In mathematics, the **Fibonacci numbers** are the numbers in the following integer sequence, called the **Fibonacci sequence**, and characterized by the fact that every number in it is the sum of the two preceding ones. This system will provide a player some few percentages extra profit which can be quite interesting playing the game. The game of Roulette is a game of chances and opportunities. Gamble is very important in this game and this systemcan provide a helping hand in order to make some extra money out of it.

Most of the times, the payout range of the online casinos is 97% when playing the game of roulette. For example, of every $100 spent a player will get $97 back and the house will earn $3. This is not that attractive and for that reason some smart men gathered together and figured out a good system in order to beat the house/online casino.

As usual, roulette players want to beat the house or play quits and that is why a lot of winning players choose to play with a system such as the Fibonacci system or the D’ Alembert system. In order to make the most out of the game, players can choose different systems during a play.

## How does the fibonacci numbers work?

Let’s talk about the system itself. The system works as follows: 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,233,275. This seems like there are some numbers randomly picked but that is not true. This system distracted from the ancient Arabic numeric system by Fibonacci. Fibonacci brought this system to Europe and explained its simplicity.

The system works in steps where a player needs to make a step forward when he or she wins and the player needs to take a step back when he or she loses. Here is an example of the Fibonacci system; A player Wagers $1 and wins, next he will wager $2, when he loses this bet he will place a bet of $3. If he also loses this bet he will wager $5 and so on. When a bet is won, a player will go back two steps. So winning a bet means 2 steps back and losing means one forward.

The Fibonacci is an interesting roulette strategy because it’s safer than others such as theMartingale but despite it being safer, there’s still potential for it to win. First thing’s first, the Fibonacci didn’t start out in life as a roulette strategy; it’s a simple Mathematical theory where a player starts with one and add the two previous numbers together to give the next number in the sequence.

This would be best explained with an example so here is the Fibonacci sequence:

1 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 13 – 21 – 34 – 55 – 89 – 144 – 233 – 377 – 610

### Did i have to start with 1 at fibonacci?

One thing to keep in mind is that a player does not have to start at 1 if they don’t want to, so long as they add the previous two numbers together to give the next number it will be fine, for example 233+377 = 610. It is best to start at one though because it’s obviously safer and it’s always best to start out with any system as safe as possible. So that’s the sequence of numbers out of the way, now let’s get onto how players can actually use it. First of all this is an even chance betting system, it can be used on Red/Black, Odd/Even and 1-18/19-36.

As probably guessed, people can start out by betting one and then work a way through the Fibonacci sequence until they get a win. Now one thing that should hit a player instantly is that the maths does not add up to give a player a win every time. In fact, the further through the Fibonacci sequence a player gets, the more he or she loses. People are in profit if they win on the first bet, they break even if they win on the second or third bet, anything after that is a loss and the loss gets bigger and bigger.

## Example fibonacci numbers

Now once you’ve bet this 34 and won, you move back two numbers in the sequence and bet that number. So your next bet would be 13. You repeat this process over and over until you’re back at the start of the progression – always move back two numbers in the sequence after a win. Here is an extended example to show you how this works, using the above example to begin with:

Bet 1 and lose, Bet 1 and lose, Bet 2 and lose, Bet 3 and lose, Bet 5 and lose, Bet 8 and lose, Bet 13 and lose, Bet 21 and lose, Bet 34 and win, Bet 13 and lose, Bet 21 and win, Bet 8 and win, Bet 3 and lose, Bet 5 and win, Bet 2 and lose, Bet 3 and lose, Bet 5 and win, Bet 2 and win, Bet 1 and win

With the above example, you would have made your way back to the start of the sequence and your profit would have been 1, so in this sense it’s a bit like the Martingale in the fact that once you get back to the start of the sequence, the profit is 1.

### Martingale and the Fibonacci strategy

The difference between the two is that in the above example, the Fibonacci lost eight bets in a row and the highest bet was 21. If you were using the Martingale, you would have placed a 256 bet and lost so the Fibonacci is unquestionably safer.

## Conclusion Fibonacci

You also need to remember that like all strategies, the Fibonacci is not immune to a long losing run and when this happens you can find yourself in a hole that only a big chunk of luck will pull you out of. For this reason you should set yourself a stop loss limit and stick to it just like you would with any other strategy. One final thing, using the Fibonacci in the same way as described above (moving back to steps after a loss) is also known as the Whittaker and we also have a full page about it atWhittaker Roulette Strategy.
