Black And Red Roulette Strategy

black and red roulette strategy

The Red and Black strategy is used in the European roulette. The principle of this strategy is to choose a colour to bet on (black or red) and to double the bet every time your guess isn’t correct. This startegy can be used also on other elements of roulette table – odd/even, 1-18/19-36

The Strategy:


1. Bet 1 unit on the red.

2. If a black number or 0 falls out, bet on the red again, but the bet now needs to be 2 units.

3. If a black number or 0 falls out again, make a bet of 4 units on the red.

4. If the red number falls out, you have regained everything you have lost previously and won a unit more.

 When shown in numbers, it looks like this:

If you had 20 Euros at the beginning of the game, 20-1 (the first bet)-2 (the second bet) – 4 (the third bet) + 8 (the winnings) = 21

This system is based on the Martingale’s probability theory. The chances of losing 6 times or more in a row are 2.13%, which is quite a lot. Of course, the casinos make sure that they do not get played upon and have limits of the maximum amount of a bet. This limit is usually 500 Euros.

Advantages Of This Strategy:

  • No roulette strategy is safe and has some risk involved, but in this one the risk is quite small
  • Very profitable strategy

Disadvantages Of This Strategy:

  • High possibility of reaching the table limit (usually 500)

Tips For Bigger Profits

  • It is recommended to play with smaller bets in order for this system to gain profit because then you double the bet more frequently
  •  There are casinos where the minimal bet in roulette is 0.1 Euros, and these are the ones I would recommend to start with. For example, if you have 30 Euros and start with a bet of 0.1 Euros, you will be able to double your bet 8 times, which significantly reduces the chances of you losing.
