This is our favourite form of the Martingale, and probably our favourite system. We are not saying that this system is infallable- no roulette systems are- but we have had a certain amount of success with this.
Follow the usual Martingale pattern of doubling up your bets following a loss. We recommend that you start off with a bet of 1 to keep your risk low and to give yourself a substantial margin for a sequence of losses. Check the table limit on individual bets. So for example, on 888, you have a maximum betting limit of $200 on a specific spot. So you can progress your bets as follows:
This gives you a margin of 8 within which you must win one bet.
Then play the even odds bets. By this we mean
Now ths idea is to switch bets when you have won one Martingale Sequence.
Let’s look at the table below. These are actual numbers and bets. I was playing European Roulette at Ladbrokes when I landed this sequence.
|Bet Amount||Bet type||Result||Win||Running Total|
Now, let’s look at this in more detail.
At the beginning we bet red and got lucky and won. For the next bet, we keep the bet the same but switch to a different outside bet: odd, as we had even come up last time. We win again. I then switch back to even (with the benefit of hindsight I should have switched to 19-36 at this point).
I suffer a sequence of 5 losses before winning. As this is a Martingale system, I double my bet at each stage and eventually win on the 32 bet. (This illustrates what a roller coaster ride the Martingale is- your bets ramp up quickly to cover your losses. At this point I would only had enough room for one more bet in the sequence up to 64 as the Ladbrokes limit on single bets at their online roulette is 80).
Now my luck turns. I switch to 1-18 as the previous 2 were 19-36. Then I switch to odd, as the previous 2 were even. Phew.
The system is that you switch bets when you win to another even odds bet. You make your decision based on the run of results- which bet has been least represented.
It is worth pointing out, that in theory, it makes absolutely no difference to look at the history as the wheel has no memory. What you are basically betting on, is that you will not lose more than 7 times in a row (in this case). The system we have explained above, is purely to help you determine your next bet, and help mix things up a bit.
Your aim should be to make enough money to cover a complete losing sequence. Then you are moving into an area where you are basically playing with the casino’s money. So if you start off by buying 100 worth of chips, which is what we did in this case, you need to get your balance up to 227. This leaves you with your original 100, and 127 of the casino’s money to play around with the Martingale. At this point, you might want to increase your initial bet to 2 (but remember this leaves you with one less stage in your Martingale chain to cover any losses).
If you get a run of bad luck and your profit is wiped out, you still have your 100!
In the 3 minute session above, we ended up 5 up.
