and it’s what number systems are based on.

One system seller’s advertisement states “$25 bet pays $875.” Of course it does, because if you bet $25 on a single number you get paid 35x $25 = $875. All you have to do is pick the one winning number out of a possible 38! And therein lies the challenge of number systems. Where might the little white ball land next?

Different systems have different approaches to determining winning numbers. But no one has an infallible formula. You can bet that if anyone had ever invented a fool proof process for picking numbers, there would no longer be any roulette games in casinos.

There are, however, two ways of selecting potential winning numbers that have some merit. The first, and perhaps better method involves watching for numbers that repeat 4, 5, 6, and even 7 times in 80 spins of the wheel. Then one bets on the numbers that have repeated often. The same numbers appearing four and more times in 80 spins, and others showing up not at all, is usually due to random deviations in probability.

It’s possible, but less likely that a “biased” wheel causes the repeated appearance of certain numbers. The slightest defect in any part of the wheel could make the ball land on certain numbers more often than the laws of probability would suggest.

If you were ever lucky enough to discover a truly biased wheel, you wouldn’t need a betting system. As long as certain numbers consistently hit with greater-than-expected frequency, you’ll make money. That is, until the casino figures out what’s happening and replaces the wheel.

The other theory is to bet on the numbers that have not come up at all for a long time. Here again, the player keeps a written record of every number that turns up. The numbers that have not appeared in 80 spins may be due to hit. No guarantees, but if certain numbers have missed their theoretical turn, chances are they will come out of hiding before long.

These days, in practically all casinos you’ll find scoreboards at roulette tables that record the last 16 or 20 numbers. But you still need to make notes if you want to keep a record of the last 80 spins. Don’t be shy; it is not at all unusual for bettors to sit at the table armed with pen and paper.  And if you play online, it’s no problem at all. No one is watching.

The chance of collecting relatively big money makes betting on individual numbers more thrilling, but also more risky. Tracking the numbers has the potential of improving one’s chances. However, hovering around a table for a couple of hours, observing spin after spin before being able to place a bet is a total bore.

Enough about roulette systems, let’s get to what I prefer to call a roulette method. After examining dozens of roulette systems, I have developed what I believe is a better strategy than any others I’ve seen. And I don’t like to call it a system, because it’s more of a method. So I named it The Sure Roulette Method.

Winning with the Sure Roulette Method

The Sure Roulette Method is not a “get-rich-quick” scheme; it is an even-money strategy for winning slow and steady

Before we continue, be aware that this is not a strategy for greedy players who aim to double their bankroll in short order. Plan to be at the table for at least an hour. People invest their money in mutual funds and hope to achieve a 15% annual return. In real life they’d be very happy if their money grew by 15% a year but in the casino they expect to double or triple their money in no time!

The Sure Roulette Method is easy to follow and simple to play, yet it’s exciting, never boring. You can play at any betting level, without fear of exceeding reasonable table limits. You bet on every spin of the wheel and sometimes the adrenalin will really flow.

On average, you will win approximately 10 betting units per hour. At unit values of $5, $10 or $25, your hourly win potential is $50, $100 or $250 respectively.

Roulette is a streaky game. Looking at a series of spins of the wheel shows that Red/Black, Odd/Even, or High/Low usually appear in streaks, seldom alternately. Some streaks are short-lived, others longer. Patterns of consecutive hits develop at random.

Just because Red has appeared five times in a row doesn’t mean that black is more likely to come up on the next spin. What we do know for certain is that streaks very rarely last for more than 11 or 12 turns.

Doubling-up after losses (the Martingale system) is dangerous because the table limit will eventually defeat the player. In practically all casinos, the maximum betting limit is reached after doubling up eight times in a row.

The Sure Roulette Method is about winning one unit at a time, but by adding one unit to each consecutive losing bet, rather than doubling up. This way, stakes don’t mount up nearly as quickly, should we encounter an exceptionally long losing streak.

The process is simple. We win one unit at a time and we consider the winning of one unit as one completed round. A round ends as soon as we’ve won a unit, then we start fresh to win another. The round ends after only one spin of the wheel if it’s a win. In my experience, it takes between three and four spins, on average, to win a unit.

Playing this method in a Las Vegas casino, it took about eight hours to win $450 in $5 units. That meant winning 90 times, $5 each time. Forty-four of the 90 rounds won on the first spin, 14 won after two spins. The three longest rounds took 16, 19 and 30 spins before finally producing that one unit profit. The remaining 29 rounds lasted anywhere from three to 12 spins each, bringing the overall average to just over 3 1/2 spins per round.

