This is a progression system posted on the roulette forum by a player called geordie7. (We promised we’d give him a mention as he is letting us post his system here: thanks geordie7 (“may Newcastle United get promoted and win the Premiership and may Alan Shearer take over as Head Toon Honcho”).
We have tested this system at Platinum Play where they give you 1500 free bets:
This is a specific type of 3 progression that uses the column bets. You use a slightly supercharged sequence- not the usual Martingale which goes
1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128.
The Triple Martingale progresses like this:
1, 3, 9, 27, 81, 243.
As you can see, this is a pretty steep curve so this is not for the faint hearted. Best to wear waterproof pants when employing this one in other words.
There is a slight risk reducer in the system, however, in that you bet on 2 out of the 3 columns, so covering just under 2/3 of the table. It would be exactly 2/3 of course, but remember there’s a zero pocket. Geordie7 calls this a Buy 2 Get One Free or a Cubic Martingale, but we have renamed it The Triple Martingale as strictly speaking you don’t cube your bets, but multiply them by three on a losing streak (to recoup losses).
So here’s the science. Cover 2 of the 3 dozen bets on the table- and you’ll get a return of 2 to 1, if your number comes in. If you bet 2 and your number comes in on one of the dozens, you’ll be 4 up on one and 2 down on the other- so 2 up overall. if you hit the third column you’ll be 4 in the red of course.
In order to claw back any losses, work up the Triple Martingale. It’s a steep curve, but you are betting that you will only get hit with short losing streaks as you have around 65% of the table covered. And you are taking a punt that your winning streaks will be longer than if you were betting on the even chances.
This is a bit of a roller coaster ride as the progression is so steep, so we recommend that you start your sequence low so that you give yourself a good run and stop after 4 losses come what may (unless you are feeling very brave).
Remember, although you have covered 65% of the table, it is still perfectly feasible (statistically speaking) that you can hit the 35% of the table you are trying to avoid more than 4 times. So this is a system we would definitely use a “hit and run” strategy on. If you hit your profit target, do a runner and bank the profit reasonably quicky. Don’t wait for a bad run to wipe you out.
