Whittacker Roulette Strategy

The Whittacker System is very similar (nearly identical) to the Fibonacci system and is a negative progression system that may take a little getting used to.

As such, it isn’t recommended for beginners; however, if you understand how the system works then you may well find it very valuable.

How To Use The Whittacker System

The betting strategy for the Whittacker system will also require you to memorize your previous bets, so you should always have a pen and paper handy when you want to use this system. Your betting sequence should go like this:

  • Make your initial bet which will be referred to as 1 unit. Remember that this will be the lowest you can bet using the system, so make sure you make it affordable.
  • When you lose, your next bet will be the sum of your previous two bets. You also start off by betting 1 unit, followed by 2 units; after that you add the two previous bets to make the next one (so the sequence goes 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21 etc.)
  • When you win, lower your wager down to 1 unit and start again.

This is very similar to the Fibonacci system, except you lower your wager completely when using the Whittacker strategy. You’re meant to use even outside bets for this system, including red/black, odd/even and high/low.

Here’s an example of the Whittacker system using even bets:

  • Place 1 unit and lose (-1).
  • Place 2 units and lose (-3).
  • Place 3 units and lose (-6).
  • Place 5 units and lose (-11).
  • Place 8 units and win (-3).

Even after a losing streak, one win restored most of your cash. At this point you would return to your original bet.

Joey’s Whittacker Strategy

A quick exclusive tip for my loyal readers! If you’re going to implement Whittacker system, I’ve found that using Dozen and Column bets is a lot more profitable and far less risky.

The only drawback to this technique is that you’re somewhat compromising on your chances of winning by pursuing a larger profit. However, your bets still cover nearly a third of the wheel, so the odds are still in your favour.

Here’s how the Whittacker system works when using Dozen and Column bets:

  • Place 1 unit and lose (-1).
  • Place 2 units and lose (-3).
  • Place 3 units and lose (-6).
  • Place 5 units and lose (-11).
  • Place 8 units and win (+5).

As you can see, when you’re betting with Dozens and Columns instead of even bets you’ll actually make a profit. Placing only even bets will require you to get more than one win to break even, which isn’t ideal, whereas dozens/columns will only require one win to make you a profit.


  • Flexible system, allowing you to take some more control over your bet.
  • If used properly it can recover your losses immediately.
  • Makes you feel like a professional after just one win.


  • If used incorrectly, you can really screw yourself over.
  • A long losing streak will put you out of pocket.
  • Trickier to implement than most other roulette systems.
