The favourite dozen strategy for the roulette
To implement the favourite dozen strategy for the roulette the player needs to have 40 tokens of the same amount. The amount of each of these tokens should be decided by the player himself, based on their financial possibilities and the risk of losing them. Important note before choosing the amount is the limit of each table. It’s necessary that the amount is lower than the limit of the tables. For example, if you have chosen an amount of $100 for one token, it’s preferred that you select a table that has a limit from $100. This allows you to get a few more advantages of the “favourite dozen” system of the roulette game.
The favourite dozen strategy in action
This strategy is based on hot and cold numbers. If you are playing a game of live roulette, it’s preferred that you analyse the frequency of hitting one of the tree dozens of this specific dealer. We take a look at the latest number of the result (except 0) and try to identify the dozen that has been the frequent result of the last nine spins (the launch of the ball). If the situation occurs where in the last 9 spins resulted in 2 same dozens four times you have to focus on the last of them. If the ball lands three times on each of the dozens we are waiting for one more spin and places the bet on the precipitated. This is exactly the dozen that will be our favourite to use this strategy.
The bet goes as follows
- Until the first hit of our favourite dozen
- Not more than three spins in case we don’t get our hit
- Re-analyse the last nine spins and restart the system in case both of these situations occur
Adjusting the size of the bets
- The first six times we increase the bets as follows: 1-1-1-2-3-4. That means that we place the token on the first, the second and the third spin. If we lose three times we increase it to 2, then 3 and 4.
- If we lose all six of our spins, the purpose of the amount of the bet is:
- If we lose 12 to 24 coins, we have to divide our negative by four and round up according to the rules of mathematics. For example: if we lose 20 tokens, our rate will be equal to 5 tokens (20/4).
- If we lose from 0 to 11 tokens, we need to share our negative three and round it up to obtain the amount of tokens for the next bet. For example: losing 9 tokens will make our rate equal to 3 (9/3)
- If we lose 25 to 40 tokens, to get the next bet, we divide by negative 5 and round it up.
Important note: If we’re in a situation where we lose 12 tokens or more, then the system isn’t being played 3 times but the amount of times until we reach the desired result of 0 or +1. Only in this situation we analyse 9 spins and identify a new favourite dozen for the next bet.
