Fibonacci Roulette System

The Fibonacci is an interesting roulette strategy because it’s safer than others such as the Martingale but despite it being safer, there’s still potential for it to win. First thing’s first, the Fibonacci didn’t start out in life as a roulette strategy; it’s a simple Mathematical theory where you start with one and add the two previous numbers together to give you the next number in the sequence. This would be best explained with an example so here is the Fibonacci sequence:

1 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 13 – 21 – 34 – 55 – 89 – 144 – 233 – 377 – 610

One thing to keep in mind is that you don’t have to start at 1 if you don’t want to, so long as you add the previous two numbers together to give you the next number you’re fine, for example 233+377 = 610. It is best to start at one though because it’s obviously safer and it’s always best to start out with any system as safe as you can.

So that’s the sequence of numbers out of the way, now let’s get onto how you actually use it. First of all this is an even chance betting system, it can be used on Red/Black, Odd/Even and 1-18/19-36.

As you can probably guess, you start out by betting one and then you work your way through the Fibonacci sequence until you get a win. Now one thing that should hit you instantly is that the maths does not add up to give you a win every time.

In fact, the further through the Fibonacci sequence you get, the more you lose. You are in profit if you win on the first bet, you break even if you win on the second or third bet, anything after that is a loss and the loss gets bigger and bigger.

At this point you’re probably thinking that the Fibonacci is a waste of time and should be avoided, but don’t be too hasty. Here is how you get the most out of the Fibonacci sequence:

Move your way through the sequence until you get a win, like the example below

  • Bet 1 and lose
  • Bet 1 and lose
  • Bet 2 and lose
  • Bet 3 and lose
  • Bet 5 and lose
  • Bet 8 and lose
  • Bet 13 and lose
  • Bet 21 and lose
  • Bet 34 and win

Now once you’ve bet this 34 and won, you move back two numbers in the sequence and bet that number. So your next bet would be 13. You repeat this process over and over until you’re back at the start of the progression – always move back two numbers in the sequence after a win. Here is an extended example to show you how this works, using the above example to begin with:

  • Bet 1 and lose
  • Bet 1 and lose
  • Bet 2 and lose
  • Bet 3 and lose
  • Bet 5 and lose
  • Bet 8 and lose
  • Bet 13 and lose
  • Bet 21 and lose
  • Bet 34 and win
  • Bet 13 and lose
  • Bet 21 and win
  • Bet 8 and win
  • Bet 3 and lose
  • Bet 5 and win
  • Bet 2 and lose
  • Bet 3 and lose
  • Bet 5 and win
  • Bet 2 and win
  • Bet 1 and win

With the above example, you would have made your way back to the start of the sequence and your profit would have been 1, so in this sense it’s a bit like the Martingale in the fact that once you get back to the start of the sequence, the profit is 1.

The difference between the two is that in the above example, the Fibonacci lost eight bets in a row and the highest bet was 21. If you were using the Martingale, you would have placed a 256 bet and lost so the Fibonacci is unquestionably safer.

Another good thing about the Fibonacci is that in the above example there was 12 losses and 7 wins, but despite this it still came out with a profit. So as you can see, the Fibonacci is one of the better strategies that you can use for even chance betting although it’s obviously not guaranteed to win because nothing is.

Quick Things To Consider When Using The Fibonacci:

At the start of the sequence you can see that there are two number 1s. If you’re moving back in the sequence and you get to the second number 1, bet and win, then move back to the first number one and bet that as well. If you don’t, you will only break even.

Just in case you don’t understand that, here is the second number one, it is in bold: 1 – 1 – 2 – 3

You have to move back to the first number 1 to get your profit, even though moving from the second 1 to the first 1 is only one step back rather than two. That is the only exception to that rule.

Another thing to remember is that it can take a long time to get back to the start of the sequence and during this time you will need to remain patient and stick to the system exactly. If you place the wrong size bet somewhere along the way, the maths will be messed up.

You also need to remember that like all strategies, the Fibonacci is not immune to a long losing run and when this happens you can find yourself in a hole that only a big chunk of luck will pull you out of. For this reason you should set yourself a stop loss limit and stick to it just like you would with any other strategy.

One final thing, using the Fibonacci in the same way as described above (moving back to steps after a loss) is also known as the Whittaker and we also have a full page about it at Whittaker Roulette Strategy. There’s also a Reverse Fibonacci although in our opinion, it’s less effective and more risky than the regular version.
