Hi there, first post here I'd though I'd sign up as I've found a rather interesting method...

The 'follow the leader' system is where you always bet on the last colour that came up. This system takes advantage of the fact that in completely random sequences there will be segments that appear non-random, i.e. a winning streak of reds or blacks.

Generally this system only succeeds when used in conjuction with progressive betting, but this is also it's demise as of course progressive bets eventually fail once you've taken enough losses to hit the table max bet limit...

Quick example of play:

**Follow the Leader**1) A red was the last to come in so you bet 1 unit on red.

2) A red comes in so you win. Now bet 1 unit on red once again.

3) A black comes in so you lose. Now you double your bet and place it on black, therefore 2 units on black.

4) A black comes in so you win the 1 unit you lost previously plus 1 unit. Now you restart and so bet 1 on black, and so it goes on. If a green comes in, you place your units on the opposite colour to the one you were currently betting on (if red, bet black, and vice versa).

The main problem with this method is when the colours switch every round, so you get sequences like RBRBRBRBRB; these sequences will bring you close to the table bet limits, and eventually over :\

The first time I played this method I won £600, my biggest win to date

I only stopped because I got tired! At the time I thought this system was unbeatable, only to find out the next day that I had had a lucky spree as I lost it all..

And so began my journey to fix this method to work for the long-term as best I could! And I think I may have found a fix, here it is:

**Follow the Leader Variation**1) Firstly, when the opposite colour to the one your betting on comes in, you don't switch over immediately. instead you +1 to your losing streak, and then double your bet. If you were betting 1 on red, you now bet 2 on red.

2) If a red now comes in then you can reset your losing streak back to zero, and also your bet. So your back to 1 unit on red now as you won.

3) If though you did not win (black came in again), you +1 to your losing streak again. Once your losing streak reaches +3

then you switch over. You

**also** reset your bet back to 1. So now you'll be betting 1 unit on black. This means you'll have to win a few rounds to recover your previous loss of 6 units (much less stressful than a 100 units)

Now some data. I wrote a computer program to calculate the profits after each round from the spin data recorded at

http://www.spielbank-wiesbaden.de/DE/621/Permanenzen2.php. I then put the numbers into a graph using openOffice. Here they are:

Table 8

Table 9

Table 10

I would have done the other tables but they had no data up for download for them. The bet progression used was £5, £10, £20 (then reset back to £5 of course).

Whats interesting is that all 3 tables stay in profit longer than they don't, they also reach the £200 mark and above seemingly regularly. That is the 2 main reasons why I think this method may be a winner
