How useful is the Fibonacci system in roulette?

Roulette is one of the most thrilling casino games you can play, with the unpredictability and excitement that it generates. For some players, a carefree approach is best, with random numbers chosen depending on how you feel, whilst others will take a more considered view of the game.

They may be the sort of players to use a strategy. And, here we will give you the lowdown on the Fibonacci system, which has proven popular with many players over the years.

What is the Fibonacci system?

The Fibonacci system is actually a simple mathematics theory, where you start with one and add the next two numbers together to make the next number in the sequence. It works out in the following way:

1 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 13 – 21 – 34 – 55 – 89 – 144

It’s fairly simple to follow, although adding the numbers will get harder the longer you go! It’s also worth pointing out that you don’t have to start with ‘1’. You can begin with any number you like, but you must always stick to the same pattern.

The way this is applied to roulette is simple, you work your way through the sequence until you get a winner. However, it doesn’t always mean you will end up in profit.

Firstly, as with most of the roulette strategies, you must bet on the outcomes with near 50% possibilities, such as black or red, odd or even and 1-18 or 19-36. Then, you can begin.

Obviously, if you win from your first bet, you’re in profit. If you win on your second or third bet, you break even. However, from your fourth bet onwards, even a win would result in an overall loss, which might make the system sound pointless.

Yet, once you win further down the sequence, you go back two spaces and this must be repeated throughout. Eventually, should you get back to your initial stake, you will be in profit by that amount.
