The numbers around a roulette wheel are arranged so that high and low, red and black, and odd and even numbers appear alternately. If you look at the wheel closely, you’ll see that 0 and 00 are opposite each other. The first five numbers to the right of 0 are 2, 14, 35, 23 and 4. Diagonally across and to the left of 00 are the numbers 1, 13, 36, 24 and 3. This 12/6 System involves betting on those 12 numbers.

In numerical order, the numbers we use are 0, 00, 1, 2, 3, 4, 13, 14, 23, 24, 35 and 36. Those specific numbers form two six-number sections on opposite sides of the wheel and all 12 numbers can be covered with six split bets. Hence the 12’6 System.

Split bets are made by placing one or more chips on the line between two numbers. You can cover the above twelve numbers by simply placing your chip(s) on the line between each of these adjacent pairs on the table layout: 0-00, 1-4, 2-3, 13-14, 23-24, and 35-36. You are betting on two separate slices of the wheel, hoping the ball will come to rest in one of those two sections. Also, by betting a total of 12 numbers you cover almost one-third of the entire wheel. You have nearly a one-in-three chance of winning on every spin.

To make money with the 12/6 System the same number does not have to hit more than once. As long as, in three consecutive spins, any one of the 12 numbers comes up you’ll pocket a nice profit.

Unless you can afford to splurge, I suggest you find a table with $1 chips and a $5 minimum on inside bets. But no more than 60 $1 chips. Start by placing one chip between each of these six pairs of numbers: 0-00, 1-4, 2-3, 13-14, 23-24. and 35-36.

Repeat this same wager until you win. When one of your numbers comes up you will be paid 17 to 1 for a total of 18 chips. Now you bet back your win by placing three chips between each of your six sets of numbers. If you win again, the payoff will be 3 x 17 = 51 chips, plus you get back your 3-chip wager for a total of 54 chips.

This is where it gets exciting! You re-bet those 54 chips by placing nine chips on each of the same six pairs of numbers. Win once more and you’ll collect 162 chips (9 x 17= 153 chips plus the 9 you wagered). At this point you will have a net win of better than $100. If the dealer hasn’t already done so, I suggest you ask him or her to exchange 100 of your chips for one black ($100) casino chip. Then put it in your pocket or purse. Whatever happens from here on, you’ve ensured you won’t leave the table a loser.

You will find it helps if you choose a busy table, where the dealer takes longer between spins to sort and stack chips, this gives you more time to place your bets accurately.

Also try to position yourself at the center of the table. From here you can easily reach all the number fields, since you will be placing chips from top to bottom of the layout.
