Players often use roulette systems to increase their chances of winning. However, there are two reasons they don’t work.
Roulette Is a Random Game Of Chance
Roulette is a game that involves chance, so the house always has an edge. Other methods can cancel out the longer-term effects of roulette systems. Casinos are intelligent and have rules to stop you from getting an edge. Let’s take an example:
The House Advantage
Money management and roulette systems can’t affect the house advantage on any wager or guarantee you will win more. Before you apply a system, the house has an advantage. It has the same advantage once you have applied it. The house edge is permanent. You cannot alter or manage the house’s advantage.
Roulette Money Management
Martingale is an online money management system. It is very popular. The dollar value of your bets keeps increasing after losses until you win.
Martingale is a simple system that looks very logical. It assumes that you cannot lose an infinite number of consecutive games.
This rule is usually applied to ‘even money bets. It states that you should double your winnings after every losing bet. Casinos are aware of this and have table limits. However, let’s not forget about the flaws of the Martingale system.
Let’s make even-money wagers. Let’s now look at an example showing the Martingale system operating with a $5 wager and a $500 table limit.
- You bet $10.
- You bet $20.
- You bet $40.
- You bet $80.
- You bet $160.
- You bet $320.
- You bet $640;
We are sorry, but you have reached the limit of your table. The flaws and drawbacks of the Martingale System are obvious:
Each Spin Is a Random Event. Martingale works on the assumption that you must win eventually. This is true, even though there are infinitely many events. However, a winning or losing streak can’t be predicted in advance.
If you had a huge bankroll, you could win and keep going forever. But casinos know this and are ready to take action.
Limits for Tables
All casinos have a minimum and maximum limit to prevent doubled-up consecutive bets. It was a minimum $10 Max $500 in the example above, which only allows six bets and can result in six losses or more.
The Martingale system can’t be used after the table limit has been reached. Your money will be lost. Casinos don’t think so, they know how to play the odds, and table limits make this possible.
- The Martingale system doesn’t work because of its dependence on luck and table limits.
- What can be done to reduce the house edge and make profits?
- Roulette systems for money management have been around for a while, but none of them works.
You can make sure your money lasts longer by taking simple steps that increase your chances of winning. You can also place bets that have low odds (e.g., betting red or black will result in a win of 45%) and bets that have higher odds of winning.
It is also important to use the correct rules and play the right wheel.
