If you know enough about roulette to play, you will agree with me that this is a negative expectations game with a massive 5.26 house edge and with no realistic or dependable opportunity to alter the odds using a play strategy.

There is no proven system or strategy to win in roulette, so if you see someone advertising one, it is a scam. However, there are a few strategies that you can use to minimize your losses and enjoy the game.

Double Street Quad Strategy

The Double Street quad strategy is a simple technique to set a betting pattern involving placing wagers on double streets with a straight up number and on a corner or quad. This bet covers 17 numbers out of the 36 and you will be wagering 6 chips in a single spin with 2 chips on either of the double streets bet and one at the corner and straight bets. In order for you to understand, I will explain using an example.

First, choose a number, like a 5. The number you choose though shouldn’t be covered in the corner or double street bet. Place a chip on the straight number (5) then choose 2 double streets, like 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 and 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36 then place 2 chips on each of the double streets. Next, find a corner, e.g. 8, 9, 11 and 12 and bet one chip. At this point, you should have bet a total of 6 chips on 17 numbers meaning that you have covered 50% of the numbers on the wheel.

Does it pay off?

The straight up number (5) pays 35 to 1, you will get back 36 chips if the ball lands on it and your win will be 30 chips. If it lands on the double street, which pays 5 to 1, you will win 10 chips because you bet 2 on it and your profit will be 6 and if it lands on the corner or quad bet which pays 8:1 you will have a profit of 3 chips. If the ball lands anywhere else, you lose 6 chips.
