Everyone that plays roulette ought to be using a strategy of some kind rather than just placing random bets all over the table. Before we start digging into different strategies that you can use, let’s be clear on a few things.
No strategy can win all the time, not any of the ones below and certainly not any of the “Guaranteed to win” strategies that you find on the web, this is all just nonsense.
There are actually two sides to proper roulette strategy, the mathematical side and the bet selection side. The maths basically dictates how much you will bet on each spin, for example doubling your bets after a loss until you win.
Bet selection is deciding where you’re actually going to be placing your bets. This may be a certain combination of bets or it maybe betting on a certain part of the table when it’s slept for a few spins even though this is regarded as Gambler’s Fallacy. We will start out by speaking about a few of the mathematical systems that you can use and then we will move onto bet selection.

The Paroli System – This is a positive progression system that you can use which basically means that you double your bets after a win rather than a loss. This page is very detailed and contains everything you need to know about using the Paroli System.
