Hollandish Roulette Strategy

A reactive strategy that is designed specifically to help you recover from nasty losses. Bounce back and succeed!

The Hollandish system requires a bit of thought from the player. There are no strict rules specifying how much you should bet each turn. Instead, you bet reactively, wagering different amounts based on your corcumstances. This strategy is designed for recuperating after losses rather than providing you with wins.

How To Use The Hollandish System

When using the Hollandish system, you need to decide how much 1 unit will be. You start off by placing 1 unit until you win (whether it’s on your first spin or the 100th doesn’t matter), at which point you raise your bet to whatever you want, although should be an amount that covers your losses.

Usually, this will be about 3 or 4 units, but it all depends on how much you’ve lost. When you win, you raise your bet again and carry on in this fashion until you have recovered your losses.

Here’s an example of the Hollandish system in action:

  • Place 1 unit and lose (-1)
  • Place 1 unit and lose (-2)
  • Place 1 unit and win (-1)
  • Place 3 units and lose (-4)
  • Place 3 units and win (-1)
  • Place 5 units and win (+4)

Even though there are an equal amount of wins and losses, you still end up with a profit. This system does insist that you switch to another betting method once you’ve regained your losses though, so it’s not tailored for building profits.
