Roulette is one of the most interesting and exciting games of chance. The game gained its popularity by offering high payouts. Players love playing roulette to relax, have fun and try their luck!

It seems to be easy to beat roulette and win big but it is not true. Roulette is a pure game of luck with particularly no opportunity to calculate the future outcomes (not taking into account the biased roulette wheel). It is a common knowledge that every spin of roulette wheel is an independent event that has no influence on the next outcomes. However, during the course of roulette game development, many roulette betting systems appeared. One of the most popular and widely used is Labouchere system.

Labouchere betting system

Many players worldwide know Martingale roulette strategy as it is the oldest one. But this strategy is quite risky and rarely useful on practice. That is why new and improved betting systems have been created.

Labouchere betting strategy can be used for even-money bets such as black or red, even or odd and big or small. Labouchere system main idea is to choose the amount a player wishes to win when playing roulette. After doing that, this sum has to be divided into a string of positive numbers. The sum of these numbers should equal the winning amount. It is not complicated if consider the example:

For instance, a player chooses $200 as a winning sum in roulette. This sum has to be divided into various numbers on condition they equal to $200 in total. So, for example, the numbers can be $10, $20 $30, $40, $40, $30, $20, $10. They equal to $200 in sum and it is good. The next important step is to understand the principle of placing bets according to Labouchere system. The amount of the first bet is calculated by adding the first and the last number in a row, in our case it is $10 + $10 = $20. The bet is placed and if a player wins, these two numbers have to be crossed out of the row. If not, the amount of the bet has to be added at the end of the row, for example, $10, $20 $30, $40, $40, $30, $20, $10 and added $20. This is pretty easy. The system says a player wins the desired sum eventually. BUT! The outcomes in pure game of chance are very hard to predict, so it is not worth trusting any of the betting strategies very much!
