What is the Andrucci roulette strategy?

Based on the chaos theory, the Andrucci roulette strategy is a high-risk approach to the popular table game. This strategy relies on the idea that although roulette is a game of chance, over time numbers will have phases where they appear more regularly. We’d only recommend it for players with very large budgets or for anyone playing for free as this is a quick way to make a big loss.

How the Andrucci roulette strategy works

Begin by betting roughly 30-37 times on random even bets like red or black, odd or even, and 1-18 or 19-36. Make sure you note down exactly which number the ball lands on each time. Over the 30-37 bets, see which numbers appear the most and then begin making straight bets on one of the popular numbers. Repeat this bet on the same number for around 30-37 bets.

From this explainer you can see why this strategy can rapidly deplete your bankroll.

What are the pros and cons of the Andrucci strategy?


  • As it relies on straight-up bets, there’s a potential 35:1 payout
  • Once you’ve chosen a number, it’s easy to follow


  • The strategy tries to create logic from ‘hot numbers’ in a game that is entirely down to chance
  • It’s high risk as it relies on straight-up bets - the lowest odds in the game
  • It requires lots of money and spins to reap any rewards, and these aren’t guaranteed

Is this system for you?

There’s no evidence that this strategy works as roulette is a game of luck. Trying to apply logic to randomly generated numbers is misleading - and potentially harmful - to players. As the bets are on single numbers, the odds aren’t in your favor at 35:1. This means that you will likely endure long losing streaks, so will run into big losses a lot sooner than you would playing even bet strategies.

We’d recommend you try strategies that could help you manage your bankroll like Labouchere or D’Alembert instead.
