The Alembert Roulette Strategy

The Alembert Roulette was developed by the French mathematician and philosopher Jean-Baptiste le Rond d'Alembert and belongs to the category of loss progressions because the stakes are increased in case of loss. Along with the Martingale Roulette and Paroli Roulette strategy, the Alembert strategy belongs to the well known roulette strategies.

In contrast to the Martingale roulette, however, the Alembert Roulette is not going to double the bet stakes in case of loss, but only increases the value of the starting bet. This reduces the risk of going bankrupt with high sums. Nevertheless, the amounts used for longer loss periods or frequent changes between profit and loss, growing very quickly to considerable sums, so that the risk to lose large sums, even with this strategy should not be underestimated.

Generally speaking, that the Alembert Roulette is a roulette strategy that is applied primarily to the Simple Chances. The progression d'Alembert is a roulette betting system that speculats on equalization. If the equalization is going to happen, the player will have a positive balance. It is quite sufficient for the player who plays the Alembert Roulette, to win every second round to make profits in the end.

There exist various strategic options for alembert roulette. It is also possible to increase the stake after a loss and to reduce after a win. Just as it is possible to increase the stake after a win and reduce after a loss.
