# Roulette Strategy

It is a proven fact that roulette systems that rely on probability have failed to produce consistent successful results. At roulette, each spin is a new spin and the outcome is never determined by prior spins. Therefore, the probability for a possible outcome is the same for each spin of the roulette wheel and a probability advantage cannot be predicted.

After eight successive Blacks, a Black is as likely to come as a Red. The roulette wheel has no memory and it does not remember what it just did. This is what many gamblers find hard to believe. This misconception has been around for many years and will probably be around for as many more years. It is known as the notorious gambler’s fallacy.

In theory, roulette may be looked at as a game of probability and that the casino advantage of 5.26% with a double zero wheel makes the player a definite loser. In practice, as far as the player is concerned, roulette is a game of luck and the player has a chance to win.

By far the two major factors that determine how much you win or lose are your luck on that day and deciding when is the best time to quit. Therefore, for a roulette system to have a degree of success it has to be linked to luck and tell you exactly when to quit. Bearing this in mind, here are a couple of popular systems which some punters have found useful in the past.

## Red/Black System

The Red/Black system is a form of Martingale (double up on successive bets) system and is one of the better known roulette systems around. Your bets for this system are on either red or black, with your pay out 1 to 1 (i.e. double your money for a win). It is worth bearing in mind that your chances of winning each bet are just under 50/50 (remember the 0 and 00 that gives the casino its advantage).
