Studying a betting method for roulette can prove to be a pastime for some enthusiasts, but when it comes to implementing game systems on the field, it is good to be careful to differentiate good game strategies from systems that seem foolproof but that in reality, they are completely fallacious.
Before continuing, it is good to know that the perfect system has not yet been discovered (if who knows if it ever will be!): In no case can the player have a real advantage on the bank when the law of large numbers comes into play. However, there are methods that really allow you to increase your odds of winning in this game.
PLAYING “WITH EQUAL WEIGHT” OR WITH THE “UPRIGHT”
Playing at equal mass means always betting the same number of pieces, regardless of the outcome of the combinations bet. In this way, the difference between winning and losing combinations represents the player’s win or loss by the number of pieces.
Playing with an uppercut (or progression) instead means using a game strategy in which to gradually change the amount of the bet: in the “loss upright” you increase the value of the bet to recover the losing hits, in the “winning upright” instead it is done to try to maximize the winnings.
The concept of progression is based on simple reasoning: playing at equal mass in a game in which the losing sorties are numerically higher than the winning ones, it is impossible to obtain constant winnings because the number of lost pieces is greater than the number of those won. With an upright, on the other hand, we try to recover what has been lost with the blows that have not been successful by betting a higher amount on those with a positive outcome (loss in the upright).
Almost all systems designed for roulette are based precisely on the more or less complex use of progressions.
A GREAT CLASSIC: THE GARCIA SYSTEM
The Garcia method provides a game strategy on simple chances (red/black, even / odd) that looks like an uppercut and is modified during the game according to the situation that comes and creates.
- You choose a simple chance and bet one piece. After a wait shot, the opposite chance is bet (for example, red, a wait shot, black).
- If you win, you start again. In the event of a leak, continue increasing the number of pieces to 3.
- At the next hit in case of winning, you start again. In the event of a leak, the number of pieces is further increased, bringing them to 7.
- A win in one of these three bets allows you to get a profit. If, on the other hand, all three are losers and the player is in the passive position of 11 pieces, the betting strategy changes, going to chase the series of 7.
- At this point, therefore, he divides the liability for the three subsequent chances: 4 pieces, 4 pieces, 3 pieces. We then continue to play in winnings for subsequent hits in search of a series of 7 or more.
- In case of winning and recovery of the losses, it starts from the beginning.
- In the event of a leak, instead, the overdraft is marked (-15 pieces), and it is temporarily set aside, starting the cycle from the beginning.
- When there are still three losses on the interruptions (i.e., the first 3 hits) and a new liability of 11, the new liability is added to the one set aside divided by 3 (for example 9-9-8, i.e., 11 of current liability added to 15 of the previous liability divided by three).
The Garcia system, therefore, has the objective of accumulating winnings on the first hits on interruptions, attempting to recover the losses on the series of 7. The details of this system are easily available in the literature on the subject and also on the web.
