How to beat Betfair No Zero Roulette
No Zero Roulette optimal strategy
Betfair's No Zero Roulette is the only Roulette in the world with no zero.
In 'normal' Roulette, the casino has its advantage in the zero. The payout on any single number is 35 to 1, but the odds against are actually 36 to 1 - there are 36 chances it won't come up (35 'wrong' numbers plus the zero), and only 1 that it will. This difference between the odds and the payout is known as the 'House Edge'.
Because Betfair's Zero Lounge Roulette has NO zero, the odds against a single number and the payout are the same - 35 to 1. In other words, the house edge is zero, hence the name 'Zero edge Roulette'.
Put simply, Betfair expects to win nothing from its Zero Roulette! It therefore has the best odds and the highest payout of any online casino Roulette.

Please note the the Zero Lounge games are only available in the downloaded version of Betfair casino. You won't find them in the online casino, so to play Zero Lounge Roulette, you'll need to download the casino.
Betfair Zero edge Roulette strategy
Zero edge Roulette system
The 'true odds' nature of Zero Lounge Roulette should make things perfect for anyone wanting to use one of the many evens-chance gambling systems that we've tested. Imagine using the Martingale or the Fibonacci on a true evens chance Roulette - it would be like using it on a coin toss, you'd be guaranteed to win!
Well, Betfair may be generous, but they're not stupid! They're as aware of these systems as we are, so to ensure they don't lose a fortune, they've set their table limits very low on these bets (see table right).
What this means is that if you're using one of the doubling or progressive systems eg the Martingale or the Fibonacci, just four or five losing bets (this will happen quite often) will very quickly see you exceeding the table limits - and losing.

The system to beat Zero Lounge Roulette
Fortunately, there's still one system that we are able to use against Zero Lounge Roulette - the 1-3-2-4 system. Of all the systems we tested it was one of only 3 (along with the Paroli and 1-3-2-6) that showed an overall profit on all six of our tests, but for the reasons we discuss in our summary, it's the most stable and consistent.
In the 1-3-2-4 gambling system, the sequence of winning bets is simply
1, 3, 2, 4.
If you win all four bets, you go back to the start. If you lose any bet, you also go back to the start. So long as you're winning, you progress through this sequence.
NB the bets relate to a number of units, so our recommendation is to bet in £5 units to maximise your winnings, but keep you within the table limits.
To beat Zero Edge Roulette, your bet sequence is
£5, £15, £10, £20.
Win - even when you lose!
You win big with the 1-3-2-4 when all four bets come up (a 1 in 16 chance)
But the great thing about the 1-3-2-4 is that as long as you win the first two bets (1 in 4), you're guaranteed to win, even if the third bet loses!
If your first bet loses, your loss is 1 unit. If the second loses, your loss is 2 units (you'll have bet 4, won 2)
This is the 'danger point', but once you're past it, you literally can't lose. Even if the third bet loses, you make a profit of 2 units, because you'll be 4 units up after bet 2!
If the third and fourth win, your overall profit is 10 units.
But even if the fourth bet loses, you still come out with a profit of 2 units.
1. Alternating win (W,W,L,W,L,L,W,L,W,W,L,W)
2. Alternating loss (L,L,W,L,W,W,L,W,L,L,W,L)
3. Consecutive win (W,W,W,L,L,W,W,L,W,W,W,L)
4. Consecutive loss (L,L,L,W,W,L,L,W,L,L,L,W)
5. Good win (W,W,W,W,L,L,W,W,W,W,W,W)
6. Bad loss (L,L,L,L,W,W,L,L,L,L,L,L)
Overall result for all 6 tests
7 units loss
5 units profit
5 units loss
22 units profit
7 units loss
8 units profit
