What is a roulette system?
Theoreticallya roulette system or strategy, in order to be considered complete, consists of a bet selection and a money management plan. However in everyday communication system is any good idea, with specific rules about how to attack roulette.
The web is flooded with systems. Bad, super complicated, poorly described or naive systems. Random strategies without even a hint at an explanation of the underlining idea. Before studying a roulette system ask yourself: WHY is this supposed to work? What kind of physical or mathematical or probabilistic or empirical insight does it take advantage of? What is the logic behind it? Before spending your precious time ask yourself WHY?
Here you will find a great collection of strategies that range from classic and well known progressions like the Martingale to almost unknown systems like the Hollandish, to completely original ideas like the Kavouras Bet, to very esoteric approaches like Positional roulette. Simply put, the best 9 roulette systems.
Do not see these systems as ready made recipes to riches. Read them carefully, understand the ideas they are based on, then try to modify them, try to build on them, adapt them to your personal style and requirements. Above anything else, this is food for thought and inspiration for ingenuity. Because nothing beats the feeling of beating roulette with YOUR system. You see, for some of us roulette is not only about the money. It is maybe more about facing an incredible intellectual challenge. A way to show your worth – first of all to yourself.

Jack Kennedy’s roulette system explained (?) with images, examples and long excerpts from his book “Square Ro-Let”.
