Blackjack Betting System

Blackjack Betting System

Basically there are three kinds of betting system.

The Martingale System

This is about 200 year old system, invented in late 17th century, this system instructs the player to double his or her bet each time he losses, this system is based on the assumption that the person will eventually win and he will recover his profit from the initial wagers.

With a beginning wager of $5.00 you would double your wager with each loss. IE: $5, $10, $20, $40 $80, etc. After a win your wager would drop back to $5.00. All wagers are recovered when you win a hand.

The casino table tends to impose limits to this system to eliminate the effectiveness. The simple reason as to why the limits imposition is done is because that after a long losing streak you will eventually hit the table maximum, this defeats the purpose of this system. This system also needs a considerable amount of bankroll to work.

If you started with a $5 dollar wager and lost your first four wagers and won your fifth, (without double downs or splitting your cards) you would be a measly 5 dollars ahead. This is simply not worth it, and if you are losing multiple hands in a row it is time to leave the table, not double your wagers. Also, losing double downs or splits can deplete your bankroll in a big hurry.

Progressive Betting System – 2 Level

This is one on the most simplest and widely used betting methodologies. This bet limit is decided in two tiers, the minimum and the maximum. With every loss the smaller amount is been betted and with every win the maximum is been placed. For example, say you set your minimum bet at $10 and your maximum at $50.

Start with a $10 dollar bet. If you win that hand you bet $50 your next wager. You then continue to bet $50 until you lose. After any loss you return to your minimum bet of $10. This is a basic, put solid progressive betting system.

Progressive Betting System – 5 Level

Here the bet amount is leveled in 5 slabs. This makes the progression count simpler and easy to understand.

This is another simple m88 asia, yet effective system, based on a 1,2,3,5 back to 1 progression. Example: For a $5 player, the betting levels would be $5,10,15, and 25. With this system you start with your $5 bet and progress to the next level when you win a hand.

If you lose a hand you drop back down to your original $5 wager. If you win four hands in a row you should then drop back down to your original $5 wager, hence the 1,2,3,5 back to 1 progression.

Lets say you lose your first three hands and then win your next three. Assuming a starting wager of $5 you would be ahead $15 at the end of six hands. If you were betting an equal amount on each had you would be even. This system is rewarding when you experience winning streaks but still doesn’t kill you with losing streaks.
