The theory behind these types of systems is to place bets to cover the whole table, so that you have all the numbers covered and you reduce your risk to zero. See details below.
We tested the Cover Whole Table System out at Crazy Vegas- you get €/£/$ 3000 free to play around with, risk free. You keep the winnings
Of course, the name of the system is a complete misnomer, as if you covered the whole table (say you bet on black and red) you would not make any profit (actually you would make a slight loss as remember that there is a zero pocket in roulette- when this comes in you lose. “Doh!” as Monsieur Simpson would say).
But the idea is an interesting one. Is there a way of covering enough of the table so that you minimise your risk of losing?
Here are some of the more popular stratgies we have seen employed:
- Place bets on 2 columns and a colour.
- 3 chips on 1-18 and 2 chips on the 3rd dozen for a 1 chip profit
- 3 chips on the 19-36 & the first dozen- (only loses on 7 numbers (on single 0 roulette).
- Bet 5 units 1st and 2nd column and 1 unit on the four blacks in the third column splits.
- Bet 5 units on the 1st and 2nd column with 1 unit on 4 reds on the 2nd column splits.
- Bet 1 dozen and 1 column at the same time
- Play 35 numbers
While these are all worth testing, the problem with these types of systems is that they also reduce your return on investment. By hedging your bets this way, you are whittling down your profit on each spin- and remember that you will always have to leave some numbers “open” (ie you have not covered them).
When you start digging around, alot of these types of systems have been devised by people who are actually more interested in the mathmatical theory that lies behind them.
Our advice? Test them by all means, but do it on free play first until you feel comfortable about investing any of your hard earned cash on them, and don’t expect a big profit unless you are willing to risk a big enough bankroll.
