Labouchere roulette system

Labouchere roulette

This is one of the most interesting tricks to win at roulette to apply in this game. This is also known as the cancellation method. It is a system that should be studied very well since it is different from the previous ones mentioned.

To get to know it better, we will divide it into several steps:

  • The first thing we must do is set a goal, the amount we want to win. In our example we will place €50.
  • We must divide that figure into several small amounts, you do this as you wish. In this case, we will divide it as follows: 5, 5, 6, 6, 7, 8, 8, 5. In total, that adds up to the €50 that we have as a goal. As we mentioned you can divide it as you like.
  • Then you will place your first bet by adding the number of the two extremes of the division. In this case the sum would be 5 + 5 = €10. You take that figure and bet it.

On winning the bet, the two 5’s at the end of the division must be crossed out. The next bet in this case would be 5 + 8 = €13. You are going to carry out this same procedure until you cross out all the numbers in the division. By doing the latter, you will be able to obtain the goal that you set for yourself as a profit.

In case you lose in one of the rounds you must add the amount of the bet to your list. That is, if in the previous case: 5 + 8 = €13 you lose, you must add that 13 to the division. This would look like this: 5, 6, 6, 7, 8, 8, 13. You must continue betting until you have no number left.

It is an easy system to learn, but you must be patient when applying it. If you get a string of losses, the number will increase and you will spend more time playing.



As in the previous ones, the Labouchere system also has its version in reverse. It is less aggressive than normal. This can be used to increase our earnings faster. However, it is mainly used to control losses and we will show you how. It can be said that it is a roulette strategy with medium risk.

Being the other way around, the goal that we will set will not be how much we want to earn. On this occasion, the maximum of what we are willing to lose will be placed. Better let’s put an example to see it more easily: our loss limit will be €30. Then we will do the same procedure as the normal one, we will divide that figure into several. Remember that we can divide it the way we want, ours will be: (5, 10, 10, 5). All this added will give the €30 that we have as a goal.

We carry out the same procedure, we take the two extremes 5 + 5= €10. If we win the bet, instead of removing the extremes, we add the bet number. The sequence would now look like this: (5, 10, 10, 5, 10). The numbers in the list will be removed when you lose in the bet. We continue with the example: now we would add 5 + 10 = €15 (you lose). We remove those numbers from the list and we are left with: (10, 10, 5).

So, crossing off the numbers when losing means that once you run out of them you will have reached your loss limit. As we mentioned at the beginning, it is a less aggressive strategy as you have seen. Although you can make profits as in all, it is designed to control losses.