In live casinos one can expect to get in 35 to 40 spins per hour. Online play is much faster. If our method play produces, on average, a one unit net win for every 3 1/2 to 4 spins, we can hope to win a minimum of 10 units per hour. At a unit value of $5, that would be $50 profit, or $250 at $25 a unit. Online you can do the same in less than half that time.

Should you bet on Red or Black, Odd or Even, High or Low?  Since the wheel produces unpredictable results, it is not important which of this even-money proposition you choose. Theoretically every one of them gives you 18 chances to win against 20 chances to lose, (don’t forget 0 and 00). Overall, winning and losing decisions will show up proportionally, but mostly in streaks, not in a neatly alternating sequence.

Since patterns can’t be predicted, make a choice and then bet the same way for the duration of the session. Don’t change your decision because of a temporary run of bad luck. If you’ve been betting red and for the least 6 spins black has been coming up, don’t start betting black. Red might show up for the next six spins.

Once you’ve decided on Red, Black, Odd, Even, High or Low, stick to it. Red or Black seems to be the favorite choices with most players. Perhaps that’s because colors are neatly separated on the display board.

In the following examples we talk about betting “units”. In my mind a unit is a $5 chip. But, of course, a unit could just as easily be $1, $10 or $25, depending on your budget.

Typical rounds might go something like this:

Round 1:

  • Bet 1 unit, lose = minus 1 unit
  • Next bet 2 units, lose = minus 3 units
  • Next bet 3 units, lose = minus 6 units
  • Next bet 4 units, win = still minus 2 units
  • Next bet 3 units, win = plus 1 unit
  • End of round.

Notice that after three straight losses, the count was minus six units (-6). We won the 4th bet, leaving us at minus 2 units. Since we’re aiming to win one unit at a time, the next wager needs to be only 3 units, not 5, as the progression would dictate.

Risking no more units than needed to get ahead by one unit keeps the progression from escalating too fast, should there be a string of losses, like in round 3.

Round 2:

  • Bet 1 unit, win = plus 1 unit
  • End of round.

Round 3:

  • Bet 1 unit, lose = minus 1 unit
  • Next bet 2 units, lose = minus 3 units
  • Next bet 3 units, lose = minus 6 units
  • Next bet 4 units, lose = minus 10 units
  • Next bet 5 units, lose = minus 15 units
  • Next bet 6 units, lose = minus 21 units
  • Next bet 7 units, lose = minus 28 units
  • Next bet 8 units, win = minus 20 units
  • Next bet 9 units, win = still minus 11 units
  • Next bet 10 units, lose = back to minus 21 units
  • Next bet 11 units, win = minus 10 units
  • Next bet 11 units, win = plus 1 unit
  • End of round.

In round 3 we had eight losses and only four wins, before finally ending up with our one-unit profit. What a ride, after the 7th bet we were down 28 units! But we recovered and won our one unit!

Round 4:

  • Bet 1 unit, lose = minus 1 unit
  • Next bet 2 units, lose = minus 3 units
  • Next bet 3 units, win = even
  • Next bet 1 unit, win = plus 1 unit
  • End of round

In this example we were even after the third round, requiring a fourth bet of only one unit.

It’s this easy. The betting progression is not complicated. When you lose, you simply increase the size of each subsequent bet by one unit until you’re ahead by one unit. Then you start a new round to win another unit. To catch up and get ahead by one unit, it will sometimes be necessary to win two or three bets in a row, (as in example #3, above).

As shown in round 1, at times you won’t have to keep the progression going. The count was minus 6, and then we won 4 units, leaving us at minus 2 units. Which means we needed to win only 3 units in order to get ahead by 1 unit. Therefore the next bet is 3 units, not 5, as the progression would call for.

