Betting systems guide

Together with the blackjack basic strategy there is one more important part that will help you to gain a victory. This part concerns Blackjack’s betting systems. Some gamblers consider that these systems scarcely will help you to get success, but others confirm that betting systems are quite useful. Of course it’s a matter of each one whether to believe or not, but you can at least try some of them. All systems are mathematically grounded and use either positive or negative progression. Basically, there are five major systems:

Paroli betting system

It is based on the positive progression. Its main idea is to increase winning amount on one unit. Let’s say, your first bet is 2$ and it is winning, if you decided to keep on, your next bet will be 4$ then 8$. If this is the final amount you would like to stake, then your next bet will start again from 2$.

Labouchere betting system

It works like that: at the beginning of the game player writes some sequence of numbers that can be absolutely different and makes a bet that is the sum of first and last number. As for example, sequence of numbers is “1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9”. First bet player makes on 10 (1+9) and so on.

Martingale Betting System

This system is advantageous because it will always give some profit in spite of loses. If your first bet which is 2$ is losing, second one should be twice bigger than the first one, so it will be 4$. You should increase your bets until the round will be winning.

Parlay betting strategy

Parlay system it the oldest one and grounds on positive progression. Parlay strategy is based on supplementation of winning amount and the amount of bet. Let’s say your bet is 100$ and it is winning. Casino pays you 3 to 2 what equals to 150$. Your next bet according to this system will be 250$.

1-3-2-6 Betting System

This is the positive progression betting system, which is based on the Paroli betting system. Its meaning is in fact that you can win 4 times in succession. The first bet is 1 unit, second one is 3, third 2 and the fourth 6 units.
