Roulette Betting Systems

Martingale

That is the most common betting system among roulette players. It requires players to double the bet after each lose and remain the bet after a win. This system is based on the theory which says that is a player plays long enough, it is impossible to lose each bet. This system is effective but very risky. Moreover it requires a player to have big bankroll.

Oscar's Grind

The main principle of this system is that a player should place his bet on even-money unit; if he loses he should make the next bet of the same size. It means that following this system players make their bets in order to gain a profit with every bet.
