The 3 2 Roulette System

The 3/2 Roulette strategy comes in two variations: a safer option and one with potentially higher payouts. This straightforward approach takes advantage of the roulette table's layout, specifically the distribution of colors. 
To understand how it works, let's examine the European roulette table layout depicted in the image below. 
Note that in the top 2:1(Column) section, red outnumbers black, whereas in the middle 2:1(Column) section, black exceeds red. In the final 2:1(Column) section, the number of black and red spaces is equal.

3/2 Roulette Strategy Safe 

Let's first examine the safer betting strategy. The setup is as follows: if we wish to place 3$ on red, we select the row with the fewest black numbers. Similarly, when betting on black, we choose the 2:1(Column) bet with the highest number of red numbers. This approach will lead to the following outcome:

Category Count Percentage
Win 26 70.3%
Jackpot 4 10.8%
Whack 11 29.7%

This strategy covers 26 numbers where we can win 1$ and 4 numbers where we can win 7$, giving us approximately 71% coverage of the table. While this is not the highest coverage possible (Romanovsky betting offers 86.5% coverage), it requires a bigger investment of  9$ to win one. Without any chance of hitting the jackpot. In the 3/2 system, players are required to place only 5$.

3/2 Roulette Strategy Higher Payouts

For the betting strategy that offers a higher payout, we place 3$ on red, particularly on the section with the most red. Additionally, we put 2$ on the first 2:1(Column). When betting on black, we place 3$ directly on black and 2$ on the middle 2:1(Column) section. This approach reduces the total coverage to approximately 60%.

Category Count Percentage
Win 22 59.5%
Jackpot 8 21.6%
Whack 15 40.5%

This approach yields 8 numbers on which hitting the jackpot results in winning 7$, and 22 numbers where winning 1$ is possible. Additionally, there are 4 numbers that present a risk where we could lose everything. This makes the strategy more appealing for those seeking larger payouts.


The 3-2 strategy is relatively easy to adopt, especially with a good understanding of the European roulette table layout and payouts. Primarily, we recommend using this strategy for European roulette; however, it can also be applied to both French and American roulette, despite the odds varying from the European version. Regarding bankroll management, it's advisable to set a limit on the number of bets—for instance, deciding to make 10 bets of $50 each. Regardless of the outcomes, conclude your session after these 10 bets. Overall, we believe this is an accessible system that beginners can easily grasp.


Should I use the Martingale strategy with the 3/2 Roulette system?

We do not recommend employing the Martingale strategy for wagers that do not involve a single outcome, such as betting solely on red or black, where the Martingale approach is most effective. Therefore, we advise against using any progressive betting strategy, including the Martingale, in conjunction with the 3/2 Roulette system.

Is the 3/2 Roulette System Profitable?

The 3/2 Roulette System, with its 71% coverage rate, holds the potential for profitability. However, it's important to recognize that no roulette strategy can guarantee wins. Among casino games, roulette is notably one in which the house maintains a significant advantage over the player.

Can I use the 3/2 strategy on an American roulette table?

The layout in terms of colors is the same for both American and European roulette. The primary difference is that the American version includes an extra "00" slot. This results in a smaller coverage area for bets and gives the house a higher edge over players.
