Game system Cuban

Like the roulette itself, the Cuban game system does not require players to learn about higher mathematics. According to the idea of ​​its creators, this strategy should significantly increase the chances of winning due to the features of the roulette game field. The Cuban system is based on the uneven distribution of red and black cells on the roulette table.

The first column contains six red and six black zones. The second column is «contented» with four sectors of red and eight sectors of black. And in the third column there are 4 black areas and eight red areas.

The game system Cuban assumes that betting on the odds of any color or / and on the third column is very beneficial, since in this case the probability theory will be on the player’s side, chances are so great. When you play for odds on colors, the winning ratio is 1 to 1, i.e. the player will get his bet back. But with a bet on the column, the winning ratio will be twice as large, i.е. the player’s bet will double. Thus, the Cuban system may seem like a win-win option, but in fact it is far from the case.

Logical trap

The game system in roulette Cuban often becomes the reason that players fall into a somewhat unusual situation, which can be called a logical trap. This is due to their belief that their used strategy Cuban will be able to minimize or significantly reduce the casino advantage over them. Unfortunately for them, things are completely different. For example, there is a «zero» sector on the roulette wheel, when it falls out, all bets on the gaming table become the property of a gambling establishment. The probability of such an event is very small, but it is, and therefore it must be taken into account. In addition, it is mathematically easy to prove that all winnings under one bet are leveled by a loss at other rates. If we add to this the «zero» factor, then the mathematical expectation of winning will take a negative value.

Therefore, the Cuban roulette game system should be used in a limited number of situations. The best results can be demonstrated in French roulette, where there is no double «zero», as in the American version and there are options that protect the player’s bet when the ball hits the zero cell. In addition, before applying it, you need to familiarize yourself with detailed mathematical calculations, which will make it possible to apply it more successfully.

Fibonacci Roulette System

If you see the statistics, a great part of players have reached the success because they opt for casino games as online roulette for real money. In fact, they prefer it because of the simplest rules, different types of bets and diversity of winning tactics. Travelling over Internet pages, each gambler is able to find different strategies that promise the big wins. To believe or not is your business but why not to test some of them?

Gambling games exist for a long time. It is not surprising that people always try to find out some tricks or creep holes in order to stay a winner. A great diversity of strategies was invented for achievement of wished goals. Part of them has stayed alive till nowadays. In this article we will notice famous Fibonacci roulette strategy that is simple in comprehension and use.

What are the brass tacks of Fibonacci roulette system?

The general point of Fibonacci roulette betting system is about the bet that you stake on equal chances for instance red/black, even low/odd high in the certain number sequence. If you pay attention to the genesis of Fibonacci strategy for roulette, it was invented in 13 century by brilliant mathematician. He created the genial sequence of numbers that is used not only by fans of online roulette but architectures, artists and mathematicians.

Fibonacci established the general principle of his mathematical sequence: the next member of the row is equal to the sum of 2 previous numbers. If you begin the row with 1, the sequence will be the following: 1, 1, 2 ,3 ,5 ,8 and etc. Such order of numbers is very popular because the proportions of living creatures are built on them. For some moment, one wants to name this row as the main nature law.

During roulette spinning the Fibonacci method applies similarly to the system that supposes the double of the bets. First of all you have to stake on the fields that have equal chances (red/black, even low/odd high). The amount of chips corresponds to number row. Nevertheless, the general idea of reverse Fibonacci roulette system is to that even during loss of several bets you win more!  In the case of winning you have to return back on 1 step and apply bet repeatedly.

The Fibonacci system roulette gives opportunity to play out on 2 lost bets that were made lastly. And only if you win, the next bet allows to get plus. In the case if player decides to apply negative progression, he has to increase the size of the bet after the last bet was defeated. Progression is characterized by geometric level. It means that sum of the bet increases frequently.

How to put knowledge to use Fibonacci roulette betting system?

It is an interesting fact that Fibonacci system was firstly created for increase of bunnies’ population. Of course, no one can think that it can be applied at online casino games. If you want to test it, you have to be patient and accurate. Our advice is to get pen and make some notes about your bets and check how you run with the algorithm.

