Biarritz strategy (Makarov system)
The Biarritz roulette strategy was offered by Alexandr Makarov. Biarritz is the French resort located at Atlantic coast. In the very core of Makarov system is mathematical method known as Monte-Carlo. The idea of Makarov strategy is extremely simple. You just need to bet the same amount of money on the same figure, nothing else! For example, you make $1 bets on 12. And you continue doing it for 36 next times. Therefore you will keep your money if you win at least once in 37 times. Otherwise you lose $37.
There are 3 possible outcomes:
- 1) You win on 37-th spin and compensate your loses. This means that you keep your money. This is quite good outcome.
- 2) Your betting system brings you winning earlier than on 37th spin. The faster it happens the more you can win.
- 3) The worst scenario is that you didn’t hit needed number in 37 spins. It means that you lost $37. Nothing good to tell the truth.
Probability of this scenario is 36/37, just 0.37%. Therefore your odds of making profits from 37 spins are more than 50%. Thus this is the very good way of increasing your chances.
The classical Biarritz strategy has got additional twist. According to this theory you should also keep some statistics. You need to write down all the results trying to find lucky numbers. Thus you should watch 111 spins (3 full cycles by 37 spins) and find leading numbers. Then you need to place your bets on numbers that appeared more than 3 times. It is interesting that other gamblers say that you should do some observations and change your betting strategy vice-versa. They say that it is a good idea to bet on those numbers that appeared LESS than 3 times during each full cycle (37 spins). Their point is that the numbers will more likely appear during next cycles of the game. Surely such tips do not have anything common with mathematics of theory of probabilities. Roulette machine generates 100% random results. Therefore even if you have seen any particular number appearing 10 times in a row it doesn’t mean that you should bet on this number.
From the other hand you never know what kind of roulette machine you are dealing with. You should remember that roulette machine can be adjusted wrongly. Thus particular numbers can appear more often than the others. But surely such situations don’t happen in online casinos.
It should be noted that the Biarritz system was successfully applied in real life. Famous Hollywood actor Shaun Connery won 30 thousand dollars in one casino in Italy with help of Makarov system.
The Biarritz strategy is a very controversial one. In reality you never know if your will hit needed number even once in 36 times. And if you want to make profit playing roulette you need to hit your winning number more than once per 36 spins. At the same time the Makarov system helps gamblers to stay in the game quite long. And the more time you spend at the roulette table the more fun you can get. The good thing about the Makarov system is that it doesn’t require player to have large bankroll. At the same time the strategy can bring a player a decent net profit.
