# Martingale Roulette System

The most widely spread roulette playing strategy that players are using to increase their chances of winning is the Martingale roulette system. This is a quite simple strategy in which you double up your bets with every loss, till the point when you win. Then you go back to the original bet.

## How it looks like

For example, you start playing by placing a €1 bet on black. If you lose, you increase your next bet to €2. If you lose again, you increase it to €4 and so on, until you win. After getting your win, you go back to the original amount you have bet, that is €1. This system doesn’t refer only to betting on red or on black, but the choice is up to you.

Martingale roulette strategy is mostly used on the even chance bets and these are even/odd, red/black and 1-18/19-36. This strategy is also known as a “double up method”, because you double up your bets when you lose.

The following are the mathematical progressions of the bets you can make combined with the Martingale roulette system.

## Even chance bets

Even chance betting is when you place a bet on either red or black, odd or even or 1-18 or 19-36. The above-mentioned progression is just an example, but in order to work, you have to pay close attention to the rule of doubling up your losses.

**Alternatives to this mathematical progression are the following:**

or

5 – 10 – 20 – 40 – 80 – 160 – 320

Simply stick to doubling up your losses until you win and you will be fine. Before placing your first wager it is recommended that you consider placing a smaller bet because if your starting bet is high, it will become too costly as you lose.

### The Upside To The Martingale

The upside to using this strategy is that it can increase/prolong your winning runs over the short term. For example, if you’re betting on red and you get 3 blacks in a row, then a red, then 4 blacks in a row then another red, you’re losing more bets than you’re winning but you’re still in profit. This is the Martingale prolonging your winning run.### The Downside To The Martingale

Sooner or later you get a long losing run and when this happens one of two things happens (or maybe both)1. Your bank roll is wiped out completely leaving you with no more money to play.

2. You hit the table limits (applied to every roulette game) and they restrict you from doubling your bets higher.

## The Martingale Elsewhere On The Table

Not only with even chance bets, but the Martingale roulette strategy can be used all over the table. The most important thing is to keep up with the correct mathematical progression.

## Dozen And Column Betting

If you are betting on dozens and columns, the following is the mathematical progression you would use:

The good thing about betting on particular dozens and columns is that the progression is a bit lighter. Therefore, it takes a bit longer till you get to the bigger risky bets. On the other hand though, you are winning less on the table.

## Double Column Or Dozen Betting

With this type of betting you bet on two dozens or two columns and the mathematical progression is the following:

More than a half of the table is covered with double column or dozen betting, so it is a good thing. However, the problem is that it takes only a couple of losses and you will either have too high bets or you will hit the table limit.

## Line Bet

A line bet is actually half a dozen bet. In other words, you bet on six numbers in one spin. The mathematical progression of a line bet is the following:

## Corner Bet

A corner bet is a four number bet on a square of numbers (also known as square bet). For instance, you can place a bet on numbers 1, 2, 4 and 5. The following is the progression:

## Three Number Bet

There are different types of three number bets. You can make an individual street bet, which is betting on 1, 2, and 3 or betting on 34, 35 and 36, or you can either bet on 0, 1 and 2 or 0, 2 and 3. The mathematical progression of these types of three number bets combined with the Martingale roulette system is as follows:

## Split Bet

A split bet or a two number bet is when you bet on the line that separates two numbers. The progression this betting is as follows:

## Single Number

As the name itself says, this type of bet is when you place a bet on one number. An important thing to note is that placing such straight bet is very risky and it can become too costly if you are betting on a number that isn’t coming up.

## Conclusion

To sum things up, carefully read and try out all the different progressions for the Martingale roulette system. As mentioned above, you should have in mind that you can play for a long period of time without hitting and when this happens your bankroll may be wiped out or you may hit the table limit.

Generally speaking, it is best that you set up a stop loss limit in the progression for yourself and walk away with your earnings. For instance, if you are betting on odds or even, stop when you bet 32 and lose. This wills stop you from playing and betting more, because, otherwise, you might suffer greatly.
