The Martingale roulette system is also known as a progression roulette system or a doubling-up system, and is one of the most popular systems used by players looking to beat the roulette table. The origins of the system can be dated back over 300 years and became extremely popular in France in the 18th century. This classic system is based on the martingale probability theory introduced by Paul Pierre Levy a French mathematician.
The martingale system itself it fairly simple and the idea of the classic system is to double up the next bet whenever you face a loss. After a win you need to reduce the bet back down to the original bet. This ensures that after every win you have covered any previous net losses.
Now for an example, if you were to bet 10 and lose the bet, you would double your next bet to 20. Then if you were to lose the next bet you would double your bet again to 40. Now you win this next bet and take note of what has happened. You have lost 10+20+40 which equals 70, you won your bet of 40 which brought in 80 overall. Your profit is therefore 10 overall. You would then go back to the beginning and start the system again at a bet of 10.

This system is generally used on the roulette table by betting on red or black and continuing with the same colour until it comes in.
Advanced Martingale Roulette System
The advanced martingale roulette system is a way to increase your winnings quicker if you believe the table is working in your favour. It’s the same principle as the basic system but after a loss you double up your bet and add one to the doubled amount. As a result you will see an increased profit when you win. See the example below for how a sequence may pan out.
5 loss 10+1 loss 22+1 loss 46+1 win 5 …
So as you can see after the win betting 47 you would return 94 which would cover your losses of 5+11+23-47=86 with a profit of 8. These kind of profits don’t seem very much but if you imagine it only takes a couple of minutes to run this sequence. You could potentially run this exact sequence 20 times in an hour which would be a profit of 160 per hour. There are not many jobs that will pay you that for playing at home.
