The principle of the martingale in roulette is to play a simple chance (Red-Black / Even-Odd, etc.) until that chance arrives. By doubling your bet with each lost shot, the idea is to win your starting bet.
Example 1: 10 € Bet: Red,Draw: Red,Win: 20 € – bet 10 € = 10 €
Example 2: 10 € Bet: Red, Draw: Black, Loss: 10 €
20 € Bet: Red, Draw: Black, Loss: 20 € +10 € (1st bet) = 30 €
40 € Bet: Red, Draw: Red, Win: 80 € – 40 € (bet) – 30 € (cumulative loss) = 10 €
CAN WE WIN AT ROULETTE WITH THE MARTINGALE?
The question is not whether it is possible to win with the martingale on roulette, the question is when?
Indeed, earning money every day in roulette is to have a minimum of luck by the time you arrive on roulette. In other words, the only time you lose with martingale is when a color repeats itself so many times that you exhaust your Bankroll.
If for example you have 1000 € and you start with 10 €, you will not be able to play the7th round of roulette if you have lost 6 times in a row… It is therefore a question of “arriving” on roulette at the right time…
THE PROBABILITIES OF THE MARTINGALE WITH ROULETTE
Not to mention the RNG casters, when a “real” dealer throws the ball and spins the wheel, the probability that the ball stops on a red number, for example, will always be the same with each new one thrown. Here 18/37, or 48.65%… 18 red draws against 36 digits in all and the 0.
So you have practically one chance in two to win (and therefore lose) with each new round, even if a color is out five or six times in a row…
Chance will do the rest, the Casino de Monte Carlo and its 26 consecutive draws on black numbers (1913) is a model of the genre. Roulette is a game of luck, just don’t miss it…
Using a roulette martingale can still make you a little money by observing a few simple rules.
- You must set yourself an amount to win and stop when the sum is earned. “It’s my lucky day”, “Today I win the double!”, all these sentences are to be banned… the wrong series can cross your game at any time, leave when you win!
- Set a maximum of consecutive losing rounds, and get out of the game even if you feel like it’s in the next round that the color will fall!
- Wait for a long series of a color to enter, even if once again it is mostly psychological… and not mathematical … but many players feel more comfortable… roulette must remain a pleasure, so why not!
- Divide your forces by playing no longer 10 € basic on red for example but 5 € on red and 5 € on pair. If a bad series presents itself you lose half as much while you win (on the other simple chance). You can also bet 3 € on a color, 3 € on Even or Odd, 3 € on Lack or Pass … and 1 € on the 0, you never know!
