Masse Egale System

Although the roulette community often discusses whether the Masse Egale strategy should even be considered a roulette betting system, it’s easily one of the simplest strategies out there. That doesn’t make it ineffective, though. Although it seems like a basic strategy when compared to some of the other systems we’ve covered, it’s used by many roulette players - whether online or in land-based casinos. In this tutorial, we’ll explain how the Masse Egale system works, whether it’s effective over the long run, and test it for ourselves so you can decide whether you this approach suits your style.

How the Masse Egale System Works

Masse Egale is a French word that translates to ‘equal mass’ in English. Despite its fancy name, we can’t say that this is a fancy betting strategy. In fact, it’s very simple and follows an extremely primitive principle. This is how it works:

  • The strategy is designed for inside bets, including six-line bets, corners, street bets, and straight-up bets. Although it can be used for outside bets too, it won’t have much of an effect.
  • All you need to do is choose your bet, choose the amount you will stake, and make the exact bet each round. And that’s it.

If you’re wondering why this strategy only works for inside bets, the answer lies in the question. For example, if you bet the exact same amount 1,000 times on red, you will likely end your session with a small gain or a small loss due to the low volatility of outside bets. That’s why the system is primarily designed for inside bets, which have high volatility. The whole point of the system is to make quick gains and quit while you’re in the green.

Testing the Masse Egale System in a Real-Life Scenario

The Masse Egale is one of the simplest systems to test because it doesn’t include any specific strategies. For our test, we took all the payout ratios and probabilities for the inside bets that we would hypothetically bet on and entered them in a spreadsheet. Then, we ran simulations for street bets, split bets, and straight-up bets, with randomly generated outcomes of 1,000 rounds. To our test, we used stakes of AU$1, AU$3, AU$5, and AU$10 and a starting bankroll of AU$1,000.

For our first test, we used straight-up bets, which have a payout ratio of 35:1 in European and French roulette, and a winning probability of 2.7%. Check out the results we received.

Putting the Masse Egale System to the Test

Expectedly, bigger stake amounts result in more amplified ups and downs, while the bankroll remains relatively stable with smaller stakes. For example, when using stakes of AU$10 for each bet, the bankroll grew by over AU$1,000 at one point, but it eventually plummeted down to AU$400 and ended the session with a net loss of around AU$500. When using stakes of AU$1, on the other hand, the bankroll grew at one point before settling down at the AU$1,000 mark - which indicates that the player didn’t experience a massive loss at any point, but never experienced a significant gain either. Interestingly enough, none of the players zeroed out throughout the session, and all of them could walk away with a profit at some point.

Next, we tested the Masse Egale strategy when using split bets, which have a payout ratio of 17:1 and a 5.4% chance of winning.

Similarly to split bets, the AU$1 bettor didn’t experience any massive gains or losses throughout the session. However, as you can see from the graph, the AU$10 bettor finished the session with a massive profit. The player lost around half of his initial bankroll in the opening rounds but managed to come back and even finish the session with a huge gain. The AU$3 and AU$5 bettors gravitated around the AU$1,000 mark throughout the session, with the AU$5 bettor finishing it with a significant loss.

For our third test, we used street bets, which have a payout rate of 11:1 and an 8.1% chance of winning.

Masse Egale System to the Test

As you can see from the graph, the results were very similar to the split bets test. The AU$10 bettor finished with a massive profit again, while the AU$1 bettor’s bankroll didn’t fluctuate very much throughout the session.

Based on our results, we can conclude that the Masse Egale strategy has some potential. As with any strategy, however, luck plays a huge role, and the most important part is walking away when the bankroll peaks. Additionally, these tests show that despite being very simple, the Masse Egale strategy can be more effective than some complex strategies - which can turn out to be way riskier. Naturally, bigger bets tend to be more effective when using this system.

Masse Egale System Shortcomings

The one and biggest pitfall of the Masse Egale strategy is maths. Namely, regardless of the stakes, it’s statistically impossible to win if you repeat the same bet over and over again. For example, the statistics show that you can expect to win 54 times over 1,000 rounds and lose 946 times - which equates to a net loss of 28 units. However, as with all strategies, luck plays a big role, and the outcomes are very different in practice. This is why good timing is crucial for this strategy.

If you have a big enough bankroll, you can use this system and make a profit if you get the timing right and end the session when your bankroll is at its peak.


Despite being one of the most primitive systems, our tests show that the Masse Egale strategy has some merit. As we saw from our AU$10 bettor, it’s possible to make a substantial profit if you choose the optimum stake and quit at the right time. However, the system will eventually result in a net loss in the long run.

Another downside of this system is that it makes the game really boring. It’s essentially repeating the same bet over and over again, and while some ‘roulette experts advise that you should avoid inside bets, our tests show that it’s possible to make money even by repeating the same bet.
