Betting Systems

There are some who say that they are able to understand the future outcome of games, they claim to do this by analyzing previous games. While this may be true for blackjack and similar strategy games, it is unverified for other card games. Below we take a close look at some of the most often used betting systems in casinos, and we make a quick analysis to show if they truly are successful or if they are not.

D’Alenbert gambling system

Following a losing bet, players embarking in this gambling strategy should only raise each bet per one unit. For each bet following a win, you should lower your ante by one unit. The logic that is behind this system entails that the severity will be detracted from a series of losses when a larger win comes. In theory this could work, in real life, it doesn’t!

Martingale gambling system

Martingale gambling strategies are commonly and popularly used in roulette. You choose your initial bet, and if that bet wins you bet the same amount again. If you lost the initial bet, then you double your next bet. If your win then, you bet that same amount as you did on the winning bet, again. If that in turn wins then you keep your winnings, but wager the original amount. The logic is that even with a large amount of losses, you are bound to have wagered the winning bet at some point. People who use this type of betting system believe that at some point you will have the winning bet, in which case you will get back, enough money to compensate the losses. However, this will not occur if the table’s max bet has already been reached, or if you run out of money.

Paroli gambling system

Dictates that after every loss you lower your wager, and after every win you raise your ante higher. Does not work in online casinos with a limit on how much you can bet on a game.

One-Three-Two-Six gambling system

One- Three-Two-Six system explains that your wagers should constantly be going through a pattern of being lowered and raised. Therefore, the One-Three-Two-Six system arranges that you raise and lower your wagers according to a unified system. This system of change ensures that you are lowering and raising your bets by multiplying your original bet one, three, two, or six, dependent on the successive winning bets.

Though many gamblers are often swayed by the idea of finding a betting system that could “cheat the system” and ensure they win every time, none of these games have been proven to be a verified or safe way to bet. For example, none of these betting systems take into consideration that some casino bets are, and should be understood to be, dependent on other events, specifically things that might have occurred at the table, before you joined the game.
