Other Roulette Betting Systems

More Roulette SystemsThere are about as many roulette systems as there are roulette tables, with more “infallible” systems popping up every day from your friends and from the guy across the road.

I wouldn't be able to cover them all if I tried, so here is a quick summary of the best of the rest for you.

The Anti-Martingale System

Yep, you guessed it, this is the opposite of the Martingale system.

Instead of doubling your bets when you lose, you double the size of your bet when you win.

This kind of system is favourable for those that believe in lucky streaks, and so this method will increase the amount that you win if you ever do embark upon an elusive 'hot streak'.

The other difference between this system and the original is that there is no definitive 'end point', other than losing it all on an unfortunate spin. Therefore if you want to look to keep your winnings, you should set point where you will no longer double the size of your bets, and return to betting into your favoured units.

The Grand Martingale

Another variation of the popular Martingale system is the Grand Martingale.

In this particular system, instead of just doubling your bet after a loss, you double your bet and add one unit on top. So if you bet $5 on black and lose, you bet $10 + $5 = $15 on the next spin. If you were to lose this spin, you would bet $30 +$5 on the next.

This system results in bigger wins after a loss, so you are left with more money in your roll when your numbers (or colours) come in. However, bets can escalate pretty quickly through this method, and so it won't be too long before you find yourself hitting the betting limit or using up all of your starting amount if you hit a few unlucky spins.

So basically, the Grand Martingale systems raises the stakes as well as the risk.

The Cuban Betting System

The cuban betting system is a basic system that involves betting equal units on black and on the third row. This is because there are 8 red numbers and 4 black number on this particular row.

This means that you will win one unit if a red number comes up on the third row (2:1), but stand a good chance of making your money back if you do not hit a number in this row, as there are more black numbers across the rest of the table.

Again, this seems to make perfect sense, but unfortunately you are still going to end up losing more than you win. Close, but no cigar. (Sorry, I couldn't miss out on that prime opportunity).