You regulate the bets according to the Fibonacci sequence. In our article we decide to show some example:

  • We stake on 1 coin. We get failure and note down  -1
  • The next bet is again 1 coin. We lose again and write -2
  • The third bet is 2 coins. There is a failure and we write 1-1-2 (-4 in whole)
  • We make 3 coins bet. We lose and write 1-1-2-3 (-7)
  • At this stage we bet 5 coins and won! Now you have to cross out 2-3 on the paper and leave 1-1 (balance is equal -2)
  • Next bet is 2 coins, We got failure and write 1-1-2 (-4)
  • Now it is a turn for 3 coins. We won and cross out 2 last numbers 1-2 ( balance is – 1)
  • 1 coin and failure. Let’s write 1-1 (-2)
  • Bet 2 coins and there is a winning! It allows crossing out 1-1. It means that our losses are compensated and now we have the base bankroll!
  • Now we have to start from the beginning. Bet 1 coin and won! We don’t write on the paper because our circle is finished. Start again and write down the new gaming period. Moreover, we won 1 coin – it is good enough!

From our example you will see that Fibonacci betting method is useful if you are able to stay in the game as much as it is possible. We repeat again that the basic feature of that system is a chance to play with small bankroll but simultaneously you can wait for sizeable winnings. In our case we can win 1 coin after 10 rounds.

Certainly we don’t want to say that Fibonacci roulette method is insignificant one for lovers of online roulette game. You have a right to increase bets in order to win more, but do not forget the rule: the more you bet the more you lose. Don’t even wait that present roulette method will make you a millionaire. Just enjoy the game and hope for lucky scenario!

The word «roulette» is french for «small wheel». The original roulette game was also known as «French Roulette» and it literally took over the European gambling scene in the early 18th century. Today almost all French Roulette tables around the world have been replaced by a European version of the American Roulette.

The American and the European roulette table layouts are practically the same, the main difference is that the European table has one zero position (0) and the American table has two zero positions (0, 00). The other major difference is the sequence of the numbers on the roulette wheel. They are totally different.

The French roulette too has one zero only, but the table layout is slightly different and wider (see picture of table layout below), and there are no individual coloured chips for the players, cash chips are used. Also, a stick is used by the dealer and stickman to announce the winning number, to collect the chips from the table and to pay the winners, which makes the game slower than the American version.

In the American and European roulette individual coloured chips are used for each player and after the outcome the losing chips are collected from the table by hand and the winnings are paid by hand. Play is much faster than the French roulette.

In French casinos «American Roulette» means a roulette game with double zeros (0, 00 — on the table layout and on the wheel), the same as used in the USA. The American roulette with one zero (or the European version) is referred to as English Roulette to distinguish it from the double-zero American Roulette and to emphasize that it has one zero only (as used in the UK).

However, in many countries (including the UK) the single-zero European roulette is called American Roulette to distinguish it from the French roulette table layout and for the manner the game is played. In some African countries they call it ‘Roulette with French numeration on American table’.

To sum up:

  • American Roulette can have a single zero or a double zero, but the manner it is played is the same for both, and play is faster than French Roulette. Apart from the zero positions, the table layout is the same. The other major difference is in the roulette wheel, the sequence of the numbers on the wheel is totally different.
  • European Roulette, a term mostly used in the USA, is roulette with a single zero regardless of the table layout, could refer to either the American Roulette with a single zero or to the French Roulette as both use the same type of roulette wheel with the same sequence of numbers.
  • French Roulette is known everywhere as French Roulette, has a single zero, a wide table layout and have Stickmen that handle the chips.
  • American Roulette in USA casinos and in French casinos is referred to the American Roulette with double zeros (0, 00).
  • American Roulette in non-US and non-French casinos (for example: in United Kingdom casinos) is referred to the American Roulette with a single zero. In some European casinos the American single zero roulette is called Fair Roulette.
  • English Roulette, a term commonly used in French casinos, is referred to the American Roulette with a single zero, as used in United Kingdom casinos.

French roulette table layout

(The odds and payouts are as above)

Inside bets:
A — 1 number, Straight up.
B — 2 numbers, Split.
C — 3 numbers with 0 and 3 Line.
D — 4 numbers with 0 and 4 Corner.
E — 6 numbers, 6 Line.

Outside bets:
F — 12 numbers, Column.
G — 12 numbers, Dozen.
H — Manque/Passe, 1-18/19-36 (Low/High).
I — Pair/Unpair (Even/Odd).
J — Noir/Rouge (Black/Red).

