Fibonacci strategy features
This strategy is based on a sequence of numbers created by an Italian mathematician in the Middle Ages. Many experienced players use the Fibonacci strategy as one of the easiest and safest methods.
Fibonacci sequence is a number series. Each new member is the sum of the two previous numbers. For example, we have the sequence 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8… Why is the fourth member in this sequence is the number 3? Because it is the sum of the two previous members: 1 + 2 = 3. This principle is put into the gradual increase system in the size of the bet for each subsequent game round.
Use the following rules:
- Choose equiprobable betting events (even/odd, red/black and similar).
- Calculate the size of the new bet as the sum of the two previous ones.
- Do not reduce the size of the bet in case of a win (this is an important difference from the Martingale strategy). Calculate the size of the new bet as the sum of the two previous numbers minus the last two numbers. For example, if your bets were ‘1-1-2-3-5-8-win’, then exclude 5 and 8 from this range. In this case, 2 + 3 = 5 – the size of your bet after winning.
Advantages and disadvantages of the Fibonacci strategy
In practice, the Fibonacci strategy is more promising and profitable than the Martingale method. You can lose, but get a big win in the end. Let’s look at the benefits:
- The reduced risk of reaching the bets upper threshold for a table, which provides certain advantages for the player.
- You can play even with a small bankroll.
- You will remember the lessons of mathematics and make the gameplay more interesting and fun.
We warn you about the presence of some flaws in the Fibonacci strategy:
- If you have no luck during a long gaming session, you will eventually reach the limit on the maximum bet amount. This means that you have to use another strategy or leave the game.
- The duration of the game session is limited by the size of your bankroll.
- You will be nervous if the losing streak takes too long.
Is the Fibonacci system safe?
To answer this question, we compare this strategy with the Martingale method. Suppose, the size of the initial bet is 1 dollar. So, we get two sequences for the Fibonacci strategy and the Martingale strategy, respectively:
If the seventh bet did not win, you will lose $ 13 (Fibonacci) and $ 64 (Martingale). As you can see, the martingale strategy is much riskier for your money. You should always keep in mind two previous bet amounts in order not to destroy the system. You will not be able to get too large a profit, because the amount of each bet is growing slowly (much slower than if you use the Martingale strategy). However, this leads to the safety of the Fibonacci method.
