Most Popular Roulette Strategies

Roulette is an exciting game of chance that’s played and enjoyed by gamblers around the world. Even though it is a game of chance, many people have looked for ways to try to increase their chances of winning, regardless of whether they’re playing roulette at a real casino, an RNG-based online roulette game, or live roulette online. Join us as we unpack three of the most popular betting systems people use to try to increase their wins in roulette.

The 1326 System

In a nutshell, this betting system requires the player to increase their bet by a specific amount every time they win. If you lose, you reset and go back to the beginning of the strategy. Each phase of betting requires you to bet a different multiple of a minimum wager. This may sound confusing, so let’s look at an example.

First, you decide on what a single unit wager is worth. This could be £2, £20, or even £200. Hypothetically speaking, let’s say it’s £1. Here’s how a game might play out using this system:

  • First phase of betting: You must wager one unit, or as we’ve defined for this example, £1. If you lose, you start at the beginning and must wager £1 again. However, if you win the first round of the system, you move on to the second phase. 
  • Second phase of betting: The second phase requires three units of your wager, so your second bet is now £3. If you lose here, you’ll have lost £2. However, if you win, you’ll have won £4 and will move on to the third phase.

  • Third phase of betting: In the third phase of betting, you have to wager two units of your minimum bet, or in this case, £2. If you lose here, you’ll still have made a profit of £2. However, if you win, you’re now sitting on total winnings of £6 and will move on to the last phase of betting.

  • Fourth phase of betting: In the fourth and final phase of this betting system, you must wager six units, or, as you may have already guessed, £6. If you lose, you break even, but if you win, you’ll have won a total of £12.

In this system, ideally, a player would make it all the way to the fourth round of betting and walk away with a total of 12x their wager. However, it’s possible a player could lose in the third phase and break even, lose in the second phase and lose two units of their wager, or lose in the first phase and lose one unit of their wager and have to start again.

The Fibonacci System

This system is based on Fibonacci numbers, where the next number in a sequence is the sum of the previous two numbers. For example:


This system is applied to even-money bets or any bets that come close to giving you a 50% chance of winning. Placing it on inside bets is a recipe for disaster as the odds for these types of wagers are all over the place.

Where this system differs from the first in our list is that you move up the list of Fibonacci numbers every time you rack up a loss. When you get a win, you move back two numbers in the sequences. The goal of this system is to make it back to one on the Fibonacci system. Here’s an example of how this may play out:

  • Bet £1 – Loss
  • Bet £1 – Loss
  • Bet £2 – Loss
  • Bet £5 – Loss
  • Bet £8 – Loss
  • Bet £13 – Win
  • Bet £5 – Loss
  • Bet £8 – Win
  • Bet £2 – Win
  • Bet £1 – Win

In this example, you bet and lost £22, while you won £24. This doesn’t result in massive profits, but you will still walk away with a small profit if you stick to this system. However, it requires you to be willing to make some deep losses and to play all the way back to the first one in order to benefit from it.

The Martingale System

A person places a bet on a roulette table.

Like the Fibonacci system, the Martingale system uses outside or even money bets. Where it differs, though, is that regardless of whether you win or lose, you always double your next bet. The basic premise behind this wager is even if you lose multiple times in a row, you’ll eventually win and get back what you’ve lost so far. When you do win, you start again at the beginning. For example:

  • Bet £1 – Loss
  • Bet £2 – Loss
  • Bet £4 – Loss
  • Bet £8 – Loss
  • Bet £16 – Loss
  • Bet £32 – Loss
  • Bet £64 – Loss
  • Bet £128 – Loss
  • Bet £256 – Win

In this example, you won £256 and lost £255. You made a profit of £1, and while it may not seem like much, the profit grows as you wager larger and larger amounts. That being said, it is still an incredibly risky strategy that could see you quickly racking up hundreds if not thousands of pounds in losses waiting for that elusive win to come along.

Place your wager and woo Lady Luck

As you can see with the three systems we’ve mentioned above, these betting systems don’t increase your odds of winning with each spin but rather provide a system that will help you break even or possibly take home a profit in the long run. The only way you can hope to increase your odds of winning without spending your own money is with a roulette bonus, and even then, you’ll need to check the terms and conditions to ensure that it’s the best deal for you. 

At the end of the day, roulette truly is a game of chance, and you just have to place your wager and hope for the best.