Finales — A type of group bets on numbers ending with the same digit. Examples:


  • Final 7 means bet on the numbers 7, 17 and 27 straight up (three chips).
  • Final 2 means bet on the numbers 2, 12, 22 and 32 straight up (four chips).
  • Final 2-5 means split bets on the numbers 2/5, 12/15, 22/25 and 32/35 (four chips).


The table layout on the French version of roulette is different from the American style roulette table shown above. The main difference is in the position of the side bets (outside bets). The side bets on the French table are split in two and run along both sides of the table layout. Each side bet is given its French name and sometimes also its English translation underneath.

Roulette Announced Bets or Call Bets (Used in French roulette tables and in some European casinos with single-zero wheel roulette tables. Common in most UK casinos with single-zero wheel American style roulette tables.)

These bets consist of a group of numbers and there are 5 types:

Number Neighbours bet/Neighbors bet (Voisin du Nombre): 5 chips bet on a number which covers the number itself and the two numbers on either side of it on the roulette wheel.

Zero Neighbours bet (Voisins du Zero): 9 chips bet covers Zero plus seven numbers on right, and nine numbers on left, 0/2/3 + 25/26/28/29, each with 2 chips, 4/7 + 12/15 + 18/21 + 19/22 + 32/35, each with 1 chip.

A Third section of the Wheel bet (Tiers du Cylindre): 6 chips split bets cover numbers from the 33 to the 27 on the roulette wheel, 5/8 + 10/11 + 13/16 + 23/24 + 27/30 + 33/36, each with 1 chip.

Full Orphans bet (Orphelin Plein): 8 chips bet covers 0 + 6 + 9 + 14 + 17 + 20 + 31 + 34, each with 1 chip.

Orphans Split bet (Orphelin Cheval): 5 chips bet covers numbers 6/9 + 14/17 + 17/20 + 31/34, each with 1 chip split bets, and number 1 with 1 chip bet.

Roulite or Roulight table layout

Roulite or Roulight is the modern variety of Roulette. A table game that has been developed in the first instance by specialists at the Wiesbaden Casino, Wiesbaden, Germany.

The game is dynamic and very fast. Players, who like to play sectors and neighbours love it. Bets can only be placed on full numbers (staight up), on two connected numbers (split), neighbours of numbers and sections of the wheel. No outside bets.

La Boule table layout and wheel

Boule or La Boule is a simple and fast game that is similar to Roulette, popular in French casinos and can now be played online.

The game features a table and a wheel with only 9 numbers and 3 different colours. The wheel is spun and a small rubber ball bounces around the wheel before settling into one of the coloured holes to determine the outcome.

Betting will be familiar to Roulette players with the table layout providing a range of betting options. Players can place a bet on Red or Black, Odd or Even, High or Low, or on individual numbers of the wheel.

The number 5, coloured yellow, plays in a similar way to the zero (0 or 00) in normal Roulette. You can bet on it like any other individual number, but if the number 5 is spun then only the bets on 5 win and all other bets lose.

Because there are less numbers in Boule, the chances of spinning a 5 are greater than a zero being spun in normal Roulette, which makes the house edge of La Boule higher than Roulette.

If you bet on the winning number then you are paid 7:1, which is the payout for all bets on individual numbers, and 1:1 on all other bets.

CAMMEGH spread-bet roulette table layout and display board

Spread-bet roulette is a unique CAMMEGH ( concept adding seven roulette side bets, offering the players the chance to win high payouts with one spin of the wheel (also increased house edge to the casino). Seven additional betting circles are added to the regular table layout, located among the outside bets as shown on the photo below.

How it works: A set of electronic numbers, independent from the roulette wheel numbers, act as a secondary wheel on the electronic billboard display along with a set representing the actual roulette wheel numbers, forming two concentric rings spinning in opposing directions, as shown on the billboard display photo below.

When «no more bets» is announced, the two rings on the display stop, randomly aligning the two sets of numbers. This takes place before the ball on the actual roulette wheel comes to a stop and lands on the winning number.

When the ball stops, the corresponding winning number on the display ring is then paired with its aligning electronic number. The sum of these paired numbers determines the spread-bet result. The billboard display continuously shows the electronic number results alongside the regular roulette number results (see photo below, on the left side of the display).


Roulette Tips

Roulette tips:

For an efficient betting strategy aim to win more money in fewer winning spins.

Take into account probability, but don’t rely on it. Use it to make an approximate assessment of what you could expect on a long run.

