The Martingale strategy is one of the best known roulette tricks to try and recoup losses. It involves betting on simple odds (red or black; even/odd; under 18/over 19) which have a payout of 1:1.
This roulette tactic compensates for losses, but after a high bet over several rounds of losses, you are still left with a small profit. This roulette system is simple and understandable for everyone, but it bears the risk that, due to commissioner chance, many rounds of losses can follow one another and you can quickly reach either the table limit or the limit of your own budget.
When betting on a colour, for example, it is quite possible to have more than 40 rounds (or more) without this colour. In this case, you would quickly reach the end of your betting range. Therefore, this system, although so well known, is rather unsuccessful and especially disillusioning for the beginner.
Paroli, another doubling
The Paroli system also works with a doubling on easy chances, but this time in case of a win.
This means that the player starts as usual with a basic bet and then, after a win, leaves the bet and the same amount of winnings on the table as a new bet.
With this roulette trick, you have a fairly low risk, as you only risk your basic bet to begin with. If you are lucky enough to win several times in a row, you can accumulate a nice sum that you can either keep betting or pay out at some point. This decision depends on the player’s willingness to take risks and thus also shows one of the weaknesses of this system, because some players get carried away and continue to risk the entire amount for too long. Another weakness is the fact that many rounds of losses often have to be accepted before a sequence of several wins is reached.
Parlay, a doubling of winnings with a numerical default
Parlay is a betting system that is used in various games such as roulette, blackjack or even sports betting. Here, too, it is a matter of simple chances and doubling of winnings at certain conditions. The basic idea is to always secure a winning amount in between, so that total losses are avoided:
One first determines what basic amount one wants to bet and then at what intervals one doubles or even bets more.
To do this, you write down a series of numbers, for example, 1, 2, 2, 4 is recommended for beginners, where each number stands for the multiplier of the bet.
If you lose, you go back one step in the number line. This row can be extended at will, but then requires a lot of stamina to reach the end of the number row.
If you follow the game plan exactly, this system is very suitable, especially for beginners or unsure players. The biggest weakness here is the fact that the random factor can also result in many losing rounds, which then quickly leads to a strong reduction in winnings.
