The Labouchere roulette system for bet management

I’m going to talk a little bit about another famous free roulette system known as the Labouchere strategy. This is another one of those types of betting systems like the Martingale, Parlay and D’Alembert, which are all free to use and represent some pattern or style used in betting. First off, this is a negative progression type of strategy, but it is much more conservative and safer than the Martingale.

The characteristics of this system can be complex and you might want to bring a piece of paper or something in order to keep track. The Labouchere uses series of numbers that you need to keep track of. For instance, you can start off with the numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. Each number will represent the number of chips you will bet on the table.

When you make your first bet, you will just need to add the numbers on both sides of the series or 1+5 = 6  chips. Note that you can write down the numbers in the series in any order. If you win this bet, you will cross off the 1 and 5 from the list of numbers and you will be left with 2, 3 and 4. Although if you lose the bet, you have to add the number 6 to the end of the original series so that you now have: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.

So you just continue doing this until all the numbers are crossed off as in a type of cycle. This is great bankroll management if you want to walk into a casino and start playing roulette or any other game. Basically you can set up a series before you even play the game and mentally make a decision to walk out with a profit when all the numbers are cross out. That way you don’t stay in the game too long and lose against the house edge. The only thing dangerous about this system happens when you start losing a lot. Then you start adding large numbers to the end of the series and each bet becomes larger. Still, this is an interesting way of playing and many people swear that this is a winning roulette system, at least in helping you walk away with profits at the right time.
