I love casinos and roulette is probably my favorite game, although I have recently become rather fond of Baccarat.  This site will be about one specific aspect of roulette and that is the variety of systems and methods that exist.  You may be surprised to find out the sheer number of such systems that exist.

Wherever possible I will try to include an opinion of the particular system, some of the mathematics behind it and clear guidelines on how it actually works.   All the major ones will be included here starting with the Martingale and it’s many variants.  The important thing to remember across all of these systems is the following two points which apply to them all –

  • No roulette system will change the odds of the wheel.
  • No strategy will ever guarantee you winning.

These are important points to remember, roulette like most casino games has a negative expectation.  That is you should expect to lose if you play it for too long.  The house has an advantage built into the rules of each game – it’s known as the house edge and you can’t get rid of it.  There are some who claim they have methods to nullify this advantage but all of them are incorrect.

Using Roulette Systems

You will see that although there is no inherent advantage to playing a system as far as the core probability is involved, there are usually no disadvantages either.  As long as  you don’t modify your expectations, most (but not all) are relatively harmless.

It is important to remember that roulette and all the games in the casino are meant to fun.  It is a form of entertainment not a money making pastime, sure sometimes you win but often you will lose – no system will change this.  If a system is boring then stop using it – there’s simply no point to playing roulette with or without a system if it’s not fun.  If you’re looking for money making schemes – playing roulette is not a smart one.

So enjoy our site and if you fancy trying out a systems feel free, eventually they will all be here as I transfer all the ones I have come across over the years.   Never pay for a system for a game of chance like roulette – it will be worthless.  If you want to try any of these systems then why not practice on one of our free games here – it will give you a chance to evaluate without losing a fortune.  None of the games featured here are modified or enhanced so they can be used as good indicator of any roulette or casino game strategy that you wish to test.

Two budget shop workers who tried to stretch the takings of the day by betting it on a roulette table stepped down on the spot. It’s yet another example of relying on roulette is likely to be a mistake, particularly if you’re as dumb as this pair.

“Grossly ignorant” duo Kieron Trott, 19, and Christopher Cameron, 48, were assumed to bank the GBP3,380 taken by the Poundstretcher branch in Pallion Retail Park, in Sunderland, that day, but decided they needed to feel what “gambling on red” was like instead.

Where they each pleaded guilty to theft by worker, the gamble cost them their jobs, but landed them in court.

In scenes “almost like something from a humor” according to Cameron’s defence lawyer Ian Cassidy, the pair took the cash to some casino but kept landing on black and blew the money within minutes, after being left in charge of the store.

Then they phoned their manager and calmly told her to phone the authorities last October, before resigning.

Mr Cassidy told Sunderland Magistrates Court said Cameron had never even been to a casino before.

Mr Cassidy explained: “Part of the routine is to check the cash that is taken that day.

“They are joking saying what would it be like if we took this money and gambled it. Unbelievably, they convinced themselves to do this.

“The were seen transferring the cash into chips then proceed to the table saying red?’ and ‘yes’.
Jason Smith said: They were saying ‘let us go and do this, we might make some cash’.

Lee Poppett, prosecuting, said: “At 9pm she received a call from Mr Trott stating that she needed to return to the shop since they’d gambled away the takings.

“She believed it was a form of joke, but Mr Trott said ‘the’m not joking, phone the police’.

Trott and Cameron have been in the procedure for repaying the money. Trott, of Hendon, Tyne and Wear of Washington, Sunderland, and Cameron, were given 12-month community orders and were told to pay GBP110 each in prices.

Trott, was told while Cameron will have to do 66 hours, to carry out 100 hours unpaid work.