In round #3, at one point we were minus 28 units, that’s $140 in the hole, playing $5 units, or $280 at $10 units, and a whopping $700 at a $25 unit value! It can get worse, very, very seldom, but it happens. You need faith in the system when you encounter a bad-luck string like this:

  • Bet 1 unit, lose = minus 1 unit
  • Next bet 2 units, lose = minus 3 units
  • Next bet 3 units, lose = minus 6 units
  • Next bet 4 units, lose = minus 10 units
  • Next bet 5 units, win = minus 5 units
  • Next bet 6 units, lose = minus 11 units
  • Next bet 7 units, win = minus 4 units
  • Next bet 5 units, lose = minus 9 units
  • Next bet 6 units, win = minus 3 units
  • Next bet 4 units, lose = minus 7 units
  • Next bet 5 units, lose = minus 12 units
  • Next bet 6 units, win = minus 6 units
  • Next bet 7 units, lose = minus 13 units
  • Next bet 8 units, lose = minus 21 units
  • Next bet 9 units, lose = minus 30 units
  • Next bet 10 units, win = minus 20 units
  • Next bet 11 units, lose = minus 31 units
  • Next bet 12 units, lose = minus 43 units
  • Next bet 13 units, lose = minus 56 units
  • Next bet 14 units, lose = minus 70 units
  • Next bet 15 units, win = minus 55 units
  • Next Bet 16 units, lose = minus 71 units
  • Next bet 17 units, win = minus 54 units
  • Next bet 18 units, win = minus 36 units
  • Next bet 19 units, win  = minus 17 units
  • Next bet 18 units, lose = minus 35 units
  • Next bet 19 units, win = minus 16 units
  • Next bet 17 units, lose = minus 33 units
  • Next bet 18 units, win = minus 15 units
  • Next bet 16 units, win = plus 1 unit
  • End of round.

At one point the count was minus 71 units. At $5 a unit, that’s $355. In this round we also came dangerously close to a $100 betting limit. The highest bet was 19 $5 units, or $95. ($5 tables often have a $100 limit on even money bets.)

You should not attempt to play this method unless you can buy-in for 100 times your unit value. If using $5 units you need a $500 bankroll. Hardly ever will you need to put anywhere near that much money into play, but you should be prepared.

Ninety-five percent of all failures in systematic play occur because the player doesn’t have sufficient capital to outlast the occasional lengthy losing streak.

Is there a chance you could lose your entire bankroll? Yes, it can happen, but the probability is small. Even if you averaged one disaster in 10 winning sessions, you’d still be nicely ahead.

When you have more than just a few chips in play, it is difficult to keep count so you’ll know when you’ve won a unit. Counting is easy if one betting unit is equal to one chip.

Keep your starting bankroll in 10-chip stacks, put the chips you’ve won in a separate pile. Make wagers only with chips from your original bankroll and restack them immediately after each win. That way you can quickly determine whether to continue the one-unit progression or how many units you must bet to reach your one-unit win goal.

Keeping track of your money is even easier when playing online. Your total cash and bet amounts are usually displayed on the screen. Also, when playing on the computer you have more time to review your situation. There is no dealer to hurry you on. You click the spin button when you’re ready.

You need to have confidence in this method. I encourage you to prove the strategy to yourself, before you wager any serious money. Don’t play for real until you feel sure the method is going to work. The best way to assess it thoroughly is by playing for free at an online casino.

Don’t want to download online casino software? No problem, simply take a pen, a piece of paper and a coin. Toss the coin and pretend heads is Red and tails is Black. Keep track of wins and losses as if you were playing at a roulette table.

Allow for the 5.26% casino advantage (0 and 00), by counting every 20th flip as a loss, regardless. The percentage is not exact, but it’s close enough for our purposes.

For financial or emotional reasons you may want to avoid the risk of losing a few hundred dollars, even if the possibility of loss is extremely remote. That is why I suggest you start by playing with “fun” money at an online casino. If you don’t want to bother with downloads, Sloto’Cash Casino is available in no-download and they’ll let you play for free.

On the other hand, if gambling with play money is not your idea of excitement, but you want to prevent excessive strains on your bankroll, search out an on-line casino that permits $1 minimum bets. A good one is Uptown Aces Casino, where they have $1 minimum bets even on their European (single zero) roulette table.

Choosing a single zero game gives you better odds. When playing this Sure Roulette Method on the American (0 and 00) wheel the win loss ratio is 18 to 20, whereas on the European (single 0) wheel it’s 18 to 19 (only one zero). When there is a choice, it makes sense to opt for the more favorable odds.

Only low-limit tables I know of when it comes to brick-and-mortar casinos, are in Las Vegas. In some of the smaller casinos you can still find roulette games with $1 limits. Here a bankroll of $100 is all you need. The trade-off, of course, is that you’ll win only $10 per hour, instead of $50 or more.
