Here is a system that was first suggested on our roulette forum by a player going under the name of “19black” (I presume that must be his favourite number).
It’s a basic columns system that goes as follows:
You watch the wheel until the same column comes up three times in a row, one after another. (You’d be suprised how often this happens). As soon as this happens, you start betting on the next round.
You place chips on the other 2 column and run a Triple Martingale progression as a betting profile. 1-3-9, (or multiples thereof depending on your first bet. If it was 2, for example, your betting sequence would run: 2, 6, 18.) The progression stops after the third bet.
The obvious flaw we see in this one, is the usual one in that the wheel has no memory. Each spin of the wheel is a mutually exclusive event, so any strategy that is based on historical events is really only giving you a method to follow and a guide to where to place your bets, rather than increasing your roulette odds at the table.
Having said that, we quite like the way the system pulls out after 3 rounds, as a Triple Martingale can ramp up in somewhat of a scary way. If you think you needed to monitor your heart rate on a standard Martingale progression, you’ll need a full on triple heart bypass with this version- that’s probably why they call it the Triple Martingale.
But on the plus side you are also hedging your bets by going for 2 out of the 3 columns.
Bear in mind though, that you are going to look like a doe eyed labrador that’s just missed lunch if the zero drops in. We’d try this out on short sessions first.
