Reverse D’alembert Roulette system

D’Alembert-RouletteMany of the strategies out there for winning at roulette can work as both positive or negative progression systems. With negative progression systems, the size of your bet increases whenever you lose, and with the reverse of one, you will increase the size of your bet when you win. Such is the case with the Reverse D’Alembert Roulette strategy.

About the Traditional D’Alembert Roulette

If you’d like to read about the classic D’Alembert Roulette system, you can check out our article on the subject, but we’ll begin with a quick review of how it works before we discuss the Reverse D’Alembert Roulette system.

With the traditional D’Alembert Roulette, you place bets on the reds, blacks, highs, lows, evens or odds–the even money outside bets. Every time that you lose, you increase your bet by one unit. The concept behind the strategy is that when your wins equal you losses, you will profit to the tune of the number of wins that you have racked up. Problems arise when you end up on a losing streak that outweighs your number of wins. Then, you can find yourself quickly in the proverbial hole.

How the Reverse D’Alembert Roulette Strategy Works

With the Reverse D’Alembert Roulette system, you will do the exact opposite of the traditional system. You will raise your bet by a unit when you win and lower it by a unit when you lose.

For this example, we will make one unit equal to $1:

  1. You bet $5 and win.
  1. You increase your bet by 1 unit or $1. You bet $6 and win.
  1. You increase your bet by 1 unit or $1. You bet $7 and lose.
  1. You decrease your bet by 1 unit or $1. You bet $6 and lose.
  1. You decrease your bet by 1 unit or $1. You bet $5 and win.
  1. You increase your bet by 1 unit or $1. You bet $6 and win.
  1. You increase your bet by 1 unit or $1. You bet $5 and lose.

At the end of this progression, you have an equal number of wins and losses, but when you add everything up, you are down $5.

Let’s take a look at what happens if you have a good winning streak. 

  1. You bet $5 and win.
  1. You increase your bet by 1 unit or $1. You bet $6 and win.
  1. You increase your bet by 1 unit or $1. You bet $7 and win.
  1. You increase your bet by 1 unit or $1. You bet $8 and lose.
  1. You decrease your bet by 1 unit or $1. You bet $7 and win.
  1. You increase your bet by 1 unit or $1. You bet $8 and win.
  1. You increase your bet by 1 unit or $1. You bet $9 and lose.
  1. You decrease your bet by 1 unit or $1. You bet $8 and win.
  1. You increase your bet by 1 unit or $1. You bet $9 and win.

In this case, you had far more wins than losses and you managed to profit by $33. Of course, streaks like this may not always happen. Depending on your luck, the reverse D’Alembert system may or may not be profitable at any given time. That’s why it’s important to go into the game with maximum win and loss amounts in mind whether you’re at a land-based casino or playing roulette online.
