Does The Roulette Martingale System Work?

There are many roulette strategies that claim to be able to beat the casino but do any of them actually work? The answer to that is “sometimes they do, sometimes they don’t”. It’s obvious there is a lot of luck involved when playing roulette, but you’ll find that many people play it with certain systems in mind and one of those systems is the Martingale. The Martingale system has been around for years and is used not only when playing roulette, but a lot of other people use the Martingale system during other betting techniques too.

It’s a very simple system, users simply double up on their last stake if it lost so that if the odds were evens, they would not only recover their losses but they would also make a profit. Let’s have a look more closely at what the Martingale system provides its users.


Martingale System

The martingale system has been one of the most popular roulette systems in the world for years now and many people have tried their luck using it, some players have won plenty and others have lost plenty. The whole idea of using the Martingale system is to bet on an even odds selection, such as red or black, odd or even, or 1-18 and 19-36. If the bet loses, you would then double the stake on the next turn and keep doing that until the bet eventually wins. Doing that will give you a profit of the same stake each time you win, but the problem with this system is it is possible to lose so many times in a row and most people end up losing their whole bankroll just for little returns.

Let’s say you are betting with a $1 stake on the ball landing on a red colour and it loses, you will then do $2, then $4, $8, $16, $32, $64, $128, $256, $512, and then $1024, so if you have lost the previous 10 stakes, you are then staking $1024 just for a $1 profit – so there is always a big risk in doing it for very little returns and it requires the user to have a big bankroll to earn any profit from doing it. The problem a lot of people have is walking away after they have won so much, if you are doing this on a daily basis eventually you WILL hit a very bad run and there are reports to suggest that people have lost 13 times in a row and more – so you can see it is very risky.

Not only is it very risky in that sense, but casinos have realised so many people use the Martingale system and they have counteracted the problem by introducing varying table limits so users may not even be able to place $1024 in a single bet which would give them even less chance of winning and more chance of losing their bankroll. They introduced this because they realised if someone had an unlimited amount of money, they could keep doubling their money until they eventually won it back.

In conclusion, if you have the nerve to punt all that money just for $1 returns knowing that the ball could land on a black colour more than 10 times in a row, then yes it can work, but many people have been very unlucky and have lost thousands from doing it. So to answer the question above once again “Does the martingale roulette system work?” then yes it does work, but only to a certain extent and if the casinos tables aren’t limited by small bets.
