# Fibonacci and Whittaker Roulette Strategies: pros and cons

• Written by David Bet
•
Fibonacci is a very interesting roulette strategy because it is safer than other strategies, for example, the Black and White or Martingale’s system. Anyway, as all the roulette strategies, the house maintains a little edge. We analyze pros and cons of the Fibonacci Roulette System and its variation, the so called Whittaker Roulette System.

## FIBONACCI ROULETTE SYSTEM EXPLAINED

This system involves betting using the Fibonacci sequence. For reference purposes, the first 20 numbers are:

1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987, 1597, 2584, 4181, 6765

The sequence is created by adding the previous two numbers in the sequence, starting from the number 1.  The Fibonacci sequence was firstly introduced back in the 1202. A book by Leonardo of Pisa called ”Liber Abaci” introduced this sequence to the Europeans.

When applying The Fibonacci system to the game of roulette, each number in the sequence indicates the stake units, you should bet.

When using the Fibonacci roulette system, each time you lose a round you increase the bet size on the next round, just like in the Martingale system.

As with most systems, it is assumed that you will be betting repeatedly on a 50/50 selection - such as Red/Black or Odd/Even.

## WHITTAKER ROULETTE SYSTEM

When playing to online roulette the Fibonacci sequence is always used in conjunction with the Whittaker system

Move your way through the sequence until you get a win, like the example below

•     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

Now once you have 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 number 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

## FIBONACCI AND WHITTAKER ROULETTE SYSTEMS: PROS & CONS

After you will have returned at the beginning of the sequence, your winnings will be the amount of 1 unit. A big advantage of this system is that in this example we lost 12 times and won only 7 times, but the outcome was still positive.

While planning to use Fibonacci system when playing, the best thing to do is to start with small bets because the numbers in the sequence will increase with every bet that you lose.

Anyway, 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 .

Another thing to remember is that it can take a long time to get back to the start of the sequence and during this time you will need to remain patient and stick to the system exactly.

While playing by following the Fibonacci system is fun and will make you feel like a roulette professional, it will not gain any edge over the casino and help you win tons of cash.
