Here's what I'm currently doing to beat the double-zero wheel.

The first part is taken from the "302 systems" that are listed on the web. I'll restate it for the sake of clarity:

You bet one unit on the last two different three-numbered streets that have come out. When one of them wins, you parlay your winnings by putting six units on the last two single-streets to show, and stay at six units until you lose a bet. Then go back to one unit on each. If either of the zeroes shows, then one of your bets will be a split bet on the two zeroes.
Now let me show you some examples of just this part of my strategy:

1) shows, no bet

33) now bet one unit on "first street" (1,2,& 3), and one unit on the street with 31,32,& 33

22) now bet one on 31,32,& 33 (just one unit covering ALL THREE NUMBERS, PLEASE!), and one unit on 22, 23,& 24

00) one unit on 22,23,24, and one unit to split the zeroes

14) one on the zeroes, and one on 13,14,& 15

13) WIN, so put six units on the split bet (0 & 00), and six units on 13, 14,& 15

If either bet wins, keep putting six units on each bet until a loss.
After any loss, bet only one unit on each of the last two single streets, (or the split bet on the zeroes), until a win, then go back to six units on each, until a loss...etc., etc.

O.K., now for the rest of it.

I bet TWO units on the last dozen AND the last column to show, for a total of 4 units. If one or both of the bets win, you let the profit ride. After a loss, increase your bet by one unit (letting winnings ride, until you show a profit, then reset to two units on each, and start over). The dozen bet and the column bet run independently of each other (for the most part). When one of the zeroes shows, I combine the total of both the dozen and the column bet on the five number "crown" or "basket" bet (0,00,1,2,3).

Now I'll explain the strategy using the above examples:

1) bet two units on the first dozen and two units on the first column.

33) lose (you're now -4 units) bet three units on the third dozen, and three units on the third column. Also, the first part places a one unit bet on 1,2,3 and one on 31,32,33

22) lose (-12 units) bet four units on the second dozen, and four units on the first column. Also, one unit on 31,32,33 and one unit on 22,23,24

00) lose (-22 units) now bet 5+5=10 units on 0,00,1,2,3 Also, one unit on 0,00, and one unit on 22,23,24

14) lose (-34 units) bet six units on the second dozen, and six units on the second column. Also, one unit on 0,00 and one unit on 13,14,15

13) WIN +12 units on the second dozen, and +11 units on the single street bet 13,14,15. You lost 6 units on the column bet, and 1 unit on the 0,00 bet, for a total of +16-34=-18. For the next bet, you let the three stacks of six chips ride on the second dozen, for a total bet of 18 units, and put seven (6+1) units on the first column. The street bet now becomes six on each 0,00 and 13,14,15.

So, if you win the second dozen bet, you get 18x3=54, which obviously puts you ahead, and, if you win the street bet, you get 72 units back, or 108 units on the 0,00 split bet. Then, the dozen and column bet would reset to two units on each, but if you won either one of the street bets, they would both stay at six units until a loss, and only then reset back to one unit on each.
I usually place a hedge bet on the zeroes whenever I'm making a "parlay" bet, if there isn't already a bet on them, but that's totally optional.
But, let's say all the bets lose...then the next bet would be eight units on each of the last dozen and column bets, and back to one unit on each of the last two street bets.

I usually don't risk more than 100 or 200 units at a session, and, as you can see, if the numbers go your way, you can get well in a hurry!

You only need a given dozen or column to show three times in a row to do well with this. I find that this usually happens with great regularity on a double-zero wheel, and, you will really "clean up" if the street bets go on short winning streaks, as well.

I'm open to any comments, questions, or recommendations on this strategy.

Best Wishes to ALL!!!

Ben, I am of the opinion a person should know GOOD when to let it ride. This is a technique for saavy players who get the feeling right of when to rise!

Having said that I believe in TRAMS, both positive (hitting more than expected) and negative (performnig below expected).

Maybe that can add information on WHEN to risk the parlay: trying to ride the the positive tram wave.

Just an idea. This is the Brainstorming section!

I have learned that on negative trams, better not to take risks, at all.
Friendly question: Do you like to consider the trams in your personal strategy?

Our opinions counts for the benefit of everyone.

Best regards,
Victor

Thanks Victor!
That's why I usually limit my risk to 100 or 200 units...if it's just not happening that day, then I quit and come back another time.

It's hard to know exactly when those winning streaks will happen, that's why I only bet one unit on the single streets until they start repeating. Then, you risk very little on each spin, until a streak starts. But, by itself, I found that that system didn't give me enough 'action', so I added the dozens and columns, which seemed to make the whole thing more 'balanced'.

When playing the twelve-numbered sections, I use a negative progression similar to the d'alembert, aggressive version, because I feel that those dozens and columns will streak for three times in a row frequently enough to produce a profit. And, don't forget, there are always four numbers where you will win BOTH the dozen and the column. Any time that happens, I can evaluate whether or not I want to run the parlay. Maybe not, if I'm already ahead after both dozen and column win. Also, on the dozens and columns, I only parlay my winnings ONCE, which means that the dozen or column only has to repeat for a total of three times in a row. Sometimes I win both the dozen and column bet, and only one of them is a 'parlay' bet. If I'm ahead after that winning spin, I can always reset both bets back to the minimum of two units. Of course, you can win up to three of the four bets with this strategy, which is always great, and you can reset to the minimum bet anytime you feel it is appropriate. If you're way ahead, maybe it's your lucky day, and you can press all three winning bets.

It's interesting, though, that it seems to work better with a real dealer, as opposed to RGN. I have yet to lose my 100 to 200 unit buy-in at a real table (with a win-goal of 50%), but playing against random generated numbers, I sometimes have drawdowns of several hundred units. However, if I ride the losing streaks out, I always seem to turn a profit, even with RGN.

It would be great if someone would go through some of their actual spins and see how often a dozen or column shows for three times in a row.

Most people will say, "yeah, but what about the zeroes?!" But, if you read my strategy carefully, you'll see that if the zeroes show consecutively, or even every other spin, you will make a huge profit. So a lot of zeroes don't hurt, in fact, the more, the better, especially if they clump together.

Best of all, for me, is that you don't have to think too much about it! It's pretty mechanical.

Best of Luck, Everyone!

As far as trams go, Victor, I'll have to study this concept more before I respond.

I'll test this system with Maltezan's actuals, even though they are from a single-zero wheel. Since I don't have a lot of time, I'll just mark where the dozens and/or columns and single streets repeat for three times or more (four times for single streets)...

Without actually crunching the numbers, it seems like enough action to turn a profit, in spite of the dry spell towards the end of the run. However, I would have quit with a profit before any damage to my bankroll occured. Probably after I won the last dozen and street bets together, I would have placed one or two more bets, and then gotten out.
In summary, the street bet parlay won FIVE TIMES (66units x 5=330units), the dozen parlay won 12 times, the column bet parlay won 5 times, and two of the parlays won simutaneously 7 times. These results are consistant with my actuals on the double-zero wheel.
When I have more time, I'll give more details on each bet and the \$\$\$ results.
