How the Reverse Labouchere Roulette System Works

The Labouchere Roulette System is one of the famous roulette systems used by gamblers around the world to rake huge profit at the casino. The formula is designed to let gamblers exit the game with winning. One of disadvantages of the system is you may be dragged into a long loop if you face consecutive losses during your unlucky moment. Experts have modified the system and come out with a slight variation that becomes quite famous in its own right; the system is called The Reverse Labouchere Roulette System. Let’s explore how this system works:

Much like the original Labouchere Roulette System that uses a series of numbers in a line to decide how to bet following a win or a loss, where you eliminate the number in the line when you win and you add the number to the line when you lose, the reverse system does the opposite where you need to add number when you win and eliminate the number in the line when you lose.

Under the strategy of the Reverse Labouchere Roulette System, you have to decide the amount of money that might possible loss so that you never go overboard, while the strategy allow you to maximize the possible winnings which are only limited by reaching the maximum bet allowed on the roulette table. With these 2 facets combined, this betting system enables you to limit your losses while maximising your winnings.

Let’s use an example to see how the Reverse Roulette Labouchere System works:

1. First, decide your afforded possible losses per cycle, let’s assume the amount is $30.

2. Then, develop your Labouchere betting line. If you would like to play a less risky game, then develop a longer line, with smaller numbers such as 2-2-2-2-2-3-3-4-4-6; else if you would like to play a shorter, more aggressive game, simply make a shorter line with bigger numbers, such as 5-5-10-10.

3. Once you have developed the betting line, you can start bet on the game.

Let’s assume you are using the line of 2-2-2-2-2-3-3-4-4-6.

In our example, the Labouchere strategy requires you to add up the first and last numbers of the line that are 2 and 6, so your bet amount is $8 and bet on your favourite 50/50 bet at Roulette (Red/Black, Even/Odd and Hi/Lo).

If you win, simply add the number of the amount you just wagered, in our case is 8 to the end of the line and the line will become 2-2-2-2-2-3-3-4-4-6-8. On the other hand, if you lose, then cross out the number in the line that you combined to make your last bet, in our case is 2 & 6 and the line becomes X-2-2-2-2-3-3-4-4-X. Simply repeat the process until you have crossed out all the numbers or you have reached the table limit and you can’t make further bet.

If you have crossed all the numbers in the line, then your have reached the possible losing amount, in our case is $30. If the line is getting longer, meaning that the more money you have won.


The Reverse Labouchere Roulette System is a modified version of it original strategy that needs you to decide your possible losses upfront so that you won’t go overboard while it maximizes your winning potential that only limits by the maximum table limit.
