The Whittaker (sometimes called the Whittacker) is another system that is best used on even chance bets. It’s a similar system to the Labouchere because both of them obtain the next betting amount by looking at previous bets. It’s also very similar to the Fibonacci. In fact, I think it’s fair to say that this system is pretty much identical to the Fibonacci.
With the Whittaker, you wait until you’ve had two losses in a row and then you add those two losses together to give yourself the next betting amount. So you would start out by betting £1 and you would keep betting this amount over and over until you get two losses in a row. Assuming you start with £1, your progression would look like this as the losses add up.
1 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 13 – 21 – 34 – 55 – 89
We have already explained this form of betting strategy in our write up of the Fibonacci system, so to read about that head over to Fibonacci Roulette Strategy.
What we’re going to do on this page is continue talking about the Whittaker/Fibonacci but with our examples we’re going to assume that you’re betting £3 a time to give some variety and to help you understand exactly how it works. To start with, this is what your betting line would look like as the losses add up:
3 – 3 – 6 – 9 – 15 – 24 – 39 – 63 – 102
Here is a very simple example of how this system would work if you started with a £3 bet:
- Bet 3 and lose
- Bet 3 and lose
- Bet 6 and lose
- Bet 9 and lose
- Bet 15 and lose
- Bet 24 and lose
- Bet 39 and win
- Bet 15 and win
- Bet 6 and win
- Bet 3 and win
With the above example, the profit would be £3. As you can see, you move back two steps after every win and you still get a profit and because of this simple fact, you can have more losses than wins and still be in profit.
As with all systems, the Whittaker can become dangerous if you’re betting on red and you get 15 blacks in a row so you should always have a stop loss in mind. As we said higher up, this is a very similar system to the Fibonacci and we already have a very detailed write up on it which you can find at Fibonacci Roulette Strategy.
