The Piquemouche Roulette System comes from the same family of systems as The Martingale. It is a Progression System, but one in which your bet acceleration is reduced.The key problem with the Martingale, is that bets can ramp up quite quickly if you suffer a string of losses- the danger with this is that you may hit the table limits, and thus be unable to double up your bet on the next round to cover any previous losses (this is the underlying theroy that underpins the Martingale).
In the Piquemouche, you double up your bets every three bets, on a losing streak, rather than after every loss. So you manage your risk down and you are able to play a longer progression.
Let’s take a look at a Martingale Progression where the initial bet is 1. The sequence would go as follows:
1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, …etc. At this point you will have probably hit the table limits unless you are a VIP player. your progression is limited to 9.
In the Piquemouche, your progression would look like this:
1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 4, 4, 4, 8, 8, 8 , 16, 16, 16, 32, 32, 32, etc. In this scenario, you can safely play a 27 run progression, giving you more room to move back into a winning spell if you have suffered a losing streak.
However, unlike the Martingale, you are not covering your losses on a single bet, should you suffer a losing streak. You need to move into a run of wins to do this. Let’s say for example, that you lose the first 3 bets in the example above. You would need to win the following 2 bets to move back into profit.
So The Piquemouche manages your risk down (viz-a-viz the Martingale) but does not cover your losses.
Many people use this system to set their initial bets higher. In the Martingale this would be a brave move, but the Piquemouche would enable a longer progression at the higher wager.
Let’s say we kicked off our progression with a 25 bet. If you employed the Martingale you would only be able to play the following before hitting tha table limits at most online casinos:
25, 50, 100, 200.
With the Piquemouche, you can play a sequence of 12:
25, 25, 25, 50, 50, 50, 100, 100, 100, 200, 200, 200
You can try this on any of the bets, in fact the longer progressions mean that it is a more sensible system to use for bets that win less frequently than the even money bets (columns for example).
However, just remember that this is a system like all the others. it is not going to improve your overall odds at the casino. it will only help you to play more methodically. Set your profit and stop loss targets and don’t get carried away with it.
