The Hawks Roulette System
This is a version of The Martingale really, so play with care. Being a martingale variant, you double your bet size on the roulette spin following a loss, in an attempt to claw losses back an make a small profit on each mini session or leg.
This is a bet played on the even money bets. The Hawk’s Method stipulates that you stick on the same colour (or odd, odd, odd if you are playing even, odd) until you win, and then you switch
The idea is that you are riding your luck that your bet will eventually drop in before you reach the table limits or you are maxed out on your budget.
The best place to play this system is on a European roulette wheel with no 00 pocket, or even better play French roulette with La Partage rule or on a no zero wheel such as the zero house games at Bet Fair (but you’ll find lower table limits at these tables- the casino’s aren’t stupid)!
Test The Hawks Method at Betfair:
Of course, along with the Martingale, there is one fundamental flaw in this theory- and that is the wheel has no memory, so if you see 6 blacks in a row, there is still a 50/50 chance of seeing a black on the 7th spin. The roulette wheel is inanimate! Actually, the odds are slighty lower than 50/50, because the wheel has a zero pocket which comes up 2.6 times in every 100, on average.
If you use this system to stick to your guns and play methodically, then try it out by all means. Just be aware of it weaknesses, and understand that your bets can ramp up quickly in The Martingale and its variants. Play with a strict budget and stop loss and don’t chase losses if the luck is not going your way.
