Apostolat-priere – This is a betting system that has been developed by a man named Jean-Robert Bellande in the 1950s. Although it is not a commonly used roulette system today, it is still widely accepted as a means of developing an income by utilising a mostly unknown principle of mathematics in casino games.
In roulette, the probability of the ball landing on any given number is 1:39 – or one in every 3 chances, essentially even money bets (red, black, odd, even, 1-to-1). So using the Labouchere system, you can bet on any pocket with the probability of the ball landing on it occurring.
- First, you need to decide the range of pockets on the table you want to bet on. Then, you need to decide the wheel type ( Figure 1). You have the advantage of studying the wheel to identify these pockets before placing your bets, therefore increasing your odds of winning.
- Pocket 1 odds are the numbers that rarely come up ( Figure 2).
- Pocket 2 odds are the numbers that almost never come up ( Figure 3).
- Pocket 3 odds are the numbers that are a member of the group of numbers that appear quite often ( Figure 4).
- Pocket 4 odds are the numbers that are a member of the group of numbers that appears quite rarely, ( Figure 5).
- Pocket 5 odds are the numbers that are a member of the group of numbers that is an even number ( Figure 6).
- Pocket 7 odds are the numbers that are a member of the group of numbers that is an even number with 2 or more digits ( Figure 7).
Your bet is on the ‘0’ pocket when the wheel is wheeling ( Figure 1). If the ball lands on the ‘0’ pocket, you lose. But if the ball lands on any of the other pockets, you win because the odds are greater you will win, the same as if the ball had landed on the ‘0’.
You can have as many as 6 possible outcomes from the same pocket ( Figure 1). This means that the probability of the ball landing on any one of the pockets is 1/6 or 38%. The odds of a ball landing on a given pocket is 1/38 or 2.63%.
You need to investigate which of the pockets a ball has landed in, and bet on that pocket. If you are not sure the bet is rather risky. But if you are a proven winner, the money is there, in the betting bank, waiting for you.

The decision as to what pocket the ball should land in is an expert guess, but will give you a slight advantage over the house.
- Ball landing – Avoid.
- pocket – Yes.
- room – No.
- both – Works best.
- any – Sometimes.
- field – Sometimes.
- Corridors – Envisionary.
- keep ’em guessing – over and over.
- Over and Under
Over and Under bets are placed exactly the same as Flat Betting. The dominobet is whether the next number will be higher or lower than the previous one. Both the Over and Under bets work exactly the same way as Flat bets.
It is key to be able to bet both the Over and Under as there are quite a fewways you can do this. The most common way is to bet the lower side first, the numbers 1-18, and the higher side numbers 19-36. This leaves plenty of time for you to be able to bet if you reach a good position in the game. The high numbers are the best numbers to bet on as you have a better chance of hitting them than the low numbers, so these make great singles.
When you bet on the high numbers you need to make sure you bet large amounts, otherwise you could end up without a ticket if you run out of money. Also, the chance of someone else matching the high numbers is fairly low.
You can also bet on the four and ten. Although there is less probability of winning, these numbers have a high probability of being repeated four times in a row, which could pull a ticket ring in three of four times.
To increase your odds of winning, stay away from the betting areas that have the highest number. These are the 1-2-3, 2-4 and 5-6, as the chances of winning are the lowest. Steer clear of the high numbers on the wheel, as these are the most rarely won numbers.
