Fibonacci’s name should sound familiar to every one of us. We learned about him in mathematics at school. Of course not in relation to roulette game strategy. Leonardo Bonacci, aka Fibonacci was quite famous in his time. Thanks to his open-mindedness we use Arabic numerals today, instead of Roman. And we - the players - can thank him for winning good money. This is thanks to one of his discoveries, the so-called Fibonacci sequence.

There is nothing difficult about this system, in short - each next number in the sequence is a sum of the last two numbers preceding it. The Fibonacci sequence (by the way it was developed upon order for money), was based on nature, where this sequence of numbers occurs in the arrangement of sunflower seeds for example.

## Fibonacci strategy principle

The Fibonacci sequence looks like this:

1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987... etc. to infinity.

In order for you to be able to use the Fibonacci strategy, you need a piece of paper or something to record individual bets, you will have to do some counting.

The game looks as follows:

Choose the color to bet on. You determine the bet according to the Fibonacci sequence: You start with €1. If you lose, you put down the loss on the list. In the next round you once again bet €1 (the following number in the sequence, sum 0+1). If you lose, you record the number and you bet €2 in the next round. If you lose again, note down the loss at the end of the sequence of numbers. It will look as follows 1+1+2. In the next round you bet the amount according to the next number in the sequence: €3. If you lose again, your series will now look as follows: 1+1+2+3. Once again you increase your bet according to the sequence to €5. After another loss, your series will look as follows 1+1+2+3+5.

You bet 8 euro. If you finally win in this round, you cross out the last two numbers in the series. Your series now looks like this: 1+1+2 and you continue with a bet of €3. It is simple and easy to get the hang of. There are different versions of this system, the most famous is the three-dozen Fibonacci sequence; however this strategy can be neutralized by risk management measures, therefore it is becoming difficult to use.

## Drawbacks

This is a conservative strategy resulting in certain drawbacks. But one win will always return the previous two losses, meaning that in the long run you will only be in the plus if you win in more than 33% of cases. If you get caught in alternate wins and losses, the strategy can be without end. Another problem may result in the limitation of bet amounts at the table. After more than 10 losses, which don’t even necessarily need to be in sequence, you will have to play high bets and this is seldom allowed.

## Summary

The Fibonacci strategy is for thrifty players who prefer a slower game. For dynamic players it is too time consuming. The advantage lies in the fact that the player has control over his money and the game does not suck him dry too quickly.
