# The Fibonacci Betting Strategy

The Fibonacci betting strategy is a system based on the Fibonacci sequence and is one of the most popular methods to beat roulette.

The betting outcome depends on where you bet and what you bet on. Wagers that cover either of the two outside numbers (i.e. 1 or 36) produce losses, whereas those that cover just one number in between (28/34/38) will produce a gain if it covers your initial bet, and result in a push if it doesn’t.

What you need to know about Fibonacci betting strategy:

Fibonacci bets are made up of a sequence of three numbers: the inside spread and the outside spread and the deciding number in between.

For example:
The Fibonacci betting system is based primarily on using one’s initial bet to establish the Fibonacci numbers for two or three successive lines. The process bestiges, starting with whole numbers (1, 2, 3, 5, 8), then mixing in the smaller Fibonacci numbers (0.5, 1.5, 2.5) between larger Fibonacci numbers to create the Fibonacci sequence (1/0.5, 2/1.5, 3/2.5, 5/3.5). The fractions (0.384615384615384615384615… and so on) in between consecutive Fibonaccis are considered “junk numbers.”

For example:
The number in the center can be any of the following: 0.5, 1.5, 2.5, 3.5, 5.5 or 5 and still maintain the Fibonacci sequence and will mean that each consecutive number will be 1 higher than the previous number:

At first glance the system might appear quite complicated because of its “junk” numbers, however it is very simple and easy to follow. The first seven steps are as follows:
The 8th step (8/1.75) means bet 8 units on number 19 (1). If 19 does not come up then the 8 unit stake is lost. If 19 comes up and you win, the 9th step (9/3.5) means bet 9 units on number 19 and if 19 comes up and you win this time the 10th step (10/7.5) means bet 10 units on “A”.
Example:
8/19 10/A8 10/A8 10/A8 15/A8 15/A8 15/17.5 17.5/23 23/34 34/45 45

The total winnings on the above bet is \$78.75, compared to \$7 had the 8 unit bet won on its own. This is why Fibonacci betting strategy is so popular amongst roulette players, as it allows you to increase your winning percentage against the house by more than double.

Tips:
If the first bet loses, you must make a series of bets that will recoup your original wager. The sequence is roughly 1-2-3-5-8-13. These are the only numbers that are not considered “junk” numbers.

Ex. 7/1.75 9/3.5 10/7.5 15/A8 15/A8 15/A8 15/17.5 17.5/23 23/34 34/45 45

Note: this sequence will win you the same amount if the original bet loses (because you would have made up for it in bet 2 and 3), or lose money if the first bet wins (because you would have lost in all subsequent bets).

Fibonacci betting strategy is most profitable when it is used with two or more bets on each column.

For example:
11/11-1 11/5-1 11/5-2 11/5-3 5/4-1 7/2.5 9/4.5 13/-1 13/-2 13/-3

Each time the former comes up, the Fibonacci sequence numbers are already known and if they happen to cover your original bet you will win.
