How Paroli works
Paroli is one of the simpler strategies that you can apply at the roulette table. It’s designed to be used on bet alternatives that give you double the stake back, such as red/black colour and even/uneven number.
When applying the strategy, you would first have to decide a base stake that you would like to use. Every time you have a losing round at the table, your next bet should always be the amount of the base stake. On a winning round, the stake is however doubled, but eventually also reset to the base stake even though you keep winning. How many times you should keep doubling your stake before resetting it is completely up to you, but the strategy says to only do it two times. Let’s illustrate this with an example:
You decide your base stake to be £1. You place your first bet and lose it, which means that your next bet should be placed with another £1 as the base stake should always be bet at a loss. This time you win, hence your next bet should be increased to £2 as the stake should always be doubled at a win (up to two times). Once again lady luck is by your side and you hit a win. Therefore, you double your stake once again, which means that your next bet will now be placed with £4. This is the second time you doubled your stake, which means that regardless if you win or lose this round, your next bet will be reset to the base stake.
|1||£1||x||Bet the base stake|
|2||£1||x||Double your last stake|
|3||£2||x||Double your last stake|
|4||£4||x||Bet the base stake|
|5||£1||x||Double your last stake|
|6||£2||x||Bet the base stake|
As you can see in the table above, we reset the stake to the base one on the fifth round as we had successfully doubled our stake twice. Should you like to, you can of course decide to step out of the frame that is suggested by the Paroli strategy and keep increasing your bets even on the fifth round.
