Hello Friends! Sorry I have been away for awhile. I have been quite busy with my new business endeavor. I hope all is well with all of you. I decided to post this strategy that I have been using for a while with some pretty good results. This is a strategy that is up to the player on how aggressive or conservative they want to play the game.

The strategy that I have been using is a variation of the

neighbor bet or the five number bet [nofollow]. Instead of playing a 5 number neighbor bet and betting 1 unit on each number, I have decided to play a nine number neighbor bet starting with 1 unit on each number. For example, I will use my personal neighbor bet numbers that I like, but feel free to choose whatever you wish. Unfortunately, here in the United States, most of the roulette games are American Roulette, so I will share what I play on the American Roulette wheel. My favorite number is 00. It was the first number I ever hit on playing roulette when I first started so it holds some sentimental value to me. So the numbers I play are 00, then 1,13,36,24 and 27,10,25,29. I have found that it is easier to hit sections of a wheel than exact numbers. The key to the system is the staking. I bet 1 unit on each of the 9 numbers and follow the sequence that was on pg 165 of the book" Monte Carlo Anecdotes and Systems of Play" . I have attached a PDF file of the book in this studio section for everyone to use whenever they feel like using it. So on pg. 165, It talks about a Paroli betting strategy. I use the Paroli Betting Strategy and incorporate it into the nine number bet.

For example, I start out staking 1 unit on 9 numbers. If I lose, I do the same again. If I lose, I do the same again. If I lose the third time, I stake 2 units on each of the 9 numbers. If we lose again I repeat that same bet. If we lose here, I stake 3 units on each of the 9 numbers. If we lose this bet, I stake 4 units on each number. If we lose here, it is decision time! We have two options.

1.) We can continue on the direct Paroli Progression of staking and go 5, 7, 9, 12,16,.........etc until we hit. That is the aggressive way to play.

2.) Or we can decide to make a ladder system. For instance, the previous sequence was 1,1,1,2,3,4. After we lost of the 4 unit stake, we go back to 1 unit and use the sequence 1,1,2,2,3,4,5 and construct our first rung of the ladder. If we lose all of those, then we construct another "step" in the ladder and play 1,2,2,3,4,5,7. Now in the event that we win...we can chose to play at this sequence until we are in profit, or we can start over from the beginning if we want to be more conservative.

The nice part about this system is that it is all up to each player how they want to play. There are a few decisions that the player must make. There is no one correct way to play it.

I have been doing this for a little while and have done quite well with it . In American Roulette, we expect one of the nine numbers to hit in every 4.2 spins. That is the expectation. So we can devise a way to make a betting sequence that will put us in profit knowing this fact that after the fourth spin at 1 unit we will start losing our bankroll. That is why I decided to combine the Paroli method of staking in the book, with an inside betting strategy.

Please feel free to add any improvements or ideas to this strategy. This is just a rough draft of what I have been working on lately. Good luck to all of you! Cheers!