If you are influenced by previous results, then learn to bet with the outcome and not against it. You will eventually realize that it makes no difference. If anything, the ‘law of unequal distribution’ will be on your side.

Remember, the two major factors that determine how much you win or lose at roulette are: 1) your luck on the day and 2) deciding when is the best time to quit.

On a very bad day, no sum of wagering money or degree of skill will make you a winner. Don’t persist. Cut your losses early.

Don’t challenge the mathematical advantage of the casino. You cannot eliminate or change it and you don’t need to. It is not your adversary unless you choose to make it that way and you will lose — slowly but surely. It is relatively small considering the sums of money that can be won or lost in a very short space of time. Think of it as a necessary and acceptable contribution or a tax towards paying the cost of the gaming equipment and salaries of the casino personnel. Remember, you pay it if and when you win only.

If you are new to the roulette game, you are probably thinking of the possibility to come up with a mathematical roulette system that excludes luck, but before you attempt at that, consider the next two tips.

Mathematics and gambling don’t mix. In mathematics you know exactly what will happen. Gambling is the exact opposite, you never know what will happen, otherwise it wouldn’t be gambling. If you try to calculate the possibilities of winning mathematically, it is unlikely that you will get anywhere even if there was no casino advantage — no 0, 00.

No system tester has ever produced a conclusive positive result for a roulette system — not once. That’s because the luck factor will always be missing. If you devise your own system, try it out for real in actual play and don’t rely on collected lists of decisions. The free on-line and off-line casino games are useful to carry out preliminary tests. Remember, luck cannot be quantified or spread evenly and recorded lists of decisions will never reoccur again in that order. The probability of a sequence of just four numbers coming up again in the same order is 1/38 x 1/38 x 1/38 x 1/38 = 1/2,085,136. That’s one in two million.

«The stall»: When your numbers stop hitting;  i.e. when you don’t hit for 3 straight rolls, on a 1 dollar minimum table, brake a 5 dollar chip into silver.  Then paint the corners of a number in the middle column;  i.e. place a dollar coin on each corner of black 17.  Take the last coin and place it between the 0,00.
Why would you do this?  you do this when your numbers go cold.  You brake your bet down to the minimum.  You don’t ever want to just sit there without money on the playing field.  You are  still playing 11 numbers per roll.  It keeps you working.  You can play out the cold spell till your numbers come back.  This works out great when you know when to stop.  «The stall» should be used only 4 to 5 consecutive rolls.  Then go back to playing your regular numbers.  It’s a $20.00 plus a 10 min breathing period.
Good luck, know when to breath. — The funke grifter

Don’t bet against yourself. If you place more than one number, play them in a manner where it’s possible to win them all if the right number is hit. — Anon

There are three human emotions that you should not take into the casino. Fear. Stupidity. And Greed. Each of these is your own personal disadvantage without even taking into account the casinos advantage. — LuckyGirl


Roulette Rules

Rules and how to play Roulette:

Roulette was first played in France back in the 17th century. It is now one of the most popular European gambling games and Monte Carlo in Monaco is a well known and famous casino centre for playing roulette.

The Basics
Players, usually up to eight, play against the House represented by the croupier also called the dealer, who spins the roulette wheel and handles the wagers and payouts. In the European roulette and French roulette version, the wheel has 37 slots representing 36 numbers and one zero. In the USA most roulette wheels have two zeros and therefore 38 slots.

Each player buys-in a different coloured chips so their bets don’t get mixed up. At the end of play, if you won, you exchange back the colorued chips with cash chips. These are special chips with the value amount imprinted on them. There are several denominations in various colours. You then take these chips to the cash desk where they will give you actual cash money in exchange.

To play roulette, you place your bet or bets on numbers (any number including the zero) in the table layout or on the outside, and when everybody at the table had a chance to place their bets, the croupier starts the spin and launches the ball. Just a few moments before the ball is about to drop over the slots, the croupier says ‘no more bets’. From that moment no one is allowed to place — or change — their bets until the ball drops on a slot. Only after the croupier places the dolly on the winning number on the roulette table and clears all the losing bets you can then start placing your new bets while the croupier pays the winners. The winners are those bets that are on or around the number that comes up. Also the bets on the outside of the layout win if the winning number is represented.

The House advantage
On a single zero roulette table the House advantage is 2.7%. On a double zero roulette table it is 5.26% (7.9% on the five-number bet, 0-00-1-2-3). The House advantage is gained by paying the winners a chip or two (or a proportion of it) less than what it should have been if there was no advantage.

