## How to use the James Bond Roulette Strategy

You start with a ÂŁ200 bankroll (scale up or down depending on the size of your actual bankroll), and bet ÂŁ14 on one column, ÂŁ5 on another and ÂŁ10 on the green slot. If none of your numbers come up, you simply double the amount you bet next time.

A great way to test out roulette strategies is via some real games, and thatâ€™s exactly what we did with some simulated roulette sessions at Pots of Gold, who have a number of European tables streamed in via Evolution Gamingâ€™s facility in Latvia.

## James Bond Roulette Strategy Tested

So, what happened when we tried the James Bond Method? We planned 3 betting rounds of 10 spins each - a reasonable number for the purposes of illustration. Unfortunately, we couldn't keep to this number of betting rounds, as you will see later. We bet ÂŁ14 on the top column (3,6,9, 12 15,18,21,24,27,30,33,36); ÂŁ5 on the middle column (2,5,8,11,14,17,20,23,26,29,32,35) and ÂŁ10 on the zero. Here are the outcomes:

#### Round 1

• The first spin landed on 3. At 2:1 that turned our ÂŁ14 into ÂŁ42, taking us up to ÂŁ242 for a cost of which cost us ÂŁ29, leaving us with a total bankroll of ÂŁ213.
• Then a 9 was spun - another column win taking us to ÂŁ226.
• Then 28 â€“ our uncovered column. That cost us ÂŁ29, taking us down to ÂŁ197. Now itâ€™s time to double up, with a total of ÂŁ58 bet.
• Next came 14, taking us ÂŁ30 up for a cost of ÂŁ58, leaving us with ÂŁ169.
• We now reduced our bet back to ÂŁ29, and a 4 was spun, taking us down to ÂŁ140.
• Then we doubled our bet to ÂŁ58 again, and 5 was spun, taking us down to ÂŁ112.
• Then we reduced our bet to ÂŁ29 again and an 11 came up â€“ taking us to ÂŁ98.
• Then came a 32 appeared, taking us to ÂŁ84.
• Another 3 took us to ÂŁ97

Finally a 19 took us down to ÂŁ68

#### Round 2

• An 11 took us to ÂŁ86
• A 6 then took us to ÂŁ99
• Next came a 1: This cost us ÂŁ29, taking us to a round ÂŁ70
• We then doubled up and spent ÂŁ58. A 32 was spun, yielding ÂŁ30 â€“ so an overall loss of ÂŁ28 taking us to ÂŁ42
• We then dropped back to ÂŁ29, and lost the lot when a 19 came up, taking us to ÂŁ13.

Unable to double our bets, we wagered what we had left and were unable to continue using the James Bond method. We therefore quit with our ÂŁ13 intact.

#### Round 3

This was our last chance for the day, and the numbers came up as follows:

• First to appear was a 12. This took our bankroll to ÂŁ213
• Then came a 6, taking us to ÂŁ226.
• Then a 33 was spun â€“ now we were at ÂŁ239.
• A 34 lost us ÂŁ29, taking us to ÂŁ210
• We then doubled up and spent ÂŁ58 for a ÂŁ30 win, taking us to ÂŁ182
• Back at the ÂŁ29 bet level a 1 came up, losing us ÂŁ29, taking us to ÂŁ153.
• We therefore had to double up again, and this time the zero came good: Great news, with a ÂŁ58 bet yielding a return of ÂŁ720. That takes us up by ÂŁ662 to a total bankroll of ÂŁ815.
• A 10 lost us ÂŁ29 leaving us with ÂŁ786
• We therefore doubled up, spending ÂŁ58 and an 8 came up to take us down by ÂŁ28 to ÂŁ758

Finally, we ended up with a 36, taking us by ÂŁ13 to arrive at ÂŁ771.

As you can see, there will be many times in your James Bond-inspired roulette play sessions when things seem pretty bad. But the eventual, inevitable appearance of the magic zero will change everything.

We started out with three ÂŁ200 bankrolls - ÂŁ600 in total â€“ and ended up with just ÂŁ68, a complete disaster at ÂŁ13 â€“ and finally ÂŁ771, taking the total bankroll to ÂŁ852.

Thatâ€™s not bad for a day at the tables, and show you just what sort of a ride you might expect.

## Should you use the James Bond Strategy?

These outcomes were taken directly from real games on real tables, and as you can see they ebb and flow as youâ€™d expect.

But they show that decent returns are very achievable, so when trying this method donâ€™t panic if things seem to be going out of hand.

After playing thousands of spins over a lifetime youâ€™ll be seeing the ball land in green on plenty of occasions, and when it does whilst youâ€™re using the James Bond strategy you can be sure of a huge upwards change in your bankroll.

To many, the idea of emulating 007 seems too good to be true, but the reality is that anyone can use his approach to roulette.

It wonâ€™t require you to perform any near-lethal stunts, take on highly-trained Soviet assassins or converse fluently in several oriental languages. You just follow the formula, and wait for the cash to start building up.
