Martingale, Ant-Martingale and Pivot Roulette Strategies Explained

The Martingale Roulette strategy is one that is often used, but many argue it’s validity. It’s a very simple strategy based on even simpler mathematics.
It simply says that every time win you bet the amount equal to the initial bet. When you lose you double the amount of your initial bet until you win again. Each time the player loses he/she doubles the amount of the previous bet. This is to make up the money that was lost on previous bets and still make a profit on the current bet. Bets should only be on either evens/odds, red/black or high/low.

The major disadvantage of this system is that a player may go through a very long losing streak. This means that, because the player doubles up on his/her bets each time he/she loses, he/she could end up wagering huge amounts to recover the losses. This makes the Martingale Roulette strategy very dangerous.
The Anti-Martingale strategy works just the opposite. A player doubles is/her wager after each win. When the player loses, the wager reverts back to the initial amount.
The Pivot strategy has been in operation for hundreds of years. It basically says that some roulette wheels are not as random as they should be. Observant players can easily pick up on this.

Because of the unequal distribution law, which the Pivot strategy supports, the ball will land in certain numbered slots more than others. There are 38 numbered slots on the roulette table, meaning that for the ball to land in the same slot the odds are 38-1. However, the Pivot strategy says that the same slot will be the winning slot after 24 spins.
Write down the numbers on which the ball lands over a 38 spins. Look at the number that gets repeated during that time. That is the number to wager on.

Keep betting on the same number for 38 spins. You should, according to the Pivot strategy, win before 38 spins are completed. This means you will make a handy profit within each cycle. Should you only win the 38th spin you reached a tie and should look for another number to wager on. This also applies should the player not have won after 38 spins.
It should be noted that no strategy can guarantee success. Einstein is quoted as having said that the only way to make money with roulette is to steal it when the dealer is not looking.