The ‘En Prison’ rule
A roulette rule applied to even-money bets only, and by some casinos (not all). When the outcome is zero, some casinos will allow the player to either take back half his/her bet or leave the bet (en prison = in prison) for another roulette spin. In the second case, if the following spin the outcome is again zero, then the whole bet is lost.

The ‘La Partage’ rule
The la partage roulette rule is similar to the en prison rule, only in this case the player loses half the bet and does not have the option of leaving the bet en prison for another spin. This refers to the ‘outside’ even-money bets Red/Black, High/Low, Odd/Even and applies when the outcome is zero. Both the La Partage and the En Prison roulette rules essentially cut the casino edge on the ‘even-money bets’ in half. So a bet on Red on a single-zero roulette table with the la partage rule or the en prison rule has a 1.35% House edge and one on a double-zero roulette table has a House edge of 2.63%.

The payouts
A bet on one number only, called a straight-up bet, pays 35 to 1. (You collect 36. With no House advantage you should collect 37 (38 in the USA on double zero roulette wheels).
A two-number bet, called split bet, pays 17 to 1.
A three-number bet, called street bet, pays 11 to 1.
A four-number bet, called corner bet, pays 8 to 1.
A six-number bet, pays 5 to 1.
A bet on the outside dozen or column, pays 2 to 1.
A bet on the outside even money bets, pays 1 to 1.

Object of the game
To win at roulette the player needs to predict where the ball will land after each spin. This is by no means easy. In fact, luck plays an important part in this game. Some players go with the winning numbers calling them ‘hot’ numbers and therefore likely to come up more times. Others see which numbers did not come up for some time and bet on them believing that their turn is now due. Some players bet on many numbers to increase their chances of winning at every spin, but this way the payout is considerably reduced. Other methodical players use specific roulette systems or methods, money management systems, or both.

French roulette rules

The French roulette rules are very much like the European roulette rules. It has the same 37 numbered wheel with one zero but a different table layout for the outside bets. See Table layout.

The player odds in French roulette are the same as in European roulette (only one zero) and better than the odds in American roulette (two zeros). The players loose only 50% of their even-money bets when the outcome is zero, known as the ‘La Partage’ rule.

The object of the game is still the same — to predict which number out of possible 37 the ball will land on. And of course, they speak French. Below are the English and equivalent French terms for the various roulette bets:

Inside bets

  • One number Straight up = En plein
  • Two numbers Split Bet = Cheval
  • Three numbers Street Bet = Transversale
  • Four numbers Corner = Carre
  • Six numbers Line Bet = Sixainne

Outside bets

  • Twelve numbers Column = Colonne
  • Twelve numbers Dozen = Douzaine
  • Red or Black = Rouge, Noir
  • Even or Odd = Pair, Impair
  • Low or High numbers = Manque, Passe

Canasta Roulette

In Costa Rica some casino table games have different names, others have different names and different rules. Roulette in Costa Rica casinos is called «Canasta» and is played with a double-zero layout. However, instead of using a roulette wheel the winning number is selected from a circular wire cage with numbered balls similar to the one used in bingo halls.

California Roulette

The difference between California casinos and Vegas (and other) casinos is the way roulette and craps are played.

In California it is against the rules and regulations to have a roulette wheel that is spun and to have a ball drop decide which number is the winning number on the wheel. It is also against the state rules and regulations to throw dice to decide the outcome of a game.

In 2004, California legalized a form of roulette known as California Roulette. By law, the game must use cards and not slots on the roulette wheel to pick the winning number.

There are at least two variations. In some casinos, the dealer spins a wheel containing 38 cards from 1 to 36, plus 0 and 00, and after betting is closed, stops the wheel; a pointer identifies the winning card, which the dealer removes and shows to the players.

In the Cache Creek casino in northern California, a wheel resembling a traditional roulette wheel is used, but it has only alternating red and black slots with no numbers. As the ball is spinning, the dealer takes cards from a shoe and places two of them face down on the table in red and black rectangles. When the ball lands in a red or black slot, the card in the corresponding rectangle is turned over to reveal the winning number.

Did you know?

In every casino it is customary that the croupier starts the first round/spin of the day with the ball lying in the number slot of the date of that day. This obviously excludes the numbers 32, 33, 34, 35, 36 and 0.
