Whittacker Progression Roulette System

The Whittacker Progression (also spelled Whittaker) system is, as the name implies, a progressive roulette system. Players increase their bet depending on the outcome of their previous bet.

How to Use the Whittacker Progression Roulette System

The Whittacker Progression roulette system is used on even money bets in the game of roulette – red/black, odd/even or high/lo. You need to choose a sequence, preferably starting with the lowest possible bet at the table. For our example we will start with a lowest bet of $1 (although at some tables you may find bets as low as $0.10).

Every time you lose a bet, you increase your bet by the sum of the two bets that came before it. In our case, this will look similar to the Fibonacci system.

1 1 2 3 5 8 13 etc

Every time you win a bet, you remove the last two numbers in your sequence and start your sequence again from that point. This means that if you win your bet on bet number four, your progression will look as follows:

1 1 2 3 1 1 2 3 5 etc

If you are on a winning streak from the beginning of your game, your sequence will look like this:

1 1 1 1 1 1 etc

You continue playing with the sequence until all of your numbers have been crossed off.

Does the Whittacker Progression Roulette System Work?

This is a negative progression system in that you increase your bet when you lose. The theory behind this system is that you will lock in your winnings and thereby recover your losses with only a few spins. As with any roulette system, the Whittacker Progression system will not ensure that you win or influence the odds of the game in any way. What it will do is provide you with a methodical approach to betting.

Set Your Limits

An important point to keep in mind with the Whittacker progression system is that one loss can wipe out all of your profits. Because of this, you need to set some sensible limits for yourself and make sure that you stick to them. Set aside a bankroll for playing with and make sure to only use that bankroll for the game. Do not dig into money that has been set aside for other purposes. Also, set a loss limit and a profit goal and walk away from the table when you reach either of these limits. This will help you to limit your losses and keep hold of your gains. Also, try to play for entertainment and remember that roulette is a game of chance – sometimes you will be unlucky and be on a losing streak, but next time, you may win.
