# Testing \$150 Roulette System

Last updated: 01.15.2023 by Andrew Shepard

While this strategy is known by a few other names, it is most commonly called the \$150 strategy. As the name hints to, this system is better geared toward players with bigger bankrolls. Of course, you could experiment with scaled down versions if you want to.

## How the \$150 System Works

The simplicity of the \$150 system gives it a lot of charm. It basically calls for the following combination of bets:

• Wager \$50 each on two of the three Dozens.
• Cover 10 of the remaining open Dozens spaces straight-up for \$5 each.

This leaves us with just three uncovered numbers giving us a 91.89% chance of winning.

So, here are the three possible outcomes:

• We win one of the Dozens bets. This will result in no net gain and no net loss. We’d break even on the round.
• We win one of the straight-up bets. This would give us a \$30 profit on the round.
• We lose. This means our bankroll takes a \$150 hit.

To sum it up, we stand to either break even, win \$30, or lose \$150. As it turns out, we have a 27.03% chance of making a profit. This means it would take 5 winning rounds to make up for a loss.

If you have read any of our other roulette strategy reviews recently, then the \$150 system might look familiar. If it does, then you are probably thinking about the 24+8 strategy. We suggest that you familiarize yourself with the 24+8 strategy and compare it to this one. You would not be mistaken if you conclude that these two systems are one and the same. If we consider 24+8 as a general case of this betting pattern, then the \$150 system is its special case in which the base betting unit is simply increased 5 times. That's the whole secret of this strategy.

Let’s illustrate the \$150 roulette strategy by playing five fictitious rounds.

• Spin 1

We win one of our Dozens which is essentially a push.

• Spin 2

We hit one of our straight-up bets giving us a \$30 profit.

• Spin 3

We hit another one of our straight-up bets for another \$30 gain. We are now up \$60 on the session.

• Spin 4

Oops! We missed all of our bets costing us \$150. We are now down \$90 in total.

• Spin 5

We nail one of the Dozens bets and rake in \$30. We end the 5-turn session with a \$60 loss.

## Putting the \$150 Strategy to the Test

As always, we will use the Google sheets, the appropriate mathematical formulas, and a random number generator to test the effectiveness and dynamics of the \$150 system. We have already tested the 24+8 system. Seeing how it’s the same basic strategy, we will simply change the formulas to suit the \$150 system’s betting parameters. We will also keep the wager amounts steady as opposed to upping or lowering the stake following a win or loss.

Let’s take 5 players and give them each \$1,000 to use the \$150 system for 500 turns. Here’s what we get:

In general, the test showed quite successful results. We see that all players at certain intervals went into profit. The peak for the first player is \$1120 on the 25th move, for the second player is \$1210 on the 36th move, for the third player is \$1480 on the 128th move, and for the fourth player is \$1330 on the 119th move.

It is clear that the larger the base bet, the greater the dynamics of the bankroll. As we remember, in the 24+8 test with the minimum base rate, the amplitude of the charts was much smaller.

Of course, the risk increases with a 5-fold increase in the bet, but as we understand it, this is not such a total risk. And if you have an adequate bankroll, then we would advise you to take a risk.

## Pitfalls of Using the \$150 System

One of the first things our simulation of the \$150 strategy tells us is that it doesn’t work in long-term situations. We learned the same thing when we simulated the 24+8 method. While most players in the \$150 system simulation spent a bit of time in the black, their bankrolls all eventually zeroed out. And it happened quite quickly. It’s also obvious that this system isn’t a good approach for smaller bankrolls. On the other hand, if you set short-term realistic goals and don't get carried away with this method for too long, then bankruptcy can be avoided.

## Conclusion

The \$150 system is nearly identical to the 24+8 strategy. The difference is really just the base stake size. Increasing the stakes will inevitably result in a more dynamic bankroll balance.

The chances of making a profit from one round of the \$150 system stand at 27.03% while the chances of losing are 8.11% That leaves us with a 64.86% chance of a push. Just remember that it takes 5 wins to compensate for each loss.

As it was with the 24+8 and most other strategies, the \$150 system only stands a chance of success when implemented in short spurts. So, is the \$150 strategy for you? Well, the answer should be obvious. You are better off using the \$150 strategy for a few rounds if your budget allows it. If you don’t have \$150 to wager every spin, then the 24+8 is the better option for you.
