# Roulette Techniques

From Sudoku to Monopoly, there are many games involving numbers that are quite enthralling to say the least. However, when it comes to gambling, the game of choice if you like numbers is roulette. Just as with any game that is hard, and as with all hard games strategy is needed. Most strategies in roulette are hugely based on how you place your bets.

The game of roulette is quite simple because you place your bets on where you think the ball is going to fall on. Since you are not allowed to use hard cash in casinos, you can place your chips on the table and hope for the best. The dealer spins the wheel clockwise with a follow up of the ball being rolled on to the wheel counter clockwise. The ball bounces around in a counter clockwise manner, and eventually the wheel and ball come to halt. The ball settles on a numbered pocket on the wheel, to your jubilation or to your anguish.

The first technique we are going look at is the Martingale, which is centered on the even money bet. The even money bet has you placing a wager on 18 of the 36 numbers of roulette. The Martingale technique is where you double your wager after any losing bet, as the law of probability states that the next bet will be a winner, as there is a fifty/fifty chance of winning. With this technique, if you win on the second bet you recoup the amount you lost on the first bet. Also to your benefit you may win a tidy profit of the amount where you started doubling your wager. The technique has not enjoyed a great success rate over time and has had those employing it considerable losses.

Another well known technique is derived from the mathematical Fibonacci sequence and is known as Fibonacci system. Similar to the Martingale technique the Fibonacci system is known are recognized as progressive systems of betting. However, just like Martingale, this technique does not enjoy a great success rate. Another technique is where you split your roulette bankroll to 35 sections for 35 sequential spins, where you bet on a single number throughout. The probability of you winning over 35 spins is 60.7%, which is much more favorable as compared to the other techniques. Well, it is good to employ different strategies, but when it comes to games of chance all you can count on is luck.
