If you are looking for a betting system to use when playing roulette, a lot of the systems that you will come across rely heavily on betting on even money shots, or 2-1 shots such as the dozens or column bets on the roulette table. These betting systems tend to have smaller wins for the users and it can sometimes be a grind to make any kind of major profit, especially if you are using a negative progression betting system such as the Martingale betting system.
However, there are some roulette betting systems out there that are to be used on the inside bets, or the single number bets, and if successful they can be far more lucrative than even money bets or 2-1 bets simply because the payout on these bets is 35-1. One of these betting systems is the Single Repeats betting system. The Single Repeats betting system can, in theory, bet used on other bets on the roulette table, but it is best used on the single number bets, and that is how the Single Repeats betting system is recommended to be used.
The idea behind the Single Repeats betting system is simple: in 37 spins of the roulette wheel, not every number will come out, and some numbers will be repeated over the course of those 37 spins. The idea can be extended that over the course of 74 spins, every number is not going to come out twice. In fact, not every number is going to come out once (although it is possible, of course). The system is best used over the course of 37 spins, but if you have deep enough pockets, you can use it in multiples of 37.
It is also advisable to have a pen and a piece of paper at hand when using the Single Repeats betting system to keep track of your progress.
To begin using the Single Repeats betting system, you have to split your bankroll up into units. Normally it is advisable to split your bankroll up into 100 units. However, because the Single Repeats betting system can have a big layout if you do not win in the first few spins, it is best to divide your bankroll up into 1,000 units. So take how much you come to the table with and divide it by 1,000. For example, if you have $100 to play with, 1 unit is worth 10 cents. A $1,000 bankroll has a 1 unit value of $1 when using the Single Repeats betting system.
The first thing you have to do when using the Single Repeats betting system is to sit out the first spin. Once the ball has landed in a number, take note of that number and place a 1 unit bet on it for the next spin. So if you come up to the table and the first number that comes up is 15, your first bet is going to be on 15. Once that spin has finished, you take a note of the number (regardless if you have won or lost) and place a 1 unit bet on each number (if you win, you place a 2 unit bet on that number). So, if the next spin yields 27, your next play would be 1 unit bets on 15 and 27. And if the next spin was 35, your next play is 1 unit bets on 15, 27 and 35. If that spin wins with the ball landing on 15, your next play is a 2 unit bet on 15, and 1 unit bets on 27 and 35. This continues for 37 spins, which could end up costing you over 700 units is you are unlucky enough not to have one repeating number in all that time. However, the theory behind the Single Repeats betting system dictates that you will have several repeating numbers throughout the 37 spins which would hopefully yield a profit.
The long and short of it is that the Single Repeats betting system should only be used by players with deep pockets. If no number repeats for a dozen or more spins, you are going to be out a lot of units, and you will need to see the 37 spins to the end if you are hoping to make any kind of real profit, of which there is no real guarantee, as it could be that every number on the wheel does come out once, and you only ever get 36 units returned to you. Yes, that is statistically unlikely, but it could happen, and even if you only have to wait 15 spins or so, you still need to hit a few repeating numbers to make profit. The Single Repeats betting system is fun, but be careful when using it. However, if you are careful it is one of the more exciting betting systems you can use when playing roulette.PlayRoulette.org » Strategy »
